Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150

The 2019 Ram 1500 Has More Available Features Than Its Competitors

If you're looking for a pickup truck that's tough and powerful, with lots of tech and safety features, check out the all-new 2019 Ram 1500. The new Ram 1500 pickup truck has the most towing and hauling capability ever in a Ram 1500, as well as being the most luxurious truck in its class. It also has an available class-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System with two lockable, drainable storage bins with LED lighting, plus new features like a 115-volt power outlet and remote access via the key fob. The 2018 Ford F-150 also has a lot of quality features, but here at O'Daniel Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Fort Wayne, IN, we believe the Ram 1500 offers a little more luxury and convenience than the F-150. After comparing the two in-depth, we think you'll agree.

Compare the 2019 Ram 1500 and the new Ford F-150

  • Power, Performance and Towing: Regenerative brakes improve the Ram 1500’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Ford F-150 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.
  •  
  • The Ram 1500 has a maximum trailering capacity of 6,730 pounds. The Ford F-150's max trailering capacity is only 5,000 pounds.

  • Both trucks offer precise steering and agile handling, but the Ram 1500 stands out thanks to its cushioned ride, which makes it more comfortable than other full-sized trucks. The Ram 1500 can be upgraded with an optional air suspension, which gives it a smoother ride than the Ford F-150.
  • Technology and Safety: To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Ram 1500 offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The F-150 doesn’t offer cornering lights.
  • Bluetooth wireless connectivity is standard on the Ram 1500, connecting the driver and passenger’s cell phones to the vehicle systems. This allows them to use the vehicle’s stereo and hand controls to place calls safely and easily. Bluetooth costs extra on the F-150.
  • The Ram 1500 (except Tradesman/HFE) offers optional Reverse Stop, which uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The Ford F-150 doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

However, the Ram 1500 has some standard features that you must pay extra or get a higher trim level to have.
  • The Ram 1500’s standard power locks allow the driver or passenger to lock or unlock all the doors at a touch without leaning over. Power locks cost extra on the Ford F-150.
  • The Ram 1500’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Ford charges extra for heated mirrors on the F-150.
  • Optional air conditioned front and rear seats keep the Ram 1500’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The F-150 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.

After comparing the two in-depth, we think you'll agree.
