The upcoming 2019 Ram 1500 is still waiting to hit the showrooms and Ram is already preparing new special editions. After Lone Star edition, the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport is coming soon on the markets. Sport edition is no strange to Ram as the company already had a couple of Sport trims for several years.
This truck is specified for Canada markets and features are very specific, however, if the sale goes well, this Sport edition could hit other markets around the world. The new model 2019 Ram 1500 Sport comes in Quad Cab and Crew Cab versions, the exterior adds a lot of monochromatic materials and the interior is comfortable and it features an optional all-black cabin. However, the cabin is equipped with latest technology and features, as every Sport edition. Performance is great thanks to a new and powerful engine.
2019 Ram 1500 Sport Exterior Features and Colors
As mentioned, the forthcoming 2019 Ram 1500 Sport comes in Quad and Crew cab versions. The exterior features a modern styling with the monochromatic theme and body-colored bumpers, grille surround and even mirror caps. The 21-inch are standard and 22-inch wheels are optional. The exterior offers nine colors. This includes Blue Streak Pearlcoat, Bright Silver Metallic Clearcoat, Bright White Clearcoat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat, Delmonico Red Pearlcoat, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Hydro Blue Pearlcoat, Maximum Steel Metallic and True Blue Pearlcoat.
The front grille features a large R-A-M lettering, just like the front doors. The Ram’s logo is placed on the tailgate and the Sport badge is mounted near the rear bumper.
The bi-LED headlights with blacked out bezels are standard. LED daytime running lights and LED fog lights looks distinctive and modern. If Sport edition is not enough sporty for you, Ram is offering an optional hood with heat extractors, the same hood that is included in Ram 1500 Rebel model. However, if one chooses the Big Horn Black model it will get black wheels, black paint, black badges, and black headlight bezels.
2019 Ram 1500 Sport Interior Design and Amenities
The interior also borrows some Rebel’s amenities like metal trims and chrome accents. The center stack is also taken from Rebel but the rest of the interior is unique. The cabin adds plenty of soft-touch materials, especially on the dashboard and gauge cluster that is accented with gray contrast stitching. The Sport badge sits in the glove box. The interior of the sports model will also be offered with two colors options Black and Black/Blue combined.
Premium vinyl seats with cloth materials are standard and include power-adjustable and three-way heating. Full leather seats with heat and ventilation are optional. The new dual sunroof is optional on Crew Cab models. All models will benefit from power-adjustable pedals, heated steering wheel, and large center console.
The infotainment system is Uconnect and it adds a 7.0-inch display. An 8.4-inch display is an option. Ucoonect system also adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone integration. The massive 12-inch screen isn’t available in this model, only in base one. This is quite a disappointment.
2019 Ram 1500 Sport Engine and Output
The Ram 1500 Sport comes with a 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The hybrid system is likely, but for now, those are just rumors. This V8 powertrain returns 395 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque and it is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
This engine is also on the offer with Dodge Challenger muscle car model. Four-wheel drive is on the cards, which is great, especially when tackling Canada’s highways covered in snow.
Fuel Economy and Acceleration
However, the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport scores in the city/highway fuel economy of 15/22 mpg for the two-wheel drive system and 8-speed automatic. However, for the model with the four-wheel-drive system and six-speed automatic gearbox gives 13/18 mpg and 15/21 mpg for the 4WD and 8-speed automatic.
With this all specs, the new 2019 Ram 1500 Sport will be able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 6.6 sec. The base one model that comes with a 3,6-liter V6 engine that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 7,5 sec.
2019 Ram 1500 Sport Cost, Arrival Date and Competitors
The price of 2019 Ram 1500 Sport will be in the range from $45,000 to 47,000. However, we expect Ram’s pickup truck to arrive in Canadian showrooms in the summer. The models like Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan will challenge the new 2019 Ram 1500 Sport.
