Review the Differences Between the Ram 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado


They might both include the number 1500 in their names, but that's where similarities end between the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado 1500. When it comes to engine power, towing capability and technology and comfort, nothing comes close to competing with the flagship Ram truck. Let's take a look at why the Ram 1500 you'll find here at Brandon Dodge on Broadway in Littleton, CO and the surrounding areas defeats the competition in all aspects.

Ram 1500 vs Silverado 1500 - Engine Comparison

With the Ram 1500, you get plenty of engine options, all offering clear benefits over the Silverado 1500. The award-winning Pentastar V6 comes standard, but you can also upgrade to a potent 5.7-liter HEMI V8, or the highly efficient 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, which provides even greater benefits that you'll learn more about below. These configurations led to the Ram 1500 earning the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award two years in a row, and analysts are predicting the Ram truck will outsell the Chevy model for the next several years.

Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado 1500 - Fuel Economy

As we mentioned earlier, the available EcoDiesel V6 in the Ram 1500 dominates the class in terms of fuel economy. This engine option is rated to provide an astonishing four extra miles per gallon on the highway compared to the Chevy truck. And the standard 3.6-liter V6 is more efficient than the standard 4.3-liter V6 in the Silverado 1500. If you're looking for a new level of fuel economy without sacrificing on power, the Ram 1500 is the clear choice.

Ram 1500 vs Silverado 1500 - Technology

A truck nowadays is much more than just a way to get the job done and provide you with a powerful ride. Inside the comfortable cabin of the Ram 1500 is a suite of amazing tech features. To boost your drive and fuel economy, the Ram truck offers a rotary transmission gear selector, active grille shutters and a four-corner air suspension that improves aerodynamics. And the infotainment features in the Ram truck feature a larger touchscreen than that found in the Silverado. We must say, the exclusive features found in the Ram 1500 greatly outweigh those in the Chevy truck.

We can go on all day about what makes the Ram 1500 the obvious choice, but instead we'd rather take you out for a test drive when you visit us at 5600 S Broadway, Littleton, CO so you can see what we're talking about.
