2020 RAM1500 Big Horn Quad Cab Power & Handling

Coming standard is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine with eTorque. The eTorque system uses a 48-volt battery pack and a motor-generator to add torque in certain situations, while also improving the RAM's fuel economy. The system also speeds up the trucks stop/start system. There is a 5.7L HEMI V8 available with or without the eTorque. New to the RAM engine lineup, is a diesel-powered 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. All engines connect to an eight-speed automatic transmission and come with either rear-wheel or four-wheel-drive. When fully equipped, the RAM 1500 Big Horn can haul an astounding 12,560 pounds.

2020 ChevroletSilverado LT Double Cab Power & Handling

The Silverado LT comes with a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 310 horsepower and connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine uses two separate systems to help with fuel efficiency. The first is a simple cylinder shut-off system, and the second is a Dynamic Fuel Management System that is designed to fine-tune the balance between efficiency and horsepower demand, which allows the engine to operate between two and eight cylinders, within seventeen different patterns. These two systems allow the Silverado LT to get up to 23 mpg with front-wheel drive, which is impressive but less than what the eTorque provides for the RAM.
