Serving Merrillville, IN

When it comes to driving a pickup truck, modern drivers desire to have a high level of performance along with advanced features that are available in the cabin. Both the 2019 RAM 1500 and the 2019 Chevy Silverado are rivals of one another due to their innovation. Here are a few comparisons between both models when you want to purchase a new truck.

Performance

Built with a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, the new RAM 1500 is incredibly powerful and produces 395 horsepower, which makes it one of the top trucks on the road. The fuel efficiency of the new RAM 1500 is also impressive with 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Drivers will find that the vehicle has plenty of traction with 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels that come standard and enhance the exterior styling of the model. The steel frame of the truck not only contributes to its masculine look but also increases the strength of the vehicle.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers many different powertrains, depending on your towing and hauling needs. The truck comes with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that has an eight-speed automatic transmission and generates 285 to 420 horsepower. Unfortunately, it’s less fuel-efficient than the RAM with 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Interior Features

On the dashboard, you can turn the truck into an entertainment center or a mobile office.

Leather upholstery is available on the Classic Laramie trim for added luxury. An ample amount of storage solutions are offered for plenty of areas to keep items in discrete locations in the cabin.

The interior of the new Silverado 1500 looks old and outdated compared to what you’ll find in the RAM 1500’s interior setting. Fortunately, plenty of legroom is available due to the longer cabin but the seats aren’t as plush as what you’ll find in the 1500. A new touchscreen is available on the dashboard, which features clear graphics and is easy to use. Many of the features that are offered don’t come standard, which affects the value and accommodation of the pickup truck.
