Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ram 1500

  • Towing capacity and utility. Currently in its fourth generation, the new Chevy Silverado 1500 has a recently revamped towing capacity and utility rating that places it above the Ram 1500 in terms of power. Drivers can look forward to 13,300 pounds of towing ability with our Chevy truck, and less than 10,000 pounds for the Ram.
  • Passenger space. Riding in the Chevy Silverado 1500 is more comfortable for you and your front seat passenger than it is in the Ram 1500 as well, thanks to four inches of extra legroom in the front of the Silverado 1500, and more headroom all around, regardless of whether you're in the front or backseat.
  • No regular cab option. If you're the type of driver who doesn't require a backseat, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is the only truck in this comparison for you. It has a traditional, two-door regular cab style in its list of options, while the Ram is only available with a backseat.
  • More standard tech features. Sought-after tech amenities, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, come standard with every new Silverado 1500, as well as a long list of other great features. However, the Ram 1500 has fewer standard features, and, in fact, you won't get smartphone integration until you move up at least four trims for the Ram model.

Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150

  • No diesel engine. Love the power and efficiency of a diesel powertrain? The Silverado 1500 has you covered, with an optional six-cylinder diesel that produces 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The Ford F-150 is no longer available with a diesel engine.
  • Wider availability of tech features. Where both pickups offer similar rosters of standard features, the Silverado 1500 makes many additional, popular features more widely available than the Ford. For example, you can Wi-Fi capability and a remote engine start system as soon as the second Silverado trim level, but not until much higher up in the Ford lineup.
  • Front seat comfort and space. Once again, when it comes to your comfort in the front seat, the Chevy Silverado 1500 comes out ahead, with more headroom and legroom than the competing truck.
  • Greater ground clearance. Traversing in varying weather and road conditions or hitting dirt roads in Utica or Whitesboro is no problem with the Chevy Silverado 1500, which has a higher ground clearance and, therefore, a smoother ride than the Ford F-150.
