For heavy-duty work, you need a heavy-duty truck. Here at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM-Bowie, we want to set you up with the best possible truck for all your needs, but what about the competition? Today we’ll take a look at a head-to-head matchup of two iconic American trucks: the RAM 1500 vs. the Ford F-150.
Power Under the Hood & Across the Frame
Let’s start at the engine, the beating heart of any full-size truck. The Ford F-150 can max out to 400-hp 3.5-Liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6, but the RAM 1500’s biggest available 395-hp 5.7-Liter V8 gives the Ford a run for its money.
The RAM 1500’s superior suspension makes it the more comfortable option when cruising the backroads.
Comfort & Interior
While both the Ford F-150 and the RAM 1500 have interior seats and dashboard surfaces made from similar high-quality materials, the RAM 1500 bests the Ford when it comes to sheer style.
An intuitive mix of analog and digital instruments complement the bigger and better-set side mirrors. Also, the RAM 1500 offers a head up display for a more immersive driving experience, which the Ford F-150 lacks.
Power Tailgate Features
The modern generation of work trucks often feature innovative tailgate features, and both the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 are no exception. The Ford F-150’s power tailgate is less than intuitive, and far too automated.
The RAM 1500, on the other hand, features an available Multi-Function Tailgate, which can open horizontally. A 60/40 split in the door allows more flexibility when loading cargo, as you can keep a big chunk of the door closed if needed.
