2020 Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado

For anyone who is looking to up their truck game, we know that it can be difficult to figure out which truck is the best that the automotive industry has to offer. That is why we’re happy to be comparing two of the top models in the full-size pickup truck segment. We are starting with the 2020 Ram 1500, which steps things up in the 2020 model year with a few appearance group packages, and even the addition of the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that boasts a best-in-class torque rating. The other option we are spending time looking at is the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado. This trim features expanded towing technologies, an available 10-speed automatic transmission, and a new diesel engine option. Keep reading down below to find out which truck is the right fit for you.

2020 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

We can never overstate just how impressive the engine lineup is for the Ram 1500. The very first engine we’re looking at now is the 3.6-liter V6. This engine surprises with 305 horsepower, and even 269 pound-feet of torque. Those are great numbers for a standard engine, especially since you can either get 2WD or 4WD, depending on your needs. The new addition is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6, which can pump out a roaring 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. The very last engine we are checking out is a 5.7-liter V8, which you can expect to get around 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 horsepower from. All of those things not enough? Well, then the eight-speed automatic transmission should help sweeten the deal.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado Power & Handling

Chevy tries to keep up with everything that the Ram 1500 has to offer, and while the Silverado does come with many engines, we don’t like them as much as the Ram 1500’s lineup. These engines include a 4.3-liter V6, a turbocharged 2.7-liter 4-cylinder, a 5.3-liter V8, a turbocharged diesel 3.0-liter inline-6, and a 6.2-liter V8. While this is a lot of options, they aren’t as reliable, and in most cases, they can’t compare to the power given to you by the Ram 1500. The different transmissions include a six-speed automatic, an eight-speed automatic, and a ten-speed automatic.

2020 Ram 1500 Features & Design

Ram has always been known to be a hard hitter when it comes to trim level options and availability. Standard features, which can be found throughout the lineup, include power locks and windows, a 5-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 3, air conditioning, a rearview camera, and keyless entry. But that isn’t all! Throughout the rest of the Ram 1500’s lineup, you’ll find features like a fully dampened tailgate, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 20-inch aluminum wheels, a 9-speaker Alpine audio system, fog lights, heated and ventilated 12-way power front seats, blind-spot monitoring, an air suspension, remote starting, navigation, and genuine wood interior.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado Features & Design

For the trims offered with the Silverado, they’re lackluster. Standard features include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 17-inch steel wheels, and a tilt-only steering column adjustment. The rest of the trims will give you features like cruise control, front tow hooks, bed lighting, remote start, an upgraded driver information display, a trailer package, heated and power-adjustable side mirrors, leather upholstery, 20-inch chromed alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
