2020 RAM 1500 vs 2020 Chevrolet Silverado

Serving Commerce, GA

The 2020 RAM 1500 maintains a strong rivalry against the 2020 Chevy Silverado. These light-duty pickup trucks come with full-size cabins, 4x4 drive, long beds and other convenient amenities. However, the RAM model boasts better electronic technologies and other interior features.

Performance

The RAM 1500's 5.7 L engine block is marked with the iconic HEMI graphics. Generating a maximum of 395 horsepower, the V8 gasoline powertrain offers remarkable efficiency with assistance from the eTorque system. Cranking out 410 pound-feet of torque, the HEMI engine with the Mild Hybrid System tows a 12,750-pound trailer. Such fuel-saving technology also manages combustion in the 3.6 L Pentastar V6 engine, which is rated at 305 net hp. Wearing the EcoDiesel badge, the 3.0 L engine has a peak torque output of 480 lb-ft. Also powered by diesel fuel, the 2020 Silverado's Duramax can't generate more than 460 lb-ft. However, this Chevy pickup truck offers a lineup of three engines from the EcoTec3 family. Some of these signature gas engines are compatible with the Dynamic Fuel Management.

Technology

Taking strong design cues from modern tablets, the RAM 1500's Uconnect 12.0 NAV multimedia system has one of the largest touch screens in the light-duty pickup truck segment. SiriusXM 360L Satellite Radio also provides best-in-class entertainment for up to six occupants inside this light-duty pickup truck. In fact, the Active Noise Cancellation reduces external sound by nearly 58 decibels. Therefore, you won't miss a single beat from the 19 Harman Kardon speakers, which have stainless steel grilles for extra durability. The proprietary 900-watt sound system is surely better than the 2020 Chevy Silverado's seven-speaker audio that carries the Bose label. In terms of mobile connections, both light-duty pickup trucks have 4G Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, the full-size cabins come with three-prong charging outlets that deliver more than 110 peak volts for charging high-demand electronic devices.

Interior

Covering nearly 10 square feet, a panoramic sunroof is optional on the 2020 RAM 1500. This dual-pane sunroof makes a great combination with an automatic climate control system that heats or cools the entire cabin. Appointed with genuine leather, the power-adjustable front seats in this pickup truck come with heating. Conveniently located between the driver and front occupant, a large center console can be configured into several custom layouts. A 15.0-inch laptop computer can be stored inside the console, which also includes USB-C ports. You won't find as many convenient amenities inside the 2020 Silverado.
