The Legendary Ford F-150 Stands Out in the Crowd

How does the new 2022 Ford F-150 compare to its light-duty truck competitors

When you've been in the new Ford sales business for as long as we have here at Wilson Motors, you get to know quite a bit about what keeps guests coming back year after year. And while our new Ford cars and SUVs certainly make compelling value proposition, it's our new Ford trucks that keep folks from Corvallis to Albany, OR coming back year after year. Our Ford F-Series pickups have been America's best-selling pickup truck brand for the better part of a century now, and a big part of its appeal is the new Ford F-150.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500


Ford F-150

RAM 1500

This half-ton pickup has been a leader in the market for years now, and with recent updates, it's likely to continue to be so for years to come. However, while the new Ford F-150 is undoubtedly the most popular model in the light-duty truck market, it's not without close rivals like the new Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500. And if you're wondering which one is the best fit for your lifestyle, we've prepared a competitive comparison just for you here at Wilson Motors.

The Ford F-150 vs. the Ram 1500

When it comes to comparing new pickup trucks, the best place to start the comparison is under the hood. Now, both the new Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 have exceptional powertrain options, with gasoline and diesel engine options available across their trim ranges. However, if there's one key difference between the powertrain options available to both models, it's in the hybrid options. The new Ram 1500 makes a middling attempt at incorporating hybrid technology into its portfolio, tacking a mild hybrid eTorque system to two of its engine options. However, the new Ford F-150 goes all out with the new PowerBoost™ full hybrid powertrain. Not only does it offer much more power than the eTorque system, but is also allows you to take advantage of Pro Power Onboard™, an onboard generator for everything from power tools to camping gear and much more.

Plus, if you're looking for even greater efficiency, you can opt for the newly electrified Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck. The Ram 1500 doesn't have any electrified models in its powertrain lineup.

The Ford F-150 vs. the Chevy Silverado 1500

Whether it's a toy hauler, livestock trailer, or even a boat or full-sized camper, towing is one of the best things you can do with a new pickup truck. And when it comes to towing power, the new Ford F-150 has the new Chevy Silverado 1500 handily beat. A properly equipped Ford F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds, while the new Chevy Silverado 1500 can only tow up to 13,300 pounds.

On top of its towing power, the new Ford F-150 has one more significant edge on the new Chevy Silverado 1500. While the new Chevy Silverado 1500 has a conventional steel body, the new Ford F-150 has a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body which is not only lighter than conventional steel, but also impervious to long-term maintenance concerns like body rust.
