2017 Ram 1500 with optional features

When it comes to sorting out which pickup truck will work best for you and your needs, it can be a hassle to work through all of the numbers yourself. Between the payload, tow load, axles, and features, this is a tough decision. Let us at Sherman Dodge help simplify the process by presenting the 2017 Ram 1500 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 comparison for you to peruse. We’re going to break down what all of these numbers mean, instead of just tossing them your way to sort out. If you have any questions while reading through, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 855-511-6900 or via the chat function to the bottom, right-hand corner of your screen!

There’s a lot riding on that motivator under the hood, so let’s take a look there first. The Ram 1500 provides a commanding 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque for you to enjoy on every drive. It achieves a hefty 8,930-lb. towing capacity1 that gives you a lot of options for what you can take along, and it even tops that off with a 1,583-lb. payload capacity1 when you need to fill up the bed. The Chevy Silverado 1500 also is host to a V6 engine, one that pumps out a very competitive 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque. Despite these numbers being fairly similar, if reversed, to the Ram 1500, it falls short when it comes to towing. It maxes out at a 6,000-lb. conventional trailering capacity2, which leaves you more limited on what you can take along. On the other hand, it does provide a little bit more when it comes to hauling since it clocks in at a 1,960-lb. payload capacity2. Is the extra couple hundred pounds worth being that stunted when it comes to towing, though?

You’ll feel a similar limitation on the inside of the Silverado 1500, too. While it comes standard with the 40/20/40 split-bench seat, it lacks any sort of storage capability, an area the Ram 1500 covers as standard. You can’t even opt for it on the Silverado 1500! You’ll also notice a disparity in music quality, too, which you know is crucial if you do a lot of traveling. The standard 6 speakers inside of the Ram 1500 are strategically placed to best provide an immersive music experience for every drive while, in comparison, the Silverado’s meager 4 speakers will certainly be lacking something. And, while neither come standard with a CD player, the Ram 1500 gives you the option to have one, whereas the Silverado 1500 won’t allow you to add that basic amenity to the cabin — it’s simply not available.

We at Sherman Dodge know which pickup truck we’d choose after reading this 2017 Ram 1500 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 near Chicago, IL, comparison. Visit this clear winner at our location, 7601 N. Skokie Boulevard in Skokie, IL. The Ram 1500 is rarin’ and ready to strut its stuff, so swing by during any of business hours Monday through Saturday. We even have a phenomenal First-Time Buyers Program if you’re purchasing for the very first time! We hope to see you soon!
