At Sharp Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we’re here to help you see how these two trucks compare with regard to performance, cargo management, interior features, and more.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Capability & Performance

Searching for a powerful truck to help you make more of your towing or hauling tasks near Lawerenceburg? While the Chevy Silverado has plenty of power, the RAM 1500 has more, still:

  • RAM 1500 Engine, Towing, & Payload: The standard RAM 1500 engine is a potent V6 that generates 305 hp, a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, and a maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds.
  • Silverado 1500 Engine, Towing, & Payload: The standard Silverado 1500 engine puts out 285 hp, a maximum towing capacity of 13,400 pounds, and a maximum payload capacity of 2,250 pounds.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Fuel Efficiency

The RAM 1500 offers both more power and more payload capacity than the Silverado 1500, though the Silverado 1500 offers more towing capacity than the RAM 1500. Still, what the RAM 1500 lacks in towing capacity it more than makes up for in base fuel economy:

  • RAM 1500 Base Fuel Economy: With its EPA-estimated 19 mpg city rating and 24 mpg highway rating, the RAM 1500 is hard to beat in its class where fuel economy is concerned.
  • Silverado 1500 Fuel Economy: The Chevy Silverado achieves up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city, but falls short of the RAM 1500 fuel economy highway ranking, achieving an EPA-estimated 22 mpg highway ranking.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Cargo Management

Though the RAM 1500 offers slightly higher cargo-hauling capability than the Silverado 1500, this will matter less to some Lewisburg truck buyers than the cargo management specs the RAM 1500 has to offer. The 2020 RAM 1500 really shines in this area with the following amenities:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: You won’t find these innovative features in the Chevy Silverado 1500! What does it do? RAMBox® offers you two class-exclusive storage compartments on the exterior that are lockable and waterproof to give you an extra edge and peace-of-mind to store important items. The newest RAMBox® systems also feature drain plugs so you can use them as coolers!
  • Multifunction Tailgate: This unique RAM feature is designed with two doors that swing open to 88° for easier cargo access than you’ll find in the competition, including the Silverado.
  • In-Floor Storage: In-floor storage bins make even more room for you to store your stuff, including valuables you don’t want readily seen or accessed.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Interior Amenities

From Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration to available premium sound, the RAM 1500 offers plenty of tech features and interior amenities that give it a leg up on the competition:

  • Uconnect®4C NAV: This user-friendly infotainment interface includes a unique customizable home screen with split-screen technology, physical controls for adjusting important features, and full-screen navigation with SiriusXM® with 360L.
  • 12-inch touchscreen: The available 12-inch touchscreen upgrade provides the largest-in-class screen for a light-duty pickup.
  • Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System: Looking to blow your mind with amazing sound? This available 900-watt premium sound system includes 19 speakers (that we hope you don’t blow, too) while rocking out to your favorite tunes.
