Silverado or RAM 1500: Cargo Bed & Storage Features

In addition to the towing and hauling capabilities of both models, it’s important to consider the cargo management features of each truck. The RAM 1500 stands out from the start with the RAMBox® Cargo Management System and other RAM exclusives: 

  • RAMBox® Cargo Management System: A class-exclusive feature, the RAMBox® has two storage bins fitted right into the truck bed for safe storage of smaller tools and equipment. 
  • Multifunction Tailgate: Rather than one tailgate door, the RAM Multifunction Tailgate is split into two doors that swing open 88°, so you can easily access cargo that’s farther back in the bed without stepping into it. 
  • In-Floor Storage: Another class-exclusive feature, concealed in-floor storage can be found inside the cabin of the RAM 1500. 

While the SIlverado 1500 does offer a Multi-Flex Tailgate add-on, it’s not as comprehensive or as flexible as the RAM 1500 cargo highlights. 

RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado: Cabin Technology

When it comes to technology inside the Silverado and RAM 1500, you’ll have access to essential technologies like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. However, the RAM 1500 provides you with even more from the start with features such as: 

  • Uconnect® 4C NAV: Utilize split-screen technology to craft a personalized home screen, enjoy full-screen navigation to new job sites, and stay entertained with SiriusXM® with 360L. 
  • 12-inch touchscreen: Available in upper-level trims, this main touchscreen display is the largest-in-class and includes pinch-and-zoom technology!
  • Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System: With 19 speakers total, this 900-watt luxury audio system is the largest in its class.
