When you are looking for a new truck, you might feel overwhelmed by all of the options available to you on the market. With so many models that look similar, it's hard to determine which one will provide the features and capabilities you are looking for. That's why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because they allow you to put two models up side by side to examine their differences and decide which one will be better for you. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2019 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Chevy Silverado.
While the Silverado is available at a lower starting price point, the Ram 1500 offers more power under the hood, more space inside, and more comfort and convenience features for passengers to enjoy, making it the better option overall for most consumers. Let's take a closer look at some of the key features and differences between the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado.
Not only does the Ram 1500 have more powerful engine options for drivers to choose from, but their engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual, which provides a more responsive and smooth ride than the 6-speed automatic with overdrive and auto-manual transmission in the Silverado. The Ram 1500 also has a higher maximum trailer weight, maxing out at 6,730 pounds, compared to a 6,000 pound-limit in the Silverado.
The Ram 1500 has a variety of comfort and convenience features that aren't available in the Silverado. These features include an available CD player, standard voice recognition, standard compass, standard USB ports, standard proximity key and keyless access system, available parking assist technology, and available front fog lights. The Chevy Silverado does not have any of these features available on its base trim.
