Starting with the exterior design of these two vehicles, it is easy to see the differences. The more angular and modern design of the 2016 Chevy Silverado is eye-catching and aggressive. However, the comfortable and classic design of the RAM 1500 has the confidence of the RAM brand and design details that hint at the powerful engine that lies under the hood.  The 2016 Chevy Silverado has a base 4.3-liter V6 engine that offers 285 horsepower and gets an estimated 24 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2016 RAM 1500 comes with a smaller 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts down an impressive 305 horsepower and achieves up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. When it comes to engine efficiency and capability, the impressive specs of the RAM 1500 seem to outweigh the benefits of the Chevy.  

Looking to the interior, both trucks offer a more traditional layout and feel. The bright and colorful LCD screen available in both trucks makes the control center appear more modern and high-tech, while great convenience features like Bluetooth compatibility make it easy to make hands-free phone calls and enjoy music while behind the wheel. The RAM 1500 pickup offers standard Park Assist technology, and both trucks have space for up to 3 passengers at the base trim. Comfortable cloth seating comes standard in each truck, but the tough vinyl trim on the RAM 1500's seats help to keep the interior looking newer longer.
