Silverado 2500 vs. RAM 2500: Towing Power

The 2020 Silverado 2500 and 2019 RAM 2500 are both more than capable of delivering the towing power you need to get your equipment to Valrico job sites and trade it out for your camper when the weekend hits. Take a look at each vehicle’s maximum towing capacity:

  • 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500: 18,500 pounds
  • 2019 RAM 2500: 19,780 pounds

Silverado 2500 vs. RAM 2500: Engine Performance

Both the Silverado 2500 and RAM 2500 offer more than enough towing power to haul heavy equipment or a full-size camper. Of course, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to be towing every time you head out on the road in Brandon. Most of the time, you’ll probably just be tossing your gear in the bed and hitting the open road unhitched. When this is the case, you’ll want strong engine performance to get from Point A to Point B, and the Silverado 2500 is built to impress: 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Engines

  • Gas: 6.6L V8 Direct Injection with Variable Valve Timing – 410 hp
  • Diesel: 6.6L Duramax TurboDiesel V8 – 445 hp

2019 RAM 2500 Engines

  • Gas: 6.4L Heavy-Duty V8 HEMI® with MDS – 401 hp
  • Diesel: 6.7L I6 Cummins Turbo Diesel – 370 hp

As you can see, although the RAM 2500 delivers a bit more towing capability that you’ll use some of the time, the Silverado 2500 brings the strong engine performance you’ll use all of the time.
