Design

The style of trucks is often why many drivers wish to own one, and both of these trucks impress with their ruggedness.

To start, the largest cab of the Ram 1500 has much more head and legroom for passengers in both rows than the largest cab of the Chevy Silverado 1500. The Ram 1500 offers Lebanon drivers more leather in the cabin as well.

Do you want an off-road focused truck? The Ram 1500 Rebel comes with a 2-inch lift and 33-inch all-terrain tires, which the Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 trim can't match. Plus, the Ram 1500 offers a cargo management system with drainable, lockable bins in the sidewall of the bed, and this is great for tailgates or storing work tools.
