2019 Red RAM 1500 Parked

The RAM 1500 is capable for the heavy lifting and hauling of life. As standard, it features a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine, which is worth 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The Ford F-150 boasts a 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 as standard equipment, but it only renders 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. New for 2019, the RAM 1500 infuses eTorque technology in its available 5.7-liter HEMI® V8, which optimizes both efficiency and overall performance. The new F-150 offers no similar technology. Thanks to this new integration, the RAM 1500 offers best-in-class 4x4 combined fuel economy-an accolade the Ford F-150 can't claim.


When it comes to convenience, the RAM 1500 continues to succeed in this head-to-head truck comparison. For example, the new RAM 1500 comes standard with a vibrant five-inch touchscreen with Uconnect® infotainment. The F-150, on the other hand, only features a 4.2-inch display in the center stack. While both models offer upgrades to a larger screen, the Ford F-150 only ups it to eight inches-the RAM 1500 for sale equips an 8.4-inch touchscreen in top trims, which is also a largest-in-class display size.

The RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 are both excellent options in the realm of performance. However, the new RAM truck features an array of performance-oriented systems not offered in the F-150. These include rainy day braking, ready alert braking, an active air dam, and trailer sway damping. While both models come standard with a locking tailgate and offer an available power opening function, only the RAM 1500 features a new multi-function tailgate. It can be opened one of four ways: standard open flat, left door open, right door open, or both doors open (swing-out configuration).
