You put in long days of hard work throughout Collierville, Memphis, and Germantown. You want a truck whose hard-working capabilities can match yours. However, with so many promising options out there, how can you choose the right pickup for the job?
Well, comparing your options is a good place to start, and the team here at Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here to assist. Today, we’re exploring two tough trucks, the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado.
To learn about these vehicles and see which comes out on top, keep reading the sections below!

While both the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado offer some compelling engines, only one can take the cake.
On the outside, the Chevy Silverado may seem promising with its 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine, but even though this engine is slightly larger than the 1500’s standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6, it still lacks in several important areas. Check the chart below to see how their base trims stack up:
|Engine||3.6L Pentastar® V6||4.3L EcoTec3 V6|
|Transmission||TorqueFlite® 8-Speed Automatic||6-Speed Automatic|
|MPG (city/highway)||20/25 MPG||15/20 MPG|
As you can see here, the Ram 1500 outdoes the Chevy Silverado in almost every performance category, like with its 20-point horsepower increase, which provides superior drivability. Ram’s added fuel efficiency is a big advantage, too, allowing drivers to take longer trips without the need to stop and refuel. Basically, when it comes to engine mechanics, the Silverado just can’t keep up.

Trucks are great for longer drives, and perhaps nothing is more essential for these lengthy trips than a spacious and comfortable interior cabin. Luckily, the Ram 1500 has got you covered.
Let’s start with Ram’s roomy interior dimensions, which include:
With these measurements, the whole crew will have plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Will Silverado owners have this same luxury?
It doesn’t look like it. Up front, driver and passenger only get 61.18 inches of hip room. As for those in the back, they’ll have to settle with 43.4 inches of rear legroom, 65.16 inches of rear shoulder room, and 60.24 inches of rear hip room.
In today’s modern world, technology is everywhere you look. Now, thanks to the innovations of the Ram 1500, it’s also inside of your truck.
At the center of Ram’s infotainment system is the optional Uconnect® 12.0 NAV on an outstanding 12-inch touchscreen display that includes split-screen capability. Chevy offers navigation features on its available touchscreen display, too, but since its optional display is only eight inches, directions won’t be as easy to read.
That’s not all. The 1500 also features high audio upgrade possibilities, like its optional Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System, featuring 19 speakers and 900 watts of power. Sadly, the Silverado’s available Bose® Premium Sound System only comes with seven speakers.
Now that you’re familiar with both the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado, it’s time to choose.
Based on the specs and features mentioned above, we think that choice should be the Ram 1500. If you agree, stop by Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to take the Ram 1500 for a test drive around Collierville, Memphis, and Germantown today!
We hope to see you soon!
