Auto123 Names the New RAM 1500 Pickup of the Year for 2019

Take it from one of the nation's top online sources for new and used car research, reviews, auto shows, news, and automotive media: RAM trucks have come a long way for the new model year.

According to a recent FCA Canada press release, at a ceremony in Toronto during the third full week in November, the esteemed panel of Auto123.com judges, comprised of automotive journalists from across Canada, met to deliver a verdict that had been a long time coming. As last year's winner was Ford F-150, followed by finalists like Nissan TITAN XD and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, the nod was especially rewarding for the team here at Estevan Motors Ltd. After all, we know the latest RAM 1500 for the full-size light-duty flagship that it is -- a pickup with no compromises.

RAM broke the mold for 2019 when it built its pickup so, with a lighter-weight, highly durable, and stiff chassis and body structure. The truck offers the most safety, security, and driver-assist features in the segment to boot, ranging from adaptive cruise control to automatic emergency brakes and a blind-spot monitor, among others. It's also exceptional when it comes to fuel economy thanks to an all-new eTorque system, an option for both Pentastar&xae; V6 and HEMI® V8 engines. But above all, 2019 RAM 1500 is a workhorse, with a 5,761-kg (12,750-pound) max towing capacity and 1,043-kg (2,300-pound) max payload support -- ratings that show it ready for any work orders of the Estevan day.

Of course, take one for a ride here on Fourth Street, and you'll find it a capable mobile office, too, home to an optional, new, and largest-in-class 12-inch Uconnect 4C infotainment system with split-screen abilities and 360-degree camera viewing, an available 900-watt Harman Kardon audio system, and more.
