2019 Ram Heavy Duty

What’s changed for 2019?

In brief, Ram updated the frame to make it more rigid and lighter.

  • The cab and the bed remain the same, but the 2019 trucks get all new interiors that mimic the trim levels and design of the new 2019 Ram 1500 half-ton trucks.
  • The 5.7L HEMI V8 is no longer available for the HD trucks.
  • The 6.4L HEMI V8 has the same power rating, but it is now mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
  • The 6.7L Cummins I6 is redesigned to make the engine lighter and also produce more power. The maximum power output is now 400 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque.
  • There is no longer a manual transmission option.
  • Ram raised heavy duty truck maximum towing rating to 35,100 lbs, and maximum payload to 7,680 lbs.
  • (There are many other updates not listed here.)

The new High Output Cummins turbo-diesel and the updated 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission are priced at $11,795. The standard output diesel (370 hp and 850 lb-ft) prices at $9,100.

Here are the starting prices for the 2019 Ram 2500 HD trucks.
