2020 Ram 1500 vs 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 - Vidalia, GA Model Comparison

Which is better, the new 2020 Ram 1500 or the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500? They're both sturdy, American trucks from long-standing, respected brands. But one has to come out on top. 

Keep reading for our analysis to see who dominates and who takes second place, and if you still have questions, the Woody Folsom CDJR of Vidalia team is here to answer them.

Standard Performance: 2020 Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado 1500

From the factory, the 2020 Silverado and Ram 1500 both come equipped with V6 engines. The 2020 Chevy Silverado comes with a 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine that is paired with a 6-Speed automatic transmission. Together, this pairing produces an admirable 285 HP and 17 MPG combined fuel economy. 

However, here, the 2020 Ram 1500 outshines the Silverado. The Ram comes with a 3.6L V6 engine with a TorqueFlite 8-Speed Automatic transmission that produces up to 305 HP. As an added bonus, the Ram 1500 delivers Best-in-Class standard V6 fuel economy of 19/24 city/highway MPG.

Full-Size Interior: 2020 Chevy Silverado vs 2020 Ram 1500

Just because you need a truck to do the heavy lifting doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy some comfort on the inside. And when it comes to the best interior, the Ram 1500 is in a class of its own - offering a range of features that are simply not available on the Silverado, such as a massive 12-inch touchscreen display. This innovative tech features easy-to-use, pinch-and-zoom capability (just like your smartphone) and is the only vehicle in its class to do so. 

At the same time, the Ram 1500 offers Uconnect 4C NAV that empowers you to easily control your favorite functions on the seamless driver interface. The interior is accented by hard keys, touch functions, and available full screen navigation, which makes the toughest of challenges just a swipe away. And the available Harman/Kardon Premium Audio System delivers the perfect sound for your favorite tunes, with 19 speakers and up to 900 watts of premium audio.

Ram Trucks Have the Innovation You Need for Your Cargo Loads

The main reason you buy a pickup is for the hauling, loading, and towing. And with an exclusive Multifunction Tailgate on the Ram 1500, the Silverado just can't compete here. The majority of trucks require you to fold your tailgate down to access the bed, which means you need to stretch to get anything in the tailgate. The Multifunction Tailgate overcomes this common problem with an innovative opening.   


Plus, the RAMBox Cargo Management system is a class-exclusive, secure storage space conveniently located on the side of your tailgate, which means it's exceptionally easy to reach. It also features two lockable storage spaces. Need even more space? The Ram 1500 also offers class-exclusive In-Floor Cargo Storage. This system allows you to safely keep your belongings tucked away, out of view, and gives you more space for everything else.
