THE 6.4L HEMI® V8 WITH VARIABLE CAM TIMING (VCT) AND MULTI-DISPLACEMENT SYSTEM (MDS).
Long-proven, the 6.4L HEMI V8 credentials start with Best-in-Class gas towing1 and Best-in-Class gas payload.1 Further advantages include VCT for consistent power across a wide torque band, the MDS FuelSaver Technology for four-cylinder efficiencies during highway cruising, the interactive Deceleration Fuel Shut-Off (iDFSO) feature—and a new 8-speed transmission. This powertrain delivers the performance and efficient use of fuel that won’t let you down. THE NEW ZF 8HP75 8-SPEED AUTOMATIC. New for Ram Heavy Duty and mated to the 6.4L HEMI V8, the fully electronic ZF delivers truly impressive engineering. Featuring more than 40 individual shift maps—to optimize performance, fuel economy and drivability—it also employs shift-by-wire technology to eliminate a mechanical linkage between the transmission and gear selector. The ZF also uses its 6th gear as a direct drive, while 7th and 8th gears feature efficient overdrive ratios. Inside, a compact and instrument panel-mounted rotary dial shifter helps free up space traditionally taken by a console- or column-mounted shifter.

ALL-AROUND TOWING POWER
TOWING IS ABOUT CAPABILITY, CONFIDENCE AND CONTROL. RAM HEAVY DUTY HAS JUST THE RIGHT PACKAGE.
The New 2019 Ram 2500/3500 trucks provide an impressive roster of Equipment Groups designed to serve a wide variety of needs—ranging from business and industry to serious off-road applications to demanding recreational use. Our engineers have taken multiple steps to make Ram a towing master. To that, add the optional Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Group— upgraded for 2019 to accommodate increased towing capacity—which includes fully integrated hitch-mounting hardware in the box floor: fifth-wheel pucks, gooseneck bolt plates and gooseneck centre castings. Ram is ready for just about anything. Towing capability is front and centre—and our packages and engineering reflect that importance. Features like Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking,4 Trailer Reverse Guidance View4 and the 360-degree Surround-View Camera4 all point to an emphasis on situational awareness—and many of these features are integrated into the centre-stack display, where you can monitor every aspect of the ride. At top right: an illustration of the new Trailer Reverse Guidance View,4 which uses multiple cameras to display both sides of the trailer on the centre-stack touchscreen. Just one example of how Ram technology keeps you informed and in the know. Tough components and technology round it out. To reduce brake pedal effort and complement the new, enhanced capability, the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty models feature All-New and upsized braking components to manage the increased max payload and towing ratings. The Class-Exclusive available Auto-Level Rear Air Suspension System1 plays right into towing need. Payload Mode addresses hauling, while the Towing Mode can lower the rear suspension (about an inch) for alignment between hitch and trailer. It ensures a parallel relationship between vehicle and trailer. The Bed Lowering Mode brings the rear suspension to its lowest, for easier trailer hook-up.
A PREMIUM TRUCK DESERVES PREMIUM LIGHTING.
You’ll see better and tow with greater confidence. Select models feature premium headlamps with multi-functional operations that include bi-functional LED low and high projector beams, plus LED supplemental high beams; LED daytime running lamps with signature lights and turn signals; and LED side markers. Best of all, these headlamps feature dynamic cornering—a 5-degree inboard swivel and sweeping 15-degree outboard swivel help improve illumination during curves and while turning.
CLASS-EXCLUSIVE: POWER CONVEX TRAILER-TOW MIRRORS. 1
Available, and again, multi-functional, these horizontal/vertical swivelling mirrors feature turn and running lamps, power-adjusting and heated mirrors, power-folding convenience, a blind-spot indicator, LED trailer spotlights and LED puddle lamps. New for 2019, the cameras in the mirrors make available the refined technology of the 360-degree Surround-View Camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance View,4 with the capability to pan left/right to better frame the trailer in the image—all displayed and controlled on the centre-stack touchscreen.
FULLY RECONFIGURABLE DRIVER INFORMATION DISPLAY.
It’s all right here. With a glance, you’re kept informed of what’s going on with your Ram Heavy Duty. Among the many features are the displays that communicate dozens of mechanical functions, the status of the Adaptive Cruise Control4 and real-time tire pressures. Most notably, you’ll appreciate info that’s critical when trailering—like the ability to modify settings of the available Trailer Brake Controller to match the terrain you’re travelling. It’s all easily accomplished by the settings and controls on the centre stack.
