Nice selection of 2019 Ram 1500 Michigan models for sale at our dealerships in central and western Michigan area.
The 2019 Ram 1500 gets improved fuel economy by using an eTorque mild hybrid system on the 3.6-liter V-6 and the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engines. The eTorque system uses a belt-drive motor generator unit with 48 volt battery pack to enable start/stop function at stop lights, and a short-term torque assist and brake energy regeneration technique to recharge the battery pack. The eTorque system adds up to 90 lb.-ft. of torque to the 3.6-liter V-6 and up to 130 lb.-ft. to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 for improved around town use and fuel economy. There is a heat exchanger system that warms lubricants, and maximizes engine and transmission efficiency during the warm-up periods.
The 2019 Ram 1500 has a new TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers improved efficiency from both the transmissions and the engines with more powerful control computers. There is a new electronic locking rear differential that is standard on the 4 wheel drive off-road package and the Rebel. This new rear end is an extra cost option on the other Ram models. The 2 wheel drive models powered by the 5.7 liter HEMI engine can get the optional Max Tow Package which allows towing of up to 12,750 pounds with an optional 3.92 final drive ratio. The Max Tow Package has a Dana Super 60 center section in the rear axle and an open differential with a 256-millimeter gear set which uses 35-spline axle shafts.
