Why You Should Choose the RAM 2500 Over the Silverado 2500

When it comes to heavy-duty trucks, Salinas drivers only care about one thing. Having the best. That's why at MY Jeep Chrysler Dodge RAM, we cut right to the heart of the matter, putting our stock in the RAM brand for all our truck needs. RAM is a regular truck of the year contender, and for a variety of great reasons.

Its upscale cabin feels like it hails from a premium vehicle while the power potential that lurks under the hood is the best in the industry. However, it's not enough to make claims about how great RAM trucks such as the heavy-duty 2500 is. No, it's best to put it up against its closest competitors, and while models such as the Chevy Silverado 2500 are great in their own right, there's no beating a RAM truck.

Right off the bat, it's immediately apparent that the RAM 2500 has an advantage. A more affordable MSRP makes the RAM 2500 more consumer-friendly as does the 40,000-mile advantage you get with its Roadside Assistance package. The Chevy Silverado 2500 comes with only 60,000 miles on Roadside Assistance while the RAM 2500 grants 100,000 miles.

Under the hood is where it really counts, and the RAM 2500 wins there as well. It's base-level engine, if you can call it that, is a 6.4-liter V8 that is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. By comparison, the Chevy Silverado 2500 comes standard with a 6.0-liter V8 with a six-speed automatic transmission. It comes as no surprise then, that the RAM 2500 features stronger power numbers.

  • RAM 2500: 410 horsepower, 429 pound-feet of torque
  • Chevy Silverado 2500: 360 horsepower, 380 pound-feet of torque

What's more is that the RAM 2500 also features a larger ground clearance than the Chevy Silverado 2500. You'll have 11.1 inches compared to the 9.7 inches you get with the Silverado 2500, meaning that the RAM 2500 is better equipped to handle off-road situations.

However, the best way to experience the ways in which the new RAM 2500 is better is to see it in action for yourself. Stop by our dealership and take a test drive today.
