If you're looking for a new pickup to enliven your Schaumburg drive, odds are you've researched both the RAM 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500. The RAM 1500 specs give it the edge in suspension, handling, and cargo capacity. No matter the road, or the cargo you haul, the RAM 1500 is the truck you want.

Suspension and Handling

Superior design and engineering give the RAM 1500 a suspension that is much smoother and controlled than the Silverado. Here are some features that separate the RAM from the Silverado:
  • Standard front/rear stabilizer bars: Help control during cornering
  • Coil Springs in front/rear suspension: Create a smoother, safer ride
  • Standard automatic load leveling: Ensures ride height stays level
  • Drift Compensation Steering: Automatically accounts for road conditions
  • Longer wheelbase: 144.6 inch wheelbase (crew cab, short bed) makes for sharper, more precise handling
These features make for a sense of safety, reliability, and driveability in the RAM 1500 that you just don't find in the Chevy Silverado 1500.

Cargo Access

In terms of ease of access and versatility of cargo space, the RAM 1500 jumps ahead again. With an ergonomically sound, low lift-over bed, the RAM 1500 is safer and easier. Put them side-by-side and you can easily see the difference:
