2015 Ram 1500 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado
It’s no surprise that Regina and Moose Jaw customers prefer the 2015 Ram 1500 to the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado. The Ram 1500 is the longest-running pickup line in Canada and has the highest level of brand loyalty among full-size trucks. The 2015 model has pushed that reputation even further by offering a stunning combination of efficiency, power, and work-ready capability.
Any truck driver around Moose Jaw will tell you that a large model needs intelligently organized storage space in order to work as effectively as possible. The class-exclusive RamBox makes good on that need.
A multi-faceted storage system designed to help Regina, SK drivers customize and organize their carrying space, the RamBox features:
- Two large and easily drainable illuminated storage compartments — one on either side of the cargo bed.
- An extender/divider that allows you to extend the usable length of the bed and adapt to different sizes and shapes of cargo.
Drivers of the 2015 Ram 1500 can take full advantage of the RamBox, but it’s not available with the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
Both the 2015 Ram 1500 and the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado boast phenomenal levels of power, but only the former is able to ensure that that power doesn’t come at the price of efficiency.
The new Ram 1500 can be fitted with a class-exclusive, cutting-edge 3.L EcoDiesel V6, which is capable of attaining 11.6 L/100 km in the city and 8.4 L/100 km on the highway while still supplying drivers with 420 lb-ft of torque.
The most efficient engine provided for the Silverado is the lackluster EcoTec3 4.3L V6. Capable of 13.4 L/100 km in the city and 9.9 on the highway, it doesn’t just get outclassed in terms of efficiency, but also offers far less performance, with an output equal to only 305 lb-ft of torque.
Facts and figures might be enough to convince drivers that a normal vehicle will deliver acceptable performance, but trucks are working vehicles, and real-world testing is what counts.
Luckily, Motor Trend has already done the hard work. They put the 2015 Ram 1500, 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, and 2015 Ford F-150 through a rigorous 418-km drive through California and Arizona, testing them along the way for acceleration, braking, grip, towing, payload, and fuel economy. The 2015 Ram 1500 won out, and was named Motor Trend’s 2015 Half-Ton Shootout Winner.
