January 31st, 2018 by

The 2018 RAM 1500.

While the Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 are busy trying to outduel each other in the truck segment, the RAM 1500 has been quietly changing the game altogether. So how does this truck stack up against the industry leaders? The answer might surprise you.

RAM 1500 vs. Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150

It’s two against one in this comparison, but the RAM 1500 nevertheless holds its ground. For starters, the RAM 1500 comes equipped with a lower MSRP than both of its competitors and is coupled with a fuel efficiency that’s better than the Silverado and equal to that of the F-150. And who doesn’t like to pay less for more?

The RAM 1500 has also made efficient use of its space, sporting a body that is narrower than both other trucks and producing a tighter turning diameter as a result. But despite the more compact design, the RAM actually displays more hip room and a wider cargo box.

Of course, a smaller look doesn’t have to mean smaller performance. Under the hood, the 395 horsepower generated from the RAM 1500 bests both the Silverado and the F-150.  

More affordable. More driveable. More powerful. That’s the difference between the RAM 1500 and the rest.

But don’t just take our word for it. According to IHS Markit, RAM displayed the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup. And Consumer Guide gave the 2017 RAM its Best Buy award for the fifth consecutive year.

Considering all that the RAM 1500 has to offer, that attention seems well deserved. A work horse under the hood and a show pony inside, the RAM features the available Uconnect® system with an 8.4” touchscreen for all your office and entertainment needs. Real wood accents and customizable displays add to the luxury experience you’ll find in a RAM 1500.

For convenience sake, the RAM offers keyless entry, a rear backup camera, and a front and rear park assist system. And when it comes to safety, RAM drivers and passengers are protected by Electronic Stability Control, side curtain airbags, and more.
