2020 Ram 1500 vs. Its Competition

2020 Ram 1500
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Ram 1500 is often mentioned alongside its key rivals from Ford and Chevrolet, but each truck has a fairly devoted buyer base.

Ford’s F-150 is the standard bearer to this day, and stays current despite being older than both the Ram and Chevy.

The Silverado and Sierra 1500 trucks share a platform and some interesting features, but new turbo-4 engines are a letdown, and so are safety scores thus far.

The Toyota Tundra is comparatively ancient, and the Nissan Titan technically competes on paper, but lags behind the big three American brands in several key areas.

Quick Specs
6.2
The 2020 Ram 1500 has its truck priorities straight, even when it’s cloaked in upscale trims.
5.2
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado is a strong, solid truck with the largest bed in the class, but it’s not as well done as the new Ram 1500.
5.3
The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 draws from a broad palette to paint a handsome, conservatively styled truck.
6.5
The 2019 Ford F-150 hangs on to its best-selling truck title with a bevy of powertrains, thousands of build possibilities, and a seemingly endless reserve of truck bona fides.
4.5
The 2019 Nissan Titan is out of step with far more advanced rivals that don’t cost much more.
5.0
The 2019 Toyota Tundra has its virtues, but it’s a dated pickup truck ripe for redesign.
