2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

When you are in the market for a new vehicle, it can be difficult to find the right model for you when there are so many that appear similar to choose from. When you are looking at trucks, it can be especially difficult because there are so many variables involved. That is why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because it allows you to take two models that appear similar on the surface and closely examine their differences to determine which one will be a better fit for your needs. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. While the Silverado has a larger engine equipped in it, the Ram 1500 has more horsepower and more convenience features, all at a lower price point, making it the better option for drivers to choose. The 2018 Ram 1500 offers seating for three passengers, and has available features like a CD player, voice recognition, a compass, parking assist technology, front fog lights and a remote starting system. None of these features are available on the Silverado's base trim. Let's take a closer look at some of the key differences between these two models.
