What qualities make up a good pickup truck? We think it’s the combination of top-notch hauling capability with innovative technology inside and an eye-appealing design. And we’re so happy to introduce the 2019 Ram 1500 that gives you all of that and then some!
That’s because this pickup truck has been updated a lot between its improved engineering, impressive infotainment system, redesign look inside & out and more than 100 safety & security features. With that being said, let’s take a look at what’s new for the Ram 1500.
The first impression you’ll get of the 2019 Ram 1500 when seeing it at our dealership serving Norwalk CT is the revamped design theme called “unbreakable interlocking” due to its emphasis on a pairing of enhanced appearance & aerodynamics. A chiseled Ram’s head logo and “RAM” grilles make up the new face of the 1500, along with the all-new full LED adaptive front-lighting system with twin bi-functional projector headlamps, fog lamps & tail lamps.
You can feel more at home inside of the new Ram 1500 since it gives you a 4” longer length compared to its predecessor for a spacious interior to provide additional features and passenger comfort.

This Uconnect system also offers the following new-for-2019 features to make your driving experience even more fun:

One that uses either the 8.4” or 12” Uconnect touchscreen is the Surround View Camera since it shows a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of vehicle to make parallel parking or getting out of your driveway or parking space so easy.
Among the other crash-prevention technologies that are available for this pickup are:
Now to why many people will choose the 2019 Ram 1500 over other pickup trucks in the Westchester NY & Fairfield County CT area: the power. Even though it weighs about 225 lbs less than its predecessor, you’ll find that the maximum payload you can haul has increased up to 2,300 lbs and the maximum towing capacity ups the ante to 12,750 lbs.
Some of the new technologies integrated to make for the smoothest ride wherever you take your truck on or off the road include:
