Ram and Mopar at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Miami Lakes Automall Ram Mopar 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Word is, Ram and Mopar will be putting on a product presentation at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show on Friday, February 9th, 2018. Given Mopar’s history, we think we already know what it is. But first, why is this news? Unless getting into the Chicago Auto Show, then does it really matter? Well that’s why this year, Ram and Mopar will be hosting a webcast live from the Chicago Auto Show at 11 am Eastern/10 am Central.

About the Mopar Brand

Mopar first started out as a custom auto parts business but soon became the one-stop shop for all things performance. Known for their performance parts catalog, Mopar can exchange the exhaust for the cat-back exhaust for a more aggressive sound and less tension, install a cold air intake system for more horsepower, or even trim the interior upholstery with Katzkin leather interior seating for amazing comfort. They’re also known for several vehicle firsts.

For the first time-ever, automobiles came with vehicle-information apps, apps for smartphones that can let drivers know about the condition of their vehicle, even from afar thanks to Mopar’s innovation. Mopar was also the first to market a new interactive vehicle tracking device that sends owner a text when the vehicle is driven too fast or too far based on pre-set parameters; several products and Chevrolet’s Teen Driver surely got the idea from here. Wi-fi was first made possible to consumers with a wireless hotspot by Mopar, and Mopar also started the paperless owner’s manual trend, introducing them as digital forms that one can view on their smartphone. If owning an FCA vehicle and in need of service, Mopar also developed the wiADVISOR, a tablet-based service lane tool for faster service via dealership service departments.

Here’s a Closer Look at the Redesigned 2019 Ram 1500

Miami-Lakes-Automall-new-2019-Ram-1500

One of America’s favorite pickup trucks, the Ram 1500, was just completely redesigned. The new Ram 1500 has a lighter frame, more fuel efficient and more powerful engine options, a huge new touchscreen, a ton of new entertainment and tech features, and the truck’s exclusive tailgate storage system, the RamBox Cargo Management System, was also improved. It’s too early to tell now because the truck has only been on display for the public to see at the North American International Auto Show, but all of those new changes may be enough to make it America’s favorite pickup truck.

Improved Exterior and Capabilities

So how does the new 2019 Ram 1500 look? Recently revealed this month at the Detroit Auto Show, the new Ram 1500 is larger, wider, weighs less and it has a higher payload and towing capacity, and all of those features are sure to attract buyers. The 2019 Ram 1500 is 225 pounds lighter and it’s frame is made of 98 percent high-strength steel that has enough capability to tow up to 12,700 pounds.

Though there’s no confirmation whether or not the Ram 1500 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine will be produced, but a new eTorque mild-hybrid system has been announced for both the 3.6-liter V-6 engine and 5.7-liter V-8 engine. Both engines have increased torque along with a maximum payload capacity of 2,200 pounds. Also, engineers worked hard to even improve the amount of exterior noise that can be heard in the cabin. For example, with the V-8 model, engineers worked on reducing outside and engine noise in the cabin by 67 decibels, which is quieter than the sound of a dial tone of a telephone.

All That Leg Room

A great perk of any truck is not only the available space in the truck bed or towing capabilities, but having a spacious truck bed is also important. The 2019 Ram 1500 provides even more cubic space and leg room in both the front seats and second row. Interior storage has never been as plentiful thanks to the re-configurable center console that provides up to 12 storage combinations.

Tech Upgrades For Days

Think Tesla is the only brand producing large navigation infotainment screens? Wrong. Not to be outmatched, the 2019 Ram 1500 has an available 12-inch touchscreen with split-screen feature and great navigation capabilities. A bird’s-eye camera system and Sirius XM’s new 360L service, which enables individual streaming for subscribers, round out some of the new features.

As the updates in the interior go, must noticeable changed are the speakers that now are re-positioned to improve overall sound quality. The new truck is also available with a powerful and crisp 19-speaker, 900-watt Harman Kardon audio system. Additionally, an optional RamBox Cargo Management System comes with a three-prong 115-volt plug.   

The Bottom Line

Ram has been diversifying the number of options on the Ram 1500 lineup for several years, and the new Ram 1500 has features for every type of consumer or business. In addition to style and power, other features like automatic braking, adaptive cruise control and better fuel economy are the perks of bringing in a new 2019 Ram 1500 into your life or business. From luxury upgrades to modern tech to a durable cabin,  the Ram 1500 is more than just a pickup truck.
