Both offer sturdy structures that allow for hauling heavy loads and working in tough conditions both on and off the road.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Power & Handling

The 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab has an impressive array of V6 and V8 engine options, each that packs strong power outputs and towing capabilities. The engine that comes standard is a highly-rated 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which produces up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. If you are looking for some additional power output, Ram offers a choice between a HEMI V8 (395 hp, 410 lb-ft) or an EcoDeisel V6 (260 hp, 480 lb-ft) that has class-leading stats when compared to the competition. Most notably, each of these engines is ready to work on and off the road with an impressive tow rating of up to 12,750 lbs!

2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab Power & Handling

Chevy impressively outfits each of the Silverado LT Double Cab trucks with a choice between two turbocharged engines, and a V8. The starting point is a 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine, which matches the Ram 1500 Pentastar V6 in power output, but doesn't quite match the tow ratings we see from the 1500. An optional engine offered with this model of the Silverado is a 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V6 that can produce an enhanced 460 lb-ft of torque! Compared to Ram's EcoDeisel engine, the Silverado falls slightly short, with a decent, but lower torque and tow capacity ratings. There is also a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.

2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Features & Design

Ram has designed the 2020 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab to be a solid trim model that builds on a solid selection of features and systems to help get the job done. Right out of the gate the 1500 Big Quad Cab has a 6'4" bed that is constructed with a solid steel chassis that resists deformation when packed with heavy payloads. The truck also is capable of working through tough terrain, coming standard with 8.7-inches of ground clearance thanks to the 18-inch wheels and supporting systems in the powertrain. The interior of the Quad Cab is decently sized, providing comfortable front seating that has lumbar support and creative storage compartments in the floor and around the cabin. The infotainment system is a major bonus with the 1500, coming standard with a Uconnect multimedia system that is on an 8.4" touchscreen or optional segment-exclusive 12" variant.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Double Cab Features & Design

Looking over at the Silverado LT Double Cab, we see a similarly sized and stocked variant, with a similarly sized bed and cabin to that of the 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab. The front row seating in the LT Double Cab is decently spaced, providing comfortable seating for front passengers. When at full passenger capacity, the Silverado LT Double Cab can feel a little cramped in the rear seats in terms of legroom, especially compared to the Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab. Looking at the feature list, we see a decent number of features brought on with the LT Double Cab similar to its competitor, adding in keyless entry, LED lighting, and a rear-locking tailgate. The Chevy Silverado LT Double Cab is well outfitted overall but misses out in some spots compared to the Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab.


Overall we have to pick the 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn Quad Cab has the superior pick when compared to the similarly outfitted and equipped 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab. Ram has specialized in building pickup trucks that are ready to work the toughest tasks, offering better tow capacities and impressive power outputs. The interior of the Quad Cab is also spacious, offering more legroom than its competitor and providing ample storage while offered to be outfitted with segment-exclusive features, such as the 12-inch touchscreen display.
