Ram recently revealed the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman model at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you’re a truck fan then you’re in luck because this new Tradesman model of the pickup is better than ever. The Tradesman is aimed at those who use their trucks for vocational use. So whether you use your truck for your small business, construction job, or as a way to tow the boat on weekends, let’s take a look at how the all-new Tradesman model has been upgraded to better suite your needs.
First off, the all-new Ram 1500 has reduced its overall weight by 225 pounds. They accomplished this by using high-strength steel and unique engineering techniques. This work truck may be lighter on its feet but it’s certainly not weaker, in fact it’s much stronger. The previous version of the 1500 had a max towing capacity of 10,620 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,880 pounds. The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman has the outstanding capability to tow up to 12,750 pounds with a max payload of 2,300 pounds when properly equipped. That’s all the power you need for towing a trailer or hauling lumber.
“Ram launched the original Tradesman model in 2011, and our work truck customers have enjoyed Ram’s benchmark durability ever since,” said Head of Ram Brand Mike Manley. “Ram has the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton truck and the Ram 1500 Tradesman model will continue to deliver confidence for hard-working people who rely on it every day.”
The new 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman will be available in two cab styles and two bed lengths: Crew Cab short bed (5 ft., 7 in.), Quad Cab with a 6 ft., 4 in. bed, or Crew Cab with an optional 6 ft. 4 in. bed. A 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine with an eTorque mild hybrid system will be standard. The optional powertrain is a 5.7L HEMI V-8 with or without eTorque. Both 4×2 or 4×4 options are available.
The Tradesman has some great standard interior features including a Uconnect 5.0 system with a 5-inch screen, hands-free calling, a free year of SiriusXM Radio, a 12-volt power outlet, three USB ports, automatic headlamps and one auxiliary port. The truck comes with 40/20/40 split bench seats available in either vinyl or cloth and six-person capability. Interior colors include Black/Diesel Gray with either standard vinyl or carpeted flooring.
Standard equipment includes a 3.21 rear axle ratio, a 160-amp alternator, a 730-amp maintenance-free battery, a cargo bed lamp, black grill and black steel bumpers, rear view camera, tilt and telescopic steering column, locking tailgate, power door locks, power windows, remote keyless entry and theft-prevention, and much more.
