Ram has released a new edition explicitly geared for those in the north battling extreme winters. The 2019 Ram 1500 North Edition is designed to fight the bitterest of winters. It doesn’t fear a drop in temperatures, nor will snow stop it.
2019 Ram 1500 North Edition
The Ram 1500 North Edition comes from the Big Horn trim but features it’s one list of upgrades. This helps it to reach into a mid-range luxury truck. It’s only available in four-wheel-drive and with a crew cab. You can choose from a long or short bed, plus there are a few engine options. You have a choice of the newest eTorque engines; either the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the 5.7-liter HEMI V8.
Because both of these engines are mild hybrid systems, you also regenerate power every time you brake. This saves you money at the gas pump. Don’t forget that the Ram won the 2019 Green Car of the Year Award.
Let’s talk about power. The V6 engine produces 305 horsepower while the V8 bumps that number to 395. Both of them come with an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
Standard Winterization Amenities
The Ram 1500 North Edition has three-peak mountain snowflake severe service-rated Falken LT tires. These provide superior performance on or off the road. To keep you from getting stuck in the snow, it also features a one-inch lift kit plus an electronically locking rear axle. If you still manage to get stuck, you could always utilize the pair of tow hooks this truck comes with.
In addition, you’ll have a remote start so you don’t have to venture out in the cold. The engine block heater always protects your engine when the temperatures are freezing. To keep you warm inside the cabin, turn on the heated seats or steering wheel. There’s even Mopar all-weather floor mats and heated side mirrors standard.
It’s not all about the cold weather though. There’s plenty of entertainment and safety features included as well. Use the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen combined with the SiriusXM Travel Link Weather to tell you when the next blizzard is approaching. The front and rear parking sensors also help you see what you can’t when trying to park in the snow.
Starting prices begin at $45,890 and a $1,695 destination charge. Many dealerships expect to see it before Christmas, so this would even make a good present.
