The Legendary Engine That Could

MotorTrend is an American automobile magazine. First published in 1949, America's most trusted adviser in automobile reviews continues to be the voice of reason in a competitive and demanding market. Recently, MotorTrend has named the 2019 Ram 1500 as its famed "Truck of the Year", and we here at your local Dodge Ram dealer, McCords Dodge of Longview, couldn't be happier about it. 

Boasting stylish, advanced design, excellence in engineering, performance and value as some of its benchmark features, it's not hard to see why the Ram 1500 took home truck gold. Let's look at some of those features now:

EXTERIOR STYLE: 7 different grille and 3 different head-and-taillamp designs to choose from, in addition to 15 wheel designs, giving buyers a wide selection of appearance options to fit their style. "I love the styling. It's like the Viper of Rams." -road test editor for MotorTrend, Chris Walton

INTERIOR STYLE: Each level of trim comes furnished with at least one two-tone cabin treatment, adding unique styling at every price point. "This is a luxury interior. Look at this wood! This leather! The metal, stitching, design, attention to detail! The leather on the grab handles!" Other dealers "could learn a thing or two by spending an afternoon in this cabin."

TECH: 3 different versions of Uconnect infotainment system, including a choice of an 8.4 or Tesla-like 12.0 inch touchscreen add a touch of modern simplicity, while giving buyers options that suit their needs and desires. 

Engineering: The Ram 1500 boasts 3 engine options to choose from: a 3.6L Pentastar V6, the 3.0L EcoDiesel, and the legendary 5.7L HEMI V8 with fuel saver technology. Each engine has available 4-wheel drive. The lighter truck provides a smoother ride, while still offering up to 12,750 pounds of towing capacity and 2,320 pounds of payload, according to MotorTrend. Available E-Torque engine and aerodynamic engineering makes the Ram 1500 the most efficient V8 in its class. 

Value: With Tradesman models starting at an MSRP of $33,390, and a wide range of trim levels and options available, the 2019 Ram 1500 stands head and shoulders above the competition for value and selection. 
"The Ram 1500 hits the bullseye. No pickup in the segment better balances capability, efficiency, value, and quality. The Ram 1500 retains its old-school appeal while being refreshingly modern in style and substance. It's refined and sophisticated without surrendering its dirty-fingernails roots." -from Motortrend.com
