Should you choose the 2024 Chevy Silverado or Ram 1500 for your Leominster jobs and Gardner adventures? While the Chevy may look good on paper, the new Ram 1500 is by far the better choice—and you don’t have to take our word for it! In their review, Car & Driver gave the 2024 Silverado a respectable 8.5/10 points—not bad, but pale in comparison to the Ram 1500 truck’s perfect 10/10.

So, while the Silverado may have higher towing and payload capacities, the 2024 Ram 1500 is by far the more comfortable and versatile choice for Fitchburg drivers. If you want a truck for more than just work, you should take a closer look at the Ram 1500 with the staff at Ron Bouchard Chrysler Dodge RAM. Keep reading below to compare the newest RAM 1500 vs. the Chevy Silverado 1500 for yourself. Then, contact our team to schedule a test drive today.



2024 Ram 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Ride Quality

Ride quality is somewhat subjective, kind of like mattress firmness. However, the Ram 1500 pickup’s standard coil spring suspension absorbs road bumps better than the Silverado 1500’s leaf-spring suspension, leading to a smoother ride—which just about everyone can agree is better.

That’s not all—when you upgrade to the Ram 1500’s Air Suspension, your ride will be even smoother. Plus, you can adjust the ride height for better fuel economy on the highway and better handling on rough terrain.

2024 Ram 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Fuel Efficiency

Not sure how the gas mileage specs for the RAM 1500 vs. Chevy Silverado fare against each other? You’ll once again find that it’s Ram 1500 all the way. The Ram 1500 achieves up to 25 mpg on the highway standard, which is a small but noticeable improvement over the Silverado’s 22 mpg highway.
