There is no other option that provides all of the practical qualities necessary for a pickup in such a stylish package. The interiors of the Ram 1500 are more luxurious. They are also no stranger to hauling and towing. Compare it to the 2021 Silverado 1500, its close competition, to see why truck drivers consistently prefer the 2021 Ram 1500.

Interior Comparison

Since you will be spending most of your time inside the car, you want to pay attention to how the cabin feels. Both vehicles offer many options. The crew cab is fairly standard, giving you seats for five passengers with plenty of room. There is an even larger cabin option called Quad Cab in the 2021 Ram 1500 and Double Cab in the Silverado 1500. The larger cab gives you room enough for six people.

The 2021 Ram 1500 provides more creature comforts than the Silverado 1500. The Ram 1500 rocks with wood interior trim, ventilated and heated seats, and a panoramic sunroof. The 2021 Silverado 1500 is still sporting manual windows, manually adjustable seats, and tacky hard plastics. In the 2021 Silverado 1500, you have to pay extra for the basics.

You can combine work and play with the Ram 1500’s infotainment system. The base model carries an 8.4-inch touchscreen or an optional 12.0-inch touchscreen. Control your smartphone with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, and charge it with the optional wireless pad.

Performance Comparison

There are various engine options for the 2021 Ram 1500 and 2021 Silverado 1500. The Ram 1500 provides a semi-hybrid V6 and V8 that takes advantage of what Ram calls its eTorque motor. It is a 48-volt electric motor that adds much-needed torque to the engines. The V8 can be had without the hybrid, and the diesel V6 option outputs a massive amount of torque with no battery.

The 2021 Silverado 1500 also provides a V6, two V8s, and a diesel six-cylinder. Instead of pairing any option with a battery-powered motor, they offer a turbocharged four-cylinder alternative.

The Ram 1500 can carry slightly more on its bed, while the Silverado 1500 can pull slightly more. However, the payload and towing capacity are comparable at roughly 2,300 pounds and 13,000 pounds, respectively.
