2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

True capability. Standards, defied. The 2020 RAM 1500, a monster full-size truck with an eagerness to perform. And now with a few titles under its wheels — like the Consumer Guide® Best Buy for 2020* and Best Truck Brand of 2020 by U.S. News & World Report^ — the RAM 1500 earns the right to brag a little. It boasts a luxurious interior with a massive center touchscreen, cockpit-inspired cabin and plenty of convenience features that make your job that much easier. A versatile bed and an intimidating grille ensure that nothing will stand in your way of impressing the boss during the workweek and the pals during the weekend. The RAM 1500: the only truck that should be in your driveway.

As with any great, American-made truck, the RAM 1500 has a few competitors that like to spin dirt and make noise. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one that often rivals the RAM 1500, so let’s see how these two loudmouths compare below:

There’s a few reasons why the RAM won all those awards and not the Silverado. Sure, both offer all-wheel drive, fancy sunroofs and intuitive safety. But the RAM 1500 has the edge over its burly neighbor by offering its ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera as standard, not with an additional price tag attached. The sunroof on the RAM, too, is clearly the better choice since it’s a dual-pane panoramic, which means it spans back into second-row seating for a cabin that feels as open and expansive as the road ahead. Those available heated seats are nice in both vehicles, but wouldn’t it be nice to have rain-brake support? Like most features, it’s only available in the RAM 1500.
