TCC Rating

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ram 1500 is a half-ton favorite, with fuel economy and ride comfort being its main strengths once again. The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado continues with a serious face, impressive powertrain options, a comfortable and refined interior, and the right mix of technology.
