In the end, when you’re asking yourself the question of Chevy or RAM, we think the decision will be pretty simple!

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Performance

These pickup trucks are top competitors for a reason, but when you compare their performance, you’ll see why the new 2019 RAM 1500 comes out on top:

  • RAM 1500: The base level engine on the RAM 1500 is a powerful V6 that delivers an impressive 305 hp. Or, if you’d like to upgrade, you can get a 5.7L HEMI® V8 that will amp up your horsepower to 395. When properly equipped, the RAM 1500 maximum towing capacity is 12,750 pounds.
  • Silverado 1500: The Silverado offers a significantly lower horsepower of 285 at the base level, generated by a V6 engine. With its most powerful engine, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 12,500 pounds.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Cargo Management

What’s under the hood is important, but it’s not the only thing that matters. With the RAM 1500, you’ll get these organizational interior cargo features:

  • Reconfigurable Center Console: Rework your console to what best suits your needs so you’ll never be searching for your belongings.
  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: This feature is not standard, but it’s worth the upgrade. You’ll get two boxes built-in to your bed, and the best part is they are lockable, drainable, weather-proof, and brightly lit by LEDs.

The Silverado 1500 simply doesn’t offer such features.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Interior Features

The RAM 1500 and the Silverado 1500 both stay up-to-date with technology features such as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, but RAM offers a few more features that you won’t get with the Silverado:

  • Uconnect® 4C NAV: Safely make and receive phone calls with hands-free voice command. You’ll also enjoy a one-year SiriusXM™ All Access Package free trial, and you’ll never get lost thanks to 3D maps with Uconnect® Navigation.
  • 12-inch touchscreen: This available touchscreen is largest-in-class, and you can customize the home screen much like you would a smartphone.
  • Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System: This available 900-watt sound system is the most powerful in its class.

You might think pickup trucks are only meant to be tough and hard-working, but even if you buy used, you’ll never have to compromise on luxury when you’re driving around the Macomb area in the RAM 1500
