The Chevrolet Silverado 3500 & Dodge Ram 3500 belong to a very exclusive truck club, the 600 ft lbs. of torque club! Both of these are very capable trucks, and no I'm not comparing the interior! Lets look at what these trucks really shine at, towing massive amounts of trailer, boat, w/e.
Which one would you pick?
Chevrolet Silverado (6.6 V8 Duramax Diesel, 300 HP & 605 ft lbs. of torque) *Max payload 5,155 lbs.**Max towing 16,400 lbs.*
Dodge Ram 3500 (5.9 Inline-6 Cummins Diesel, 310? HP & 610 ft lbs. of torque) *Max payload 4,620 lbs.**Max towing 16,300 lbs.*
Looks like the Chevrolet wins just by a little, but the Dodge is no slouch when it comes to towing a big load.
Before everyone asks, I did not include the Ford 3500 because it doesn't belong in the 600 ft lbs. of torque club, which is very exclusive.
Which one would you pick, the Chevy or the Dodge?
