Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150


At a Glance: 1500 vs. F-150

You can count on trucks like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 for almost everything. They’re strong, dependable pickups that can help you hit the trails, get through rough weather, and carry lots of heavy cargo.

Which one of these iconic American trucks is the best fit for you, though? Findlay Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram put this Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150 comparison together to help truck lovers and business owners throughout Post Falls, Huetter, Pleasant View, and Hauser.

Performance: A True Power Player

The Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 are equipped with enough power to get you through the toughest driving conditions, tow a trailer, and handle a heavy payload. Each pickup also gives you options like hybrid technology and straight-up supercharged engines.

You’ll find more power under the hood of the Ram 1500, though. Its 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine makes your truck feel powerful with a whopping 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. With that kind of performance, it can reach up to 118 MPH speeds.

The Ford F-150 can’t come close to that kind of output. While its 3.5L High-Output EcoBoost® V6 engine offers an impressive 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, it can’t accelerate nearly as quickly—or trek through the same tough terrain—as the Ram.

Cargo: Multi-Function Tailgate

You can feel comfortable hitching a large trailer, some recreational vehicles, or a boat to both powerful trucks. The Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 even offer trailering features like rear back-up cameras, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection, and Trailer Sway Control. They even make it easy to back your cargo into place with Trailer Reverse Steering Control.

Feel free to load up the truck beds with a heavy payload, too. Each one is built with a strong frame and rests on a versatile suspension.

The Ram 1500 gives you more ways to load up the truck bed, though. First, it lets you get closer to your cargo with an available multifunction tailgate. This 60/40 split gate can open like a set of doors or drop down like a traditional tailgate.

You can even load up the walls of your truck bed, thanks to the available RamBox® Cargo Management System. These built-in storage compartments feature their own locks, so they’re a perfect spot to store tools and valuables. They even include their own drains, which makes it easy to rinse them out—or turn them into portable coolers!
