The 2019 RAM 1500 features premier light duty truck innovations such as a multifunction tailgate and a lighting system that knows how to work with you. Brad Deery Motors praised this truck from the moment it rolled onto our lot, but we realize that even the 1500 has competitors (and fine ones at that). Take for example the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. It's a fine truck in its own right, offering GMC designed work perks that comparable trucks wouldn't even think to offer. In Maquoketa Iowa, we love our trucks, and we're here to show you just how the 2019 RAM 1500 vs 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 race plays out. Learn about all the reasons you need to make RAM's 2019 creation your next light duty pickup truck. It's a sleek exterior with brand new aerodynamic features.

Towing Power - 2019 RAM 1500

A light duty pickup truck that offers a 5.7-liter HEMIĀ® V8 engine is a special light duty truck indeed. The RAM 1500 offers you this and manages to also offer an enormous class-leading 12,750 pound maximum towing capacity, a number that the Sierra 1500 could hardly be expected to keep up with. For its part, the Sierra 1500 only offers you up to 9,700 pound towing capacity, and we'd argue that this number would be inferior to a few other trucks out there, not just the RAM's 1500. Why did GMC decide to leave the Sierra 1500 so woefully low on towing power? We're not sure. What we are sure of is that RAM didn't leave out this little detail, and that you can look forward to massive amounts of towing power with your RAM 1500. Tow boats, campers, and just about anything else you need to tow. You'll never have to worry about being short of towing power with the RAM 1500.

Interior - 2019 RAM 1500 in Maquoketa

Controlling your connectivity on the go is an important consideration for any automaker today. Customers want a robust touchscreen dash that is vibrant, lively, and capable of both entertaining and helping with navigation. Only the RAM 1500 covers this category! You'll get a UConnect 12-inch touchscreen dash as optional, or an 8.4 inch touchscreen dash as standard on lower trims. Both of these options are still bigger than the 8-inch touchscreen offered by the 2019 Sierra 1500. An 8-inch touchscreen on a light duty pickup truck is still a generous offering by GMC, but even luxury sedans have a difficult time keeping up with the interior tech of the RAM 1500 models. It's a world apart, offering voice recognition, connectivity features, premium audio, and so many other highly advanced interior technology features. Few trucks could keep up. RAM's decision to bring the RAM 1500 into the modern world with interior technology has been the delight of every truck owner in the world for a couple of years now, but they've never done it as perfectly as they did in 2019.
