If you've been struggling to sort through your options and choose your next pickup truck, Dodge Chrysler Jeep City is here to make your decision easier by introducing you to the outstanding 2019 Ram 1500. Once you learn about its numerous class-leading specs, you'll be ready to get behind the wheel. To effectively make our case, we're putting this Ram against a tough competitor - the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Let's see which one ends up victorious!

Which Is Stronger - the Ram 1500 or Chevy Silverado 1500?

We know you're anxious to learn which of these trucks is ready for your most challenging jobs, so let's dive right in! Should you choose to equip the Ram 1500 with the optional 5.7L HEMI® V8 powertrain with eTorque, you'll have a staggering 12,750-lb. towing capacity1 under your command. If you decide to upgrade the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 6.2L V8 system, you'll only end up with 12,200-lb. towing capacity2. Similarly, whereas the Ram offers up to a 2,300-lb. payload capacity1, the Chevy falls short with its 2,250-lb. payload capacity3. Incredibly, the truck from Ram manages to effectively seal the deal with its 22 MPG hwy4 fuel economy with its strongest engine. The Silverado 1500 once again falls short, achieving just 20 MPG hwy5.

Exterior Accessories

Surely, you'll need a few amenities on the outside of your truck to make work easier. For this reason, the bed of the 2019 Ram 1500 was designed with your needs in mind. For example, the available Multifunction Tailgate is changing the way people look at liftgates, boasting a unique 60/40 split opening-something no other truck currently offers. As a result, you should have an easier time working in different environments without delay. You may also choose to equip your truck bed with the RamBox® Cargo Management System, which comes with weatherproof and lockable bins for additional stowing potential. If you're looking for these in the Silverado 1500, you won't find them!

Interior Accommodations

We'll wrap things up by exploring what these two trucks have to offer on the inside. If you're hoping to reward yourself, the Ram 1500 more than has you covered, as you could choose to equip a 12-inch touchscreen-the largest such display in its class6! Although the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes with a few different media hubs, the largest screen only comes with an 8-inch display. This trend continues when you opt for premium audio, as the Ram's outstanding 19-speaker stereo easily bests the Silverado 1500's 8-speaker setup. Finally, your crew in the back might feel a bit cramped in the Chevrolet's 43.4 inches of rear legroom, especially when compared with the Ram 1500's class-leading6 45.1 inches of rear leg space.

We hope that this 2019 Ram 1500 vs 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in Burlington, NJ, model comparison has effectively demonstrated what makes the Ram so exceptional.
