The 2021 Ram 1500 competes against the Chevy Silverado 1500 in the light-duty segment. Both American pickup trucks offer full-size cabins, 4×4 drive and lots of other utilities.

Powertrain

The 2021 Ram 1500 is propelled by a 5.7 L engine block with eight cylinders. Claiming a 395-horsepower rating, the V8 powertrain takes advantage of the HEMI mechanics for optimum output. Peaking at 410 pound-feet of torque, the signature propulsion system allows you to haul a trailer that’s loaded with a maximum of 12,750 pounds. You can add various towing accessories and other hardware from the Mopar brand. This updated HEMI engine achieves good gas mileage with assistance from the eTorque function, which draws electrical power from a battery that’s rated at 48 peak volts. You will appreciate the enhanced driving range from the Mild Hybrid System on this light-duty Ram pickup truck. Generating only 285 hp and 305 lb-ft, the 2021 Silverado’s 4.3 L V6 engine is no match for the HEMI V8 powertrain. However, Chevrolet deserves credit for integrating the Active Fuel Management into the six-cylinder powerplant. Delivering 355 and 383 lb-ft, a 5.3 L V8 is optional for the Chevy model. The Dynamic Fuel Management is incorporated into this eight-cylinder propulsion unit. Both engines on this Chevy truck have the most recent version of the EcoTec3 technology. The 2021 Ram 1500 at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Brunswick also has much better towing capabilities than the Silverado model that’s powered by the 3.0 L Duramax engine. Despite having an impressive torque output and great fuel economy, this patented diesel engine supports a towing capacity of only 9,500 pounds.

Handling

The 2021 Ram 1500 Rock Ridge K2 is equipped with a lifted suspension system that improves off-road handling. You will appreciate the extra 6-inch increase in chassis height when navigating rocky terrains. Coming from the factories of BFGoodrich, 35-inch tires allow this robust pickup truck to roll with confidence. The Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Brunswick dealer promotes these signature wheels that come from the company’s KO2 series. Of course, this powerful Ram model runs on a 4×4 drive system for consistent handling on or off the pavement. You can easily cycle through eight total gear speeds from the automatic transmission system, which is built on the acclaimed TorqueFlite architecture. By contrast, some of the 2021 Chevy Silverado models are driven by an automatic gearbox with only six speeds. However, eight-speed and 10-speed auto transmissions are available for this Chevrolet truck, which also runs on a 4×4 drive. When equipped with the Adaptive Ride Control, the Silverado experiences minimal vibrations and vertical travel.

Infotainment System

The 12-inch center touch screen inside the 2021 Ram 1500 Rock Ridge K2 comes with the updated Uconnect technology. You may pinch the high-resolution monitor to zoom in on maps from the built-in GPS navigation system. SiriusXM Guardian adds a host of convenient services to this full-size pickup truck. Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Brunswick will demonstrate how to access the remote commands from this signature suite. This dealer also sells this light-duty model with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi modem that has an extended range. In dramatic contrast, the 2021 Chevy Silverado’s infotainment display has a maximum size of only 8 inches. However, the OnStar & Chevrolet Connected Services offer good value for smartphone users. Both American-made pickup trucks have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for linking mobile phones on the road. Generating 900 booming watts, 19 speakers by Harman Kardon are available for the Ram model. You could tune into commercial-free music on SiriusXM 360L during a drive. The Silverado’s Bose audio system only has seven speakers.
