Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado: Cargo Bed

Both the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado offer practical solutions for trailering. The Chevy Silverado has a Durabed cargo bed with a Multi-Flex Tailgate that is available on all trims. It includes a Primary Gate Load Stop that extends to keep longer items from sliding out of the bed.

The Ram 1500, however, takes cargo bed adaptability a few steps further. In this truck, you'll have no problem getting all those grapes from the vineyard to the winery.

Its available multifunction tailgate has the ability to fold down vertically, but it's also constructed as a set of two swing-away doors with a 60/40 split. This tailgate accommodates trailering by allowing you to fully access the bed, even with a trailer in tow.

The available RamBox® Cargo Management System includes storage bins located on each side of the cargo bed. The bins are weatherproof, lockable, and have built-in drainage and lights. This system even comes with a 115-volt auxiliary outlet for any extra power you may need.



Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado: Interior

Cab options abound with both the Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado. Each truck has available Wi-Fi hotspots and under-seat storage along with significant legroom.

Passengers in the Ram 1500, however, will enjoy having a bit more room to stretch their legs, as the table below demonstrates. The Ram 1500 offers a maximum 45.2 inches of rear legroom along with available reclining rear seats. Legroom within the Chevy Silverado is slightly less at 43.4 inches.

Furthermore, an available center console in the Ram can charge up to five phones while your passengers sit back and enjoy the luscious Natura Plus leather seats. Passengers needing to charge their phones in the Chevy Silverado will simply have to wait their turn as that truck has only four charging ports.

Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado: Cabin Technology

A Heads-Up Display is available in both the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado. This projects information, like vehicle speed, active safety alerts, and navigation, onto your windshield, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road ahead.

Both trucks also offer an LCD touchscreen with access to all vehicle technology and media, though there is a difference for each, particularly when it comes to size

An available Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation in the Ram 1500 includes a customizable home screen and split-screen capability, along with pinch-and-zoom technology.

The largest available touchscreen for each truck is shown below:

  • Ram 1500 touchscreen size: 12 inches
  • Chevy Silverado touchscreen size: Eight inches

Furthermore, you can fully enjoy everything from your favorite rock band to iconic classical tunes in the Ram 1500 since it has an available 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System with 19 speakers. The available sound system for the Chevy Silverado comes with only seven speakers.
