2018 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado


In the pickup truck segment, the 2018 Ram 1500 and 2018 Chevrolet Silverado are clear standouts. They both offer classic design and the kind of performance options truck enthusiasts love. But while few can compare to them, how do they compare to each other? We put them head-to-head to find out.

Style & Power

If you want a truck that’s sure to turn heads, the 2018 Ram 1500 is the model for you. Its bold and iconic exterior design exudes an effortless cool, thanks to its dramatic grille and streamlined body. And it has the performance to match—its standard engine delivers an impressive 305 hp performance, handily outpacing the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado’s 285 hp engine.

The 1500 even gets slightly better mileage than the Silverado, with an EPA-estimated 25 MPG highway compared to the Chevy’s 24 MPG highway. Marry that power and efficiency with the 1500’s effortlessly smooth 8-speed transmission, and you have an experience that the Silverado, with its weaker engine and 6-speed transmission, just can’t match.

Value & Warranty

In addition to having the better drive, the 2018 Ram 1500 is also a better value than the 2018 Chevy Silverado. The Ram has a starting MSRP of $27,095, well under the Silverado’s starting MSRP of $28,285. In addition, the Ram offers an unsurpassed 5-year/100,000-mile diesel powertrain limited warranty with the 1500, so you can trust that your truck will be in good hands for years to come.
