Ram 1500 vs. Ram 2500: Engine Options

In order to reach such impressive payload and towing weights, these trucks need to be outfitted with the right engine. For the 2019 Ram 1500, drivers have the choice between two powerful engines, whereas 2500 buyers can pick from three different engines. Whether you choose the 1500 or 2500, each truck comes equipped with rear-wheel drive as its standard option, although a 4WD option can be opted for in higher trims on both trucks. Compare the engines between these trucks and see which would be best for you:

2019 Ram 2500

Ram 1500 vs. Ram 2500: Features, Seating, and MSRP

Springfield or Huber Heights drivers who have a more limited budget may look to the cheaper Ram 1500 instead of the Ram 2500. Here are their respective starting MSRP prices:

  • 2019 Ram 1500 – Starting MSRP $31,795
  • 2019 Ram 2500 – Starting MSRP $33,395

While it’s true that the 2019 Ram 1500 can’t produce the power that the 2500 does, it makes up in interior features. The Ram 1500 can be equipped with six seats in the base-level trim, whereas the 2500 seats a maximum of three in its low-end trim. Each truck has some similar technology features, like standard six-speaker sound systems and a parking assist feature, but the 1500 also comes standard with Bluetooth capability whereas that’s an additional upgrade on the base-level Ram 2500.
