Last month, GM Authority exclusively reported how the interiors of the all-new 2019-and-newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are a bit behind the curve when compared to direct competition from the equally new Ram 1500. Long story short, GM designed the interiors with various improvements, the focus groups agreed, and the interior remains totally functional for a pickup, with some improvements and upgrades. And yet, many continue to repeat the same line over and over again – the Silverado interior doesn’t match up all that well against the latest Ram 1500. So we decided to put the theory to the test with a direct side-by-side visual comparison.
To keep things simple, we’ve included a table breakdown showing which Silverado trim levels correspond with which Ram trim levels. Then we put it all on display in a series of side-by-side photos for easy comparison, using the base interiors for each trim level. Finally, we end with the available color combos offered by both the Silverado interior and Ram 1500 cabin.
So, without further ado, let’s dive right in.

There you have it, folks. Obviously photos only tell so much of the story, compared to actually sitting inside the vehicles, looking at the cabins and touching the materials. Even so, the pix do give us a pretty decent side-by-side comparo of what the Silverado interior is up against. Truth be told, there isn’t that much of a difference between the two until Limited trim and its huge, vertically-oriented screen. The Ram also executes a few details – such as the AC vents, HVAC controls, gear selector, and some stitching elements – in a flashier fashion. But arguably the biggest difference is the selection of interior colors, with the Ram offering notably more options in this regard.
