2020 Silverado or RAM 1500: Performance and Capability

  • Starting Engines: You can expect a standard V6 engine in both the RAM 1500 and Silverado 1500. However, the RAM leaves the Silverado in the dust by offering 305 hp standard as compared to the Chevy’s 285 hp offering.
  • Towing and Payload: The Silverado offers a max towing capacity of 13,400 pounds slightly edging out the RAM, which offers a 12,750-pound max towing capacity. For most light-duty truck owners, this difference won’t matter much and the RAM even has the advantage when it comes to the important payload specs.
  • Fuel Economy: When you cruise through Cedar Park in a new RAM 1500 you can enjoy the best-in-class standard V6 fuel economy, with up to 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. The Silverado offers an identical city fuel economy but falls behind on the highway, only offering a 22 mpg rating.

2020 Silverado or RAM 1500: Cargo Management

When comparing the storage options of the RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado, it’s not even close. Stay neat and organized in a RAM work truck with innovative cargo features like:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: The RAM 1500 features two lockable storage bins that can be easily accessed from the side of the truck bed. This trail-blazing feature is a class-exclusive storage option.
  • Multifunction Tailgate: The unique tailgate on the RAM 1500 can swing open like a standard car door, allowing you to access your truck bed with ease.
  • In-Floor Cargo Storage: The class-exclusive in-floor cargo storage bins found in the RAM 1500 offer a great solution for storing items that are crucial, but might not be needed every day. Visit our parts department if you are looking for accessories to customize your ride.
