A Showdown Between 2 Industry Favorites
If you’re hard at work researching hard-working pickup trucks, then you’ve likely already trimmed your list down to the 2019 RAM 1500 and 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500. Both trucks are icons in the industry. However, only one can reign supreme, and we believe the RAM 1500 comes out on top.
The new RAM 1500 checks all the boxes for everything drivers want in a rugged pickup — affordability, efficiency, capability, technology and safety. Plus, the RAM 1500 lineup has the perfect blend of configurations to choose from. There are a number of trim levels that include models that are ideal for the construction site, such as the Tradesman, and more luxurious models like the Laramie Longhorn®.
The Ram 1500 comes in the following trim levels:
- Ram 1500 Limited
- Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Addition
- Ram 1500 Rebel
- Ram 1500 Laramie
- Ram 1500 Bighorn
- Ram 1500 Tradesman
The RAM 1500 Delivers Heavy-Duty Capability
Those who don’t settle for anything less than the highest level of capability should upgrade into the RAM 1500. It offers 3 powertrain options — a 3.6L eTorque V6, a 5.7L HEMI® V8 and a 5.7L HEMI® eTorque V8. The standard 3.6L V6 dishes out a hearty 305 horsepower — matching the horsepower of the 2019 Silverado’s standard engine — while achieving an EPA-estimated 20/25 city/highway MPG. The standard Silverado, on the other hand, only musters a lackluster EPA-estimated 16/21 city/highway MPG.
The RAM 1500 is also built to handle heavy-duty jobs. Its 2 HEMI V8 engines, which are optional on all trim levels, pack a powerful punch. The regular 5.7L HEMI V8 kicks out 395 horsepower and tows up to 11,610 pounds. Meanwhile, the eTorque variant features a best-in-class V8 towing capacity of 12,750 pounds while achieving an impressive 17/23 city/highway MPG, according to the EPA.
Meanwhile, the Silverado 1500’s 5.3L V8 only delivers 355 horsepower, and it’s more-powerful 6.2L V8 engine is only available on its pricey top-tier trim levels.
With this level of performance, the RAM 1500 is the perfect vehicle for your business work truck or your weekend adventures.
A Premium Cabin
RAM claims that the RAM 1500 is the most luxurious truck in its class and for good reason. It is outfitted with soft-touch, yet durable materials. Its state-of-the-art cabin keeps you connected to your social world through its Uconnect® infotainment system, which is much easier to use than the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system.
Another advantage the new RAM 1500 has over its rival is the size of its touchscreen display. While the Silverado’s biggest touchscreen is only 8 inches, the RAM 1500 has an available 12-inch touchscreen, which is the largest in its class.
The RAM 1500’s best-in-class features don’t end there. You’ll also find the most speakers in the class with its available 19-speaker harman/kardon® premium sound system, and it has the most interior storage volume thanks to its class-exclusive in-floor storage system.
Serious About Safety
If you’re dealing with big hauls, you’ll need big-time safety features to protect you and your cargo, and the new RAM 1500 does it better than the Chevy Silverado. The RAM 1500 offers over 100 standard and available safety and security features to help provide more peace of mind.
One of the features truck drivers will appreciate the most is Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection. This system detects danger in the areas you may not be able to see.
Other available driver-assist technologies include:
- Lane Departure Warning — Plus
- Guided Parking
- Smart Cruising
- 360-Degree Surround View Camera
In addition to the futuristic technology, the new RAM 1500 also has the largest brakes in its class, which helps it come to a stop faster than the Chevy Silverado.
