In the automotive industry, the full-size pickup truck market niche is incredibly competitive. With dozens of available models from so many different manufacturers, it's a market that many new vehicle purchasers find difficult to analyze. Two of the biggest players in the full-size pickup truck market niche are RAM and Chevrolet. Both manufacturers have developed iconic brands by continually engineering and marketing some of the best-selling and most versatile pickup trucks on Earth. Let's take a look at a couple of their most popular models and compare them head on, to get a better understanding of the full-size pickup truck market.


Chevy 3500 Review

First, let's take a closer look at the Chevy Silverado 3500. The interior of the Chevy Silverado 3500 has ample headroom and legroom, especially for rear-seat passengers in the extended cab model. Having said that, the Chevy Silverado 3500 doesn't offer any more interior space than the RAM 3500. Under the hood, the Silverado 3500's engine is adequate but pales in comparison to the RAM 3500's.

The truth is, for as good as a truck as the Chevy Silverado 3500 is, the RAM 3500 is better in nearly every aspect. Over the past few years, the RAM 3500 has risen to the top of the full-size pickup market due in large part to its 410-horsepower, 6.4 liter HEMI V8 engine. Combine this power with a five-link coil rear suspension and you get best-in-class towing power with a max capacity of 30,000 pounds! Depending on which model RAM 3500 you buy, there are a seemingly endless amount of interior options. The optional UConnect 8.4 inch touchscreen is one of the model's most popular features, while the leather upholstery and real wood trim are a throwback to a simpler, more rustic time.
