2019 RAM 3500 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500

Buying a new truck can be tough. There’s only a few options when you get into super Heavy Duty territory, and they’ve all earned their place thanks to their great capability and the historic brands that produce them.

But one has got to be the best choice, which is why we thought it’d be useful to compare the 2019 RAM 3500 and the 2019 Chevy SIlverado 3500HD.

Raw Power

Heavy duty trucks are going to offer standard V8 engines, that’s a given. The 2019 RAM 3500’s standard 6.4-Liter Heavy-Duty V8 HEMI® with MDS produces 410 horsepower compared to only 360 horsepower from the Silverado’s Vortec® 6.0L Variable Valve Timing V8 SFI engine.The real difference is in torque, though: Whereas the Chevy only delivers 380 lb-ft of torque at4200 rpm, the RAM 3500HD grinds out 429. When equipped with the larger 6.7L I6 CumminsHO Turbo Diesel Engine, the RAM 3500 is the only pickup truck on the market that can generate a crushing 1,000 lb-ft of torque.

Towing Capability

Both of these trucks are meant to pull heavy loads, and both of them can pull five-figure trailers with ease. But when it comes to maximum towing capacity, it isn’t even close: A properly outfitted 2019 RAM 3500 Tradesman can tow up to 35,100 pounds, while even the most juiced-up 2019 Silverado 3500 model taps out miles below at just 22,700.

Elite Interiors

Both trucks offer a wide array of unique trim levels with varying degrees of comfort, ruggedness, and luxury, but most European sedans can’t much the styling and tech packed into the 2019 RAM 3500’s cabin…let alone a Chevy Silverado. The two take their interior cues from their 1500-class nephews: The RAM was named one of the best car interiors in the country, while the Silverado was an unremarkable truck interior with uncomfortable seats.

RAM is the Clear Choice

Sacramento drivers have a pretty clear choice if they’re in the market for a heavy duty pickup: The 2019 RAM 3500. Schedule a RAM test drive with Hoblit DCJR today to experience the difference for yourself.
