Interior Comparison

As utility vehicles, pickup trucks devote a large chunk of the wheelbase to the cargo area. That leaves the cabin just enough for a three- or a five-seater, depending on the variant. That is why it is important to check the interior space of each make and model before committing to the purchase.

In this regard, the 2022 RAM 1500 gets the advantage over the 2022 Silverado 1500. The former has 117.2 cubic feet of more passenger volume, while the latter can only offer 92.80 cubic feet. That may not be a big disparity between the two. However, that can translate to a more comfortable ride, especially if you are going on long cross-country drives.

Other amenities in the 2022 RAM 1500 are second-row seats that recline by eight degrees and have a heating and cooling function. For storage, it comes with a flat-load floor, integrated RamBin, tie-down rings, and expandable under-seat storage.

The 2022 Silverado 1500 edges out the 2022 RAM 1500 with the large 13.4-inch-diagonal horizontal touch screen versus the 12-inch touch screen with the Uconnect 5 system of the RAM. Both have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the RAM also gets split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views, and content from SiriusXM with 360L and personalized stations powered by Pandora.
