2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2012 Dodge Ram 1500

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500Biggers Chevrolet has the 2012 Chevy Silverado in Elgin, IL ready and waiting for you to test drive! When looking for a pickup, you want a truck that’s going to be powerful and with a 4.8L V8 engine producing over 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, you’re going to get it in the Silverado 1500. There are many other pickups on the market, like the 2012 Dodge Ram 1500, but we at Biggers feel the Silverado has quite an edge over its competitors, and at a starting price of $30,320, it’s even a steal.

How Chevy Bests the Competition

The Chevrolet’s 4.8L displacement is higher than the 2012 Dodge Ram and, with its greater wheelbase (143.5 vs. 140.5) and addition of electronic stability control, you’re going to have that much more control of your cargo. Speaking of the pickup load, the Silverado has a longer bed and greater hauling volume than the Dodge pickup, perfect for Elgin drivers in these waning summer months.

Also with this new Chevy pickup, you’ll find daytime running lights, keyless entry, and the option for all-terrain tires, all completely unavailable on the Dodge.

Now, just because the Silverado is a fearsome beast doesn’t mean it can’t be comfortable on the inside. Chevrolet has given its flagship pickup more front and rear headroom, front leg room, and rear hip room than the Dodge model, comfortably seating six. There are numerous add-ons available like a handsfree cellular system, Bluetooth connectivity, and satellite radio available to make your driving experience as enjoyable as possible. Plus, the Chevrolet has a few features like a passenger air bag sensor, steering wheel audio controls, pass-through rear seat, and driver lumbar support that you won’t find in a Dodge.
