Comparing the Ram 1500 vs. the Ford F-150: Two Dynamic Trucks

When you are looking for a powerful workhorse, you can't do a whole lot better than Ram or Ford. These two iconic brands are both built to be dependable partners that forge ahead. Exceptional by every metric, you'll find plenty to love about the Ford F-150, and the Ram 1500 available at Hondru Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram of E-Town for Elizabethtown and Harrisburg drivers. We're here to show you why when push comes to shove, the Ram 1500 edges out the Ford F-150 as your premier truck option.

Why Should You Take a Ram 1500 over a Ford F-150?

The question seems simple, right? Well, fortunately, it's just as easy to answer. The Ram 1500 has a host of stellar advantages that propel it above the Ford F-150 Hershey drivers will notice as soon as they get behind the wheel. These Ram 1500 upgrades include:

  • Best-In-Class V8 Engine Towing: (Quad Cab®) the Ram 1500 provides up to 12,750 pounds towing, which outpaces the Ford F-150 significantly, which tows 11,600 pounds.
  • Available Active Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension: It works by lowering the Ram 1500 at highway speeds to reduce drag. When paired with towing features and a V8, it greatly enhances performance. This feature is unavailable on the Ford F-150.
  • Available RAMBOX® Cargo Management System: (Crew Cab® with 5'7" box) provides versatile storage options in the bed. The Ford F-150 lacks this extra bed storage capacity.
  • Best-In-Class Rear Legroom: (Crew Cab®) you'll find that your passengers have plenty of legroom in the Ram 1500 with 45.1-inches of space, compared to the Ford F-150 which is a little more cramped with 43.6-inches of space.
  • In-Floor Storage: (Crew Cab®) versatile storage options are a nice perk to the Ram 1500, you won't find in-floor storage in the Ford F-150.
  • Superior Standard Engine: The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine with eTorque offers 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, which outpaces the 3.8-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine of the Ford F-150.
  • Standard Transmission: The standard transmission is an eight-speed automatic, which is superior to the six-speed automatic.
  • Push-Button Start: Comes standard on the Ram 1500, but is not available on the Ford F-150.
  • Brake Rotor Size: The Brake Rotor on the Ram 1500 has a 14.9-inch front and 14.8-inch rear, while the Ford F-150 brake rotors are smaller in size.


The Ram 1500 is a technical oasis, with an available largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen. The home screen is customizable, with pinch-and-zoom technology and physical controls. It's beautiful to look at, and home to all your technical needs.

Further, the Ram 1500 has a whole host of tech features that enable it to stand alone in its class. A digital cluster display keeps your information in front of you and illuminated, while active noise cancellation technology keeps your cabin's interior noise audible while drowning out the roaring road. With smartphone connectivity, USB ports, Sirius® radio and more, there's so much to love with the Ram 1500.
