2017 Ram 2500 vs 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD in Skokie, IL

2017 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn with optional features

If someone said you had to pick the right pickup truck to accommodate your needs right now, what would you say? We at Sherman Dodge know what we’d say, but we’ve been in this business a long time and know the ins and outs of how to pair the perfect workhorse and driver for a complimentary marriage that will endure for a long time. That being said, we’re happy to help you make the decision, too! We’ve found that the best way to accomplish that is to put two pickups, head-to-head, and see which one provides the most utility and convenience, so today we’re going to look at the 2017 Ram 2500 and the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

When you’re hauling or towing across the state, you need a certain level of comfort and convenience so that the ride doesn’t feel interminable. That means a decent audio system, at the very least. The Chevy Silverado 2500HD provides the bare minimum on its standard iteration, equipping its cabin with only four speakers and vinyl upholstery. The Ram 2500 provides a bit more for you to enjoy, upping the ante with six speakers in its standard cabin, as well as the option to choose vinyl or cloth upholstery at no additional charge. The Ram 2500 also equips the cabin with Bluetooth® phone and audio1 on the second trim level to assure a safe and connected ride, whereas to acquire the same feature on the Silverado 2500HD you’ll have to pay extra or opt for a much higher trim level.

When it comes down to it, the cabin is important, but it’s not of the utmost. It’s easy to craft the perfect interior, but you can’t change the structure or powerhouse of a pickup truck beyond its lineup — and that’s often what really matters the most. The Ram 2500 comes standard with a powerful 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine that pumps out 383 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque for you to put to work on whatever your latest job entails. It has a standard 11,890-lb. towing capacity2, which is a sizeable number on its own, but it can be increased to a whopping 17,890-lb. towing capacity2 when hooked up with a 5th Wheel or Gooseneck Towing Prep Group! The Silverado 2500HD, on the other hand, offers a 6-liter, 360 horsepower, and 380 lb.-ft. of torque motivator, which falls below what the Ram 2500 offers. We’ve learned that numbers aren’t always everything, but, in this case, they tell a pretty accurate tale. The Silverado 2500HD maxes out at a 14,300-lb. towing capacity3 — and that requires an upgraded 4.10 axle and a 5th wheel.

At Sherman Dodge, we knew how this comparison between the 2017 Ram 2500 vs the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD in Skokie, IL, was going to end — with the Ram 2500 on top. Visit us to see this powerful pickup truck in action today! We’re open Monday to Saturday and our knowledgeable staff are always happy to help!
