Capability will always be a key factor within the pickup truck market, but shoppers nowadays expect much more than that from their haulers, including the latest automotive technology. Comparing the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a good place to start–take a closer look at performance, capability, cargo management, and technology in this RAM 1500 vs. Silverado 1500 matchup and decide whether the RAM or Silverado is right for your Gadsden jobs and Fort Payne adventures.
Both the RAM 1500 and the Silverado 1500 offer exceptional performance for Gadsden drivers, but when comparing the RAM vs. Silverado base trim levels there are some major differences:
What the RAM 1500 lacks in towing capacity it makes up for in base fuel economy by achieving the best-in-class standard V6 fuel economy. It can travel up to 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. While the base Silverado engine matches that 19 city mpg, it falls short on the highway at 22 mpg.
With similar cargo-hauling specs, it’s important to consider cargo management specs. The 2020 RAM 1500 is painstakingly versatile when it comes to organizing and transporting cargo in Huntsville, and shines in this area by offering innovative features:
The Chevy Silverado has no designated cargo management system like the RAM, but it comes with 12 cargo tie-downs and a soft tonneau cover, and it’s available with a tri-fold hard tonneau cover, cargo bed LED lighting.
Both the RAM 1500 and Silverado 1500 offer popular tech features, such as Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity, but the RAM takes its in-cabin experience to another level with two 12-volt DC power outlets and more:
The Chevy Silverado 1500 comes standard with one 12-volt DC power outlet, 6 speakers, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, and voice command. It is available with an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, satellite radio, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a Bose® Premium Sound System with 7-speakers and a subwoofer, and in-vehicle apps with additional memory.
