|Engine||5.7L HEMI® VVT V8||5.3L EcoTec3 V8|
While both trucks have several engine options to choose from, we’ve singled out their 5L engines for this comparison. The 5.7L HEMI® VVT V8 engine (with the availability of added e-Torque) of the 1500 produces 395 horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque, while the Silverado 1500 has a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, which offers up 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet is a brand with many mouths to feed, across cars, SUVs and trucks, while Ram only has its heavy-duty trucks to worry about, fine-tuning them to the best in accomplishing your tough work tasks.
While both vehicles have excellent performance capabilities, the design and luxury of the 1500 is really where the Ram sets itself apart from the Chevrolet Silverado. The Silverado 1500 offers bigger and more versatile storage options but pales in comparison to the high-level technology and luxury from the Ram 1500. The Laramie Longhorn and Limited present the height of the Ram 1500, in both utility and luxury. Its Uconnect infotainment system is accessed through a 12-inch screen, giving you access to all of your connective features. Heated, leather seats and premium material finishes and accents inside highlight the luxury interior, while polished aluminum wheels and superior LED halogen lights to frame the gorgeous exterior. If you want a truck for the sake of a truck, the Silverado 1500 might seem fine, but the Ram 1500 steps things up a few notches with a truly luxury pickup option.
