The Ford F-150 Vs The Ram 1500

Have you been searching for a new pickup truck in the area of Alexandria, LA? Are you researching and browsing on which truck is the top performer like the Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500? For generations, Ford has produced some of the nation's longest lasting trucks and if you're in the market for quality performance and rugged endurance, few models compare to the F-150. Here's a brief rundown on why Louisiana drivers should consider the F-150 over the Ram 1500.


When it comes to standard features, the Ford F-150 offers a bit more than what you can expect in the Ram 1500. Enjoy the easy push-button start and the Dynamic Hitch Assist that provides simple guidelines when backing up to attach your trailer. Also, the Ford F-150 includes your option for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot so that all your passengers can stay connected to their smart devices.

If comfort is what you're after for your daily commute and work truck duties, there is a feature within the F-150 that the Ram 1500 doesn't provide. Both truck models have plush leather interior seating options. However, the F-150 adds a little extra comfort to your ride. Drivers can look forward to the available massaging front seats which keeps you rested as well as limber during the work day or those long-distance commutes.

Power and performance are similar in the F-150 and Ram 1500 models. However, if you wish to maximize your power options the F-150 Raptor has a 450-horsepower engine, whereas the Ram 1500 Rebel at a standard level doesn't even compete with the 305-horsepower or 395-horsepower engine options.


When it comes to safety, Ford takes the lead with its 360-degree camera for an optimized view and contains front and rear parking sensors along with lane keep assistance, blind spot monitoring, and pedestrian detection, whereas the Ram 1500 only has the rear and front parking sensors. The F-150 also receives a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety with top-notch scores in the areas of safety.
