2022 Ram 1500 vs Silverado 1500: Interior Features and Space

Ram 1500 InteriorIn the modern world, a pickup truck can be much more than a bare-bones work vehicle. The 2022 Ram 1500 and Silverado 1500 offer luxury driving experiences via their respective Limited and High Country trim levels.

With leather-appointed seats and premium audio systems, these trims make each drive feel more worthwhile. With the crew cab models, everyone in the cabin will have plenty of space to call their own.

Rear legroom is where the Ram has the Silverado beat. With 45.2 inches of maximum rear legroom, the Ram allows passengers in the back to stretch out and get cozy on long rides. In the Silverado, you’ll find just 43.4 inches of maximum rear legroom.

MPG: The Ram EcoDiesel Engine Takes the Win

Ram 1500 Engine SpecsWith a range of gas and turbo-diesel engines to choose from, the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offer a high level of customization. Choose the engine that achieves the blend of performance and capability you desire.

Pickup trucks have seen incredible gains in gas mileage in recent years, and the reason has largely been diesel engines. The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 engines available for the Ram and Silverado both earn an EPA-estimated 33 highway MPG.

The Ram’s EcoDiesel V6 also offers a best-in-class 480 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-diesel in the Silverado falls a bit short of that with 460 lb-ft of torque. For a faster acceleration, you’ll want the added oomph!
