Which One Ranks Supreme? The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Vs. The RAM 1500

Chevrolet Silverado 1500The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the RAM 1500 have long reigned supreme in the truck world. Both pickups offer so much year after year. While it’s clear that both of these trucks dominate the automotive landscape, which one is king? Let’s take a side by side look in a few key categories to decide.


Each truck has multiple engines to choose from. The RAM has a 3.6-Liter V6 and another 5.7-Liter V8 option. However, the Silverado 1500 has two 8-cylinder engines available. One has a 5.3-Liter and the other is a 6.2-Liter V8. Both of the Silverado’s engines provide more power and torque in comparison to the RAM options. While both pickups are comparable on gas mileage, they aren’t comparable when it comes to power and torque. 

Cabin Space

Both the new 2020 Chevy Silverado and the RAM 1500 provide plenty of room for drivers and passengers alike. Although, the Silverado gains an edge for taller drivers who need a little extra leg and headroom. Let’s be clear, both have plenty of room for drivers of any stature, but the Silverado does provide three inches of additional legroom as well as two inches of extra headroom. A nice bonus for the Chevrolet Silverado in comparison to the RAM.

Towing is an essential part of a truck’s value. Both trucks have an outstanding towing capacity. This category is a little tougher to decide on a clear favorite. Considering both trucks are capable of towing over 12,000 pounds, deciding which truck is right for you based on this alone is impossible.

At the end of the day, you have to say that the king of the truck world is the Silverado 1500. When stacked against each other, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 offers more to drivers than any other truck on the market. Plus, what’s more American than baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.
