If you are shopping for a new pickup, there are lots of options available to you, including an array of full-size models. However, two full-size trucks stand out from the competition: The Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado 1500. When the time comes to buy or lease a new truck, there's a good chance you'll have these pickups on your radar. But which is the right truck for you?
The team here at Musson-Patout CDJR near Broussard, LA, believes that the way to select between two vehicles is to look at their specifications and analyze how they stack up against each other. You can then plan a tour and test drive to get a closer look at your preferred pickup's features and characteristics. With this in mind, we have compiled the following comparison review, which we hope will guide you toward making the right purchase decision.
Both the 2020 Ram 1500 and 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are built with capability and safety in mind. These two full-size trucks for sale are loaded with features aimed to protect you and your crew, including anti-lock brakes, rearview cameras and daytime running lights. However, when you are deciding between these two burly pickups, it is worth noting that the new Ram 1500 provides several driver aids and safety systems that are either not standard or not even available on the Chevy equivalent. When you want to drive a modern new truck that offers rear automatic braking technology and a rear cross-path warning system, the 2020 Ram 1500 is a great choice!
When it comes to important metrics for truck buyers like towing capacity, the 2020 Ram 1500 also comes out on top of Chevy's 2020 Silverado 1500. The Silverado's standard towing capacity of 5,500 pounds gives you ample capability for many towing duties. However, it is still quite a bit lower than the 6,280-pound capacity on offer in the Ram.
If you plan on using your new truck to pull a trailer and you're looking for an impressive standard tow rating, the 2020 Ram 1500 is the pickup for you. Even if you don't have any touch towing jobs in mind, you never know what could come up next, so it's best to be prepared with a truck like the new Ram 1500!
Let's take a look at a quick overview of some of the other differences between the 2020 Ram 1500 and the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500:
