Performance
 
The 2019 Ram 1500 is ready to meet the power needs of any driver. It comes equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 305 horsepower or an optional 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine which produces 395 horsepower. The V6 and V8 engines come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission. One of the New 2019 Ram 1500 technological changes is the introduction of a hybrid engine, which uses the Fiat's Chrysler Automobiles eTorque system. This provides energy to a 48-volt lithium-ion battery. It allows for quicker and smoother starts and adds additional torque for each engine (90 lb-ft added to the V6 and 130 lb-ft added to the V8). In addition, the redesign of the 2019 Ram 1500 allows for a more aerodynamic vehicle. Improved active grille shutters and a front splitter that, when traveling above 35 mph, lowers to decrease drag provides for a smoother ride and saves on fuel.
