2018 RAM 1500 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


Start from the Inside

When looking at two impressive pickup trucks, such as the 2018 RAM 1500 vs. Chevrolet Silverado, choosing between the two can be difficult, but there are a few major differences to help you decide. Starting from the inside, the 2018 RAM 1500 and 2018 Chevrolet Silverado both come with USB compatibility, as well as a touchscreen. However, the RAM 1500 packs several additional optional interior features, including a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen command center with:

  • Voice command and hands-free calling capabilities
  • SiriusXM All Access Package with an included one-year trial
  • Uconnect 8.4 NAV—a navigation system that incorporates 3D terrain maps

Both the Chevrolet Silverado and RAM 1500 have a variety of interior features, but the new RAM 1500 offers its features in one handy package.

Customizable Design & Comfort

The 2018 RAM 1500 proves itself to be the more comfortable vehicle across all trim levels, thanks to its versatility. Both pickup trucks offer a range of comfort features, especially at the higher trim levels, such as leather upholstery and wooden paneling that you might expect to find in a luxury vehicle. The RAM 1500, though, provides drivers with a wide range of options to choose from. Offered in over 22 colors, the RAM 1500 lets you customize based on your preferences.


Although the RAM 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 both offer impressive performance, the 2018 RAM 1500 simply provides options not available on the Chevrolet Silverado. Even at the base level, the 2018 RAM 1500 comes with a V8 engine that generates 305 hp compared to the Silverado, which generates 285 hp with its base V6 engine. Both trucks offer several additional engine options, but only the 2018 RAM 1500 offers diesel options.
