  • Silverado 1500: Equipped with a V6 engine that generates 285 hp, a maximum towing capacity of 13,400 pounds, and a maximum payload capacity of 2,280 pounds.

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.

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:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: The secure, class-exclusive compartment houses two storage bins and is upgraded for 2020 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
  • In-Floor Storage: The interior features class-exclusive, in-floor storage bins for even more precious cargo space.

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:
