The 2019 RAM 1500 and the Chevy Silverado have solid reputations in the industry as pickup trucks that are known to be reliable. The trucks stand out for their towing capabilities and have interiors that are more luxurious. If you're looking to own a new vehicle, it's important to compare the 2019 RAM 1500 with the Chevy Silverado to find the right fit.

Comfort

The large infotainment screen is one of the main highlights in the cabin of the RAM 1500, which makes it the focal point on the dashboard and is where many of the main controls can be found. A significant amount of room is available inside of the cabin with spacious seats that are supportive in the front and back. The Chevy Silverado has a lack of visibility due to a small windshield that is offered despite the size of the truck. The vehicle now comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen radio and a tire-pressure monitoring system. The steering wheel is also off-center, which can affect how comfortable the driver feels while operating the vehicle.

Performance

New shock technology is included in the 2019 Ram 1500 with the coil springs, which prove to be impressive. The air suspension package has also been upgraded on the new model and is designed to be smarter than on the preceding model for a softer ride that is smoother on different types of terrain. The air suspension is also adjustable when going off-roading. Extra cushion is provided on bumpy roads, and a stiffer ride when your driving becomes more aggressive to ensure that you feel comfortable on different types of roads. The V8 HEMI engine is also more responsive because the truck has become lighter. The vehicle gets close to 20 mpg in the city, making it more fuel-efficient than some of its rivals. The suspension is also very flexible if the tires and wheels aren't packed up with mud. The Chevy Silverado is less fuel-efficient than the 2019 RAM 1500 with 17 mpg in the city, meaning you'll spend more to fill up. The vehicle is built with an optional 6.2-liter V-8 engine and has a high level of composure when towing. Unfortunately, the engine is only available on higher trims. It also doesn't accelerate as quickly as the RAM 1500, which can leave you feeling left in the dust when driving next to other pickup trucks on the road.

Consumer Reviews

Many consumers appreciate the rugged but classic design of the 2019 RAM 1500, which stays true to its original look with chrome accents added to make it appear upscale. The 33-inch tires make the car have a commanding appearance with a tread pattern that is also weaved onto the seats on the extra trim package, which is a perk for consumers who appreciate the added details and intentionality of the design of the truck. Car owners of the Chevy Silverado appreciate that the truck sits lower to the ground, which makes it easier to get into each time and also allows it to have better performance. The handsome exterior of the body is appealing to consumers, but some want more power that is available under the hood without having to spend more on a higher trim.
