Ram Introduces 2019 Chassis Cab Work Trucks (2/11/2019)
Story by RVBusiness
The new 2019 Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab will usher in a new generation of work trucks — one that leads the segment in capability, but also never-before-offered comfort and technology, according to a company release.
Ram Chassis Cab trucks are “the most durable, most capable and most confident cab and chassis trucks Ram has ever engineered,” the release continued. With a segment-leading towing capacity up to 35,220 pounds, the highest Gross Combined Weight Rating of 43,000 pounds and payload up to 12,510 pounds, Ram’s heaviest haulers are built for unforgiving duty cycles while achieving new levels of efficiency and upfitter friendliness.
While keeping true to the work truck mission, Ram Chassis Cab designers worked closely with engineering to give Ram’s line of halo-capability trucks an optional level of comfort with the new Limited model for those customers who have an enthusiast’s passion and want a fitting truck to handle the weight. The 2019 Ram Chassis Cab also offers the class-exclusive 12-inch reconfigurable touchscreen display with SiriusXM with 360L. Adding to its leadership in technology, the new Ram Chassis Cab is the only truck in the segment to offer adaptive cruise control, Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and AEB with trailer brakes on all trim levels.
“Ram Chassis Cab operators work their trucks at maximum capability in the harshest drive cycles every day. By offering 35,220 pounds of towing capacity, 12,510 pounds of payload and a Gross Combined Weight Rating of 43,000 pounds, our 2019 Ram Chassis Cabs take segment leadership in areas most important to customers and upfitters alike,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA. “With the Chassis Cab Limited, we’ve also created something the segment has never seen, surrounding owners in premium materials and technology with the highest quality interiors, active safety systems, and of course, our award-winning Uconnect technology.”
