Pickup trucks continue to be the most popular vehicles in America thanks to their powerful engines and towing capabilities, increasingly comfortable and luxurious interiors, and reliability and safety scores. While automakers across the globe produce pickup trucks, the industry's leading trucks have been and continue to be American-made. The two top contenders currently on the market include the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but which is the superior pickup truck? The clear winner is the 2019 Ram 1500 for these reasons and more:

Price

It's no secret that pickup trucks are expensive, but in terms of an investment, they are probably the most valuable vehicle to purchase. However, you will want to find any way you can to bring the price down. That's why this win goes to the 2019 Ram 1500. The Ram 1500 starts at $31,795 while the starting MSRP for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is $32,300, $505 more than the Ram 1500.

Fuel Economy

The savings continue with the 2019 Ram 1500 when you factor in fuel costs. The Ram 1500's standard engine is the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 with eTorque, but you can upgrade to a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with or without eTorque technology. Ram's new eTorque Mild Hybrid System improves fuel economy, which has helped the Ram 1500 to achieve best-in-class 4x4 fuel economy and best-in-class available V8 4x4 combined fuel economy. With the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, the Ram 1500 achieves up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway.

While Chevrolet has made attempts at making the 2019 Silverado 1500 more fuel efficient, the efforts do not compare. Ram created a new hybrid system while Chevy just offers cylinder deactivation on its gas-powered engines for the Silverado.

Interior Design

Ram labels the 2019 Ram 1500 as the "most luxurious truck in its class," and that's nowhere more evident than inside the new Ram 1500. In fact, the 2019 Ram 1500's sophisticated interior was included on the 2018 Wards 10 Best Interiors list.

The interior features innovative infotainment technology. The Uconnect® system, for instance, is available with a 12-inch touch screen - that's 4 inches larger than the biggest one offered in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Another key entertainment feature inside the 2019 Ram 1500 is the available 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system.

The Ram 1500 interior also includes Active Noise Cancellation, available leather seating, an available 10-square-foot dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and best-in-class rear legroom.
