2020 Ram 2500 vs 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

2020 Ram 2500 vs 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

In the year 2020, both the Ram 2500 and the Chevrolet Silverado HD find themselves locked in a battle to see who gets to take on the pickup truck giant that is Ford. The entire Ram name has used the last few years to rise out of obscurity and challenge the norms of pickup truck royalty, and that meant upsetting Chevrolet and its place as a leader in trucks.

Naturally, this makes them fierce competitors. It’s a good thing then that they have different ideas of how to build a heavy-duty truck so shoppers can easily see which is the best truck for their needs. Those without a discerning taste for trucks might find the competition tighter than others with higher expectations, which is why the chart below shows some of the differences that make each pickup unique.

Comparison Analysis

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD has its own advantages, especially around towing, but that strength is also a bit of a weakness. The Ram 2500, by comparison, is made to perform a wider variety of tasks. While the Silverado HD may focus on pulling loads, the Ram 2500 puts lots of effort into cargo management, customization, and cabin materials and design. With the popular trend of the pickup truck as a vanity purchase, even at the heavy-duty level, the Ram 2500 will probably take and keep the lead over the Silverado HD.
