Are you ready to take control of the roads in your next new pickup truck? Then, let’s look at two popular choices in the light-duty segment: the 2022 Ram 1500 and 2022 Chevy Silverado. Both are icons of their class, known for their ability to (figuratively, at least) move mountains.
We want to show Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, TX, drivers why these trucks draw so much attention in this comparison. Reach out to us at Dallas Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram when you’re ready to learn more!
The Ram and Chevy pickups offer cabin amenities worthy of the title if you’re looking for a truly luxurious truck. The Silverado looks sharp in 2-tone Jet Black and Umber leather. Meanwhile, your Ram 1500 Rebel trim takes adventurous tones with Black and Ruby Red interior colors.
Another valuable cabin feature in the Ram 1500? The available 12-inch Uconnect 5C® touchscreen. It sits in portrait mode and includes a split-screen view so that you can display your maps and audio info at the same time! The standard 8-inch diagonal touchscreen in the Silverado lacks the same modern capability.
When adventure calls and you need to hitch up that boat or camper trailer, the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado are more than game. Each can tow at least 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, so expect your excursion to go off without (or, actually, with) a hitch!
These pickups can be customized to meet the exact capacities you need with various engines to choose from. The Ram offers five engine options, including the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 and the 5.7L HEMI® V8 to a powerfully efficient 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. The Chevy also offers V8 and diesel powertrain options.
The Ram 1500 does have a slight payload advantage: It can haul up to 2,300 pounds. The max payload of the Chevy Silverado is a bit lower at 2,280 pounds.
The 2022 Ram 1500 is well known for its available multifunction tailgate. The 2022 Chevy Silverado has its own version, but the Ram 1500 gives you a little bit more.
How does it work? The 60/40 split swing-away doors open to 88 degrees. Close and latch them together, and they’ll swing down in unison like a traditional tailgate. However, when you swing them to the sides, you can access the truck bed directly—no more leaning over the tailgate!
Flanking both sides of the Ram 1500 truck are the available RamBox® Cargo Management System boxes. These lockable, weatherproof, and drainable storage boxes can be loaded with small gear—or filled with ice to chill drinks for the tailgate.
We hope Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, Texas, shoppers found this comparison useful! The 2022 Ram 1500 and 2022 Chevy Silverado have the brawn you need to complete the toughest tasks.
However, the Ram 1500 pickup stands out for its cabin luxury and versatile cargo bed features. If those appeal to you, schedule your test drive of this light-duty truck at Dallas DCJR. Get behind the wheel today!
