If you’re looking for a full-size pickup truck, you have some things to consider. Especially if it’s between a 2017 Chevy Silverado vs 2017 Ram 1500 in Cincinnati, OH. You can basically count the F-150 out, thanks to its flimsy aluminum body and truck bed. The Silverado and Ram 1500 are both made primarily of high-strength steel though, so it seems a close call in terms of durability. However, after taking a closer look, the Silverado takes the cake thanks to its steel being roll-formed in the truck bed. Not stamped like the Ram 1500. Performance is a no-brainer, with each of the Silverado’s three engines getting a best-in-class rating of some sort, locking down that specific category in the full-size truck segment. Finally, technology is also important. However, most truck buyers aren’t looking for entertainment technology like mid-size sedan owners. They’re looking for practical tech to help them through their day-to-day lives. Chevy’s got you covered in that category, too.
The Silverado might cost $1,000 more than the Ram 1500. But even just a quick glance at the comparison chart shows it’s worth it.
