Compare Used Chevy Silverado 1500 and Used Ram 1500 in Sanford

Heavy-duty trucks can cause a swell of confusion upon first glance.

But which has what it takes to be your next purchase for Orlando area life? Compare the Chevy Silverado, and Ram 1500 with your Daytona Beach used truck authority today.

Towing Specifications

Both the Chevy and the Ram will feature varying towing abilities based on model year, but in general, neither model tows less than 6,200-pounds. The maximum towing capacity for many Ram 1500 models falls around 7,500-pounds, while the Chevy can reach up to 10,000-pounds.

Interior Features

In general, the Ram is the more luxurious of the two, while the Chevy comes standard as a workhorse, often with a rubberized interior, vinyl seats, and wipeable surfaces made for the job site. Generous tech screens are available on higher trims and a very impressive driver's assistance suite with blind-spot monitoring and collision migration has been standard on the Chevy for quite some time. The Ram 1500 offers incredibly cavernous cabin space with large center console options, hideaway compartments, and many newer models provide a special surface for your laptop if working on the go. Finer materials like leathers and open-pore wood are more accessible in the Ram than in the Chevy.


Many Chevy Silverado 1500 models are about 230-inches long and 81-inches wide, with a bed length ranging from 70-inches to 100-inches. The Ram is a similar size, with a 230-inch length, an 82-inch width, though its bed is smaller. At the minimum, find about 67-inches of bed length and top out at 76-inches.

Deciding on Your Next Truck near Tampa

Both the Chevy Silverado 1500 and Ram 1500 are fantastic used truck choices: your decision comes down to what's most important to you. If you want a workhorse with high towing capacities, a larger bed, but potentially less interior flair, opt for the Chevy. If you crave luxury interior detailing, a larger standard safety suite, and don't care so much about high towing power, opt for the Ram at our Jacksonville location.
