Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500 Comparison

  • Whether it's the starting package or the top-of-the-line Limited edition, the F-150 will generally be priced lower than comparable editions and setups of the Ram 1500, giving you more wiggle room in your budget to add standalone options, accessories and special equipment.
  • Where your truck really counts is with its towing and hauling capabilities. The F-150 offers top-end ranges of around 14,000 pounds of towing capabilities in a specific setup, while it tops out for hauling up to 3,325 pounds. The 12,750-pound trailering rating and 2,320-pound max payload for the Ram 1500 are obviously less.
  • Finding the right setup of the F-150 is far easier than trying to configure the best fit in a Ram 1500. Ford's flagship full-sized pickup offers more cab styles, bed sizes and engine options than the relatively limited Ram 1500, so depending on the specific needs you have, you'll find an easier time configuring the perfect setup of the new F-150.

Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado 1500 Comparison

  • Once again, the Ford F-150 promises the higher towing and payload ratings, depending on the versions you choose. With the F-150 maxing out with a tow rating of around 14,000 pounds and a top payload rating at 3,325 pounds, and the Chevy Silverado 1500 only reaching 13,300 pounds and 2,280 pounds, respectively, it's clear that Ford's flagship full-sized pickup is the way to go.
  • If you're only looking for the bare basics in your next truck, you'll do well with the Ford F-150's lower starting price when comparing to the Chevy Silverado 1500. Similarly, you'll find plenty of comparable higher editions, cab styles and bed sizes will be more affordable when choosing the F-15o compared to the Silverado 1500.
  • With the capabilities needed for your next full-sized truck, you'll appreciate how the Ford F-150 makes several more powertrains available than what's offered with the Chevy Silverado 1500. Ford offers both the PowerBoost hybrid and EcoBoost turbocharged engines and setups, both of which aren't available with the Chevy Silverado 1500.
