  • Performance

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado is without any question one of the highest performance pickup trucks in its class. Even the dominating Ford F-150 fears its constant advancement. With a 4.6-liter V6 engine, a 5.3-liter V8 engine, and a 6.2-liter V8 engine and a max horsepower of 420hp, the Silverado commands a breathtaking amount of towing potential at 12,500 pounds. All around this truck is tough to beat when it comes to having a high-performance level that works ideally for a pickup design.

    2018 Honda Ridgeline

    The only engine offered for the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is a 280 hp 3.6L V6 engine. This gives the Ridgeline a fairly weak towing potential of only 5,000 pounds, which is less than some SUVs. What also doesn’t help this truck is the fact that it also only offers the heavier crew cab design which isn’t ideal for towing purposes. All together when it comes to performance it is simply and clearly outclassed by the powerful and versatile 2018 Chevrolet Silverado.

  • Safety

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado has been able to put much of the focus on safety features geared towards preventing an accident in the first place, though it does still have an extensive airbag system as well as a “cage” frame for the vehicle in the case that a crash does still occur. However, these preventative features are impressive ones, such as a lane keep assist that will actually alert the driver if they veer too close to the other lane, as well as front and rear park assist, a rearview camera, and forward collision alert and automatic braking.
    But most impressive of all, perhaps, is their Teen Driver system, designed for new drivers first embarking out onto the road. It works by giving warnings to new drivers that are both audible as well as visual if the driver exceeds a predetermined speed limit. It also prevents injury and dangerous collisions by muting all audio systems if the passengers in the vehicle are not properly restrained by their seatbelts. This impressive technology will even provide a report card for the teen or new driver, allowing them to see their progress on the road, as well as what they can still work on. For many parents, this system has been hugely important and influential in their teen’s driving prowess. It also allows parents a good deal of control over the situation, making many feel much more safely about letting their teen get behind the wheel for the first time.

    2018 Honda Ridgeline

    The 2018 Honda Ridgeline also has some impressive features dedicated to preventing an accident or a more severe crash. Very similar to the forward collision alert in the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, the collision mitigation braking system is designed to alert the driver and even brake itself in the event that a detected collision is imminent. The road departure mitigation system is also very useful, as it helps drivers to stay in the lane that they are supposed to be in, preventing them from veering off the road or into another lane. Adaptive cruise control makes long stretches of highway driving all the easier (as well as safer, adapting to the conditions of the road in a way that other cruise control systems are not able to do). Finally, a lane keeping assist system further helps to keep drivers, both new and old pros, where they belong on the road.

  • Technology

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado has long been considered a pioneering force in the world of trucks. When it comes to technology, it is no different. With features such as both Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado allows for a high standard of phone connectivity. No matter what type of smartphone you might have, you will be able to sync it up to your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado easily. This connectivity will allow you to access many of the features already utilized on your phone, such as practical features like your calendar, address book, and navigational system. On top of this, you will also be able to connect with ease to your music library, a key factor in long (sometimes even cross country) drives.
    On top of this, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado includes 4G LTE WIFI as part of the standard package for the truck. This WiFi is perfect for those looking to work on the go and in need of connectivity. WiFi can also be great for traveling with a number of people, such as your children, and can significantly improve your overall driving experience.

    2018 Honda Ridgeline

    The 2018 Honda Ridgeline also has a number of impressive features in the realm of technology, such as the Honda Smart system which incorporates not only the use of a rearview camera but of remote keyless entry as well, a feature of convenience that many have come to rely upon. The remote engine start is another great feature, allowing the driver of the car to start their truck ahead of entering it, allowing it to cool down or warm up in conditions of extreme weather as is experienced by much of the country throughout the cycle of the seasons. Overall, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline has enough features to satisfy most drivers, but without available WIFI tech-savvy drivers should look to the Silverado instead.
