All right. You’ve decided that you want a full-sized pickup truck for your next vehicle. There are several great models in this segment, but discerning shoppers often end up with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the RAM 1500 at the top of their lists. These are both tough, excellent trucks, but the 2023 Chevy Silverado comes out on top in some key areas that make it the clear winner in this comparison.


The thing about the 2023 Chevy Silverado is that it just gets stuff done. When you need a truck that’s a reliable heavy hauler, the Silverado 1500 beats the RAM 1500 in both towing and hauling capacity. This is an apples-to-apples comparison, too. We’re not just talking about the top-level Silverado vs. the base RAM. Instead, we’re looking at the top levels of what both vehicles can do when it comes to really putting in the work. When properly equipped, the Silverado can tow up to 13,400 pounds, and haul 2,280 pounds of payload.

By comparison, the RAM 1500 is still a strong truck, but at its best can only tow 12,750 pounds. To be fair, the RAM does have a 20-pound edge when it comes to payload, able to haul 2,300 pounds at its maximum capability.

Interior Features

Here’s one of the areas where your personal preference really comes into play. If you want a truck that’s got all the bells and whistles in its interior, the 2023 Silverado really delivers. With Bluetooth capability as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, available factory navigation systems and rear-seat USB Ports, wireless hotspot, and the Multi-Flex tailgate option that makes the Silverado and anywhere-on-the-go office, Chevy has outdone itself with the interior of the 2023 Silverado.

By comparison, the 2023 RAM 1500 has undergone a light refresh that still leaves it feeling a step behind the Silverado’s capabilities. However, the RAM’s interior quality is very good, and the ride is too, due to its use of coil springs rather than leaf springs.
