Dodge RAM VS Ford F150
Posted on December 3, 2020
Pickup trucks have always been an important part of the automotive industry. Their tough exterior and powerful engines make them perfect for work and for play. Over the year, the pickup truck has evolved to be even more versatile and convenient than ever before. One of the most popular trucks in the light-duty segment is the Ram 1500. This truck has been redesigned this year to feature a more stunning exterior as well as a luxurious and versatile interior. To show you just how impressive this truck really is, we have compared it to another popular pickup, the Ford F-150, to see how the Ram stacks up against the competition.
Both the Ram and the F-150 look similar in design. However, the Ram was specifically designed to be more than just a nice-looking truck. The Ram 1500 is built using a high-strength steel frame that is both lighter and longer than the previous design and also helps to improve durability. The Ram also features a large chrome grille that has the word "RAM" boldly written across the centre to help give it a more aggressive look. Overall, the exterior of the Ram has managed to look both rugged and sophisticated at the same time.
Interior Comfort Features
Both of these trucks have a spacious interior that can comfortably fit up to six people, while also providing plenty of flat areas to accommodate laptops and other devices to make a portable office. The Ram, however, has a more dynamic interior that features a wider range of high-tech features. For instance, the Ram offers an available 12-inch touchscreen infotainment display that comes with Bluetooth connectivity options as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Ram also offers available leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel to give the interior a whole new level of luxury.
Both trucks come with a full line of standard safety features including radar cruise control, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking. Some of the other standard safety features that come on the Ram 1500 include:
- 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Brake Assist
- Electric Parking Brake
- Advanced Airbag System including six airbags
- Electronic Stability Control with Ready Alert Braking
- Electronic Roll Mitigation
- Hill Start Assist
- Trailer Sway Control
- Traction Control
- Rain Brake Support
Power and Performance
The F-150 and the Ram offer a wide range of engines to choose from to ensure that each driver is able to have enough power to fit their individual needs. The Ram comes standard with a 3.6-litre V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque and is able to tow up to 7,730 pounds. If you are looking for a little more power, the iconic 5.7-litre HEMI V8 delivers an impressive 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 12,750 pounds. The Ram also offers a diesel engine option. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine delivers 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque that is able to tow up to 12,560 pounds.
