DARE TO COMPARE
A lot of power lies between two of the most-recognized trucks in the industry: the 2022 Ram 2500 vs. 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500. Though they may sound similar, drivers are surprised to find that these trucks have major differences in terms of performance, safety, and infotainment.
We at Royal CDJR have written up this easy-to-read comparison between the two models. If you’re an interested driver near Cobleskill, Binghamton, and Norwich, NY, keep reading to see which truck has the most for your drive.
Both models offer their drivers a choice of two different engine options. To introduce their lineups, the Ram 2500 and Chevy Silverado 2500 give their base models a powerful standard engine.
As you can see, both standard engines keep up with one another for the most part, though the Ram 2500 does offer slightly higher horsepower and much higher towing capacity. Simply put: if you’re looking for the most out of a standard model, the Ram model is capable of more power.
However, it’s not all about the numbers. To receive a truck that can handle any task, you’ll want a model that comes with its fair share of performance features. For example, the Ram 2500 uses available Bilstein® Gas-Charged Monotube Shocks to tackle any uneven or rough terrain. Once engaged, they provide a smoother ride so that you can focus on making your own path.
Unfortunately, the Silverado does not offer a trim level built for off-roading or include any off-roading features.
Safety starts with sight. The Ram 2500 offers an available Adaptive Forward Lighting System to help drivers see every aspect in and around their vehicle. The system comes complete with LED lighting.
Some other available features are:
These features are meant to assist drivers as they ride so their line of vision is clear for the journey ahead. The Chevy Silverado does offer available advanced headlights and cargo bed LED lighting; however, it does not offer an assistive lighting system such as the Ram’s.
Staying connected is no issue in either the Ram 2500 or the Chevy Silverado, however one model tends to lean towards fun luxuries and driver-focused systems.
For example, the Ram 2500 has the available advanced Uconnect® 5C system, which adds more inches to your touchscreen and up to five user profiles, a customizable home screen, and dual-phone connectivity for passenger convenience. There, you can enjoy interfaces, see navigation, and control your entertainment and media settings.
When you find your perfect road playlist, add the optional 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system and surround yourself and your passengers with a 17-world-class speaker system.
Meanwhile, the Chevy Silverado can be equipped with an available 8-inch Chevy Infotainment 3 System with optional navigation. Not only will you experience lesser display real estate in the Silverado 2500, but your listening experience won’t be as concert-like, even with the available 7-speaker Bose® Premium Sound System equipped.
