Comparing the 2021 Ram 1500 to Other Trucks in its Class


The new Ram 1500 has the power, space, and technology features to make it the go-to truck for our Poplar Bluff drivers.


But how do you know that the Ram 1500 is the truck that will make your life easier? While it is a tough competition, the Ram 1500 holds several advantages over the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150.

When it comes to towing your boat or RV to the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau, the Ram 1500 beats the Chevy Silverado 1500. When properly equipped and powered by the V8 or diesel engine, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds. This is way more than the Chevy Silverado 1500's 9,600-pound maximum towing capacity. The Ram 1500 also has a higher payload rate at 2,300 pounds for getting tools and materials to your job site in Jackson. The standard trailer sway damping on the Ram 1500 adjusts your speed to control the trailer if it has started to sway.

Packing cargo in your truck is more manageable in the Ram 1500 than in the Chevy Silverado 1500 with all of the storage configurations. If you have more or oddly shaped cargo, use the 60/40 split flat-folding seats to max the cargo space out at 151.1 cubic feet. The Ram 1500 also has available in-floor cargo storage bins for even more space.

The Ram 1500 minimizes the noise from the road and elements in the cabin for a quieter drive than the Chevy Silverado 1500. If you want to really drown out any noise by rocking out to music, the 19-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system is better than the Chevy Silverado's six-speaker audio system. The available leather upholstery also gives more comfort to you and your passengers.

Options are very important when buying a new vehicle. Trim levels on a truck are a great way to customize the vehicle to your specifications. The Ram 1500 comes in eight different trim levels that offer their own features, while the Ford F-150 only comes in six trim levels. The eight trim levels on the Ram 1500 include:

  • Tradesman
  • Big Horn
  • Rebel
  • Laramie
  • Long Horn
  • Limited
  • TRX

The Ram 1500 having more trim levels than the Ford F-150 gives you more of a chance to get exactly what you want without compromise.

While both the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 have 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranties and 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranties, the Ram 1500 takes it one step farther. The Ram 1500 offers a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty on the diesel engine. No other truck in its class has that kind of warranty.

Both brands also know that new trucks need to have modern technology. Both have touchscreens, but the Ram 1500 touchscreen is slightly larger at 8.4 inches. This makes it easier to see everything while driving through Dexter. The Ram 1500 touchscreen is also a part of the Uconnect® system that ties your smartphone to your vehicle for a better driving experience. Advantages of Uconnect® include:

  • SiriusXM All Access
  • Send and receive calls hands-free
  • Shop online from vehicle
  • Use the Uconnect® App to start your engine
