Silverado vs. Ram 1500: Which Full-Size Pickup Truck Is Right for You?

The Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 are fierce rivals in the hotly contested field of full-size pickup trucks. The segment’s sales leader is the Ford F-150, but other entrants include the Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, and GMC Sierra (a near-twin of the Silverado). Still fresh from recent redesigns for the 2019 model year, the Silverado and Ram 1500 have no excuses when it comes to outshining their rivals – even the mighty F-150.

Among the dizzying options sheets for each of these vehicles, there is a model to suit the needs of nearly every truck buyer. There are multiple choices of bed length and cabin size, not to mention engines, gearboxes, and other hardware aimed at maximizing towing or payload capacity. Some truck buyers might want to spoil themselves with a little luxury, too. If that’s the case, the Chevy and Ram can deliver a level of cabin refinement that bests some luxury-badged cars. 

So, let’s jump into the details of each truck to see which offers the best blend of value, power, off-road capability, comfort, safety, and cargo space.
