With the latest crop of trucks joining the rest of the industry in offering advanced active safety systems as well as connectivity features, you have to try to not to find a pickup that’s to your liking.
If you’re more of a RAM type of guy/gal rather than a fan of the Chevy Silverado or the Ford F-150, know that you can spec your truck in lots of different ways, from the rugged Rebel all the way to something more sporty like this Patriot Blue Big Horn.
The latter comes with Mopar’s 20″ aluminum wheels, splash guards, aluminum running boards and side graphics, which are available in Grey Metallic or black.
You get a little something extra even for the interior, with all-weather floor mats, more rigid sidewalls and stainless steel embossed sill guards. Aside from that, the Big Horn’s 5.7-liter HEMI engine can sound off through Mopar’s 5-inch custom exhaust tips, available in either gloss black or chrome.
The Rebel on the other hand is what you might want to take if you’re driving over really rough terrain. It has 33″ tires, a lifted suspension with Bilstein shocks and a locking rear differential.
Whichever truck you choose, as long as it says RAM on the front and 1500 on the sides, you can benefit from features such as the 12″ touchscreen display with split-screen capability, the fourth-generation Uconnect system, a Harman Kardon premium audio system, 360-degree Surround View Camera, optional wireless charging, plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility – with either of the two available touchscreens (8.4 or the 12-inch).
Safety tech includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Go and Hold, Forward Collision Warning, Ready Alert Braking, Lane Departure Warning and more. In total, the 2019 RAM 1500 has more than 100 safety and security features.
