As Car and Driver magazine puts it, the Ram 3500 delivers the “best ride in the HD class” and you can “dress it to the nines,” which is something that Chevrolet cannot claim. You can test-drive the new Ram 3500 today, and we have specials for Amarillo customers who want to either finance or lease.

Cab-and-bed combinations have to be a focal point of any 2021 Ram 3500 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD comparison, and perhaps unsurprisingly, both automakers offer a similar lineup. Both offer a traditional two-door cab attached to an 8-foot bed. You also have the option of a four-door extended cab, which is paired with the 8-foot bed and, optionally in the case of the Ram, with a 6-foot-4-inch bed. Both brands also make a larger extended cab. Ram pairs it with the 6-foot-4-inch bed, and Chevrolet gives you the option of either its long bed or a bed that measures about 6 feet 10 inches. Ram and Chevrolet both offer a number of exterior personalization options, such as various wheel sizes, multifunction tailgates, side steps, bed liners, cargo lighting, cargo management and so forth.
The regular cabs can seat up to three. The extended cabs can set either five or six depending on the trim level and your choice of front seating. The front seating area is similar whether you opt for a traditional or extended cab and is one of the only interior aspects where the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has an advantage. It offers 44.53 inches of front legroom as opposed to 40.9 inches in the Ram. The crew cabs both offer more than 43 inches of rear legroom, but the difference between the smaller extended cabs is dramatic. Ram offers 40.2 inches whereas Chevrolet manages just 35.24. As mentioned in the opener, the Ram 3500 has a significant advantage when it comes to ride comfort, and this is true even if you opt for the base Tradesman, and we offer specials to Amarillo drivers for that model. There is also a dramatic difference in the cabin quality. According to Car and Driver, the Ram 3500 excels with a clean, modern design that accentuates premium materials and is unmatched in comfort and detailing.
