Miami Lakes Automall Ram 1500 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Towing Capacity

With the 2019 Ram 1500 coming out soon, and the pricing having been announced, we thought this would be a good time to do a comparison. At Miami Lakes Automall, we sell seven brands, including the top-selling truck brands, Ram and Chevrolet. To keep things fair however, we’ll match up both 2018 models when looking at their power and capacities. After all, we all know the specs to look for are their capabilities.

Configurations

First things first, let’s clearly define the configuration of each truck. The highest trim on the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a High Country with a crew cab and four-wheel-drive. It is also available with a short truck bed or standard truck bed. To give both trucks the best chance, we’ll go with the standard 178” or 6’5” truck bed. That means for the 2018 Ram 1500, we’ll also go with a crew cab, also available with two truck bed sizes, and the Limited trim (the highest trim level), and we’re hooking it up with a 6’4” truck bed and a 4×4 drivetrain.
