Car shopping can be an adventure, and with so many options to choose from and research, it can be a daunting task. We want to help! If you are looking for a great Truck in Bristol, TN, or Forest City, NC, then the Ram 1500 and Silverado 1500 are probably on your list of options. Both are great Trucks, but which one is right for you? We know which one we would choose here at Friendship Auto, but why don’t we give you the facts and let you make that decision for yourself!
Ram and Chevy are both well respected names when it comes to trucks, they build durable, tough, and capable vehicles. Both 1500’s give you power and capability where you need it. They both come with 6 cyl. V6 engines, meaning they can stand up to most challenges. The Ram 1500 comes out on top in horsepower with 305 hp @ 6400 rpm compared to 285 hp @ 5300 rpm for the Silverado. And again the Ram 1500 beats out the Silverado 1500 in Maximum GVWR with a Max of 6,600 lbs, compared to 6,500 lbs with the Silverado.
The Interior of both trucks comes filled with great standard and available features like split-folding bench seats, innovative technology to keep you connected, and outstanding safety features to protect you, passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians. Upgraded models and packages offer spacious seating areas, cargo and storage areas, and expanded capabilities with hauling and towing. Both the Ram 1500 and Silverado 1500 come with equally outstanding warranties, a basic 3 yr./ 36000 mi., drivetrain 5 yr./ 60000 mi., and roadside assistance 5 yr./ 60000 mi.
When comparing these two vehicles, which stack up fairly well to each other, it really comes down to power and capability. From where we are standing the Ram 1500 proves itself to be a more powerful, durable, and capable truck, able to handle any project you might throw at it, and with the available HEMI engine, the Ram 1500 can’t be beat. Want to take the Ram 1500 for a test drive and see if it’s the right fit for you? Then come see us at one of our Friendship Auto Group locations in Bristol, TN, or Forest City, NC, today and let us help you find the perfect Ram 1500 for you!
