2021 Ram 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado

If you have a big job that needs to be done, you’re going to need a powerful truck to match. While there are several makes and models out there to choose from, for us here at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Kingwood, there are only two that you need to consider. The Ram 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado are two legendary pickups with powerful engine options, sizeable towing capacity numbers, and advanced technology features. While either of these two trucks would make great additions to your driveway, only one has the edge. For the answer as to which one our staff thinks you should be driving home, continue reading!

2021 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

There are four powerful engines available for the 2021 Ram 1500. The first is the standard 3.6-liter V6 that kicks out an impressive 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with the fabulous eTorque system, which improves the pickup’s fuel economy and the engine stop/start smoothness. One optional engine is the 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is available with our without the eTorque. Need some diesel power? The Ram has you covered with a diesel-powered and turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 260 horsepower and a massive 480 lb-ft of torque. New this year to the Ram trim lineup is the TRX, and it comes with a turbocharged 6.2-liter V8 that rips up the track with 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. All engines pair with a smooth-sailing eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive with the option for four-wheel-drive.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Power & Handling

There are a couple of engine options available for the Chevrolet Silverado, and each provides drivers with a decent amount of power. The lineup starts with a 4.3-liter V6 that delivers 285 horsepower and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. Optional is an 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque and gets an eight-speed automatic transmission or a 5.3.-liter V8 that has 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado also has a diesel option: a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel with 277 horsepower and a decent 460 lb-ft of torque. These power numbers are perfectly fine but do pale in comparison to what the Ram 1500 offers drivers.

2021 Ram 1500 Features & Design

There are seven trim levels available for the Ram 1500, and each one comes with a ton of standard tech and luxury equipment. Starting things off is the Tradesman trim with 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, trailer sway damping, and a 5-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker stereo. Adding to this is the Big Horn, which has either an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Want to head deep into the wilderness? Go with the Rebel trim as it comes with several impressive off-road features such as hill descent control, four underbody skid plates, an electronic locking rear axle, upgraded shocks, and all-terrain tires. If luxury is what you crave, that’s where the higher trims come in! All higher trims of the Ram 1500 come with leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, side steps, reclining heated rear seats, four-corner air suspension, wireless charging pad, and premium leather bucket seats. The all-new TRX trim rounds things out with more performance-enhanced features such as a head-up display, reverse steering control, and RamBox cargo storage.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Features & Design

Eight trims are available for the Silverado, so you do get some interesting features on each. The base trim is the Work Truck, which comes with 17-inch steel wheels, a locking tailgate, vinyl seat upholstery, air conditioning, and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Following this is the Custom, which adds an updated appearance and remote engine start, LED cargo bed lighting, power and heated mirrors, Wi-Fi capability, and power-locking with a power-releasing tailgate with assisted lift. Finally, the Custom Trail Boss has the most off-road features as you get four-wheel-drive, 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, and an automatic locking rear differential. Higher trims of the Silverado are geared toward luxury, including dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, wireless phone charger, an 8-inch touchscreen, and a Bose audio system.

Conclusion:

We can say good things about both of these pickups, but we will give the victory to the 2021 Ram 1500. The Ram comes with more powerful engines, tons of tech, and luxury equipment, and it’s better for off-roading! Are you ready to get behind the wheel of the Ram 1500?
