Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500

  • Engine Capabilities: The RAM model offers a base V6 option and includes availability for two variations of a V8 HEMI but drivers who decide that the Ford F-150 will have numerous options to select when it comes to their powertrain. Ford provides access to six different engine packages including the muscular 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 and the durable 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 as well as a 5.0-liter V8 engine choice.
  • Tough Foundation: Both models incorporate the addition of aluminum-alloy frames which creates extremely tough and durable while alleviating the weight and increasing the towing and hauling capabilities. The RAM 1500 still uses a portion of steel for its frame, while the Ford F-150 has forgone much of that in favor of aluminum.
  • Hauling Ability: The Ford truck leaves its competition in the dust when it comes to towing capacity. The F-150 achieves up to 13,200 pounds of maximum weight, compared to the 12,750 pounds that the RAM 1500 can manage.
  • Fuel Conservation: A higher fuel economy is not something you would expect to achieve when you purchase a truck but you don't have to worry with the Ford F-150. The RAM 1500 will only net you approximately 15 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway while the Ford F-150 garnishes 20 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Depending on your engine choice, you can increase those numbers to even higher efficiencies.
  • Keep Safe with Available Safety Equipment: Safety is important no matter which truck or vehicle you choose to go with. The Ford model allows you access to standard equipment like a Rear-View Camera with Dynamic and optional access to the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, which the RAM truck does not offer. Ford goes above and beyond what other trucks can offer to keep their passengers safe.
  • Choosing the Right Trim: When it comes time to select the features and luxuries that you prefer, the Ford F-150 offers seven distinct trim levels, one more than you can find in the RAM lineup. With choices between the F-150 XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch®, Platinum, Limited and Raptor, you'll be able to find a model that suits your driving needs.
