Pickup Truck Faceoff: 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn vs Chevy Silverado LT

Come by our dealership at 7745 South Tamiami Trail to get started at some point soon, but first, let's dive right into these incredible truck models so you can share in the knowledge! The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab pickup is plenty of truck, and it has a Durabed truckbed, adaptive cruise control, as well as chrome on both its mid-grille bar and its bumpers. Plus, it sports signature LED lighting on the exterior. Over on the 2020 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab model, it's absolutely hard to ignore with a new-to-2020 EcoDiesel engine in its powertrain offerings. The Big Horn continues with an expansive 12-inch split-app running touchscreen, a multifunction tailgate, and the popular RamBox storage system as available options! It's going to be close, but we'll decide which one works best for today, so come along for the ride!

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Power & Handling

All Big Horn models use an 8-speed TorqueFlite auto transmission. A 5.7L HEMI V8 engine gets 395-hp and 410 lb-ft of torque with the help of the innovative eTorque system and attains towing of up to 12,750-pounds. Enter the EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 engine. This leader of the pack channels all 480 lb-ft of torque and 260-hp to work for a masterful amount of towing: 12,560-pounds. A conventional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine works with the accommodating eTorque system, a fusion that extends 305-horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque to the Ram 1500, and up to 7,730-lbs of towing prowess. It's either a 4x2 or 4WD affair, both of them excellent in their presentation!

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Double Cab Power & Handling

An available 5.3L engine on the 2020 Silverado LT puts out 383 lb-ft of torque and 355-horsepower and can tow 11,600-pounds, as long as you also procure the "Max Trailering Package" for it. The 2020 LT Double Cab has a standard 8-speed auto transmission fitted to a turbocharged 2.7L engine with 310-horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. Then there is the 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I-6 with a 9,300-lbs towing capacity, as well as 277-hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. That one uses a 10-speed automatic transmission.It mitigates bumps sufficiently but is not really in the same category as the self-leveling air suspension on the Ram 1500.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Features & Design

An exceptional Uconnect 12" touchscreen bearing integrated Navigation is possible inside the Big Horn Quad Cab, a feature that certainly makes working trips much easier than trying to keep a separate device charged and ready to find the next contract location for workers. That said, the standard Uconnect 8.4" touchscreen is typically large enough. A coil-spring suspension is standard for the Quad Cab, and keeps things even, quiet, and reliably ready. Think you might need more than that, though? Look no further than an all-encompassing Active-Level 4-Corner Air Suspension, it can unquestionably bear anything you put on its figurative shoulders. It automatically lowers the pickup when driving at higher rates for better fuel economy, and it can also auto load-level so you don't have to do as much guesswork. Out in back, you can opt for a multifunction tailgate that is divided vertically 60/40, but also opens like a traditional one! For protection, it bakes-in an elective LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus, a standard 98-percent high-strength steel frame, standard 14.9-inch brakes, a total Surround View Camera, and six smartly-designed airbags. Topping things off well, the RamBox is a tradesperson's dream, a system that places within the truck's bed-walls secure, washable, and illuminated storage on both sides of the truck - without crimping the width available for cargo! The 6-foot by 4-inch long Quad Cab truckbed is durable as well as truly versatile with all of these amazing possibilities!

2020 Chevy Silverado LT Double Cab Features & Design

A high bar has certainly been set here, let's see what the Chevy LT has to offer! There's a 79.4-inch long truckbed on the LT Double Cab, but no multi-function tailgate with a vertical split! A 120-volt outlet is weather-resistant and located at the back of the truck-box, and that each corner sees 3 welded cleats, (making twelve standard tie-downs), which translates into 500-lbs of strength at each corner. The conceivable Power Release tailgate option can be automatically directed to release down, utilizing either agate touchpad, the key fob, or by a button inside. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab, with the addition of the available features, does offer a fair amount of value, but most would agree that it should migrate some of the available ones over into the standard category to truly pull off a win. A standard 8" touchscreen inside the cabin can operate Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphones, as well as broadcast a mobile Wi-Fi 4G LTE Hotspot. There is tech in the form of a multi-hued 15-inch Head-Up Display, although the jury's out whether or not that is a necessary feature. If you need a strong truckbed, there are no worries there, as this one has a roll-formed & high-strength steel Durabed! Picking up the slack is the novel trailer-camera system on the LT model, which allows owners to see up to 15 varying views of things behind them, which is super-helpful for procedures like trailering and checking on loose items.


The 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab landed several square and fair hits on the Chevy LT in this round, we are going to have to go with it as our pick today! Seriously, with its RamBox option alone, it pulls ahead, but the EcoDiesel really leaves the LT in the dust!
