6 Things We Like About the 2019 Ram 1500's Interior

By Robby DeGraff

Can a pickup truck be perfect? I spent a week in a top-of-the-line redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 Limited, and I'm almost convinced perfect is possible. It's not just the powertrain setup that smoothly delivers the 5.7-liter V-8's grunt when you need it, its classy lockable RamBox or stunning interior. It's the sum of all those things that help the Ram 1500 reach near perfection.

By now you've heard about the level of luxury the new Ram 1500 offers. For the most part, the top trim levels of pickup trucks exude top-drawer craftsmanship, luxury and comfort. Once again, Ram's 2019 1500 Limited hits that bar and raises it. My crew-cab 4x4 with a base price of $57,890 including destination fee commanded $68,785 with all its add-ons. A big number, yes, but many of the nearly $11,000 in options, especially on the inside, are worth the price of admission.

Here, then, are my top six favorite interior features of the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited.

1. Materials, Fit and Finish

Fitfinish1 copy II

The materials, quality and construction of the Ram 1500 Limited crew cab are nicer than the apartment I currently rent. A big brute of a pickup truck with a lavish cabin is a welcome retreat, and I'd even go as far to put it on-par with the interiors found Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar or Audi vehicles. Everywhere you look, a mix of warm materials embraces you as you drive in comfort thanks to the standard four-corner air suspension. Pinstripe-like stitching accents the heated leather-and-woodgrain steering wheel, the table-sized center armrest, the door panels and even the leather grab handles. The dashboard boasts panels of darkened wood, dull brushed and shiny soft metal strips, soft swaths of stitched leather and Piano Black accents. Even the volume knob has an upscale, weighted feel to it and the robust door handles could stand up to a hefty barn door. Once the sun goes down, tiny LEDs light the door panels, creating an illusion of being in a cocktail bar or jazz club.

2. Harman Kardon Sound System

The Limited comes standard with a nine-speaker stereo system complete with a subwoofer. But trust me, you'll want to upgrade to the 19-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Sound System; it's worth every cent of the $2,695 Level 1 Equipment Group that includes it. Fine-tuning it via the giant user-friendly Uconnect touchscreen allows for an impressive on-the-road soundtrack. I also liked the ornate, etched-metal speakers with their extra dash of elegance. The equipment group also includes several safety features: adaptive cruise control with stop and go, surround-view cameras, full-speed collision warning, brake assist and parking assist.

3. 12-inch Uconnect Display

Uconnect1 copy II

As automakers move toward implementing iPad-like entertainment displays, Ram does an excellent job of blending Fiat Chrysler Automobile's 12-inch Uconnect multimedia system into the center dashboard. It's a bit excessive, but this standard-on-the-Limited screen is pretty cool. FCA's Uconnect touchscreen system continues to earn praise for its easy-to-use, responsive interface. I appreciate that audio and climate can still be adjusted via traditional, physical buttons and knobs that cleanly dot the perimeter of the screen. The 12-inch Uconnect display provides a clear picture for the surround-view cameras to deliver a sizable 360-degree view from above. That certainly helped pilot the hefty pickup in tight parking lots.

4. Panoramic Sunroof

Sunroof2 copy II

While Wisconsin's winter temperatures off Lake Michigan weren't ideal for full open-roof driving, the massive panorama sunroof ($1,295) makes it feel like you're outside and makes the interior feel more spacious even when it's closed. Opening the wide glass roof above the front two seats is about as close to a proper convertible driving experience you'll get in a vehicle that can tow more than 10,000 pounds. The maximum towing capacity — if that's what's most important to you — is 12,750 pounds for a quad cab 4x2 equipped with the 6-foot, 4-inch bed, 3.92:1 gears and the eTorque Hemi V-8.

5. Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist With Stop

Parkassist1 copy II

When they were first offered, semi-autonomous parking systems that help you parallel (or perpendicular) park were pricey options found on premium luxury cars. But as the technology has become more affordable, it's made its way to pickup trucks, mid-size sedans and crossovers. While it may seem gimmicky to some, I found the system in the Ram 1500 Limited to be incredibly helpful when operating the truck in urban areas with street parking. The system is part of the aforementioned $2,695 Level 1 Equipment Group. To engage the system, simply tap the button at the top of the Uconnect screen, slowly drive past a row of parked cars and let the Ram's surround-view cameras and sensors measure the distance between cars. Once it has all the required data points, an alert chimes indicating the spot is large enough. After that it's just a matter of following instructions on the Uconnect screen, shifting into Reverse, slowly lifting your foot off the brake pedal and letting the Ram's steering wheel spin itself as the truck is backed precisely into a spot. You're then instructed to shift to Drive, let the wheel spin itself around some more, allowing the truck to creep forward and park. Parallel parking a large truck can be a daunting task for some, especially on a curved street. During the week I used this system, it never once failed, making me truly appreciative.

6. Storage, Storage and More Storage

Storage2 copy II

There's quite a network of storage caves inside the Ram 1500 Limited; each day I drove it I discovered a new cubby, well or slot. Relocating the gear shifter left of the center control panel and switching to a rotary dial frees up tremendous amounts of space. The center dashboard now provides a sliding upper lid for a compartment that has spots for sunglasses, pens or a wallet. Lifting the clamshell lid of the center console reveals a box big enough for a laptop, hat and gloves, clipboard and other larger items. A small, brushed-metal button in front of the passenger seat opens a small glove box stamped with "Limited" script. Along with generous-sized openings in the door panels there are two small hidden, fairly deep storage wells under the rear floormats for stowing tools or a pair of jumper cables. Lift the rear split bench and there's a surprising amount of room below the seat bottoms for backpacks, camera bags or a small duffle bag. If you're transporting large items, folding the rear bench against the back cabin wall allows the foldable cargo divider underneath to flip out and down, creating even more flat cargo space.

The interior of the Ram is better than many competitors luxury cars! No doubt, this is the segment benchmark. I don't like this particular color scheme though...but to each their own.

Do they have an all black interior option for the Limited? That would be awesome!

This Ram has the interior that is luxury level. Ram has really raised the bar on their interiors and exteriors. Chevy pay attention don't copy the F-150s front if you are going to copy any competitors exterior and interior this is the truck to copy. I never have cared that much about the F-150's current design especially the bar under the headlights and now the Silverado has them. Ram just improve your reliability and then you will be a real threat to Chevy and Ford--you are close to being there.

This truck exemplifies how badly GM missed the mark with their P.O.S. brand new designs.

GM sucks.

FCA must be focusing on interiors on all there vehicles, well at least Jeep and Ram as they are always getting high marks from reviewers. Our Grand Cherokee Overland High Altitude interior is gorgeous

Even the previous model Ram had a better feel with its interior. I should be in the States again soon and I'll try and rent a new Ram.....again.

I had one of those Frod "aluminium vunder trux" and the interior was like some Chinese produced Rubber Maid trash can or a Coleman cooler. The fOrd F150 was a let down, even the Coyote V8.

Maybe the Ranger will give Fird a decent pickup, its a pity the global version didn't make it to the US.

FCA have done well with the Ram, I hope there is a Ram midsizer soon as well. With the Gladiator, FCA can soon sell more Chev's Sliverudo and Colorido.

To Mark Williams point above, my ranking of the features are as follows:

1. Materials, fit & finish (can't imagine a better selection of materials, amongst the very best in the industry).
2. Harmon Kardon sound system (had one in my old german sports sedan and I loved it).
3. Parallel and perpendicular park assist (if it works well, I'm all for it).
4. Storage and more storage (hard to complain about gobs of storage).

I really don't want the other features, the 12" touchscreen (I generally prefer buttons/knobs for all primary functions), and I don't want a panoramic sunroof (not confident of the durability). Another thing I really don't like is the transmission shifter dial...much prefer old school column shifter, or maybe the console shifter, even though it takes up valuable real estate.

Jeffs,
I agree with you regarding the style of the F150 and Sliverado. When I buy a vehicle I place a huge emphasis on interior quality and design. This what we live with driving.

The Ram is also very well designed on the outside.

What would be funny is Sergio focused on SUVs/CUVs and light trucks (utes and vans) a couple of years ago and Frod and GM didn't. GM and Ford are struggling financially due to inept management, in the global arena leaving a better globally performing FCA eclipsing Fird & GM.

One more thought...GM should try and poach as many Ram/FCA interior designers as they can, clearly GM is not in the same league on interior design as Ram/FCA.

Real Man,
I liked the older black Ram interiors. It sharpened and made the previos gen Ram look better.

Agree about ram just needing to up their quality level. I made the mistake of buying the previous generation ram. It looked and felt so nice I just figured it had good quality under that nice package as well. It didn't. Problem after problem with that turd. No regrets with the aluminum f150 so far. Going on three years with the aluminum Ecoboost truck and 80,000 miles. The Chevys I have seen are just kind of boring and ugly to me, but I will probably give it a good look next time around. Hoping there is a new f150 and tundra by the time I'm shopping again.

@Wisconsonite

I too had significant problems with my one Dodge Ram, right off the bat, it had a leak that took them three flipping months to fix (that is how long it took to get the parts). Other than the truck being a piece of junk, it was otherwise reasonably nice, except for the terrible fuel economy compared to my previous Silverado pickup. I will probably never buy another FCA/Ram/Jeep vehicle again. These days, I only compare GM's and Fords....if Toyota ever builds an HD truck, I might look at them too.

I too had a Ram and buddy it was junk. Also had a Silverado before that Ram. Bought the Ram thinking it would be a better truck.That Chevy was junk for sure. New 5.3 after 26,000 miles after the other one blew up. Bought a Ram and man that thing stayed in the shop. Just little things like the entertainment system caught fire. I now have an F150 and after2yrs its been flawless. V8 of course. Never been happier with a truck until now.

Fiat -39%; Chrysler -14%; Jeep -2%; Dodge -2%; Alfa -30% AND RAM UP ALMOST 25%.

The big fool from Down Under cannot help himself. His anti-American and anti-T-r-u-m-p message blinds him to the facts. RAM was the only part of Fiat Chrysler to perform during the last month (see above). And RAM is all about US sales.

Bozo the clown says that FCA has a proper focus outside the US but a look at reality shows clearly that the US is the only thing that is GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION at FCA right now. Ditto Ford and GM, by the way.

There's a reason for that---the rest of the world's economies are in the crapper right now. Without the power of the US economy pulling the damn train, the world would be in a massive recession. Make Who Great Again? America!

Critics of the T-r-u-m-p tariffs were all predicting that the US trade dispute with China would increase the prices of materials used in manufacturing.

Instead, raw materials in January saw the first monthly drop in materials prices in three years.

Pay careful attention to the folks who attack the White House. They have an agenda, and their agenda is NOT good for you or your family. It's only about them, and they're the very same people who used to tell us that the country's best days were over.

Keep America Great in 2020!

@Papajim
" There's a reason for that---the rest of the world's economies are in the crapper right now. Without the power of the US economy pulling the damn train, the world would be in a massive recession. Make Who Great Again? America!"

Fascinating but erroneous twist on world economics. I can see the struggle with China, is a necessary confrontation. Why previous US administrations allowed a dangerous Communist State to thrive at the cost of US companies is beyond me, only thought greed rather than the national good. came first
Now the current Admin is trying to reel it back, but their are casualties and US Automotive companies will be part of those victims

@Mark Williams
I wish more US Pickups were as balanced in their design. This Pickups gets away from the excessively garish styling of others

Save it, Robert. You're wasting your breath. The US auto companies you make reference to are each recovering from a colossal whipping they took in the market 10 years ago. They nearly went out of business. Today Ford, GM and RAM are doing well in the US. Take a look at their sales figures. Their competitors in Asia are the ones you should be concerned for.

@Dave; speaking from experience with wife's GC & recently a buddy with a '17 SRT GC, companies fleet of Chrysler 300's &
numerous friends with RAMs, Dakotas, GC all years;

They are all beautiful & sweet when new but trouble usually starts around 15 000 miles or within 2-3 yrs;
Issues can range from undetected transmission oil leaks if not detected will lead to full transmission replacements, numerous electrical gremlins, numerous warped brake pads, electrical motors for windows burning out or as simple as tail gate or engine hood struts failing & turn light bulbs burning out way too soon.
In fact I've come to a conclusion it's almost scary to invest in any of their products. It's too bad, as much as I love FCA's RAM truck designs & interiors, this will always defer my decision to invest in any of their products for personal use.
As I've always said on this sight; I believe FCA has some of the best looking SUV's/truck designs & interiors, better than Ford or Cheby put together. But can you imagine if they ever got their $hit together one day...they can have the potential to take No.1 spot even from Ford!

I have owned my 2019 Ram Limited for 4 months now. I have had multiple issues to date. First was my 12" Uconnect screen going completely blank, finally was replaced. Panoramic sunroof leaked, causing stain in headliner, dealer replaced headliner and sunroof assembly. Then I have a steering issue when turning left the steering seems to stay turning and will not self return, requires you to jerk steering wheel to the right to get it to return, very uncomfortable feeling, still no fix for this yet. The other thing I don't like , I barely get 14 mpg and I have the Hemi with e-torque.
Sure the interior is "fancy" , but reliability issues are already showing up, and interior rattles have began, cheap plastic fasteners to blame.

@papajim
" Take a look at their sales figures. Their competitors in Asia are the ones you should be concerned for."

They are booming in Asia., seemingly a never ending supply of new models., Isuzu and Mazda have just previewed their New Pickups US looks like a downturn in 2019 in sales

I disagree; I'm one of the few on this site with family in NZ (brother has several Toyota dealers) & a sister who lives in Syd, Darling Point. So I understand the Aussie stance you are peddling but whenever I'm in the US, I make sure I can rent the biggest, baddest V8, whatever I can get my hands on & choices usually range from FCA sports cars (Charger/Challenger to RAM's plus latest trucks from all brands (except Toy makers, no one seems to offer Tundra's for rent...I wonder why?). A tradition when I leave the rental outfit, floor that mother$ucker just to feel that feeling of "welcome to good 'ol USA!!" The power & glory & comfy ride is what American's like & understand totally why the US auto industry conform to what their customers want; plush riding vehicles with tons of power - even if they don't make the best numbers compared to European counterparts or similar, I understand also why critics are scratching their heads how the ancient platforms of Challenger & variants do so well in sales when all they are really good for is in a straight line. Well I get it & you probably don't.

No worries...Isuzu & their different variants (Colorado etc) were always failures & that's a fact - the old 2011 global Ranger platform has out performed them in sales plus all recent side-by-side comparison tests by Aussie/NZ/Euro & South Africa auto critics including Mazda's ugly variant BT50. Ford will certainly put all their resources into the next Ranger generation due 2021-22 with some input from VW. As you know, almost all current & similar truck comparisons always had Ranger & Amarok neck to neck (surprisingly Toy makers latest Hilux version was always close to last)...wow can't wait what these two giant auto maker's will come up with :-)

@Lionel
Still the Hilux pulls ahead of the Ranger. VW is going to rub its hands with glee, pairing with the Ranger will give it a cheaper platform, that will give the well regarded v6 Amarok( which you have noted) more clout
I see a win for VW in its fight to get the Amarok more mainstream

I barely get 14 mpg and I have the Hemi with e-torque.

Sorry Chargerfan, but it's just the way you drive. As they say, your mileage may vary.

Sergio did a lot for FCA in focusing on Jeep and Ram. I do fault him with building Alfa Romeo. I understand that Alfa is more of a Global brand but it is way down on the list of desirable brands. Reliability has always been an issue for Chrysler products. FCA needs to focus on quality and service at the dealer level. I have owned a Chrysler product in the past and really liked it but the body, body hardware, and electronics were always problematic. Because of those things I would not buy an FCA product. GM does have a solid drive train and they use to have some of the best designs but in recent years their designs have been ugly and interiors have been severely cheapened. As for Fords the 2000 Taurus that my wife had was a good car and the interior was of good quality but they too have gone to cheap interiors. I understand on base models the need to make them cheaper but on the premium models the interior needs to be much better.

My nephew had some issues recently with his 2014 Ram 3500 with the Cumings. The injectors had to be replaced and he had problems with the fuel leaking. He finally fixed them but he had a friend with a newer Ram that had much bigger issues to where the truck stopped running. He has had a couple of Rams and likes them but he will admit that they do have issues. Another nephew has a Tundra and it has been flawless. My other nephew has an F-150 and another an F-250 and 2 of my nephews went in on a 2006 F-250 gas for a farm truck and they have not had any issues. i am the only one in my family with a GM product and I have had no serious issues with them. I realize that my family is just a small sample compared to the population as a whole but that has been their experiences and they are very loyal to their truck brands. I am not as loyal and I am open to other brands but a vehicle has to be reliable. My wife's CRV has been very reliable.

Do not ever complain about the price of trucks praising this stuff, ever!

When did trucks become so feminism inspired?

Liberals...


Capitalism: YES


Liberal Socialism: NO

@oxi--A truck is no longer just a utilitarian vehicle. Many are used as family haulers and many women are driving and buying trucks. If you took away the crew cabs and the premium packages there would not be the growth in the truck market that we have now. Even the Tacoma sells more well optioned crew cabs. I see more of the loaded Tacoma crew cabs on the road than the more base models. If anything those buying these trucks prove that Capitalism is alive and well.

@Lionel--I have to say that if I were buying a muscle car that the Challenger would be my first choice regardless of FCA's reliability. The new Camaro does nothing for me and the Mustang is just ok. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The Challenger is good as it is.

@Oxi

I wonder what you mean by trucks becoming feminine? If you are referring to, for example, the Ram interior and all of the bells and whistles as well as high-end materials, I have a few thoughts. I have taken a little flack for criticizing GM for their low-grade interior in the 2019 trucks, because they are supposed to be a 'truck'. For me, I don't just take my truck to home depot, pick up groceries or drive back and forth to work...in fact, I seldom do any of this with my truck. Additionally, I don't work out in the oil fields or in construction. I do use my truck regularly to pull our trailer that weighs up to 8,000 pounds...this kind of work can't be done by most any other vehicle type. If I am going to spend up to $80k for a truck, I don't want the interior to look like a 1998 chevrolet cavalier. When I am driving thousands of miles per year pulling our trailer, I would prefer to be in a luxurious and comfortable environment. At the same time, the first thing I look at in a truck is to make sure it can do all of the 'truck' stuff well...high enough payload and tow capacity, good power, decent fuel economy etc. In these respects, basically all of the trucks available are more capable than they have ever been...and to me that means they are real 'trucks'.

I like my Ram's interior even the big horn is pretty nice. I would like to see more legroom in the front. They always talk about how much rear leg room they have but I am very tall and I could use just a little more leg room up front. Ram as 41" of legroom where GM has 45".

The Rams interior is stellar, but what happens when that so called fantastic 12 inch screen goes chaotic and is out of warranty?
What about the fit and finish of the truck itself. The interior can be fantastic but if there are gaps in it and pieces coming from factory not looking right? These are the top issues with this truck. Many complaints.
And lastly, the reliability of the vehicle itself. I mean "Chargerfan" pointed it out perfectly. Ram might have made a fantastic truck, but if the details are rushed its not going to fix anything.
Plus, they are dropping anywhere from $10 to $13k on the hoods of these trucks to get rid of them. They have had $10k on hoods since they debuted, that's not good!

People can "dis" or "slam" GM's interiors, but they are not really that bad when you sit in them. Could they have done more....sure, but I'll take simplicity and functionality over anything else.

BTW...that last comment was the Real TNTGMC.....my laptop logged me off from last night.

Not to worry. There's no mistaking you for the idiot that uses your name.

Just a guess but 90-95% of the people who buys trucks is for status symbol. I can't even afford a new truck anymore because of the direction it is going. The landcruiser days are over, only the wealthy drives new landcruisers. The same will be true for trucks too.

@TNT

We both agree that while Ram did a great job on the aesthetics of their new interior, that the Ram's reliability has been sub-par, and that 12" screen while looking good, will cost a fortune to replace. Given those points, I will never consider a Ram. At this point for my tastes, the GMC HD Denali is the best looking truck on the exterior. While I would call the interior so-so (you are right, I haven't sat in it), it does offer an exciting powertrain with the Duramax, and the new 'Allison' 10 speed transmission. Sounds like Allison was part of the team all-along (they co-developed), and they didn't just sell GM the right to use their name. We don't know what Ford has in store for 2020, but GM's powertrain combo should be top-notch...and I would rather have the 'Allison' 10 speed than the current Ford 6 speed or their upcoming HD 10 speed.

Totally agree about the ram quality. If chargerfan isn't making it up that's a bad sign. I loved my 09 ram for quite a while when I bought it even bragged it up here quite a bit. But at 50,000 miles the problems started and then they just kept coming..... repeatedly. Funny thing is Caseih has similar problems to ram. I think they are related companies? Prone to lots of little gremlins and cheaply made parts makes a seemingly great design a headache in the end.

Haven't seen the new Chevy interior yet. Hard to tell much from the pictures. My guess is the Chevy interior is nicer than people are saying. If I we're buying today I would easily choose the Chevy over the "nicer" and better looking ram. But right now my loyalty is to Ford first. They hit a home run with their last two truck designs I'm and in my experience they seem to have top notch quality all around. It would be hard for me to go elsewhere when I've enjoyed the Fords so much.

A truck like the limited will never see a load of gravel. A truck like this will never see a load of manure for the garden. A truck like this will never be used to haul a load of firewood out of the woods. This truck will never see muddy boots in the passenger compartment.
None of the work activities will be done not until the third owner when the depreciated value is significantly less than its initial $68K. By then the 12 inch screen will have failed due to heat and humidity. The seats will have rips and tears and the burnished trim is scuffed and scratched. Only then will this truck show it's true value as a survivor.

@Lionel--I have to say that if I were buying a muscle car that the Challenger would be my first choice regardless of FCA's reliability. The new Camaro does nothing for me and the Mustang is just ok. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The Challenger is good as it is.

I'm with you there; I'm definitely looking at a red eye version right now. Without going into too much details (as this is a truck site :-) - I've rented Challengers many times with family of 3, luggage & all & managed in comfort & style everyone loved it...now that coming from my wife is a real plus.

@Lionel - "Ford will certainly put all their resources into the next Ranger generation due 2021-22 with some input from VW..."

Lionel is right we already had our first design meeting with VW....

It's pretty clear Ram's beating Silverado sales for the entire 2nd half of last year is just the beginning. Chevy should be sweating big time! (#3, here Chevy comes!) This is the year of the Ram!
