Finding a truck that offers the perfect balance of utility and luxury so you can easily transition from the work week to the weekend is not an easy task, but the 2019 RAM 1500 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 manage to do so pretty well. So, which light-duty truck is right for you? Compare the new RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado with Outten CDJR below to find out!

Silverado or RAM 1500: Performance

We can’t deny that the Chevy Silverado provides good competition in terms of performance. Still, the RAM 1500 manages to carve out a spot on top, even at its entry-level configuration:

  • RAM 1500: The base engine on the RAM 1500 is a 305-hp V6. Or, you can opt for a 5.7L HEMI® V8 that delivers 395 hp and a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds.
  • Silverado 1500: The Silverado 1500, on the other hand, generates a mere 285 hp with its base V6 engine, and its towing capacity maxes out at 12,200 pounds.

If you want dependable power for your Reading jobs, the RAM 1500 is clearly the favorable choice.

Silverado or RAM 1500: Cargo Management

When you buy a pickup truck, you expect it to come equipped with plenty of convenient storage solutions. Both the RAM 1500 and the Silverado 1500 meet that standard, but we think the RAM wins again in this category due to its class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System. Read more, below:

  • RamBox® Cargo Management System: This optional feature on your RAM 1500 gives another meaning to storage solutions. It’s comprised of two storage bins that are built right into the walls of your truck bed, which are lockable, drainable, weather-proof, and illuminated by LEDs.
  • Reconfigurable Center Console: Yet another class-exclusive feature, the available reconfigurable center console allows you to customize your console to whatever you need to put in it. No more awkward stacking of personal items for you!

You can search for comparable features in the Chevy Silverado, but you simply won’t find them.

Silverado or RAM 1500: Interior Features

Both the Silverado and RAM 1500 are available with intuitive technology like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, but the RAM offers its own set of Best-in-Class options that you’ll be sorely missing in the Silverado:

    • Uconnect® 4C NAV: Make and answer phone calls hands-free and navigate from Pottsville to Schuylkill Haven with confidence when you use 3-D maps with Uconnect® Navigation.
    • 12-inch touchscreen: The touchscreen in the 2019 RAM 1500 is the largest in its class, and it allows you to customize your home screen however you like.
  • Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System: You won’t find a more powerful sound system in any competing trucks!
