V8 Battle: 2022 Ram 1500 vs 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 in BC

June 2,2022

If you are searching for a strong pickup that offers the best output in its class, then you need to be looking at the 2022 Ram 1500 lineup. Compared to the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models, it provides more robust performances with its V8 engines.   The one thing that these two light-duty trucks have in common is that they can both be fitted with an array of motor options. However, the V8 selection for the Ram is far superior to that of the Chevy.   The Ram 1500 Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited all come standard with a 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it pushes out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Chevy Silverado 1500 uses a smaller 5.3-litre V8 that is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. It delivers a mere 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.   If you opt for the Ram 1500 TRX, you will find a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 growling underneath the hood. Pumping out a staggering 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque (Best-In-Class for both estimations), you have heads turning every time you step on the accelerator. Meanwhile, the Chevy's largest motor is the 6.2-litre V8 that produces only 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.   Contact us today to learn more!
