The 2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado: Which is Better?

Comparing trucks often comes down to raw numbers. From a glance under the hood, you’ll notice the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 boasts the larger engine of the two. However, at higher engine speeds, the 2020 RAM 1500 packs more punch with 305 maximum horsepower.

Furthermore, the RAM 1500 delivers superior fuel economy over the Silverado 1500, largely thanks to its innovative 8-speed automatic transmission featuring an eTorque Mild Hybrid System. Although the difference only amounts to two miles per gallon, the savings pile up the more you drive the 2020 RAM 1500 instead of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. 

Opt for the diesel powertrains in both models and the RAM 1500 once again surpasses its Chevrolet counterpart with 12,560 lbs. of maximum towing capacity. 

All in all, the 2020 RAM 1500 offers drivers better performance across the board. Unlike the Silverado 1500, the RAM 1500 also offers keyless start as a standard feature as well as the class-exclusive RAMBox® Cargo Management System and Multifunction Tailgate, both of which substantially elevate your truck bed’s utility.
