Finding a new heavy-duty truck in Athens often stymies a lot of business owners and other drivers who get hung up on comparing two solid vehicles: the 2019 RAM 2500 and 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500. These are two top contenders in the world of pickups, but when you get down to the details, it’s easy to see how RAM performance bests Chevy. Learn more about each vehicle’s specs in this handy, detailed guide from Mark Porter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Pomeroy!

RAM vs. Chevy: Towing Capabilities

There are no bones about it: The 2019 RAM towing capacity is monstrous. The Silverado 2500 is no slouch, but side-by-side it’s obvious which heavy-duty pickup will haul more, farther, no matter if it’s a job site in Parkersburg or over hills and mountains far beyond:

2019 RAM 2500: When properly equipped, the RAM 2500 is capable of towing up to 19,780 pounds, earning the accolade of Best-in-Class diesel towing for the 250/2500 truck segment.

2019 Chevy Silverado 2500: The Chevy Silverado 2500, on the other hand, is only able to tow up to 14,500 pounds when properly equipped.

RAM vs. Chevy: Gas Engines

If general power is a spec that matters to you, the RAM 2500 wins out over Silverado too. On Gallipolis streets, the RAM 2500 offers significantly higher horsepower and torque than its competitor:

2019 RAM 2500:

  • 6.4L Heavy-Duty V8 HEMI® with MDS
    • 410 hp
    • 429 lb-ft of torque

2019 Chevy Silverado 2500:

  • Vortec® 6.0L Variable Valve Timing V8 SFI
    • 360 hp
    • 380 lb-ft of torque

RAM 2500 vs. Chevy 2500: Diesel Engines

No matter if it’s a job site requirement, or just personal preference, many drivers look for diesel trucks as an engine class of their own. Again, RAM boasts a higher towing capacity here against Silverado, but the latter has the edge when it comes to general power:

2019 RAM 2500:

  • 6.7L I6 Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine
    • 370 hp
    • 19,780-pound max towing capacity

2019 Chevy Silverado 2500:

  • Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8
    • 445 hp
    • 14,500-pound max towing capacity

While the horsepower numbers are higher for Silverado, most drivers tend to choose diesel engine for its towing capacity. Many shoppers we see end up choosing the RAM 2500 for that reason.
