We’ve put together a detailed, base model comparison of the two pickups below. We think the Ram 2500 wins this contest, hands down.

We know that some of our customers will be curious about the diesel versions of these trucks. So, we’re also going to do a Ram 2500 vs. Chevy 2500 diesel comparison. Chevy chose to offer a bigger diesel engine than Ram, going with a V8 compared to the I6 diesel that’s available in the Ram 2500. So, this choice boils down to whether you prioritize power over fuel efficiency. Here is our Chevy 2500 vs. Ram 2500 diesel comparison:

Ram 2500 Diesel

  • Engine – 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6
  • Horsepower – 370 hp
  • Maximum Towing Capacity – 19,680 pounds

Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel
