2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs. 2020 Ram 2500HD: Compare heavy-duty trucks

Pickup trucks have been the best-selling vehicles in America for a long time, but heavy-duty trucks are king of the hill. They can tow more than 35,000 pounds, carry more than 7,000 pounds, and the redesigned 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500/3500 HD and 2020 Ram 2500/3500HD have the kind of creature comforts and safety conveniences to be fit for a king, too. 

But which of these recently redesigned heavy-duty trucks is better?

6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has made heavy-duty work easier, even if the bold design isn’t easy on the eyes. The 2020 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty reset the bar for HD pickup trucks with plenty of power, capability, and luxury.
