    Hi All:

    The 2019 RAM 1500 eToruqe recently earned the 2019 Green Truck of the Year by Green Car Journal at the 50th annual San Antonio Auto & Truck Show in San Antonio, Texas.

    The eTorque mild hybrid system is one of several changes made to the 2019 Ram 1500, including upgraded TorqueFlite 8-speed AT, strategic weight reductions and aero improvements.

    The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 leads the full-size truck segment with the most safety and security features and now delivers significant gains in fuel efficiency with an all-new eTorque system in both V6 and V8 configurations. Overall weight for the Ram 1500 has been reduced by 225 pounds. As the truck’s backbone, the frame uses advanced materials and engineering to eliminate 100 pounds while increasing stiffness and durability for 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. The new Uconnect 4C with a 12-inch touchscreen leads the pickup world with technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L. Active safety and security systems join the technology onslaught with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and Blind-spot Monitoring.

    The 2019 Ram 1500 has a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $31,695 plus $1,645 destination fee. I have seen mid-trim 2019 RAM 1500 Longhorn Crewcabs with $10k+ off the sticker a well.

    Personally I would wait for the EcoDiesel to be inserted as that is the full size pickup truck fuel saver.
