2019 Ram 1500 vs. Its Competition

2019 Ram 1500
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 2019 Ram 1500 is most often compared to the Ford and Chevy full-sizers, although all three have deeply entrenched fans.

The Ram doesn't have a powertrain ace up its sleeve anymore—Ford now offers a turbodiesel, which used to be a Ram exclusive feature.

Ram now offers a mild-hybrid system that other automakers seem to have skipped, but we're not yet sure how it performs.

The Toyota and Nissan full-sizers are somewhat outliers, kept further at a distance now that the Ram can tow up to 12,700 pounds in V-8 configuration.

Quick Specs
5.8
The 2019 Ram 1500 sets the bar high for full-size pickup trucks.
5.6
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is more refined and useful for cargo, though it isn’t as polished inside as the new Ram 1500.
6.5
The 2019 Ford F-150 hangs on to its best-selling truck title with a bevy of powertrains, thousands of build possibilities, and a seemingly endless reserve of truck bona fides.
5.6
The 2019 GMC Sierra steers out of the max-tow race; instead, it puts its marker down on smart and easy-to-use technology.
4.5
The 2019 Nissan Titan is out of step with far more advanced rivals that don’t cost much more.
5.0
The 2019 Toyota Tundra has its virtues, but it’s a dated pickup truck ripe for redesign.
