Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado 1500: Power & Performance

 Ram 1500 WhiteHaving a powerful engine is key to getting the work done. Let’s see how they stack up.

The 2022 Ram 1500 comes equipped with the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with the eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System that combines performance-enhancing and efficiency tech. When this is all combined with an available extra 130 lb-ft of torque, you can reach a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds. In addition to that, you’ll be able to generate power outputs of 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Meanwhile. The 2022 Silverado 1500 comes to the party with a 2.7L Turbo engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. While smaller than the Ram 1500, it does come with Automatic Stop/Start technology, which helps save on fuel economy when you come to a stop. It generates power outputs up to 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. This engine configuration reaches a maximum towing capacity of 9,500 pounds.

Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado 1500: Towing Technology

It’s one thing to possess the raw power to tow, but quite another to possess the tech to make your excursion smoother.

The Ram 1500 shines brightly here, as it comes with a bevy of available features to utilize. For example, it comes with the Trailer 360-degree Surround View Camera that allows you to view around, behind, beside, and above your trailer with this camera setup. When it’s paired with Trailer-Tow Power-Fold Mirrors, this complete system gives you a bird’s-eye view of both trailer and truck.

Another neat example is the Trailer Reverse Steering Control, which aims to maintain your rig and convey a sense of confidence when backing up. How it works is that the system itself controls your steering wheel while allowing you to steer with the Trailer Steering Knob, which makes backing up your rig easier than ever.

Meanwhile the basic Chevy Silverado 1500 trim comes with a barebones towing setup. While there is an advanced trailering package available for the Silverado 1500, it’s restricted to higher-end trims, leaving your basic model in the dust.
