Which Heavy Duty Truck Packs the Best Value?
The standard engine of the 2020 Ram 3500 is a 6.4-liter V8 that’s rated for 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for a diesel powerplant, you'll also be able to choose from a 6.7-liter turbodiesel (370 hp, 850 lb-ft) or a High-Output 6.7-liter turbodiesel (400 hp, 1,000 lb-ft). The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 offers either a standard 6.6-liter V8 (401 hp, 464 lb-ft) or a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 (445 hp, 910 lb-ft). The consensus? Both trucks come pretty evenly matched in their gas-powered forms, but the 2020 Ram 3500 is king for unrelenting diesel performance.
Chevy’s heavy-duty entry may look like an upscale choice with its massive grille and over-the-top accents, but its interior features and amenities trail far behind what’s offered by Ram. Work trucks tend to put performance over function, but the 2020 Ram 3500 dashes all preconceived notions with plenty of productivity-boosting technology and luxury features. You’ll be able to choose from a list of impressive options like Ram’s Largest-In-Class 12-inch touchscreen, the RamBox® Cargo Management System, a 360° Surround View Camera, plenty of driver assists and far more!
