2019 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ram 2500 vs 2018 Ram 3500
Ram has 3 main truck models that they base their brand on. Those would be the Ram 1500, the Ram 2500, and the Ram 3500. Obviously, each larger model has more power than the previous one, creating a tougher pickup truck with each step that can haul and tow even more.
The Ram 1500 has just been recently redesigned for its 2019 model, bringing a new look, interior, and sense of performance. With this, we thought it’d be useful to see how the new Ram 1500 compares to its bigger brothers. Here’s the 2019 Ram 1500 vs the 2018 Ram 2500 and the 2018 Ram 3500!

While the new 2019 Ram 1500 does lag behind its big brothers in terms of power, it starts off with 6 passenger seating. That amount of cabin room is only available in the upper trim levels of different cabs on the 2018 Ram 2500 and the 2018 Ram 3500. However, if you’re purely looking in terms of power, then you’ll definitely prefer the 2018 Ram 2500 or the 2018 Ram 3500 over the 2019 Ram 1500. With a 5.7L V8 engine, you’ll be able to tow and haul to your heart’s content.
