2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2018 RAM 1500

Half-ton trucks come under more scrutiny than most vehicles, and drivers often end up choosing between the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the 2018 RAM 1500. That means balancing up the need for:

  • 12,500 lbs. of towing

  • 2,250 lbs. of payload

  • Best-in-Class 29 Highway MPG

  • 754 Highway Driving Range

  • Class-Exclusive Automatic Locking Rear Differential

  • Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension

Choosing between Chevy and RAM means enjoying some of those features while sacrificing others, so the debate demands your attention.
