Opulent Truck Interiors

If you’re looking for a true luxury truck, the Ram and Chevy pickups offer cabin amenities worthy of the title. The Silverado 1500 High Country looks sharp in two-tone Jet Black and Umber leather. Meanwhile, your Ram 1500 Big Horn® takes adventurous tones with Mountain Brown and Light Mountain Brown.

Tech at Your Fingertips

Another valuable cabin feature in the Ram 1500? The available 12-inch Uconnect® touchscreen. It sits in portrait mode and includes a split-screen view so that you can display your maps and audio info at the same time! The standard 8-inch diagonal touchscreen in the Silverado lacks the same modern capability.

Towing Capacity Showdown

When adventure calls and you need to hitch up that boat or camper trailer, the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are more than game. Both can tow at least 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, so expect your excursion to go off without (or, actually, with) a hitch!

Ram 1500
Powerful Performance

With various engines to choose from, these pickups can be customized to meet the exact capacities you need. The Ram has an engine for every driver from the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 and the 5.7L HEMI® V8 to a powerfully efficient 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. The Chevy also offers V6, V8, and diesel powertrain options.

The Ram 1500 does have a slight payload advantage: It can haul up to 2,300 pounds. The max payload of the Chevy Silverado is a bit lower at 2,280 pounds.

Your Pickup Bed: A Multifunction Tailgate

The 2020 Ram 1500 is well known for its available multifunction tailgate. Unique to the Ram pickup, this feature has no equivalent in the 2021 Chevy Silverado. It makes loading and unloading oh so convenient.

Ram 1500
More Access to Your Essentials

How does it work? The 60/40 split swing-away doors open to 88 degrees. Close and latch them together, and they’ll swing down in unison like a traditional tailgate. However, when you swing them to the sides, you can access the truck bed directly—no more leaning over the tailgate!

Flanking both sides of the Ram 1500 truck are the available RamBox® Cargo Management System boxes. These lockable, weatherproof, and drainable storage boxes can be loaded with small gear—or filled with ice to chill drinks for the tailgate.

Ram 1500 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500: The Verdict
We hope [LOCATION 1], [LOCATION 2], and [LOCATION 3] shoppers found this comparison useful! The 2021 Ram 1500 and 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 have the brawn you need to complete the toughest tasks.
However, the Ram pickup stands out for its cabin luxury and versatile cargo bed features. If those appeal to you, schedule your test drive of this light-duty truck at [DEALERSHIP NAME]. Get behind the wheel today!
