Looking for a pickup truck that will excel on your Nickerson worksite while offering great interior amenities for family road trips? Many love to compare the RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado, which is why we created this Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram side-by-side comparison. Find out how the RAM 1500 beats out the Chevy in performance, cargo management, and interior features!

RAM vs. Chevy: Performance and Capability

Which full-size pickup truck is more capable, the Silverado or RAM 1500? Both offer exceptional performance for Buhler drivers, but the RAM 1500 with its many trim levels gives drivers more performance-based options. Here are the base trim level engine specs:

RAM 1500

  • V6 engine that generates 305 hp
  • Maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds
  • Maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds

Chevy Silverado 1500

  • V6 engine that generates 285 hp
  • A maximum towing capacity of 13,400 pounds
  • A maximum payload capacity of 2,280 pounds

While the Silverado has an infinitesimal towing advantage, it sacrifices efficiency. Meanwhile, the RAM 1500 has a superb towing capacity when you consider its Best-in-Class V6 fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway. The Silverado also has 19 city mpg, but falls short on the highway at 22 mpg.
