When trying to decide between getting the Ford F-150 or Ram 1500, it’s important to really get to know each option and what they deliver in terms of engine performance, towing capability, and features. So, discover what each of these vehicles has to offer thanks to this handy guide from the experts at Outten CDJR, and then head to our Hamburg dealership when you think you know the vehicle you want.

Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Performance

When you buy a new Ford F-150 or Ram 1500, both models give drivers the option of equipping a V6 or V8 engine. However, while they are similar, one truck comes out ahead in terms of performance:

  • Ram 1500 Engines: The Ram 1500 is well-known for having great fuel economy, and the 2019 model is no exception thanks to its mild hybrid V8 engine system. You can also opt for the best performance when equipping the optional 5.7L 395-hp V8 engine.
  • F-150 Engines: The F-150 comes available with six engine options, with one that delivers 450 hp as well as a 5.0L 395-hp V8 engine.
  • Transmissions: In terms of their transmissions, the standard Ram 1500 is equipped with an 8-speed automatic, while the F-150 is standardly outfitted with a 6-speed automatic but has an available 10-speed automatic as well.
  • Fuel Economy Ratings: Both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 provides Schuylkill Haven drivers with 20 MPG for city driving, while the F-150 offers 26 MPG highway, and the Ram 1500 delivers 25 MPG highway.

Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Towing Capability

The Ram 1500 delivers the best-in-class V8 towing capability by maxing out at 12,750 pounds when equipped with its 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. This bests the F-150’s V8 production, which maxes out at 11,600. However, when the F-150 is outfitted with its 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, it barely beats the Ram 1500 with a 13,000-pound maximum capacity.

Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Features

So far, both models have been going head-to-head in close battles, but we really think the Ram 1500 outshines its competition in terms of features. Drivers in Leesport will love these additional standard features that the Ford F-150 doesn’t have in its base offering:

  • Six-speaker sound system
  • Bluetooth® connectivity
  • Uconnect® infotainment system
  • Voice recognition
  • One-touch up driver and passenger windows
  • USB ports
  • Proximity key
  • Power rear windows
  • Adjustable rear seat head restraints
  • Cruise control
