Ram 1500

If you’re looking for a truly luxury truck, the Ram and Chevy pickups offer cabin amenities worthy of the title.

Ram 1500
Opulent Truck Interiors

The Silverado 1500 High Country looks sharp in Jet Black or Nightshift Blue. Meanwhile, your Ram 1500 Big Horn® takes adventurous tones with options like Light Mountain Brown or Light Frost Beige.

Another valuable cabin feature in the Ram 1500? The available 12-inch Uconnect® touchscreen. It sits in portrait mode and includes a split-screen view, so you can display your maps and audio info at the same time!

Ram 1500

When adventure calls and you need to hitch up that boat or camper trailer, the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are more than game. Both can tow at least 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, so expect your excursion to go off without (or, actually, with) a hitch!

Towing Capacity Showdown

With various engines to choose from, these pickups can be customized to meet the exact capacities you need. The Ram has an engine for every driver from the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 and the 5.7L HEMI® V8 to a powerfully efficient 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. The Chevy also offers V8 and diesel powertrain options, but there are less of them to choose from.

The Ram 1500 does have a slight payload advantage: It can haul up to 2,300 pounds. The payload falls short in the Silverado pickup. For example, the ZR2 trim level only offers a payload of 1,440 pounds.

Ram 1500

The 2022 Ram 1500 is well-known for its available multifunction tailgate, making loading and unloading so convenient.

Your Pickup Bed: A Multifunction Tailgate

Since this feature is unique to the Ram pickup, there is no equivalent in the 2022 Chevy Silverado.

How does it work? The 60/40-split swing-away doors open to 88 degrees. Close and latch them together, and they’ll swing down in unison, like a traditional tailgate. However, when you swing them to the sides, you can access the truck bed directly—no more leaning over the tailgate!

Ram 1500
Additional Storage

Flanking both sides of the Ram 1500 truck is the available RamBox® Cargo Management System. These lockable weatherproof and drainable storage boxes can be loaded with small gear—or filled with ice to chill drinks for the tailgate.
