Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150



When comparing the 2021 Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150, one of the first things that comes up is that the Ram truck allows you to tow up to 12,750 pounds. Somehow, Ram engineers have managed to pair this capability with an available V8 4×4 combined fuel economy of 19 MPG. Luckily, the Ford truck is great as well.

That’s why the team here at our Ram dealership created this guide to the Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us! After all, we’re here to serve drivers who call Wilsonville, Woodburn, and Portland home, OR.

Ram 1500 Technology

Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Technology

The technology that you’ll find in the Ram 1500 reveals itself to be quite accessible. Examples include the standard 5-inch screen for the infotainment display as well as the available 12-inch touchscreen. No matter which one you choose, you can look forward to seeing and adjusting the settings and controls easily.

The Productivity Screen that comes standard in the Ford F-150 measures at only 4-inches. However, the largest available size matches the 1500’s 12-inch screen. Unfortunately, you’ll have to upgrade to the higher-end trims to get that bigger screen in the F-150.

Ram 1500 Towing Capacity

The Capability to Get the Job Done

In addition to its towing capacity, fuel economy, engine options, horsepower, and torque, the Ram light-duty pickup also offers various high-tech features that promote safe, efficient, and effective hauling.

These include Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection and a class-exclusive Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension with an automatic load-leveling function.

On the other hand, the Ford model’s efforts are commendable. Their light-duty pickup comes with a Blind Spot Information System (called BLIS®) that’s comparable to the one on the Ram 1500. It even offers trailer coverage that’s similar to the Ram model’s Trailer Detection capabilities. In this department, Ford has managed well.

Ram 1500 Performance

The Big Wheel Keeps on Turning

Last, but certainly not least, the Ram 1500 offers no less than eleven available wheel options across its many trim levels. We’re not going to list all your options here, but we’ll give you a preview of a few:

  • 22-Inch Premium Painted/Polished Aluminum Wheels
  • 20-Inch Black Painted Aluminum Wheels
  • 20-Inch Chrome Clad Aluminum Wheels
  • 22-Inch Painted/Polished Two-Tone Aluminum Wheels
  • 18-Inch Gloss Black Aluminum Wheels

And that’s just the beginning. Get in touch with us to learn about which wheels pair with each Ram 1500 trim level. Unfortunately for the Ford F-150, you’ll only be able to choose from a total of five-wheel options.
