Class-exclusive engine options, class-exclusive features, and class-leading efficiency separate the 2016 Ram 1500 from rank-and-file rivals like the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. Drivers from Maple Creek, Brooks, and Medicine Hat are already familiar with the Ram 1500 — it’s the longest-lasting line of pickups in the country — but the 2016 model has taken things even further.
 

Available Eco-Diesel Power

The 2016 Ram 1500 is the only light truck in the industry that is able to offer diesel power for drivers from Maple Creek, Brooks, and Medicine Hat.

Named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines two years in a row, the class-exclusive 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is able to deliver up to an impressive 240 hp alongside a class-leading 420 lb-ft of low-end torque. Class-leading power isn’t all — you’ll be able to benefit from best-in-class fuel economy ratings of up to 11.3 L/100 km in the city and a stunning 8 L/100 km on the highway. Reliability is similarly unrivalled: recommended oil change intervals of up to 16,000 km serve to lower your total operating costs.

The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado offers nothing that comes close. At best, you’ll make up to 13.5 L/100 km in the city and 10 L/100 km on the highway, and that’s with the truck’s least powerful engine.

Off-Road Distinction

If you might ever need to head off-road, the 2016 Ram 1500 is going to serve you better than the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. It has been named Four Wheeler’s 2016 Pickup Truck of the Year and the 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge winner for just that reason, and it even faced down both the 2016 Ford F-150 and the Silverado itself on a grueling test drive through California and Arizona to become Motor Trend’s Half-Ton Shootout Winner.

A quick look at the vehicle’s off-road features explains its dominating capability. Drivers will be able to depend on a 4-wheel drive system with two settings: 4-HI for pulling power and slippery roads or 4-LO for a 2.64:1 gear reduction to help climb tricky obstacles.

Superior Cargo Management

The Ram 1500’s segment-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System unquestionably dominates the competition when it comes to cargo-carrying capability. Offering a remotely lockable and completely weatherproof box with handy LED lighting to let you find everything in the dark, it’s the perfect match for a work-ready machine like the 2016 Ram 1500.

While the RamBox takes your tools and larger items, the interior of the 2016 Ram 1500 outstrips the competition in terms of interior cargo space. In fact, you’ll be able to take advantage of best-in-class cargo versatility thanks to the following innovative storage solutions:

  • Rear Under-Seat Storage Bins
  • Fold-Flat Load Floor System
  • Behind-the-Seat Storage
  • Class-Exclusive In-Floor Storage

Wherever you need to stow your load, it’ll be easier in the 2016 Ram 1500 than in the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.
