Canada only Ram 1500 unveiled at AutoShow
Built exclusively for Canada, 2019 Ram 1500 Sport features unique exterior design cues, interior treatments and custom options plus a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 power.
Ram Truck unveiled the all-new and exclusive-to-Canada 2019 Ram 1500 Sport during media day of the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto.
Ram 1500 Sport is designed specifically for Canadian truck buyers, who have made the ‘Sport’ trim the country’s most popular Ram light-duty model.
The all-new Ram Sport features unique exterior design cues, interior treatments and custom options.
It will offered as either as a Quad or Crew Cab.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport is distinguished foremost by its monochromatic exterior, available in nine colours and set off by a black billet bar grille with R-A-M lettering. The all-new, standard bi-LED headlamps wear black internal bezels and are complemented by LED signature daytime running lamps and LED fog lamps.
The hood badging and side window surrounds are also blacked-out. An optional Sport hood is available for customers who crave a more aggressive look.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport rides on standard black 20-inch aluminum wheels, with optional 22-inch ‘Black Noise’ alloys (available for the first time on 4×4 models).
The all-new, dampened aluminum tailgate with integrated spoiler features black badging, plus the new, chiseled all-black Ram’s head logo and a ‘Sport’ badge – reserved exclusively for the Canadian marketplace.
An integrated dual exhaust completes the pickup truck’s “Canada-only” look.
A 5.7-litre Hemi V8 is standard with 395 hp and 410 lb/ft of torque with performance-enhancing and fuel-saving technologies that include variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation.
A new generation of TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is standard and includes more than 40 individual shift maps to optimize fuel economy, performance and drivability.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport is offered as a 4×2 or 4×4 with an on-demand transfer case with four operating ranges: Auto, 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The Auto range optimizes the distribution of torque based on vehicle driving conditions, without driver intervention.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport goes on sale in the second quarter of 2018. Pricing and fuel economy will be announced at a later date.
