WardsAuto has named the all-new, re-designed 2019 Ram 1500 to the third annual Wards 10 Best User Experience List for 2018 as 1500 continues to lead the way in technology, efficiency, durability and luxury with features never before offered in a pickup truck.

A pickup truck can be measured by it's ability to haul goods, tow heavy loads and get the work crew to the worksite on time. The 2019 Ram 1500 adds a great deal more to the equation: Comfort, technology, and luxury appointments never before available in a truck. So, if you plan to get a new truck to haul heavy equipment around the roads of Terryville, Smithtown, or Patchogue, consider how much more comfortable the ride can be, in a re-designed, technologically state-of-the-art 2019 Ram 1500.
 
“The Ram 1500 earned Wards 10 Best Interiors honors earlier this year and now lands a Wards 10 Best UX trophy because its user experience is unparalleled among full-size pickup trucks,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto managing editor. “A truck this size needs a big command center and Ram delivers with a 12-in. vertical touchscreen that seamlessly controls phone pairing, audio, climate adjustments and upgraded navigation.”

To select the best of the best, WardsAuto editors evaluated the overall user experience of 25 vehicles, rating them on their user friendliness, infotainment features, sound systems, vehicle connectivity, driver assistance technology, information/displays, system compatibility, voice control, materials and overall value.

“The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 was designed to be the most technologically advanced pickup ever and we are honored that WardsAuto has chosen the Ram 1500 for Ward's 10 Best User Experience list,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – North America. “We are dedicated to keeping Ram truck customers connected, engaged and informed all while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”

The 2019 Ram 1500 features the first application of a bonded flush 12-inch reconfigurable touchscreen with tailor-made graphics for various Ram models and state-of-the-art connectivity. Personalization is made easy with the new split-screen, operating two different applications for desired configuration, such as Apple CarPlay and HVAC controls, or one application, such as navigation across the entire 12-inch touchscreen. Available for the first time on the all-new Ram 1500 is a 360-degree Surround View Camera system providing a birds-eye view via four cameras positioned around the vehicle to create a fully stitched image. Customers who prefer not to use the touchscreen for HVAC will find redundant controls located on both sides of the display for convenience.  

Uconnect systems with the class-exclusive 12-inch display also feature the next level of audio entertainment with the first-time debut of the all-new SiriusXM with 360L, delivering a personalized listening experience with more variety, smart content recommendations and thousands of hours of on-demand audio content.

The all-new Ram truck offers a one-year SiriusXM All Access audio subscription, a one-year SiriusXM Guardian Connected Services subscription; 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability with a 1 Gigabyte/three-month subscription and SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic Plus that includes a five-year subscription.
