While the Silverado’s V8 only produces 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, the RAM’s HEMI engine goes the extra mile with a more impressive 383 horsepower and even more impressive 400 lb-ft of torque.
While the Silverado 3500HD LTZ offers an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 6-speaker audio system, and leather-wrapped steering wheel, the RAM 3500 Laramie offers the same perks and more.

Plus, the RAM 3500 comes equipped with even more features including a Premium 7-inch customizable in-cluster display centre and a Leather-faced heated and ventilated 40/20/40 front bench seat.
