If you're in the market for a heavy-duty, commercial grade pickup truck, you've likely already heard of both the Ram 2500 and the Chevy Silverado 2500. These trucks are incredibly muscular, generating enough raw power to tow just about anything. However, they can both also be extremely refined, offering well-equipped, luxurious cabins that are stocked with enough convenience features to keep you comfortable and entertained.

Whether you're looking for a high-powered monster to handle your workload, or something that can take you to and from the office, while still taking you on adventures during the weekend, one of these trucks could be perfect for you. To help you decide which is the best fit for your unique needs, our team at Greenbrier Motors has put together this comparison of the 2018 Ram 2500 vs. 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500.

Powerful Performance: Ram vs Silverado

The standard engine in the Ram 1500 produces 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, while the Chevy Silverado 2500 falls slightly behind with just 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, this base engine on the Ram can tow up to 17,610 pounds, while the Silverado can tow up to 14,800 pounds. The Ram 2500 offers three different engines to choose from, while the Silverado 2500 offers two engines.

Superior Capability in the Ram 2500 vs Silverado 2500

Both these pickup trucks are built for hard work and offer a variety of different features to help you handle your toughest jobs around Lewisburg, Alleghany, and Ronceverte. Tow/Haul Mode and Trailer Sway Control can help you stay in control while towing a heavy trailer full of cargo, making it easier to get it where you're going. You'll also get Hill Start Assist with both trucks, to hold the brakes as you transfer your foot to the accelerator while on a steep grade, so you won't roll back.

Climb into the Cab: Ram 2500 vs Chevy Silverado 2500

Both the Ram and the Silverado are available in a selection of different cab styles and bed lengths, so you can choose the truck that has the seating and space you need. At their most basic levels, both trucks come with a 6-speaker audio system to keep you entertained on your drives, but there's plenty of additional tech features that you can add for more connectivity.

Depending upon which cab style and trim you choose, you'll get a different combination of comfort features and conveniences. The base crew cab of the Ram 2500 comes with helpful power adjustable heated side mirrors, which are not available on the base model of the Silverado 2500.
