Light-duty trucks enjoy exceptional popularity with drivers near Gretna and New Orleans, and if you’re comparing the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado, you’re well on your way to a more engaging, more satisfying ride!

2020 Silverado or RAM 1500: Performance and Capability

  • Starting Engines: Both the RAM 1500 and the Silverado 1500 come equipped with a V6 engine, but where the RAM offers 305 hp as standard, the Silverado offers just 285 hp.
  • Towing and Payload: Although the Silverado manages a maximum towing capacity of 13,400 pounds, the RAM 1500 isn’t far behind. It can tow up to 12,750 pounds, and it even has a slight advantage in maximum payload capacity.
  • Fuel Economy: The RAM 1500 offers best-in-class standard V6 fuel economy, with up to 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. The Silverado comes close with identical city specs, but loses out on the highway with just 22 mpg. Check out our full guide to the RAM 1500 fuel economy to learn more.

2020 Silverado or RAM 1500: Cargo Management

You won’t hear it often in the world of light-duty pickups, but we aren’t afraid to say it: Raw power isn’t everything.

The difference between the RAM 1500 towing capacity and the Chevy Silverado 1500 towing capacity may only matter once or twice a year — if that. The RAM makes every day easier with smartly-designed and innovative cargo storage features:

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: This secure, class-exclusive storage space is accessible from the side of your truck bed, so it’s always easy to reach. Two lockable storage bins have space for everything you need on-hand.
  • Multifunction Tailgate: Most pickup trucks require you to fold down the tailgate in order to access the truck bed. The result: You have to lean over the gate and stretch to reach anything that’s on the inside! With the RAM 1500, you’ll receive a tailgate that can open just like a car door, swinging out up to 88°.
  • In-Floor Cargo Storage: For everything you’d like to keep out of view or inside the cabin, the RAM 1500 offers class-exclusive, in-floor cargo storage bins. That means you’ll always have what you need for your Marrero adventures!

2020 Silverado or RAM 1500: Interior Features

With either pickup, you’ll receive features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto as standard. However, the RAM 1500 cabin is notoriously luxurious, and what’s more, it offers features you simply can’t get in a Silverado:

  • Uconnect® 4C NAV: Take control of all your favorite features using the UConnect®  driver interface. With touch functions, hard keys, and available full-screen navigation, there won’t be any challenge that you can’t take on.
  • 12-inch touchscreen: Although it comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, the RAM 1500 also offers a 12.0-inch touchscreen with pinch-and-zoom capability! It’s the only vehicle in its class to do so.
  • Harman/Kardon® Premium Audio System: For a superior entertainment experience, choose a RAM 1500 with a 900-watt premium sound system. With 19-speakers, it’s the most potent setup you’ll find in the class.
