Light-duty pickup trucks are always a favorite in the Frankfort area. In fact, you can hardly drive through New Lenox without seeing a Silverado or RAM 1500 on the roads — or off-road, for that matter! But if you’re trying to decide between the two, which should you choose? Explore the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 below!

Silverado or RAM 1500: Performance

Between the Ram 1500 vs Chevrolet Silverado, you’ll find two powerhouses with different advantages. The Silverado has its benefits, but overall, we think the RAM 1500 really shines for Mokena drivers:

  • Base Engine: The two may have similar V6 base engines, but the RAM 1500 delivers 305 hp compared to just 285 hp for the Silverado.
  • Towing and Payload: The two are evenly matched when it comes to towing capacity, with a slight edge for the Silverado. However, the RAM 1500 has the advantage when it comes to payload capacity.
  • Fuel Economy: The RAM 1500 has a best-in-class standard V6 fuel economy with up to 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway, while the Silverado falls a little short with its lesser highway mileage.

Silverado or Ram 1500: Cargo

Power may be important, but practicality is also essential and the RAM 1500 has a number of exclusive features that make your life a lot easier on the road:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: Two lockable storage bins sit at the side of your truck bed, so everything you need is easily accessible and secure.
  • Multifunction Tailgate: This smart design allows you to fold down your tailgate in the traditional way, but you can also swing the tailgate open like a car door for even greater convenience.
  • In-Floor Cargo Storage: Keep your valuables out of sight with the in-floor cargo storage bins, located right inside the cabin of your RAM 1500.

Silverado or Ram 1500: Features

Sure, both models include standard technology like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. But the RAM 1500 has a few tricks up its sleeve:

  • Uconnect® 4C NAV: Featuring touchscreen navigation and available full-screen navigation, RAM’s UConnect® system is easy-to-use and ready to go!
  • 12-inch touchscreen: Between the standard 8.4-inch touchscreen and 12-inch option, flipping through everything from directions to emails is clearer than ever before.
  • Harman/Kardon® Premium Audio System: Music fans will adore this available state-of-the-art system with 19 speakers blasting well-balanced, crystal-clear sound.
