2018 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Shoppers looking for the best half ton truck will want to compare the 2018 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Ram and Chevy have long been top truck competitors, but for 2018, the well-reviewed Ram 1500 comes out ahead in these areas:

  • Higher base trim V6 horsepower
  • Available efficiency and torque of a diesel engine
  • Suspension and storage features that aren’t available in the Silverado

Exclusive Features

To start, let’s look at some of the unique features found in the Ram 1500:

  • Available Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension
  • Available RamBox Cargo Management
  • Standard 8-Speed TorqueFlite Automatic Transmission

While the Silverado 1500 can be equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it’s only available in specific models, but the Ram 1500 Torqueflite 8-speed is standard throughout the model line. None of those features are found in the Ford F-150 either.
