The New 2019 Ram 1500 Versus the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500

As two of the "Big Three" automotive giants hailing from Detroit, the 2019 Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 both offer drivers an exceptional degree of robust capability. Competition between domestic pickup truck manufacturers has resulted in decades of innovation and significantly enhanced the overall quality of the vehicles within the segment. While other brands attempt to compete with makes such as Ram, Chevy and Ford, ultimately these three continually top the market with their exceptional performance and capability.

With both Ram and Chevy releasing an all-new 2019 model, drivers seeking an advanced pickup truck to replace the aging models of the previous decade may find themselves confused when comparing the vast array of features and specifications. However, while the rivalry between Chevy and Ford continues to capture the attention of these iconic brands, Ram silently perfected their craft--ultimately resulting in the 2019 Ram 1500 usurping the aforementioned manufacturers with unparalleled design and innovative features that usher in the latest generation of pickup trucks.

In addition to the improved efficiency, select models of the Ram 1500 offer superior off-road performance with Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® all-terrain tires, an extra two-inch ride height, and an ELocker® electronic locking rear differential for unsurpassed off-road performance.

Further amending the system, the Chevy Silverado 1500 offers compatibility with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, plus navigation.
