2023 RAM 2500 HD Rebel vs Competition!

Since its release other pickup trucks like Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, and F-250 Tremor have been up in their game of towing capabilities with off-roading. Meanwhile, Silverado has been a top contender for 2023 RAM 2500 HD Rebel.

Starting at an MSRP of $46,495, Silverado 2500 HD does offer you a cheaper option but it is only for the standard 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that goes up to 401 hp with 464 lb-ft of torque. The diesel option does compete well with the RAM 2500 HD.

2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD

MSRP of $53,000

6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 (with standard 6.6-liter V8 Gas)

445 hp / 910 lb-ft of torque

10-speed automatic (with standard 6-speed automatic)

8-inches infotainment screen

20-inches wheels

What lacks is the interior, as for the Silverado 2500 HD it comes with an 8-inches infotainment system whereas RAM has an extra 4-inches long. The Chevy doesn’t include seat options as well as the suspension upgrade unlike the RAM 2500 HD.

Ford-250 Tremor is almost the same as the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, this concludes how RAM does it more either with its towing, off-road capabilities or its luxurious driving experience.
