Pickup trucks have advanced over the years from your basic work trucks into everything from off-road crawlers to luxurious family haulers all with the capability to tow the biggest toys. The increased interest in the truck segment has made the competition pretty stiff. So to help make your decision easier on which truck to buy we've compared two of the top contenders on the market. On one side we have the completely redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 with a higher towing capacity than ever before. On the other side, we have the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. So keep reading down below as we break it all down for you, so you can pick the truck that's right for you.

2019 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

The 2019 Ram 1500 sets the bar pretty high by offering up to 12,750 pounds of towing capacity provided by the available V8 engine. This 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with an eTorque Mild Hybrid System produces 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque is just as impressive with a best-in-class horsepower of 305, best-in-class 4x4 fuel economy, and a best-in-class 4x4 driving range of up to 624 miles. The Pentastar engine also allows the Ram 1500 to tow up to 7,730 pounds. Ram also offers a second variation of the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine which is capable of towing up to 11,610 pounds.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado  Power & Handling

Chevrolet offers several different engines for the Silverado but unlike with the Ram 1500, the engines are exclusive to specific models. The Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss all come with a 4.3-liter V6 with Active Fuel Management that makes 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. The LT and RST come standard with a 2.7-liter Turbo with Active Fuel Management that pumps out 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile the LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country all come standard with a 5.3-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management. This engine makes 355 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque, and is only capable of towing up to 9,800 pounds.

2019 Ram 1500 Features & Design

Ram starts things off with the Tradesman model which includes a Class III hitch receiver, vinyl upholstery, 18-inch steel wheels, trailer sway control, a locking tailgate, and a 5-inch touchscreen. The off-road-oriented Rebel model comes with hill descent control, front tow hooks, fortified shocks and suspension, skid plates, and an electronic-locking rear axle. If you're looking for luxury you can opt for the Laramie model which comes with leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a nine-speaker sound system. The even more luxurious Longhorn model adds heated and ventilated reclining rear seats, navigation, a power tailgate release, a spray-in bed liner, and chrome side steps. Ram also offers several available features including a 12-inch touchscreen, RamBox bed storage, bed lighting, a surround-view camera system, and more!

2019 Chevrolet Silverado  Features & Design

Eight different trim levels are available for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado including Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country. The base model makes for a pretty bare-bones truck with features like air conditioning, 17-inch steel wheels, and a six-speaker sound system. The next step up in the model lineup doesn't get you to many more features either. The Custom model comes with front tow hooks, remote entry, and cruise control. You have to move pretty far down the model lineup to get high-tech features like navigation, heated front seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Several packages are available for the Silverado including the Safety Package, Safety Package II, and the Technology package. The Safety Package II is only available for the two highest trim levels and includes lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Conclusions

It is clear to see that the 2019 Ram 1500 is simply the better truck in every single way. The Silverado just can't compete with the Ram 1500's massive amount of towing capability. If you're interested in learning more about the 2019 Ram 1500 you can read our full review linked up below.
