How much performance, power and utility do you want out of your Ram pickup? That’s what it comes down to when deciding which of the Ram 1500, 2500 or 3500 trucks is the right one for you. Each truck is extremely capable and ready for hard work, just in different capacities. The Ram 1500 is a half-ton, the Ram 2500 a three-quarter ton and the Ram 3500 a one ton, for whatever tough job you need out of your pickup. Follow along with us at Go Auto Mississauga Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, your top Ram Mississauga dealer, as we go over the engine and capability differences of each truck.
The Ram 1500 is your classic Ram for a reason; it’s an easy entrance into Ram pickups that gives you a load of performance and capability no matter the trim. Three engines are available on the 2019 1500 with the 3.6L Pentastar™V6 (with eTorque) and the 5.7L HEMI® VVT V8 (with or without eTorque). This top engine level gets 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity reaches 12,750 lbs (5,783 kg), with a payload max at 2,300 lbs (1,043 kg). For a terrific base level of power and capability, the 2019 Ram 1500 gets the job done, but only scratches the surface of what Ram trucks are capable of.
A big upgrade right off the bat in the 2019 Ram 2500 is the availability of the 6.4L HEMI® V8. This gas engine nets you 410 horsepower, the best in its segment. Coupled with this is the 2500’s Best-in-Class towing, getting 19,780 lbs (8,972 kg) when equipped with the height of its capabilities. The payload max is 4,050 lbs (1,837 kg), more than enough for anything you need to haul in the generous box of this pickup. If power and capability aren’t the only things to sway you, how about the top-of-the-line technology in this pickup beast? A 12-inch touchscreen is found in the lastest Ram 2500, the largest one found in a heavy-duty truck. As a mid-tier option, the Ram 2500 gives you a boost in capability.
The Ram 3500 boasts Best-in-Class capabilities over both diesel and gas variants. Its diesel towing and torque clock in with 35,100 lbs (15,921 kg) and 1,000 lb-ft, respectively. Its gas engine joins in on the Best-in-Class fun with a payload max of 7,680 lbs (3,484 kg). This supremely capable pickup is the height of Ram truck performance, engineered to get the best out of your heavy duty truck needs. The 3500 has a similar look to both the 1500 and 2500, but with a larger rear wheelbase to assist with all the power contained within the pickup.
