Ares made a single test launch in 2009 before the Obama administration cancelled the human exploration program—Constellation—which required a big new launch vehicle for missions to the moon. 1473 provides $3 billion for NASA's new exploration program, including $1.8 billion for the Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket and $1.2 billion for a crew capsule. SLS, might have been impressive if it was introduced around 1984. After shedding its first stage, the upper stage of the SLS will be powered by JX-2 engines, a smaller, cheaper engine originally designed for the Ares rocket.
But they were promptly put back by the requirement that the SLS will be man rated, as opposed to its original design as Ares V. And _that_ modularity (man vs cargo lift) is rescinded.
It's completely based on the late 70s, I said late 70s, Shuttle Launch System (the Main Tank of the Shuttle as well as the boosters), and yet it is $9B so far, 40 months behind schedule and about $4B overbudget, a decade into development and not a single test launch.
That last Saturn V was a modified version that launched NASA's Skylab space station. You don't need 188 tons per launch in a dual configuration so a smaller rocket would be sufficient. Re: SLS: Shuttle vs Saturn V - FIGHT! The Space Launch System (SLS) is planned to be a US super heavy-lift expendable launch vehicle, which has been under development since its announcement in 2011.It is the primary launch vehicle of NASA's deep space exploration plans, including the planned crewed lunar flights of the Artemis program and a possible follow-on human mission to Mars.

NASA announced plans today (Sept. 14) for its new giant rocket, called the Space Launch System (SLS), that will one day carry astronauts on deep space missions. The Ares I-X weighs 1.8 million pounds (816,466 kg), slightly less than the full Ares I rocket. The real reason Ares V needed 6 uprated RS-68 was that it's payload dwarfed anything SLS will lift. It was designed to put almost triple the mass of a SLS Block 1 payload to TLI. Ares V Lite would do launch lunar missions in a dual launch configuration, with one launching Orion and the other launching Altair. It's a last gen, maybe last 1.5 gen Rocket. The design work on the Ares I Emergency Escape System (EES) Rollercoaster is starting to pick up the pace, as the huge project undergoes further … Inevitably, this discussion involves some speculation, as only Elon Musk and top SpaceX engineers can say for sure what their intention may have been in creating the Falcon Heavy. The SLS… The Falcon Heavy evolved from a radically different design heritage than the SLS, and is based on the technology that powered the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 rockets. The massive booster is … But the SLS borrows certain features from the Ares I rocket, including a new digital engine controller and the use of shuttle-era solid rocket boosters.
and almost double SLS Block 1B. It was proposed as a reworking of Constellation in which Ares I was dropped and replaced by commercial crew. In short, the Saturn V and the SLS are two very different rockets made in two different era’s for two different kinds of purposes.
