2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Features & Design
The Big Horn exterior features chrome accents. There are multiple appearance packages with added style options and comfort features, allowing buyers to customize even farther. These features include Ram’s Uconnect 12.0 with a Largest-in-Class 12-inch touchscreen. Standard features of the Big Horn include upscale finishes, the Uconnect connectivity system, Apple and Android capability, multiple storage solutions, and more. The available Sport Appearance Package makes a bold statement with body-color front and rear bumpers, a body-color grille and monochromatic paint, while cloth and vinyl bucket seats take the interior style up a notch. .
2020 Chevy Silverado LT Features & Design
Features on the Silverado LT include remote keyless entry, two front tow hooks, heated door mirrors, and chrome bumpers. The cabin is quiet, with little road noise. There’s plenty of room, and the seats are comfortable. But overall this truck has a dated looking interior and lacks that feel of luxury that some trucks today offer. It also does not offer power-tilt/telescoping steering-wheel adjustment and the largest infotainment display available is an 8-inch touch screen.
Overall, the Ram is the clear winner with a more modern interior, a powertrain lineup that has multiple ‘Best in Class’ claims, the ability to get the largest in class 12″ touchscreen and more.
