2019 Ram 1500 vs 2019 Chevrolet Silverado near Middletown, NJ

No longer are sedans or SUVs the only option for people with families. Pickup trucks, while giving you power and towing capabilities, have become more comfortable and technologically advanced. This means if you do a lot of towing, but you also have a family that deserves the best, it's time to consider a large truck. Two of the best in the segment include the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. These trucks offer the kinds of features you've been waiting for. The Ram 1500 was completely redesigned, which means in 2019 it offers a unique design, a reduction in weight, a mild hybrid system for the engines, and more space in the rear seats. The Silverado has also been redesigned as it is available with multiple powertrains, a longer cabin, and even a new touchscreen display. But which one is better? Keep reading as we compare these two trucks and figure out which one comes out on top.

2019 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

What makes the Ram 1500 stand out from the crowd isn't simply its style, it is the legend that comes with it. The engines are reliable, powerful, and up for any challenge. The first is a 3.6-liter V6, which has the capability of producing 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 hp. A mild-hybrid system comes standard with this engine to give you great fuel economy. The other engine is a 5.7-liter V8, which can get you around 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 hp. The mild-hybrid system is optional with this engine, although an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. You'll also be able to choose between two-wheel drive, or even four-wheel drive for added traction and assistance in difficult environments.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Power & Handling

The Silverado is available with a fairly extensive engine lineup. First up is a 4.3-liter V6, which comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. This engine outputs 285 horsepower. Connected with an eight-speed automatic transmission is a 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which creates 310 horsepower. Another engine, a 5.3-liter V8, is available with either a six-speed or eight-speed automatic transmission. The last option is a 6.2-liter V8, which comes with a ten-speed automatic transmission and produces 420 horsepower. While the Silverado certainly has more available engines, we're still inclined to give this one to the Ram 1500, thanks to its reliable track record.

2019 Ram 1500 Features & Design

In order to further customize the Ram 1500 to fit your needs, this truck is available with an impressive seven trim level options. The first of these is called Tradesman, which offers technology based features like Bluetooth, a 5-inch touchscreen display, a Uconnect infotainment system, a 6-speaker audio system, an auxiliary audio jack, rear-seat USB charge ports, cruise control, and dual USB inputs. You'll also get push-button ignition, air conditioning, a Class III hitch receiver, vinyl flooring and upholstery, automatic headlights, and a rearview camera. You should also consider looking at Laramie, which includes power-adjustable 40/20/40-split bench front seats, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, front and rear parking sensors, driver-seat position memory, leather upholstery, and power-adjustable pedals with memory. The highest trim is Limited, which includes premium-leather bucket seats, an adjustable air suspension, rear cross-traffic alert, power-retractable side steps, blind-spot monitoring, and chrome exterior trim.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Features & Design

The other truck we're looking at, Silverado, offers eight trim levels. The base trim WT is severely lacking in standard features, as it only offers air conditioning, a 6-speaker audio system, a 7-inch touchscreen, 17-inch steel wheels, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, and a tilt-only steering wheel. To get more features you'll have to move up to the Custom trim, which adds remote entry, 20-inch wheels, deep-tinted glass, front tow hooks, cruise control, and power and heated mirrors. The only comprehensively-equipped model is High Country, which adds a 7-speaker Bose audio system, blind-spot monitoring, chrome side step rails, rear cross-traffic alert, ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, a spray-on bedliner, and lane departure warning.

Conclusions

The winner is clear! The 2019 Ram 1500 not only comes with reliable engines that get the job done, but it offers a standard model that comes with a long list of standard features. The Silverado simply lacks when it comes to its standard features, which forces you to buy a higher trim. Read our full model review of the Ram 1500 down below for more information.
