If you are in the market for a new pickup, you will undoubtedly have noticed that there are lots of options available to you. However, there are two trucks that stand out from the competition: The Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado. As such, when it comes time to make your final purchasing decision, there is a good chance that you will find yourself choosing between these two vehicles. But which one is right for you?
The team here at Musson-Patout CDJR near Broussard, LA, believes that the best way to choose between two vehicles is to look at the facts and analyze how they stack up against each other. With this in mind, we have compiled the following report, which we hope will guide you toward the right decision:
Both the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 place a huge emphasis on vehicle safety. These two trucks are packed full of protective tools like anti-lock brakes, rearview cameras and daytime running lights. However, when you are deliberating over your choice between them, it is worth noting that the Ram offers quite a few safety features that are not available in the Chevy. If you would like to get behind the wheel of a pickup that offers backup collision prevention brakes and a cross-path warning system, the 2019 Ram is the one to pick.
The 2019 Ram 1500 also comes out ahead of the 2019 Chevy Silverado when it comes to towing capacity. Though the Silverado’s minimum standard towing capacity of 5,500 pounds is nothing to be sniffed at, it is still quite a bit lower than the 6,280-pound capacity on offer in the Ram. If you plan on using your new pickup to pull a trailer, the Ram is the clear choice. You never know when that additional towing capacity might come in handy!
For a quick overview of some of the other differences between the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you can take a look at the following chart:
