Once upon a time, the Ram 1500 pickup truck was in third place for truck sales, behind the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado 1500 — but not anymore. In 2019, the Ram 1500 proved that it means business by outselling the Chevy Silverado significantly. Ram truck sales totaled 633,694, while only 575,600 Silverado pickups were sold, including both light- and heavy-duty trucks.
The numbers also show an 18 percent increase in sales for the Ram truck lineup and a 2 percent decrease in sales for the Silverado trucks. This is big news for the pickup truck segment, as it proves that the Ram 1500 is winning over drivers and taking down its competitors with innovative design and powerful capabilities.
In fact, it seems everywhere you turn you hear praise for the Ram 1500. The 2019 model was the Official Truck of Texas, as chosen by Texas Auto Writers Association, and it just made the Consumer Guide® Best Buy list for the 12th year in a row.
With strong powertrains like the newly available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, and innovative features like the available Multifunction Tailgate, it’s not surprising to see the Ram 1500 taking over the segment. Ed Murdock CDJR looks forward to seeing this year’s numbers, as more drivers continue to choose Ram over Chevy models.
