The all-new 2019 Ram 1500, a no-compromise luxury truck that sets the standard for interior comfort and refinement has been named one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors for 2018. The WardsAuto editorial staff selected the 10 winners after evaluating 40 vehicles - all contenders for the annual award were completely new or significantly upgraded for the 2018 or 2019 model years. 
“Starting with the eye-catching 12-inch touchscreen that dominates the instrument panel, the 2019 Ram 1500 shows the world what is possible inside a full-size pickup truck,” said Drew Winter, Senior Content Director, WardsAuto/Informa. “In addition to the ultra-sophisticated electronics, the materials and design details in the Limited and Laramie Longhorn editions would be at home in a luxury car costing six figures. And, on top of that are dozens of surprise and delight features that turn the Ram 1500 into a lifestyle vehicle for many different - and fun - lifestyles.”
For 2019, the Ram design and engineering teams have added unique technology, materials and storage solutions to give customers a premium experience while staying true to the hard-working nature of the Ram 1500.
All-new features, technology and premium materials help the completely redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 become the class leader in quality, comfort and durability. Each trim level is uniquely characterized including special fonts that reflect their individual charm.
The new instrument panel combines a strong structurally interlocking appearance covered in softer forms, pushing up and toward the cabin. As a centre piece, the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 features the first application of Uconnect™ 4C NAV on a 12-inch (304.8 mm) fully configurable touchscreen, tailor-made for various Ram models. The touchscreen can house one application, such as the navigation map, across the whole screen, or can be divided in half, operating two different applications at once. An all-new toggle switch bank lies below the touchscreen giving physical control of specific features.
An active noise cancellation system and acoustic glass reduce ambient sounds down to a low 67.1 db, making this the quietest Ram 1500 ever.
The centre stack has been raised and brought closer to the driver to accommodate the monster Uconnect™ touchscreen and to improve overall reachability of system controls. The driver also benefits with nearly an inch of additional travel in seat height and a new telescoping steering wheel to achieve the ideal driving position.
The new HVAC system features nearly 25 percent more air flow at lower noise levels, including larger front defroster vents for better performance. Rear passengers will enjoy 50 percent more airflow when compared to the previous generation.
At 151 litres of interior storage volume, the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 includes nearly 100 percent more storage capacity versus the closest competitor. Up from 23 to 39 litres, the reimagined centre console is a useable, complex piece of art with more than 12 different storage combinations. Centre stage, a wider docking area with optional wireless charging can hold a small tablet or smartphone. A three-position sliding cup holder tray can be stowed under the centre armrest to reveal a deep storage tub designed to hold a 15-inch (381 mm) laptop. At the rear of the console, there are two additional cup holders, which also include a tablet holder for rear passengers.
To keep devices charged, there are five USB ports in the centre console - three up front and two in back. Three of the USB ports, including one in the rear seating area, are fully functioning and communicate with the Uconnect™ interface. Two three-pronged 115-volt plugs can be found in the first and second rows (one in the centre stack and one at the rear of the centre console). An additional 115-volt plug can be found in the RamBox, when equipped, tripling the number of outlets on the previous model, and now handling up to 400 watts.
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500’s cab length has increased a total of four inches (101.6 mm) inside. B- and C-pillars moved an inch (25.4 mm) rearward, and the rear of the cab is pushed an additional two inches (50.8mm). Thus, front and rear doors are now one inch (25.4 mm) larger on Crew Cab configurations, while the rear door is one inch (25.4 mm) shorter on Quad Cab models compared to the previous model. Along with the largest cab in the segment, the second-row features eight degrees of slide-recline with best-in-class leg room of 45.1 inches (1,145.54 mm) for passenger comfort and an exclusive Smart Fold centre armrest that creates a captain’s chair experience. The four-way adjustable rear headrests include a power release-and-drop feature, giving the driver greater visibility when the second row is empty.
Bookending the flat-load floor are two Ram Bins. Now 5.5 inches (139.7 mm) longer than the previous model, these covered in-floor storage bins can hold larger items, including up to a four-inch (101.6 mm) drop hitch - keeping cargo out of sight and the interior clean. On top of each Ram Bin are two tie downs to keep cargo secure.
The all-new Ram 1500 key fobs have also received a new design treatment and are slightly larger to accommodate new functions including the power-release tailgate. The fob also features branding for higher trim levels and a battery life improvement of up to six years.
Surrounding the largest cab in the segment, the interior design team brought unique colours and premium materials to each trim level of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500. Modular design allows for more personification and customization. Each model makes its own unique “Hero” statement with paint colours, badging, wheels, grilles and other features.
