If you’re looking for a capable full-size pickup truck near Walton, the used Chevy Silverado 1500 and used Ram 1500 models at Eddie Mercer Automotive in Pensacola, FL have a lot to offer. Both of these pickups are offered with a range of desirable pickup features, including:

  • Four-wheel drive (4WD)
  • V6 and V8 engines
  • Towing packages
  • Different cab and truck bed configurations

There are important differences worth taking a look at, though, which is where this comparison guide comes in.


There’s a wide range of price points between the Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 depending on the trim, package, and performance options you choose. Generally speaking, though, the Ram 1500 tends to run a bit under the Chevy Silverado 1500 in terms of price, making it a slightly more affordable option. It’s a gap that narrows as the vehicles age, though, so if you’re a die-hard Chevy driver, look further back in the model years.


The Silverado 1500 and Ram 1500 are both durable body-on-frame full-size pickups with V6 and V8 engine options, hefty towing packages, and available 4WD. They have different strengths, though:

  • Chevy Silverado 1500 – Recent renditions of the Silverado 1500 are offered with best-in-class horsepower, fuel economy, and a greater max towing capacity.
  • Ram 1500 – Recent Ram 1500 models are offered with a Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension, as well as a Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite 8 eight-speed automatic transmission.

Base Features

The last couple models years of the Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 both come standard with:

  • Vinyl upholstery and floor covering
  • Cruise control
  • Air conditioning
  • 17-inch steel wheels

Unlike the Chevy Silverado 1500, though, the Ram 1500 also comes standard with a spray-in bedliner that’s ready to take use and abuse.
