Here at Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we want to assist you in making a decision that feels the best for your lifestyle and your budget.



We know there are several trucks available to you, but we want to show you how the 2020 RAM 1500 stands out, taking the edge over the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500!

Difference in Performance

When you buy a new truck near Huntersville, you expect something robust and aggressive. We know that most truck buyer's care about the power underneath the hood, so let's take a look at what both the 2020 RAM 1500 and Silverado 1500 have in store for you to keep you going.

The 2020 RAM 1500 provides you with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® engine with eTorque for better hauling capabilities. This engine produces up to 305 horsepower.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado offers up a 4.3-liter V6 that only gives you 285 horsepower.

Design and Features Differences

While the design is a personal preference and you may like or dislike the RAM 1500, we find that its larger cabin is more comfortable and better equipped with premium materials that add more luxury to your overall experience. You'll be equipped with optional ventilated and heated seats, perfect for all different kinds of weather in Mooresville. You'll also love the available 12-inch Uconnect® system with navigation that is one of the largest in its class, making it easier to use while on the road. You'll have access to directions, Bluetooth capability, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and much more! All just a finger tap away.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado does offer some of the same features as standard, but the largest touchscreen is only eight-inches, making it more difficult to navigate while focusing on the road.
