It’s not easy to narrow down your list of potential pickup targets, as there are currently a number of worthwhile truck options on the market. However, if you’ve done your research, we’re sure you’ll eventually land on Ram trucks and the 2019 Ram 1500. There’s a good reason why the nameplate has continued to be among one of the most popular offerings in the segment.
However, just because you landed on the 2019 Ram 1500, your difficult decisions haven’t come to an end. Rather, you’ll have to choose from the half-dozen model offerings, each of which provide their own specific features and capabilities. No matter what you’re looking for in your brand-new pickup, you’ll surely find that attribute in one of Ram’s offerings.
Below, we explored each of these available models. Take a look at which variation best fits your needs, and you’ll be fully prepared when it’s time to head into that Ram dealership.
This variation of the 2019 Ram 1500 may be the least expensive of the offerings, but it’s still one of the most impressive pickups in the entire segment. We’re not even talking about the incredible 395 horsepower that’s emanating from the engine, nor the accompanying 12,750-pound towing capacity. Rather, we’re talking about all of the technological amenities that engineers managed to include in the pickup.
Specifically, the Tradesman is equipped with the Uconnect 3 system, which is accessible via the five-inch touchscreen. This unit provides drivers with a whole lot of usable amenities, including Voice Command capabilities and Bluetooth Streaming Audio.
The other technological offerings influence safety and convenience. The ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera allows drivers to monitor everything that’s happening behind their pickup at all times, allowing them to better avoid any obstacles. The Electric Park Brake is just as important, as it will optimize the brakes when the pickup is parked on a hill.
The remote keyless entry means you’ll never have to fumble with your keys as you’re attempting to enter your new Ram truck, while the Power Door Locks and Front Windows will scare away any unwelcome guests.

This version of the 2019 Ram 1500 is more focused on cosmetics, as the majority of the added amenities tend to have an impact on the interior and exterior aesthetics of the ride. For instance, the eye-catching 18-inch aluminum wheels add an air of sportiness to the nameplate, while the chrome grille, chrome front bumper, chrome rear bumper, and chrome door handles add some opulence.
Drivers will also appreciate the leather-wrapped steering wheel, which gives the pickup a bit of a luxurious look. The class-exclusive in-floor storage unit provides drivers with another place to store their precious cargo, while the exterior fog lamps will make it more than easy to see on those dark and stormy nights. Finally, thanks to the powerful engine, drivers can anticipate a best-in-class V8 towing capacity of 11,340 pounds.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie takes the technological amenities that were included in the Tradesman to a whole new level. For instance, the five-inch infotainment system has been upgraded to the UConnect 4 system, which is accessible via an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Thanks to the accompanying Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, drivers will always have the ability to seamlessly connect their smartphone to the unit. The vehicle also allows drivers to opt for the largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen. If you’re going to be using this system to jam out to your favorite tunes, you’ll also appreciate the inclusion of the nine Alpine speakers.
The pickup is also equipped with the seven-inch Premium Driver Information Digital Cluster Display, which showcases important vehicle information right in front of the driver. Instead of having to strain your neck in order to see vehicle diagnostics or your fuel efficiency, it’s all listed right in front of you in the highest-possible resolution.
Meanwhile, there are a number of amenities that will ultimately impact driver comfort. These include
- Heated/ventilated 12-way front seats
- Rear seat center armrest
- The brand’s memory feature (which is compatible with Driver Seat, Exterior Mirrors, Pedals, and Radio stations)
We’re not entirely sure how Ram came up with the name for the Rebel version of the 2019 1500. We’d guess it has to do with the unconventional exterior inclusions, amenities that ultimately make the nameplate one of the most unique offerings in the class.
For instance, the LED headlamps and other exterior lights will provide optimal vision when traveling at night, while the ELocker Electronic Locking Rear Differential assures that you can control your pickup at all times. Of course, the 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Tires will also help to keep the utmost traction and handling.
Meanwhile, the tow hooks will make it more than easy to haul anything behind your pickup (something you’ll want to take advantage of considering the 11,470-pound towing capacity). Of course, you can also rely on your truck bed, which includes fully-dampening technology.
Finally, the 12-way power driver seat assures that the truck’s operator always has their optimal vantage point of the road. The accompanying four-way power lumbar adjustment and rear power sliding window will also promise the driver optimal comfort throughout their journey.
This rugged edition of the 2019 Ram 1500 promises drivers one of the most enjoyable driving experiences out there. It starts with the brand’s Uconnect 4C NAV system, which provides an assortment of applications (as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility) via the 8.4-inch touchscreen.
Meanwhile, the LED Project Headlamps will light up everything that’s in front of you, meaning you should never be wary of driving off the beaten path. If you do decide to travel offroad, the 20-inch aluminum wheels should cut through any obstacles that you come across.
In an appreciated twist, engineers adorned this variation of the pickup with a number of high-quality materials. Drivers will be able to impress with premium leather seats, chrome side steps, and “genuine wood, leather, and metal-trimmed” amenities.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Limited seemingly provides all of the features and amenities that could possibly be included inside of the nameplate. For instance, instead of the 8.4-inch touchscreen, the pickup is equipped with the largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen, which includes the smartphone compatibility.
If drivers are going to be mostly relying on this system to play their favorite tunes, then they’ll surely appreciate the available 19-speaker Harman Kardon Sound System, which provides a one-of-a-kind listening experience. If you’re instead going to be sending texts or making phone calls during the majority of your journey, you’ll be able to keep your gadget fully juiced thanks to the wireless charging pad.
The Blind Spot Monitoring system will provide the driver with an extra set of eyes while they’re traveling on the highway, while the Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection will allow drivers to anticipate everything that’s happening behind their pickup at all times. Therefore, if you’re behind the wheel of the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited, you’ll never have to worry that accidents will compromise the aesthetics of your new purchase.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Limited truly provides it all, and that’s why the nameplate continues to be among one of the most desirable offerings in the entire segment. This is certainly one of the most luxurious Ram trucks around.
