    If purchasing a new truck is on your radar, then the new 2018 Chevy Silverado vs. 2018 Ram 1500 have probably made it on your list. These two new truck models have a number of accolades to their name and have proven popular with consumers with their superior power and performance. We’ll take a look at both of these models – the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado vs. 2018 Ram 1500 – to determine which vehicle is the best truck to spend your money on.
    The Chevrolet Silverado model has been popular with consumers since it’s conception in 1999 and has essentially made it into the Truck Hall of Fame with its legacy of style, power, and capability. The newest 2018 Chevrolet Silverado continues that legacy with improved interior features, powerful new specs, and an aggressive exterior that’s emblematic of all Silverado models. From the engine to the towing capability, to the safety features, this is a car that has the utility and style that’ll last generations.

    The 2018 Ram 1500 has a luxurious interior and an aggressive exterior styling and prominent grille that Ram trucks are known for. With a more spacious exterior and a number of trim styles and engine options, this is going to be a close competition. However, with the advanced towing capacity on the 2018 Silverado and its safety and capability features that enhances utility, we think that the Silverado has the Ram 1500 beat hands down.

  • Features

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado includes a number of advanced connectivity and smart features that make it a true 21st-century truck model. The vehicle’s command center includes an 8-inch Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen that you can connect with any smart device.

Some new safety features include lane keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, rear vision camera, and front and rear park assist. The Silverado also includes Teen Driver technology, which encourages safe driving habits by alerting the driver if they’re surpassing the speed limit, and muting audio systems until the driver and passenger have buckled their seat belts. These connectivity and safety features make this a next-level vehicle currently on the truck market.

    2018 RAM 1500

    The connectivity features on the 2018 Ram 1500 include the available UConnect System, which is an 8.4 inch touch screen that dominates the command center of the vehicle. This UConnect System includes Apple CarPlay, Android Audio, and HD radio.
    As far as safety features, the Ram 1500 includes a Vehicle Finder, so you can locate your vehicle at any time. The vehicle also includes features like a rear view camera and a front and rear park assist system. All in all, stacked up next to one another in the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado vs. the 2018 Ram 1500 competition, the Silverado has the Ram beat in almost every category, from performance and capability, to smart and safety features.

  • Exterior

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The exterior of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado is classic and traditional, with an aggressive grille, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and of course that iconic Chevrolet emblem. With an 8-ft bed, available EZ lift and lower tailgate, and a high strength steel box floor, this is a vehicle that has the exterior style and utility that’ll keep you and your business, or you and your family, going strong.
    As far as extras for the exterior of the vehicle, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado comes decked out in bed mats, front and rear black molded splash guards, CornerStep rear bumper, tinted glass, and stylish chrome finishing and accents to give the vehicle a pristine and modern effect. With the traditional edge of the Chevrolet Silverado and some of the extra add-ons that truly make this car unique, this is a truck you’ll be happy to show off on the road.

    2018 RAM 1500

    As far as the exterior goes, these vehicles are pretty evenly matched. The 2018 Ram 1500 has an aggressive grille with the chrome Ram logo embossed on the front. The vehicle is traditional and familiar, with chrome accents to give it that modern and stylish aesthetic.
    The 2018 Ram 1500 includes a Keyless Enter ‘N Go key fob for a remote start, a tonneau cover to improve air movement over the body, and wheel to wheel side steps to make accessing the bed of the truck easier. Both models of trucks have classic exteriors that live up to their brand names. But with the steel body chassis and bed length of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, we think it has a little extra utility to give it an edge over the 2018 Ram 1500.

  • Performance

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    One of the advantages of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado is its optimal performance as a light duty pickup. Despite not being a heavy duty vehicle, this model can haul a massive 12,500 lbs and has the engine and power to back it up. With three available engines to choose from, ranging from 285 hp to 420 hp, and a max of 460 lb-ft of torque, this is a great utility vehicle for whatever your business or family needs may be.
    In addition, in order to make your hauling and towing requirements easier, the engineers at Chevrolet have included a number of smart capability features into the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado model that’ll improve your driving performance. With a tow/haul mode, StabiliTrak with trailer sway control, and hill start assist, this is a vehicle you know you can rely on. Chevrolet makes hauling heavy loads that much easier and ensures that any journey is a safe one.

    2018 RAM 1500

    The Ram 1500 has three available engines that get excellent gas mileage and range from 269 to 420 lb-ft of torque and 240 to 395 horsepower. While still laudable, this still doesn’t beat the impressive specs of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, which has higher performance capabilities in both regards. In addition, the 2018 Ram 1500 has a lower towing capacity at 10,150 lbs.
    However, the 2018 Ram 1500 has some similar smart capabilities as the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, including Hill Start Assist, Integrated Trailer Hitch – which seamlessly connects your truck to your trailer, and trailer sway control. The safety and capability features on this vehicle stand up next to the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, but as far as performance goes, the Chevrolet Silverado still has this Ram model beat out..
