2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star Trim in Dallas

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Lone StarThe 2019 Ram 1500 debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2018, and since then has been making headway with a new announcement every few weeks. Just recently, details and media about the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn were released. Now, the original “Texas Truck,” the 2019 Ram 1500 has one more job to do – get work done, so say “hello” to the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star.

Popping up at the 2018 Dallas Auto Show, the new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star trim received a heart-felt welcome when it debuted. The Ram 1500 Lone Star trim is the brand’s top selling truck in Texas, so it only made sense to make its first stop the heart of Texas. With working hands in mind, the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star comes with a new look and many options for customizing one’s pickup truck to their wants and need.

To stand out from the rest of the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup, the Ram 1500 Lone Star comes standard with bright front and rear bumpers, chrome door handle centers, a bright grille surround with billet inserts, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and fog lamps for the exterior. Consumers have the option of outfitting the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star with a Crew Cab or Quad Cab, and there’s a 5’7” or 6’4” truck bed available Crew Cab configurations; only a 6’4” truck bed can be installed when going for the Quad Cab configuration. Consumers also have the ability to choose a 4×4 or 4×4 drivetrain thanks to the new off-road features available on the new 2019 Ram 1500. When the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star is first made available, it will only be available with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, but there is speculation that the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine will be made available at a later date.

When it comes to the interior, consumers have a lot more options to configure the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star. For one, consumers may choose the choice of a six-passenger bench in the front or the option of installing five-passenger bucket seats. Has that ever been an option on a Ram light duty pickup truck? It sounds like a blend of the Ram 1500 and a Ram ProMaster City cargo van. Of course, the standard seating option will be the usual 60/40 split rear bench seat.

Then there’s a whole lot of package options available with the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star trim. Many of these include function-specific enhancements to further advance one’s ability to get the job done with the 2019 Ram 1500. Package options include a Bed Utility Group, a 4×4 Off-road Group, a Protection Group, Trailer Tow Mirrors and Brake Group, Max Towing Package, and Premium Lighting Group. There are also several options to further the ability to configure the Lone Star pickup truck with the class-exclusive Active Level Air Suspension, electric-locking rear axle, Blind-spot Monitoring, and 20-inch aluminum wheels.

Keep in mind, all of these options are available on just the Ram 1500 Lone Star trim. The 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck still offers many great features even in its raw form. The new 2019 Ram 1500 has the strongest frame of any Ram truck to date. The truck’s frame is made of 98 percent high-strength steel, but somehow the truck managed to shed 225 pounds by making greater use of aluminum on various truck components.

Standard on the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine and a 3.6L V6 powertrains is an eTorque system that provides hybrid capabilities and additional power. Without the eTorque system, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 is capable of generating 410 lb-ft of torque, but with the eTorque system, it gets an additional 130 lb-ft of torque at its disposal.

Don’t forget about all the great tech either. For the first-time ever on a pickup truck, a 12-inch touchscreen is available. The new screen provides access to the Uconnect 4 infotainment system and it is able to display two screens at once with two separate functions or take up the whole screen with navigation. Uconnect on an 8.4-inch touchscreen is of course still available for those that prefer the old cabin setup. The 2019 Ram 1500 will be the first vehicle to host the new Sirius 360L platform, a next-generation Sirius that learns what the user listens to and can be accessed virtually anywhere. Some added safety has also been added, a 360 surround view camera has been added to the truck and it provides the driver with a birds-eye view of the vehicle, and the available blind spot system with trailer coverage helps drivers feel more at ease while on the road.

The 2019 Ram 1500 just keeps getting more exciting. Yee-haw! Tell us what you think about it on Miami Lakes Ram social media.

A Successful Incentive: Why the Dodge/Ram Split Adds Up

Ram logo

In October 2009, we saw a split between Dodge RAM dealers and their respective companies. At first, people thought this was an absolutely horrid decision; some still might think that. Some still have had no idea it happened, and some realized it was actually beneficial. Typically, breaking-up is hard to do. In this case, it was one of those situations where breaking-up was mutually beneficial, and continues to be beneficial today.
