2019 Ram 1500 Trim Levels
The all-new Ram 1500 is once again setting the standard for a light-duty pickup which offers not only outstanding performance in its class, but leading levels of technology, comfort, and luxury. Ram knows that, just because you want your pickup to be rugged and hard-working, that doesn’t mean it can’t also be comfortable and fun to drive.
With a complete redesign this year, drivers across Richmond, Detroit, and New Baltimore are really excited about what the new model brings to the table, and how they can customize it to meet their demands. Let’s break down the 2019 Ram 1500 trim levels and see what you’ll get at the base level, all the way through the range topper.
Ram 1500 Trim Levels
This year’s 2019 Ram 1500 trims total to seven levels: the base Tradesman, mid-range HFE, Big Horn, Rebel, the high-end Laramie and Longhorn, and the range-topping Limited. It’s also available in different body styles and bed length configurations, and a number of different engine options.
Most 1500 pickups will run on a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which kicks out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. At every level but the HFE, you can opt for a 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Again, at every level except the HFE, 4WD is available as an option.
At most trim levels, you’ll get a standard quad cab seating up to six passengers, with an option for a crew cab with a larger backseat and full-sized back doors. The quad cab comes with a 6’4” bed length, and crew cabs offer a choice between the larger bed or a 5’7” short bed.
While technically the Tradesman is an entry-level trim and the HFE is the first step up, in actuality, both serve an entry-level function. The Tradesman is a workhorse with a 5-inch touchscreen Uconnect® infotainment system, vinyl flooring and upholstery, Class III trailer hitch, and sway control, along with a number of comfort and convenience features as well. These include automatic headlights, push-button start, backseat USB charge port, Bluetooth®, cruise control, and others.
The HFE has Tradesman equipment, but a more fuel-efficient version of the V6 engine, and it doesn’t come with available 4WD.
The mid-level trims, starting with the Big Horn trim, give you the Tradesman equipment, but add a bunch more luxury, convenience, safety, and driver aid features. At these levels, you’ll get smartphone integration for Android and Apple devices. You get access to bed utilities, larger fuel tanks, underbody skid plates, and others.
If you’re looking to off-road, look to the Rebel trim, which gives you off-road tires, tow hooks, specially tuned shocks and suspension, electronic locking rear axle with larger ratio, and hill descent control. Adding to the performance further is a Class IV receiver, plus a number of comfort and convenience features from LED headlights to power driver seat and more.
Starting with the Laramie level, you start to see true luxury features added. At this level, you get things like leather upholstery, power split-bench front seats, heated and cooled front seats, driver memory settings, power adjust pedals, heated steering wheel, and others. All of it combines to make you feel like you’re driving a luxury car with the performance of a pickup.
The Longhorn takes it to a whole other level with convenience features like automatic wipers, automatic high beams, and upgraded luxury touches. You get upgraded leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, for example.
The high-end Limited gives you all the bells and whistles; everything above, plus, a whole range of other top-notch touches. Chrome exterior trim, power side steps, leather bucket seats, and more are available here.
