If you’re on the hunt for a new full-size pickup truck to help you out on Petoskey jobs, you’re probably interested in comparing the 2019 RAM 1500 and the Ford F-150. Most shoppers do, considering both models are household names with dedicated followings. When you put them head-to-head, we’re confident you’ll quickly see just how much the new RAM 1500 can do for you in terms of engine performance, towing power, and interior tech features. Explore the 2019 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 with us, below!

F-150 or RAM 1500: Performance & Fuel-Efficiency

You’ll have the luxury of choosing from a V6 or V8 engine with both of these full-size pickups, along with a smooth-shifting transmission, but which one has the raw power you need for commuting to Indian River? Explore their specs in detail, below:

  • F-150 Engines: If you were to choose an F-150, your engine options would range from a 250-hp 3.0L turbo-diesel engine to a 450-hp 3.5L twin-turbo or a 395-hp 5.0L V8 engine.
  • Ram 1500 Engines: On the RAM 1500, the standard engine is a 305-hp 3.6L V6, or you can upgrade to a 395-hp 5.7L V8, as well as a mild hybrid version of the V8.

The F-150 is available with a 6- or 10-speed automatic transmission, while the RAM 1500 offers a nice middle ground with a standard 8-speed automatic across all engine options.

F-150 or RAM 1500: Towing

When you’re shopping for tow cars for sale, the RAM 1500 is an optimal choice, offering Best-in-Class V8 Towing*. You’ll be able to haul up to 12,750 pounds when your RAM 1500 is fitted with the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. When the F-150 is equipped with its own 5.0L V8, it’s only capable of towing up to 11,600 pounds. You can increase the F-150 towing capacity to 13,000 pounds with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6, but when you consider the bigger picture of all that the RAM has to offer, this isn’t a significant increase.
