2022 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado – Power and Performance

Which truck is better equipped to take on the tough jobs, the Silverado or RAM 1500? The V8 base engine under the hood of the Ram cranks out a lot more horsepower and torque than the Chevy Silverado. Here are the specs:

2022 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado – Ventilated Seats

We’re blessed with moderate winters in the greater McAllen area, but summers can be brutal. That’s why it’s nice to have ventilated seats to help cool off. The Ram 1500 comes standard with both ventilated and heated seats. But they aren’t available in the Chevy Silverado.

There are no more useful features to put on a truck than the RAM Multifunction Tailgate and the RAMBOX Cargo Management system. You can store your tools or your cold drinks in big storage compartments built right into the side of the truck box, thanks to the RAMBOX cargo management system. The Multifunction Tailgate can open down, to the side, or down the middle. These two features belong in every pickup, but are only found in RAM trucks.
