2019 RAM 1500 vs. 2019 RAM 2500

When comparing the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 vs. the 2019 RAM 2500, the first thing you need to know is that the 1500 is a full-size pickup truck, while the 2500 is a heavy-duty (HD) truck. The type of work that you’re doing at your Overland Park job site will likely determine whether the RAM 1500 or RAM 2500 is the right choice. In order to figure out which RAM truck you need, it’s important to first understand the capabilities and capacities of each pickup.
