2022 RAM 1500 vs 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500: Full-Size Pickup Head-to-Head

Today’s pickups are more stylish than ever before. The 2022 RAM 1500 goes farther, backing that style with substance that competitors like the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 have a hard time keeping up with. Like the other new RAM trucks at Prestige Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, it’s a great daily driver that thrives in any environment.

2022 RAM 1500 vs 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500

Driving Dynamics

Both trucks offer multiple engine choices, and we’ll admit that the Chevy Silverado 1500 has a slight edge — a mere five horsepower — over the RAM 1500 in their respective base engines.

However, since the RAM 1500 TRX packs a 702-horsepower wallop thanks to its Hellcat engine, it proves itself to be the superior model in the end. That’s 282 more horsepower than you can get in the most-powerful version of the Chevy pickup.


What if you’re shopping for a work truck? Here, the RAM 1500 has three significant advantages over the Chevy Silverado 1500.

  • 2,320 pounds of maximum payload, 20 pounds more than the Chevy pickup
  • The RAMBox® cargo management system, which you can’t get in a Chevy Silverado 1500
  • An optional telematics package that can be leveraged for fleet use, even if your “fleet” is just one truck

Off-Road Capability

You can option either of these trucks with four-wheel drive. If you want to actually enjoy good off-road handling, however, you’re more likely to find it in the RAM 1500. It offers Active-Level Four-Corner Suspension that makes a big difference on rough trails and smooth roads alike.

Tech and Safety Features

Some features at our RAM dealership in Las Vegas are the same as you’d find in a new Chevy truck. These days, everybody offers hill descent control, backup cameras, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, for instance.

If towing is a priority to you, odds are that towing safety matters to you, too. You’ll appreciate small features like the LED trailer hitch light, and higher-tech options like trailer reverse steering control, which helps you maneuver in challenging situations.
