You’ll have no shortage of choices when you shop for your next full-size pickup truck, but one choice stands tall and towers over the field. The new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — available at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor in Maine — outsmarts, outperforms, and outstyles competitors like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. Here’s how the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 sets itself apart and ahead of its competition.
Chevy wants more drivers to be able to enjoy their weekends however they see fit, which is why these in-demand trucks are quite a bit more affordable than their Ford F-150 counterparts. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2 costs about $8,000 less at MSRP than the Ford F-150 Raptor. The dazzling High Country is over $10,000 more affordable than an F-150 Platinum. Talk about getting more bang for your buck!
Speaking of the everyday versatility of the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500, its impressive spaciousness makes it a great choice for growing families in Bangor, Maine. Crew Cab and Double Cab trucks can seat up to six people, which means the Silverado 1500 can accommodate more passengers than most two-row crossovers. Plus, you get 43 inches of front headroom and 44.5 inches of front legroom; those are best-in-class measurements and considerably better than the Ford F-150.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150 both offer a robust suite of standard and available technologies, but Chevy once again gains the edge in key areas. You’ll find more abundant tech features offered on the Silverado 1500.
Models like the Silverado LTZ and High Country come with eight cameras and up to 14 different camera views, including a unique transparent trailer view that simplifies hauling. LT trucks and up come with a 13.4-inch-diagonal touch screen — larger than the F-150’s 12-inch display — as well as Google built-in for easier access to features like Google Assistant and Google Maps.
Value is always a huge consideration when you’re shopping for a new vehicle, and there’s no denying that Chevy has Ram’s number when you’re crunching the numbers. The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is more than $2,500 more affordable at recommended base-model price, and you see more separation the higher you climb. You’ll pay around $3,000 less for the ultra-premium High Country than you would for the Ram 1500 Limited, and the rugged ZR2 costs around $26,000 less than the Ram TRX. Yes, that’s correct — the Ram TRX costs around $100,000!
If you plan on using your next new half-ton pickup to do some heavy hauling, you’ll have better luck with the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Not only do you get perks like 14 available camera views and an in-vehicle Trailering App, you’ll be able to tow a maximum of 13,300 pounds. That’s a full 550 pounds more than the best Ram 1500 can muster.
Chevrolet also helps you do more with your Silverado 1500 thanks to Durabed, the most spacious and functional truck bed in its class. With 89.1 cubic feet of standard cargo volume, Durabed makes the Silverado 1500 more spacious than the Ram 1500, Ford F-150, or any other truck in the game. And the Silverado 1500 out-flexes the Ram 1500 with its six-function Multi-Flex Tailgate, which offers multiple load stop settings, a full-width step, and an inner-gate work surface.
If you want to experience the astounding feeling of a truck that can drive itself, you won’t get it from the 2024 Ram 1500. Chevrolet offers the 2024 Silverado 1500 with Super Cruise™, the world’s first truly hands-free driving feature which works on more than 400,000 miles of roads across North America. Even better, Super Cruise™ can even work when you have a trailer attached, helping take the stress out of your next New England coastal adventure.
There’s no denying that the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the best vehicles on the road today, let alone one of the best in its class.
