Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado Performance and Towing

When it comes to full-size pickup trucks, performance is likely the most important topic on your wish list. Once you're behind the wheel of these trucks, it's easy to see which one reigns supreme.

The Ram 1500 comes with a capable standard V6 engine, which produces up to 305 horsepower. The available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine muscles in at 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the eTorque Mild Hybrid System, you'll also enjoy fuel-saving functionality. The Chevy Silverado has several different powertrain options, but the 285-horsepower V6 in the entry-level edition can't match up to the Ram 1500.

For drivers who are looking for towing capability out of their next truck, the Ram 1500, when properly equipped, is capable of towing up to 12,750 pounds with a max payload of 2,300 pounds. The Chevy Silverado can tow up to 12,500 pounds, making the Ram 1500 the stronger choice in the towing department.

Interior Features and Beds

With its standard push-button start, the Ram 1500 is always just one touch away from its next exciting drive. It also carries Bluetooth® wireless capability along with a 5-inch touchscreen that's intuitive and easy to use. When you upgrade the Uconnect® system, you'll have either an 8.4- or 12-inch touchscreen complete with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The Silverado maxes out at an 8-inch screen.

With the Ram 1500, you have the option of choosing between a 6-foot, 4-inch bed or a 5-foot, 7-inch bed, which depends on the cab setup. The RamBox® Cargo Management System can be added on for even more bed storage. With different bed length options available in the Chevy Silverado, too, both of these trucks have plenty of space for all of your important cargo.

Ram vs Chevy Safety Features

The Ram 1500 has over 100 standard and available safety features. It's a truck ready to protect you. With the all-new blind spot technology with rear cross path and trailer detection, it can sense how long an attached trailer is and let you know when the trailer is swaying. It'll also let you know if you're getting too close to other vehicles so you can make necessary driving adjustments.

When you put the Chevy Silverado in reverse, Rear Cross Path Detection can warn you of other vehicles that may be passing by when you're backing up. Both trucks come with a 360-degree camera, too. With cameras on the front, rear, and side mirrors, you'll know what's happening before making that next move.
