Canada gets its own 2019 Ram 1500 Sport trim

Canada gets its own 2019 Ram 1500 Sport trim

We are used to seeing Texas get its own Ram trim in the Lone Star but Canadians never seem to have made a fuss about it. Someone somewhere must have done though as we are getting our very own trim. I must say, I like it. It has a certain look that takes the already neat shape of the new look Ram 1500 and adds a touch of class to the look.

The Canadian-specific trim was unveiled at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto but I completely missed it. It was only when I was discussing the new truck with someone around the office that they mentioned the special trim just for us.

Apparently Ram chose the Sport trim because it was by far the best-selling trim in Canada. The Sport not only looks great but uses the Hemi V8, which goes a long way to telling us just why this truck is so popular up here.

2019 Ram 1500 Sport Canada style
The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport dials back the chrome and tidies the entire exterior up. I don’t like chrome on any car made after the 1970s, so this special edition is right up my street. Body panels, detailing and trim elements have all been made body colour or black and looks very cool indeed.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport will be available in nine colours. Lettering, badging, light backgrounds and some traditionally chrome fixtures are all black, the interior is black with body coloured piping and the entire look is very nice. The interior also has black trim and keeps the brightwork to the absolute minimum. Again, the truck looks all the better for it.

While minor in comparison to the entire design, this special edition elevates the truck hugely. We also get new 22 inch wheels too!

The 2019 Ram 1500 Sport comes with the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 that delivers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The Hemi comes with cylinder deactivation technology which helps reduce gas emissions when you don’t need all eight cylinders. The truck uses an eight speed automatic transmission to send power to the rear wheels. AWD is an option though.

Ram trucks are popular for a reason. Not only do they look great, they have well-constructed, fully featured cabins, they offer lots of safety features, technology and lots and lots of options. With a series of great engines, a reliable transmission, strong, stiff chassis and the ability to haul and tow big loads, it is definitely a light truck for all reasons and all seasons.

We don’t yet have a release date for the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport or pricing but we know it is coming. Keep an eye on Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8 for updates.
