The 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. The 2013 Dodge Ram

2013 Chevy SilveradoAre you thinking of shopping for a new truck for the upcoming year? Consider stopping by Sunshine Chevrolet near Oakbrook, IL to test drive some Chevy’s latest heavy duty offerings that we have on our lot. The ChevroletSilverado 1500 is a great all-around option for a pickup that can haul cargo, make you comfortable inside while driving, and still put up completely respectable fuel economy numbers. Let’s see how the 2013 Dodge Ram compares to the Silverado.

A Whole Slew of Standard Interior and Safety Features

Here’s an arena where the Silverado really shines. Standard with driver and passenger airbags, a passenger airbag sensor, thorax side impact airbags and head curtain side impact airbags, Chevy can keep you solidly safe. The rear window comes standard with a defogger, which isn’t even available on the Ram. The very convenient pass through rear seat makes reaching into the back easier, another feature the Ram doesn’t have. Only the Silverado has considered driver ergonomic comfort by adding additional lumbar support. The Silverado has the option of adding steering wheel mounted audio controls, Bluetooth© connectivity, and an onboard handsfree communications system, where only some of those are available in the Dodge. The Silverado offers more amenities to help make your long drive seem shorter.

When we’re looking for a new vehicle, one thing that we love to compare is the warranty that an auto manufacturer is willing to offer with their new cars. We think that this is a good indication of how much care the maker put into their vehicle and how confident they are in their product. Here both newtrucks offer great warranties, offering bumper to bumper coverage for 3-years/36,000-miles and a powertrain and drivetrain warranty at 5-years/100,000-miles. The Chevy, however, goes above and beyond offering a Rust Warranty for 3-years/36,000-miles and a 5-year/100,000-mile roadside assistance program.
