Under-the-Hood Performance —2019 RAM 1500 vs 2019 GMC Sierra

The new RAM 1500 and GMC Sierra are both available with 4×2 or 4×4 powertrain. Their differences, however, starts underneath the hood. The GMC Sierra 1500 has a respectable 5.3L EcoTec V8 engine that delivers 355 HP and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. However, if you need more to do more, the RAM 1500 will not disappoint.

The RAM’s massive 5.7L Hemi V8 Engine with E-torque delivers a whopping 395 HP and up 410 lb.-ft. of torque, which produces a Best-in-Class 12,750 pounds. That being said, the RAM 1500’s standard 3.6L Pentastar V8 engine is more than enough for all of your pickup needs, but its engine diversity comes in handy when you know no two trips are the same. When it comes to miles per gallon, towing capacity, and payload capacity, the RAM 1500 comes out on top.

Functional & Stylish Exterior — 2019 RAM 1500 vs 2019 GMC Sierra 1500

When it comes to appearance, it is safe to say the Sierra 1500 and RAM 1500 both make their mark. The GMC Sierra has an admirable bold look to its design, but we can’t help but feel like it lacks the originality to separate itself from its other pickup truck classmates. The RAM 1500, on the other hand, is not shy with its unique style, making it stand out from every other type of truck. Its sleek, aerodynamic design is complemented by aggressive lines on the hood that give it a powerful and bold look on the road.

At the same time, the RAM offers several exclusive features you won’t find on the GMC Sierra 1500. The Class-Exclusive RAMBox Cargo Management system features two drainable, lockable storage bins that have LED lighting, remote access via your key fob, and a new 115-volt power outlet. It offers a maximum cargo bed volume of up to 61.5 cubic feet, so you’ll have plenty of space for all of your cargo.

A Look Inside the 2019 RAM 1500 vs 2019 Sierra 1500

Although pickup trucks are known for being powerful vehicles, that does not mean they shouldn’t offer ample comfort and luxury on the inside. From exterior lighting to cozy seats, it’s safe to say that both the RAM 1500 and GMC Sierra have something more than power to offer its drivers. However, only the RAM 1500 holds the title as the “Most Luxurious Truck in the Class.”

The RAM offers the Largest-in-Class 12-inch touchscreen that provides its driver with split-screen capability, physical controls for the most used and important features, and an easy-to-use pinch-and-zoom technology. It includes active noise cancellation that helps reduce ambient sounds to provide Best-in-Class interior quietness. And when it’s time to move, the RAM offers Best-in-Class interior storage and a class-exclusive in-floor storage that boasts almost two times the interior storage as the closest truck competition. A few other notable advantages the RAM offers include:

  • Best-in-Class rear legroom
  • Class-Exclusive rear seat fold-down center console
  • Class-Exclusive available reclining rear seat
  • Class-Exclusive reconfigurable center console
  • Class-Exclusive Type-C USB high-speed charging ports
