2019 Ram 1500 Limited and Rebel

Light-Duty Pickup Truck Matchup - 2019 Ram 1500 VS 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Though many automakers try to compete in the pickup truck division, there are a handful of brands that always take the lead, and two classic contenders are Ram and Chevrolet. Enhancing their latest models for the new year, the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are tougher than ever. Yet a comparison between the two shows the former outshines the latter in multiple arenas. That is why Sawyer Motors recommends the Ram truck to drivers around Saugerties, New York.

Five Ways the 2019 Ram 1500 Bests the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

A head-to-head review of the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 demonstrates five ways the Ram overtakes the Chevy. We delve into greater detail below. That way, shoppers will understand why we stand by the product built by our brand!


1. Towing - The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a lineup of five engines, and while its most advanced option delivers an impressive output of horsepower and torque, it falls short of what the 2019 Ram 1500 can do. Despite its tough powertrain, the Chevy truck peaks at 12,200 pounds for towing. Contrast this with a Ram truck equipped with a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine which can tow up to 12,750 pounds. Its higher ratings are currently considered the best in its class.


2. Cargo - While the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 allocates more space to its truck bed, only the 2019 Ram 1500 is offered with the exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System. This feature is a popular add-on for many Ram drivers because it makes it easier to keep tools organized and secured. Plus, there are LED lights inside the compartment and a newly included 115-volt power outlet so you can work on all of your projects at anytime and anywhere.

3. Efficiency - Both the 2019 Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 shed 225 and 450 pounds in weight, respectively. As a result, the two trucks are more efficient than their predecessors. While the numbers might suggest that the Chevrolet pickup is the likely leader in fuel economy, such is not the case. Most configurations put the Ram in the lead, with select models achieving an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon out on the highway. The competitor's best mark peaks at 23 highway miles per gallon.


4. Multimedia - The 2019 Ram 1500 will also appeal to drivers who prefer a more modern experience. This is because Ram trucks are now available with the next-gen Uconnect® 12.0 unit. Its 12-inch display is the largest to date and is incorporated with a navigational system and other user-friendly applications that enhance the ride. Meanwhile, the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 retains the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system whose smaller touchscreen can hardly compete.


5. Price - Finally, the 2019 Ram 1500 is more accessible than the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as well because its starting price is considerably lower. In fact, you will even find that its most sophisticated trim is also hundreds of dollars less than the comparable trim provided by its opponent. That means buyers can expect greater savings by opting for the Ram truck. Best of all, you can apply the money that you save towards upgrades!
