2019 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

This engine has the power to produce up to 269 lb-ft of torque, and 305 horsepower. Not only do you have this as your standard engine, but you can also choose the optional 5.7-liter V8. This V8 is available on every model, except the HFE. You'll be outputting around 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 horsepower. The standard transmission for both engines is an eight-speed automatic, and you'll also get rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is an option for every trim, except the HFE. No matter which engine you have under the hood of your 2018 Ram 1500, you'll be getting the power you need to perform any task.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Power & Handling

Chevrolet seems to go overboard when it comes to options. The 2019 Silverado comes with six engine and transmission combinations. It seems a tad excessive, especially since the Ram has proven that quality is preferable to quantity. Still, you have a long list of options. One of these includes a 4.3-liter V6 engine with Active Fuel Management, which gets paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Another available engine a new 6.2-liter V8, which works with Dynamic Fuel Management and a ten-speed automatic transmission. Somewhere in the middle is a turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-4, which comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Active Fuel Management. The other engines include a 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 3.0-liter inline-6 diesel.

2019 Ram 1500 Features & Design

The Ram 1500 features seven model options in the lineup. The first of these is the Tradesman, which is the perfect workhorse. You'll get features like automatic headlights, a Class II hitch receiver, heated side mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, rear-seat USB charge ports, a 5-inch touchscreen, an auxiliary audio jack, a locking tailgate, trailer sway control, push-button ignition, a 40/20/40-split folding bench seat, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker audio system. Another option, called the Laramie, adds even more features, including front and rear parking sensors, power-adjustable 40/20/40-split bench front seats, driver-seat position memory, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front outboard seats, power-adjustable pedals with memory and keyless entry. The highest available Ram 1500 is the Limited, which adds adjustable air suspension, power-retractable side steps, blind-spot monitoring, chrome exterior trim, premium-leather bucket seats, and rear cross-traffic alert.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Features & Design

Like the excess of engine options, there are eight unique trim levels available with the 2019 Silverado. The base model is called Work Truck, and it features 17-inch steel wheels, a "CHEVROLET" graphic across the tailgate and grille, blacked-out trim, a Chevrolet infotainment system, vinyl or cloth seats, and a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen. Another trim you can choose from is the LT, which includes signature daytime running lights, chrome accents on the bumpers, Chevrolet bowtie in the grille, front grille and mirror caps, LED reflector headlamps, and an 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen. The highest available model is the High Country, which will get you a power tailgate, body-color accents, and a front grille design with two-tone chrome and bronze finish.
