2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado
The 2019 RAM 1500 is the reigning king of pickups, one of the most-awarded trucks on the road. It has critics and drivers alike cheering, but there are of course other trucks on the market trying to compete with it. Here’s how another popular model, the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500, stacks up against the 2019 RAM 1500 models available at our Nashua area RAM dealer.
2019 RAM 1500 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500: Performance
Both trucks have a wide variety of trim, body, and engine options at similar price points, and both are pretty capable work trucks. The base 2019 RAM 1500 Tradesman edition, however, has more towing ability than any available Silverado 1500. Even some of the RAM 1500 trims equipped with its smallest, most efficient engine–a 3.6-liter V6–can tow over 7,700 lbs. Most Silverado models with equipped with a much larger 4.3-liter engine can’t even haul that much. Plus, when you upgrade to the RAM 1500’s V8 engine option, you’re getting the most efficient V8 in its class.
2019 RAM 1500 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500: Features
No other truck can match the 2019 RAM 1500’s interior, tech, or luxury, and neither can most other vehicles of any type. Its interior rivals that of luxury sedans, according to its placement on WardsAuto’s 10 Best list for vehicle interiors this year. Of course, the European sports cars that also made the list can’t tow a boat.
The RAM 1500 offers a sprawling 12-inch touchscreen and innovative control suite that allows you to precisely tailor your truck’s communication, navigation, and audio settings to your exact needs. Its roomy cabin, comfortable seats, and available leather-and-wood trim packages create a truly high-end experience. The Silverado, meanwhile, offers a regular-old 8″ touchscreen and interior seating that Car and Driver magazine called “flat, hard, and unsupportive.”

Motortrend named the RAM 1500 its 2019 Truck of the Year for a reason–actually, several of them. Car and Driver agreed, calling the 2019 RAM 1500 “our new favorite full-size pickup” for its great performance and features, meanwhile placing the 2019 Silverado at the bottom of the list for its poor seating and towing experience.
So if you’re in the market for a new pickup truck, the choice is pretty clear. Visit Contemporary CDJR to see why the 2019 RAM 1500 beats out not just the Chevy Silverado, but practically any other new pickup truck on the road.
