The days have come when the people can easily forget about Viper and Corvette. These days a lot of comparisons are being made among the various truck models available in the market. The full size trucks have been always a matter of concern for the domestic car manufacturing companies. Till the new truck by Ford comes out in the market, Silverado by Chevrolet will continue to hold the top most position in the consumer reports list. Ram 1500 has failed to make a good place for itself in the heart of the customers.
A brief of the competition
Since a few years a close competition is being observed between the two renowned vehicles. Both of them are being powered by the version 8 engines.
The Silverado that is going to come out in the market in 2014 has been powered by the GMC Sierra twin engine. This has left Ram far behind in the race. The truck could score only 81. This score was enough to make to the list of the top rated trucks.
Silverado have been able to get a narrow victory over Ram. The later finished with just 3 points less than the super truck by Silverado.
The factors that helped Silverado win the game is fuel economy and better payload and towing capacity. Not only is this the truck also has a very low step in height. This makes driving convenient.
There are also steps at the rear bumper. This helps a lot in loading and unloading the goods.
But the surveys have shown that most of the people still prefer Ram over Silverado. The most obvious reason behind this is that the ride is smoother. This has been only possible due spring rear suspension. It also has an eight speed automatic transmission.
