If you’re searching for a new truck to serve those unique needs, you’ve likely come across the 2019 RAM 1500 and the 2019 Chevy Silverado. These two best-selling pickups certainly provide for many on and off the job, but how do they match up head-to-head when it comes to performance, cargo management, and interior features? Explore the RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado in detail to find out!

Silverado or RAM 1500: Performance

To start, the new RAM 1500 in Morton provides significant performance advantages over Silverado. Examine the specs for yourself:

  • RAM 1500: Standard V6 engine, 305 hp, 12,750-pound max towing capacity, available 5.7L HEMI® V8 generating 395 hp
  • Silverado 1500: Standard V6 engine, 285 hp, 12,200-pound max towing capacity

The RAM 1500 certainly has the advantage over the Silverado when it comes to power, and that gives it the edge on job sites and in the wild.
