Safety Rating And Feature Comparison

Regarding the safety ratings and features, we will indulge in a couple of truck items that constitute an efficient running of a powerful piece of machinery. In this case, we will cover the steering ability, the brake performance, and the tire functionalities.

Let's start with the steering capability. You will find that the Ram 1500 has a turning diameter of 46.2 regarding the curb-to-curb square ft. This is in comparison to the turning wheel diameter of 46.9 square feet. While this might seem like a small difference, this kind of finesse makes the Ram much more convenient for steering the wheel with utmost efficiency.

You must look at the braking system when considering your track's safety. Even the smallest detail can make all the difference when it comes to your safety. The 2021 Ram 1500 has a much higher thickness regarding the rear brake rotor and the front brake rotor. Furthermore, the Ram uses a 4-wheel disc type of brake while the Chevy uses a powered brake type prone to power failure. This also means that there is minimal chance of your braking system being compromised by an electrical failure.

Even though both vehicle models have a 4-wheel brake ABS for the first line, only the Ram has a 4-wheel brake ABS on the second line. These features imply that the Ram 1500 has better safety and precautionary measures than its counterpart.

Fuel Economy Comparison

You need to observe the fuel performance of your vehicle as this will become a recurring event that relates to vehicle maintenance. The 2021 Ram 1500 has 8.5 kilometres per litre for city drives and 10.6 kilometres per litre for highway travel. This is compared to the much-consuming Chevy engine with 6.8 kilometres per litre mpg in the city and 8.1 kilometres per litre for highway performance.

Therefore, it is prudent to argue that the Ram has a much higher advantage at fuel economy than the Chevy truck. You will also be able to store more gasoline in your fuel tank as it has a tank capacity of 98-litre compared to the Chevy's 1500 90-litre capacity.

Engine Performance

The 2021 Ram 1500 has been credited for having fantastic engine performance. Compared to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the RAM fairs advantageous. Some of the distinguished performer's features include a semi-electric and gas engine (V-6), with a sequential MPI fuel system. This is compared to the Gas V-6 engine of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Further, its engine type uses a direct injection fueling system.

You can further tell the difference in their engine oil cooler types, as well as their SAE Net Torque @ RPM. The Ram 1500's Regular Duty type, at a 269 @ 4800 RPM, is better than a TBD cooler engine at a 305 @ 3900 RPM. You will also find that while the Chevy engine produces 285 BHP @ 5300 PRM, the RAM pushes to 305 BHP@ 6400 RPM. Clearly, with regards to the engine performance of a heavy lifting truck, the Ram 1500 wins.

Advantages of the 2021 RAM 1500
