When comparing full-sized pickup trucks, you have to go beyond the numbers.


At Jack Burford Chevrolet, we believe that the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the best truck in Eastern Kentucky. It can do the work, the shopping and go out for a long drive afterward. The Silverado retains more loyal customers than any pickup – period. That’s Chevrolet truck owners keep their pickups for longer than the next brand.


Still, it all comes down to the numbers. Here is a sample of those numbers when comparing our Silverado with one of its rivals - the Ram 1500.

Looking at this comparison, there is a lot more to consider between these two strong competitors:


  • Longer wheelbase for better ride quality and payload management
  • Better city fuel economy
  • Larger maximum Payload and Towing capacity when equipped with the NHT Maximum Towing Package
  • The most connected pickup in the business – with OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
  • Offers OnStar Crash Response, among other safety features keeping the Silverado safe.
  • Chevrolet offers a simplified choice of trims with specific packages to add on for evern better value.


There is another thing to consider: overall value. Value is not just about price, but what the Silverado offers compared to the Ram 1500. Take everything said here for one thing: The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the best choice of pickup in Eastern Kentucky!
