Silverado 1500 vs. Ram 1500: Which Full-Size Pickup Truck Should You Buy?

The Silverado and the Ram 1500 are two of the top-selling full-size trucks on the market today, although neither tops our 2017 Best Full Size Truck for the Money, the Ford F-150. Reviewers were impressed with both trucks because of their power and efficiency, top-notch interior quality, and reasonable pricing.

Both the Silverado and Ram 1500 were refreshed in 2016. For 2017, Ram eliminated the six-speed automatic transmission and added some standard features to multiple trims, but otherwise the Ram 1500 is unchanged. The Silverado carries over from last year as well, though 2017 brings an increased maximum towing capacity and a newly standard Teen Driver safety system.
