In the market for a new full-size truck that will work as hard as you do? The 2019 RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 are two infamous models that fit the bill, and you’ve probably heard them both mentioned during your search. Put them head-to-head (or grille-to-grille) with Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Paris to see how they stack up and make an informed decision – it will likely be an easy one! Compare the 2019 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 below!

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

You’ll have the option of a V6 or V8 engine with both the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150, in addition to smooth-shifting transmissions. Take a look at each of their specs below to help decide which will better suit your Lexington driving needs.

  • F-150 Engines: With the Ford F-150 you will have six engine options, ranging from a 250 hp 3.0L turbo-diesel engine to a 450 hp 3.5L twin-turbo or a 395 hp 5.0L V8.
  • RAM 1500 Engines: The RAM 1500 is available with a 305 hp 3.6L V6 engine, a 395 hp 5.7L V8, or a mild hybrid version of the V8 that will award you with better fuel economy on Georgetown roads.
  • Transmissions: With the RAM 1500, your available transmission is an 8-speed automatic, while the F-150 is a 6- or 10-speed automatic.
  • Fuel Economy Ratings: When it comes to fuel economy ratings, these two pickup trucks are nearly tied. The F-150 earns up to 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway, while the RAM 1500 earns up to 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway.

F-150 or RAM 1500: Towing

Drivers who plan to do plenty of towing will be excited to know that the 2019 RAM 1500 has Best-in-Class V8 Towing**. When equipped with a 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque, it has a max towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, meaning it outclasses the F-150 V8. Both trucks are capable of delivering 395 hp, but the HEMI® can tow more. When the F-150 is fitted with a 5.0L V8 engine, its towing capacity is 11,600 pounds. It can tow up to 13,000 pounds with a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, but in the big picture that doesn’t beat the RAM 1500 by much.

F-150 or RAM 1500: Features

Many drivers find interior features to be equally as important as exterior features, and we’re happy to say that the new RAM 1500 offers more features in its base trim level than the Ford F-150, and for less money.
