Anyone looking to up their truck game is most definitely going to be impressed with the selection of truck models in 2019. It seems that all of the top brands have completely redesigned their large trucks, with a focus not only on increasing towing capabilities, but also improving fuel economy. Two of the top competitors in the large pickup truck segment include the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2019 Ford F-150. In 2019, the 1500 has reduced its overall weight, added a new mild hybrid power system, and upped the payload and towing capacity. The F-150 has made forward collision warning with emergency braking standard, it has added a diesel engine, and the standard fuel tank for the Limited and Raptor trim is now 36-gallons. To find out which of these trucks you’ll want to drive home, keep reading down below!
