Compare The 2017 Ram 1500 vs The Chevy Silverado 1500

Rivalling Rides -- How the 2017 Ram 1500 Competes with Light-Duty Pickups

If you prefer a bit of refinement to go with the ruggedness of your work truck, we suggest giving the Ram 1500 some serious consideration. The Ram 1500 complements its substantial hauling and towing capabilities with clever storage solutions, a premium interior, and a value-packed design. A well-rounded design makes the Ram 1500 an ideal daily driver and allows it to stand out from the less comprehensive designs of its competitors, like the Chevy Silverado 1500.

Curious as to why the Ram 1500 is so popular among Jackson, Griffin, McDonough, Covington, Monticello, Macon and Atlanta area drivers? You can explore the details of its superior design via the comparison below:

Compare Ram 1500 vs Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Pickup trucks are all about customization, so it makes sense to invest in the Ram 1500 that offers a more affordable starting price than the Chevy Silverado.
  • And speaking of customization, the Ram 1500 is easy to personalize with a generous 11 trims. These are distinct variants that appeal to a wide range of drivers, including a no-nonsense Tradesman work truck and a posh Limited lux truck. The Silverado's narrower lineup just can't compete.
  • The Ram 1500 benefits from an optional self-leveling air suspension, which refines performance to make for a smoother, more comfortable ride -- something the Silverado doesn't offer.
  • Invest in the standard Ram 1500 powertrain, and its base V6 engine will still generate more power than the standard Silverado setup.
  • The power and precision of the Ram 1500's performance is balanced by a smart, smooth-shifting, eight-speed automatic transmission, which the Silverado doesn't offer.
  • You get a choice of four-wheel-drive (4WD) systems with the Ram, including a traditional manual part-time system and one that switches automatically. There is only one 4WD system available with the Silverado.
  • The Ram 1500's available EcoDiesel engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6, which earns class-leading fuel economy. Overall, the Silverado is less efficient than the Ram 1500, and it doesn't offer a diesel engine option.
