  • Towing and Payload: Ram trucks always exceed standards when it comes to towing and payload capabilities. This is because those who drive trucks need a reliable support system that can handle any task related to carrying and pulling important cargo. The 2019 Ram 1500, when equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine with eTorque, reaches a towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and a payload capacity of 2,300 pounds. Both amounts exceed what the 2018 Chevy Silverado offers its drivers who need to haul or tow an excessively heavy load.
  • Revolutionary eTorque: Speaking of eTorque, this is something unique that the 2019 Ram 1500 includes. This available feature is a mild hybrid system that is described as a 48-volt battery-operated motor generator that replaces what used to be the old-style alternator. Having eTorque accompany two of its engine options provides the 2019 Ram 1500 with higher fuel-efficiency and unbeatable towing and payload capabilities compared to the 2018 Silverado.
  • Transmission: Just like in a sedan or an SUV, a truck deserves a smooth ride. In the 2019 Ram 1500, the TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission is a standard across all six trim options. This level of transmission is geared to connect with the eTorque feature of the engine and help increase drivability, overall performance and fuel economy.
