2019 F-150 Reguar-Cab Short-Bed

2019 Ford F-150 with a regular cab and short bed.

 

It took a recent conversation with an old friend to jog my memory. But the more she talked, the clearer my recollections became. There was a candy bar sold in the mid Seventies called Seven Up, and I had purchased many of them back in the day.

2019 Ram Heavy Duty 2500 Limited Mega Cab

Consumer Guide Automotive It wasn’t so much a matter of “if” as a matter of “when” … and “who.”

Over the past couple of decades, those following heavy-duty pickups have been treated to a race similar to that enjoyed by car enthusiasts for years. This one, however, wasn’t about horsepower; it was about torque. And though all the top contenders kept leap-frogging each other toward that magic 1000 lb-ft finish line, it was Ram that got there first.

2019 Ram Heavy Duty

Detroit Auto Show LogoWe’re not going to bury the lede on this one: the updated 2019 Ram Heavy Duty trucks now boast an available 1000 lb-ft of torque. This translates to what Ram claims is “the most powerful, most capable truck in the segment.”

That claim comes by way of a redesigned Cummins 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine and brings with it a host of impressive numbers. Most impressive is a towing capacity of up to 35,100 pounds and payload of 7680 pounds when properly equipped.

2019 Ram 1500 Hemi with eTorque

Consumer Guide Automotive In a quest for better fuel economy in traditionally thirsty trucks, Ram takes a page from the automotive playbook and banks on … a hybrid.

Well, a mild hybrid, actually, and while unique in today’s marketplace, it’s not the first.

eTorque

The Ram eTorque system boosts torque output while also improving fuel economy.

With automakers scrambling to improve their corporate average fuel-economy (CAFE) numbers in advance of stringent federal targets—the loftiest of which were originally scheduled to kick in for 2025—it may seem counterintuitive that the redesigned-for-2019 Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 are actually growing in size, but they are.
