2019 RamTech: enjoy the quiet

by Michael Volkmann on

We are around six months away from the debut of the next Ram 1500 pickup truck, coded “DT.”  Allpar sources told us that many new features and items are being added to the Ram, to keep it at the front of the class.

Today, in our second installment, we can list a few more hot-ticket items.

The next Ram is expected to have a major update to the Uconnect system that should please musically-inclined truck buyers, with the SRT High Performance Audio package — using 19 speaker drivers — though that doesn’t mean you’ll see a Ram SRT (and the name is likely to change).

Coming from its successful debut in the Chrysler Pacifica is an active noise control system, joining acoustic front-door glass to make the interior quieter, so you can enjoy nine amplified speakers (including a subwoofer). Reports claim that the remote CD player will still be available.

In the increasingly luxurious high-end pickup market, these features should help to set Ram apart — or at least keep it in the game.
