2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 Ram 2500


Ram trucks are known for their durability, strong looks, and work-ready performance. Having trouble picking between the 2019 Ram 1500and Ram 2500? Both find many ways to impress hard workers around Del Rio, and we are here to help you dig a little deeper into their capabilities, prices, and trims. Cecil Atkission Motors Uvalde also has competitive financing and leasing dealsto get you in the Ram truck that ultimately wins your vote!


Both the Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 have impressive performance numbers, but the Ram 2500 will obviously give you more strength overall. The Ram 1500 is still quite capable, so it all depends on what you’re looking to accomplish with your truck in Hastings. Check out some differences:


  • Ram 1500 – maxes out at 12,750 for Best-in-Class V8 towing
  • Ram 2500 – maxes out at 17,980 lbs.


  • Ram 1500 – 395 hp
  • Ram 2500 – 410 hp (Best-In-Class gas horsepower)


  • Ram 1500 – 2,300 lbs.
  • Ram 2500 – 3,990 lbs.


  • Ram 1500 – 410 lb-ft.
  • Ram 2500 – 429 lb-ft.

The Ram 2500 wins in terms of towing and payload, but its horsepower and torque are comparable to its 1500 companion. Put simply, if you need to tow and haul a lot, the 2500 is the better option, but the 1500’s best-in-class V8 towing leaves other light-duty trucks looking weak.

Price and Trims

The base trim of the Ram 1500, the Tradesman, has a starting price of $31,695, while the Ram 2500 Tradesman starts at $43,240.

The Ram 1500’s price escalates throughout its six trims, topping out at $54,090 for the Limited. The Ram 2500 has seven trims, topping out at $57,895. The more needs you have in terms of bed size, diesel or gas options, etc. makes the price difference becomes less and less noticeable.
