Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150
Becoming more versatile by the year, full-size pickup trucks have become incredibly popular as all-around vehicles. In addition to their outstanding towing capability, trucks now include luxury features, decadent interiors, and an array of options for full customization. Two class leaders in the category are the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150.
Drivers in Somerset and New Bedford can find out more with our comprehensive Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150 comparison.
Both the Ram 1500 and the F-150 offer a range of trim levels, starting with a purpose-built, practical base model and moving up to a full-on luxury truck. The vehicles also offer exceptional space and comfort for passengers, with upmarket upholstery options available. The Ram offers a little more variety with vinyl, cloth, leather, or premium leather upholstery selections, whereas the F-150 only offers cloth, vinyl, and leather.
For cargo space, the F-150 can be configured with a 5-foot 6-inch bed, a 6-foot 6-inch bed, and an 8-foot bed. The Ram 1500 has a 6-foot 4-inch and a 5-foot 7-inch bed, and it offers the Ram Bins storage system, which has cargo storage located on the floor of the cabin, and the RamBox®, which has storage cubbies located along the sides of the truck bed. These features are helpful for storing valuable cargo safely and securely.
The Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 have many features available throughout the trim levels, but the Ram offers more value with each model. Beginning with a rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen, and three USB ports, the Ram offers such desirable features as wireless device charging, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system, and upgraded Uconnect® systems. An 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen is available, which is the largest in the class, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration are included. The F-150 comes with a rearview camera and a basic radio at the entry level.
Both vehicles come with a full complement of standard safety equipment, such as airbags and anti-lock brakes. Advanced safety features are available as well, such as Blind-Spot Monitoring, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Park Assist.
The Ram and the F-150 have a range of powertrain options to suit your needs. The F-150 comes with a 3.3-liter V6 and has a twin-turbo V6 and a 5.0-liter V8 available. The Ram offers a 3.6-liter V6 and a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI®. Both are standard in rear-wheel drive and offer 4-wheel drive.
When it comes to handling, it’s tough to match the Ram. In addition to its remarkable composure and smooth ride, it can also be equipped with an air suspension that turns it into a luxury driving experience. The F-150 handles adequately, but lacks a comparable feature.
