2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Drivers in the market for a new truck to upgrade their Monticello worksite or weekend projects will certainly find themselves comparing the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado. While both trucks come in a multitude of configurations to provide the cab, bed, and power combination you need, the RAM 1500 comes loaded with features that the Silverado simply does not. If you’re still wondering whether the Silverado or RAM 1500 is right for your Logansport lifestyle, let this comparison show you all the ways in which RAM trucks pull ahead of the competition. 

RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado: Performance

With an overwhelming amount of engine options and trim levels, sifting through the Silverado offerings can get tricky. Does the Silverado or RAM 1500 offer more power? To simplify, let’s have a look at the base-model V6 from the RAM 1500 and Silverado: 

RAM 3.6L Pentastar® V6

  • 305 hp
  • 269 lb-ft of torque
  • Paired with TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission

Chevrolet 4.3L EcoTec3 V6

  • 285 hp
  • 305 lb-ft of torque
  • Paired with 6-speed automatic transmission

With the base RAM 1500 V6, you’ll get more horsepower than the base model Silverado can generate. Additionally, RAM gives you the option to upgrade to an EcoDiesel V6 that jacks the torque up to 480 lb-ft and can haul up to 12,560 pounds around Rensselaer. 

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado: Features

While it’s true that both of these trucks include tech innovations like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration, the new RAM 1500 presents a luxurious interior sanctuary and advanced cargo features you won’t get on the Silverado. The optional dual-pane panoramic sunroof and 60/40 split opening tailgate are just the beginning of the features exclusive to RAM. Here’s what else the RAM 1500 offers Monon drivers:

  • Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation features
  • 12-inch touchscreen control center
  • 19-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System
  • Reconfigurable center console
  • RamBox® Cargo Management System
  • Natura Plus filigree leather seats
