The 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. the 2014 Ram 1500

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500The freshly redesigned 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the best options for Bradenton and Tampa drivers looking for a hard working, reliable pickup truck. And despite an impressive power increase from last year’s model, Chevy engineers still managed to increase fuel economy. That means both less time and money spent on the pump.

Here Cox Chevys puts the 2014 Silverado 1500 grille to grille with one of its biggest competitors: the 2014 Ram 1500. In the end, we still think that the Silverado has more to offer drivers.


The Silverado 1500 LT comes standard equipped with a Gasoline / Ethanol V6 engine with a power rating of 305 lb-ft of torque at 3900 rpm. Compare this to the 3.6L V6 on the Ram 1500 Tradesman model, which has a 269 lb-ft of torque at 4800rpm. When it comes to the working ability of a pickup truck, the first place to look at is torque. Tougher torque, especially at lower RPM’s typically means more reliable performance, as well as better acceleration. Most drivers really notice this difference when hauling loads. The higher rating helps the Silverado to tow 50 more pounds than the base Ram.
