TOWING & HAULING

Your new pickup needs to be able to meet your towing needs. Not only does the 2019 Silverado 1500 provide more power, but it also tops the Ram 1500 in terms of towing capacity. While the Ram 1500 can haul up to 11,340 lbs., the Silverado edges it, with a maximum capacity of 11,600 lbs.

 

TECHNOLOGY

Even if your new pickup will primarily be a work truck, you'll appreciate the technology found in both the Silverado and Ram 1500. The Ram truck is well-connected, but similarly priced models can't compete with the advanced tech suite found in the 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ, which includes the following:

  • Chevrolet MyLink® audio system with 8-in. color touchscreen (5-in.)
  • Bluetooth®
  • SiriusXM® satellite radio
  • Rear vision camera
  • Universal home remote
 

INTERIOR

Whether you're driving between jobsites or on a longer road trip, you'll want to enjoy the ride as much as possible. The interior of the Ram 1500 simply doesn't compare to the Silverado's quiet and comfortable cabin that is upgraded with the following features not found in the Ram 1500:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Heated, leather-appointed front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Remote start
  • Driver memory for seat and sideview mirrors
