Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500

The two top trucks available right now are inarguably the Ford F-150 and RAM 1500. But is one superior to the other? Compare the Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 so you can decide for yourself.

Towing

If you’re looking for a pickup truck that tows more than the Ford F-150, you won’t find it, as it’s a class leader. When it is properly equipped, you’ll be able to tow up to 14,000 pounds.

You can also get several towing features, including dynamic hitch assist and trailer sway control. The best the RAM 1500 can do is a tow rating of 12,750 pounds.

Hauling

The Ford F-150 is also a class leader when it comes to hauling. It offers a maximum payload of 3,325 pounds. The RAM 1500 also can’t compete in this area, as it can only haul up to 2,300 pounds.

Safety

Whether you’ll be using your Ford F-150 for your family or on the job – or both – you’ll be glad to know that it is designed to keep everybody safe. It comes with numerous standard safety features, including:

  • Forward collision warning
  • A rearview camera
  • Forward automatic emergency braking
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Curve control

You can also get several more components, such as a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring.

The RAM 1500 only really comes with one advanced safety feature on its base trim: a rearview camera. If you want any of the others that are standard with the Ford F-150, you would need to upgrade.

It’s pretty clear that in these three areas, the Ford F-150 is the better truck. If you’d like to see how it performs out on the road, just come down to Woodhouse Ford of Blair for a test drive.
