Pickup Truck Faceoff: Ram 1500 vs Chevrolet Silverado LT

If you are in the market for a light-duty luxurious work truck, you are probably comparing the Ram 1500 Big Horn and the Chevy Silverado LT. The Ram 1500 Big Horn comes this year with three new paint colors, additional features on the Night Edition, and an EcoDiesel engine. The Chevy Silverado LT adds new adaptive cruise control and advanced trailering system option. Read on to learn more and to see whether the new RAM 1500 Big Horn or the 2020 Chevy Silverado truck comes out on top!

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Power & Handling

The Ram 1500 is upping its engine game with its new hybrid capability. The eTorque mild-hybrid system works with an almost imperceptible engine restart and smooth halt at stoplights.

Engine choices this year range from a 3.6L gasoline V6, a 5.7L HEMI V8, both with eTorque or a standard 5.7L HEMI.

Diesel fans can take advantage of the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 which is the RAM 1500's mileage leader at 26 mpg combined.

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Power & Handling

The Chevy Silverado offers three engine options paired with either an eight-speed automatic or a ten-speed automatic.

Engines include a 2.7L Turbo engine paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine with DFM also paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, and a 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6 engine that uses a 10-speed automatic transmission. These engines can be rough to transition, making the ride less smooth when compared to competitors.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Features & Design

The 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn comes with a spacious interior and all sorts of new technology with its opitonal 12-inch touchscreen.

The interior also utilizes multiple storage options so that you can put every inch of your truck to good use.

Some of the best features of the new RAM 1500 Big Horn would be the new multifunction tailgate, RamBox cargo management system, and the relocatable anchor points.

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Features & Design

The 2020 Chevy Silverado LT comes standard with LED headlights, a tailgate damper, and an 8-inch touchscreen.

There are also a bunch of packages, as well as stand-alone options such as trailer monitoring systems, navigation systems, exterior upgrades, extra safety technology, and more.

Overall though, the cabin design of the Chevy Silverado feels outdated, and some of the material quality is lackluster.

Conclusion:

While comparing the storage, cabin space, driving smoothness, luxury features, and capability, it is clear to say that the Ram 1500 Big Horn comes out on top! The Silverado can't hold a candle to all that the RAM 1500 has to offer. Are you in the Clermont area and in search of a new pickup?
