2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab vs 2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab

Talk about capable and tech-heavy trucks, these two are at the top of the list (and we here a Lakeland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram love talking about them)! Starting with the 2020 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab model, a fan-favorite, make sure to mark that it has a 3rd-gen EcoDiesel engine to wield within its engine choices. The Big Horn doesn’t just rely on that prodigious fact though, incorporating a vertical split-tailgate option, the RamBox storage system, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility, and even a 12-inch dual-app operating touchscreen! The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab pushes back hard though, with distinctive LED lighting, adaptive cruise control, and chrome fenders on the front and back! It also allows a 15-view camera system and a self-lowering tailgate option too.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Power & Handling

A HEMI 5.7L V8 engine has a towing capability of up to 12,750-pounds and maintains up to 395-hp and 410 lb-ft of torque with the ground-breaking eTorque system. Rocking 480 lb-ft of torque and 260-horsepower to tow 12,560-pounds, the EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 engine is a popular one to install, that’s clear already in 2020. The Ram 1500 is either a 4×2 or 4WD drivetrain arrangement, in case you didn’t know that already, offering just what you need upon purchase. A standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine accomplishes much with the obliging eTorque system, a blending of powers that ranges up to 305-horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, not to mention up to 7,730-lbs of towing power as well. All of this can ride well on an Active-Level 4-Corner Air Suspension, which automatically lowers the truck as it goes to higher speeds for augmented fuel numbers, and it can also self load-level automatically so you don’t have to do as much guesswork.

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Double Cab Power & Handling

The 2020 LT Double Cab can be 4×2 or 4×4 and begets a standard 8-speed auto transmission furnished with a turbocharged 2.7-liter engine. That partnership attains 310-horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque, but only takes hold of 6,800-lbs of total towing. A 460 lb-ft of torque 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I-6 engine, however, is available – one that raises 277-horsepower to hold up 9,300-lbs towing capacity. That engine utilizes an alternate ten-speed auto transmission. A possible 5.3-liter V8 engine on the 2020 Silverado LT model will support choices for one of the following auto transmissions: a ten- or 8-speed. Going with the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management, owners will delight in the 383 lb-ft of torque and 355-horsepower, which can be directed to tow 11,600-pounds, however, an add-on “Max Trailering Package” is mandatory for that to occur.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Features & Design

The 6-foot by 4-inch long Quad Cab truckbed feels like a real truck, and indeed, has tons of adaptable features that work to enhance its usefulness that we will describe here. Before that though, notice the largest-in-class Uconnect 12″ touchscreen option, a system that also brings in Navigation and SiriusXM. It’s standard with a big 8.4″ touchscreen. Did you know that you can acquire a vertically-divided tailgate (60/40), but also opens and closes like a conventional one, and still supports 2,000-pounds like its no big deal! An authority on suspensions due to all of its off-roading experience, Ram installs both 6 airbags as well as a coil-spring suspension as standard for the Big Horn Quad Cab. The RamBox is an impressive add-on to the Big Horn. It is a system that arranges for space inside of the truck’s bed-walls that can be locked, washed out, and lit-up (on both sides of the truck)! Wow!

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Double Cab Features & Design

With a 79.4″ long high-strength steel Durabed for the LT Double Cab, things are looking up for this model, despite that it doesn’t allow for a multi-function split-tailgate! A standard 8″ touchscreen is there and will play well with both an optional mobile Wi-Fi 4G LTE Hotspot and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The LT further brings in a multi-color 15″ Head-Up Display, a 120-volt outlet is settled at the rear of the truck box, and each corner gets three welded cleats, which means a rating of 500-lbs at all four corners. The Power Release tailgate option works via a touchable gate pad, the key fob, or by a switch in the cabin.The LT does allow a luxury feature in the form of an original trailer-camera system that gets purchasers the ability for up to 15 diverse views of everything around them. Again, it will cost a bundle to get that innovative system to help with trailering issues and general visibility clarity.

Conclusion:
