1500 or 2500: Engine Options

You’ll choose between two strong engines for the new RAM 1500, while the new RAM 2500 offers three high-powered options. Rear-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain for both trucks, with an available 4WD system when you step up to higher trim levels. Compare each engine’s horsepower and torque below:

2019 RAM 1500

  • 3.6L Pentastar V6 with eTorque, delivering 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L V8 HEMI® MDS VVT, producing 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque

2019 RAM 2500

  • 6.7L Cummins I6 Turbo Diesel which churns out 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque.
  • Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI V8 creates an impressive 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L HEMI V8 VVT which delivers 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque

Starting MSRP, Features, and Seating

Most Joplin truck shoppers are likely concerned with the baseline sticker price. If you opt for the 1500, your starting MSRP will be $1,250 less than the 2500:

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

While it’s true that the 2019 RAM 1500 doesn’t quite catch up to the power produced by the 2019 RAM 2500, 6-person seating at base level might make it a more attractive option, depending on your needs as a driver.

With the all-new RAM 1500, you can get added storage with the optional RamBox® Cargo Management System, and you’ll enjoy standard Bluetooth® connectivity, which is optional on the 2500. Both trucks come with a parking assist feature, 6-speaker sound system, Uconnect, and much more.
