Pricing

Chevy has to release the starting MSRP of the 2019 Chevy Silverado, but it's rumored to be just slightly less than the base model of the RAM 1500. The 2019 RAM 1500 boasts a starting MSRP of $31,795. The RAM 1500 will give you the most bang for the buck, however. The 2019 RAM 1500 starts at a fair price with ample power, tech, and convenience features. By contrast, the Chevy Silverado forces drivers to mix-and-match packages to receive desired features like cabin storage add-ons and trailering packages. It also requires drivers to shell out for the more expensive trims.

Capability

A truck should be powerful and efficient, there's no doubt about that. This may just be why the 2019 RAM 1500 offers the best-in-class combined fuel economy with an available V8 4X4 configuration. The new RAM 1500 also delivers best-in-class V8 towing at 12,750 pounds, in addition to a 2,300-pound maximum payload. Drivers can also opt for the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension with automatic load leveling for greater stability on the road when towing. The 2019 Chevy Silverado offers an Advanced Trailering Package and Trailering Camera Package with simple hitching and hauling technologies. Without both of these add-on packages, however, the Chevy Silverado lacks the capability of the RAM 1500.

Safety

The 2019 RAM 1500 features over 100 standard and available safety and security features, according to the manufacturer's website. The Chevy model lacks the sheer number of features that the RAM has. Available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist technology is specific to the 2019 RAM; the model also incorporates 14.9-inch brakes, which are the largest-in-class brakes for the light-duty pickup segment. The Chevy Silverado lacks comparable amenities for these two features.
