Americans are buying record numbers of full-size pickup trucks, and automakers continue to improve the products. Newly redesigned this year, the 2019 RAM 1500 is the brand’s most powerful, most technologically advanced and most capable half-ton pickup ever. It’s so good a jury of automotive journalists recently named it the 2019 Truck of the Year.
The fifth generation of the RAM pickup is offered in a long list of models, but one our favorite versions of the truck is the off-road capable Ram Rebel. Not only does it have one of the coolest names in the business, but it’s also available with Hemi V8 power. And with a base price of $46,635, including a $1,695 destination fee, it doesn’t cost a fortune. The 2019 Ram Rebel competes with the Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss, GMC Sierra AT4, Nissan Titan FX4, Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, and Ford F-150 Raptor.
