If you need a hard-working truck for the Georgetown roads, then you’ve probably narrowed down your choices to the impressively rugged RAM lineup. But between the RAM 1500 vs. RAM 2500, which is the right choice for your unique needs? While the full-size RAM 1500 is celebrated for its versatility and agility, the heavy-duty RAM 2500 has the extra strength and power to get any job done. Just take a look at the RAM 1500 vs. RAM 2500 weight:

  • Towing Capacity
    • 2019 RAM 1500: 12,750 pounds
    • 2019 RAM 2500: 17,980 pounds
  • Maximum Payload Capacity

Ram 1500 or 2500: Engine Options

Whether you choose the 1500 or 2500 for Cameron travels, you’ll enjoy some of the top technology from RAM. The RAM 1500 offers two powerhouse options, while the 2500 offers three choices. However, both deliver high-octane performances with standard rear-wheel drive and optional 4WD. Let’s take a closer look under the hood:

  • 2019 RAM 1500
    • 3.6L Pentastar V6 with eTorque: 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque
    • 5.7L V8 HEMI MDS VVT: 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 2019 RAM 2500
    • 6.7L Cummins I6 Turbo Diesel: 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque
    • Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI V8: 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque
    • 5.7L HEMI V8 VVT: 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque

Price, Features, and Space

While performance is one of the most important differences between the RAM 1500 vs. RAM 2500, your budget will also play a huge role in the decision-making process. The RAM 1500 has a lower starting MSRP, and you can save around $1,250:

  • 2019 RAM 1500: $31,795 MSRP
  • 2019 RAM 2500: $33,395 MSRP

But ask yourself, what do you want out of your next vehicle? The RAM 1500 can’t match the power of the 2500, but it does offer 6-passenger seating at the base trim level – while the 2500 only offers 3-passenger seating at the base level. The 1500 also offers RamBox Cargo Management and standard Bluetooth connectivity. However, if you need the impressive strength of a true heavy-duty truck in the College Station area, the 2500 is worth the slight price difference. You’ll still get luxuries like parking assist and six-speaker sound system either way, along with nearly double the payload and torque of the 1500.
