Which is the superior light-duty truck, the Silverado or RAM 1500? The Silverado is no slouch, with a popular set of engines and solid towing capabilities, but in all the ways that don’t show on a spec sheet, it simply can’t keep up with the RAM 1500.



On paper, the Silverado and RAM 1500 seem like equals— but the moment you step into a RAM’s cab, the difference is obvious. We’ll show you what mean in the head-to-head comparison below, but remember that our showroom is right down the street from Rogers, and you can get in touch with us whenever you’re ready to schedule a test drive!

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Performance & Capability

To start our RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado comparison, let’s jump into power and purpose. Trucks are meant to get serious work done, and both the RAM 1500 and Chevy Silverado are capable of more than most Coon Rapids drivers will ever need. That said, the RAM 1500 offers that power more affordably, with the least expensive RAM coming with a larger engine than what’s found in the top Silverado trim.

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Cargo Management

While both trucks are similar in terms of payload and towing capacities, the RAM 1500 is much better for Anoka drivers who prefer to keep their cargo organized, thanks to these systems:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: The secure, class-exclusive compartment houses two storage bins and was upgraded for 2020 and beyond to provide even more space for your equipment.
  • Multifunction Tailgate: The tailgate is engineered with two doors that swing open 88° for easier cargo access

RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500: Interior Features

What really sets the RAM 1500 apart is the incredible interior comfort, materials, and overall feel. It’s the most luxurious light-duty pickup on the market, and not by a small margin. Beyond old-fashioned comforts and modern materials, the RAM also offers tech like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity, and more:

  • Available Uconnect® 5C NAV: The advanced system includes a customizable home screen, dual-phone connectivity, and profiles for up to 5 users.
  • 12-inch touchscreen: The touchscreen is the largest in its class and includes pinch-and-zoom technology.
