Serving Pleasanton, San Antonio, and Jourdanton, TX

Trucks can be an attractive option for many reasons, all simply depending on who you are, what you do, and what you like. While some people just prefer the look of a truck, others aren’t in it for aesthetics at all, rather driving a truck because they need that extra power. A truck is also great for workers who have to haul around their equipment. By putting all that in the bed, you can easily keep your things in the truck with you while keeping it out of your face.

The two trucks in question, the 2017 Ram 2500 and Chevy Silverado 2500, are both quality trucks that rightfully deserve their praises, however one does outshine the other. The 2017 Ram 2500 is a top-of-the-line option over the Chevy Silverado 2500, for several reasons including performance, capacity, and consumer ratings.

Capacity

An important thing many people consider when choosing a car is its capacity. You want to know how many people you can fit, how much you can stuff in the trunk, etc. Often when thinking about purchasing a truck, this thought doesn’t take as much priority as it does with a car. With the Ram 2500, you don’t even have to worry about it. Compared to the Chevy Silverado, the Ram has one extra seat, 2,000 more pounds of maximum towing capacity, all yet still fitting into a slightly smaller, more compact model.

Consumer Ratings

While you shouldn’t let other people’s reviews affect your decision too much when purchasing anything of high value, you should at least take them into consideration. For example, when a truck like the 2017 Ram 2500 has consistent five star ratings across the board compared to the Chevy Silverado 2500, it’s clear there’s a difference there that people have recognized, and it would do you well to take that into heavy consideration.


All in all, there’s no doubt that both trucks are great quality pieces of machinery that would both treat you well on the road. However, there’s also no doubt that one option is much better, faster, and stronger than the other. That option is the 2017 Ram 2500. This truck has by far won the competition of comparison between the two, and the Chevy Silverado didn’t stand a chance.
