Using this handy guide, it’s easy to compare performance specs and pricing between 1500 or 2500 to make an informed decision. Let’s start by taking a close look at each vehicle’s towing and payload capacities before you read up on RAM 1500 weight:
Two robust engines are available with the 2019 RAM 1500, while the 2500 gives you the choice between three high-powered options.

1500 or 2500: Starting MSRP, Features, and Seating
More than likely, the baseline sticker price is a prior factor when considering your Nashville needs in a vehicle. The 1500 has the edge here, starting at $1,250 less than the 2500:
2019 RAM 1500 – Starting MSRP $31,795
2019 RAM 2500 – Starting MSRP $33,395
The new 2019 RAM 1500 can’t quite match the power output of the 2500, but it does provide six-passenger seating at the base trim level. The 2019 2500 entry-level model can only seat up to three. Both trucks provide a parking assist feature and a six-speaker sound system, but the 1500 has the optional RamBox® Cargo Management System. The 1500 delivers Bluetooth connectivity standard, which is only provided as an option with the base level 2500. Looking for more information on standard and available features?
