There are many new light-duty, full-size pickups out there. When it comes to towing a trailerful, hauling a work crew, making tool and outboard equipment deliveries, and keeping you and your quarry safe through it all, you'd be hard-put to find a match for the new 2019 RAM 1500. It's got one of the most powerful sets of powertrain options out there for nearly any job, not to mention a ton of advanced security features to rein them in. See for yourself here at King Auto Center in Lihue.

2019 RAM 1500 Powertrains

Choose between a 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and a 395-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8. The former puts out 269 pound-feet of torque, while the latter upgrades that rating to 410 pound-feet. Both pair with a TorqueFlite auto transmission. The result is, on the one hand, high efficiency.

For one, RAM 1500 can achieve fuel economy up to 19 mpg combined in 4x4 with a V8, which is a best-in-class rating. Secondly, thanks to an optional eTorque mild hybrid system, you can enjoy improved engine performance mileage, towing, hauling, and overall driving feel. That's because the system's an alternator alternative, using a 48-volt, battery-powered motor driven by a belt.

On the other hand, it's supremely powerful. RAM 1500 can haul max payloads up to 2,300 pounds in bed sizes ranging from 53.9 cubic feet to 61.5. That's enough for a pallet of construction materials, outboard equipment, tool chests, and more. It can also tow up to 12,750 pounds max, which means anything from ATVs and jet skis to a small camper or even another vehicle.

2019 RAM 1500 Safety Features

If any light-duty, full-size truck speaks to keeping your drive secure, it's RAM 1500. More than 100 passive safety and active driver-assistance features are either standard or available. They range widely, from adaptive cruise control with stop and go and a Lane Departure Warning-Plus system to parallel and perpendicular park assistance and a 360-degree surround view camera. 14.9-inch brakes, the biggest in the class, deliver dependable stopping power, and should the worst happen, an advanced six-airbag network wraps you in redundant layers of protection.
