Silverado vs. Ram: Which Pickup Is Best for You?

Today’s pickup trucks appeal to a wider range of buyers than ever before. Thanks to four-door crew cabs that can seat up to six people, and deluxe interior upgrades, some worthy of a luxury car, modern pickups now tackle the daily commute, take kids to school and soccer matches, handle weekend trips to the home center, and even serve nicely for a night on the town.

With the demise of most V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive sedans, pickup trucks – and utility vehicles – have also taken over the recreational towing market. As a result, a full-size pickup truck is now the best-selling vehicle for each of the Detroit Three.

While the Ford F-Series is best-selling vehicle in the United States and the top-ranked pickup in the U.S. News rankings of these vehicles, buyers seeking a better ride or higher cabin quality will also want to look at the two runners-up in the pickup truck sales race, the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500.
