Compare Ram 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Want to know which pickup truck is the choice in the Twin Ports area? The new Ram 1500, of course!

The reason why you notice the Ram 1500 is because of its all-new look that stands out at the worksite and at the boat launch. But did you know that it offers a lot of value for being one of the most advanced pickup trucks available today? The Ram 1500 offers more standard equipment and trim level options than its competitors. In fact, Ram introduced the new eTorque system, which adds more low-end grunt without sacrificing fuel economy.

Not everyone is convinced that the Ram 1500 is the best choice among full-sized, half-ton pickup trucks in the Twin Ports area. But we dare to compare with the Ram 1500’s competition. Let’s see how our 2019 Ram 1500 compared with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500:
