See How the 2018 Ford F-150 Outperforms the Ram 1500

For 40 years, the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America, due in large part to the devoted following of die-hard fans who choose the Ford F-150 time and time again. The Ford F-150 is one of the most beloved pickup trucks in America with a devoted following of fans which have made it the best-selling truck in America for 40 years! There are other trucks out there that might try to live up to the legendary F-150, but they simply can't compete with the capability, performance, and versatility the Ford F-150 offers. The Ram 1500 is a powerful truck that offers many great features, but can it best the Ford F-150? The answer is a resounding no…the F-150 simply can't be beaten!

The F-150 Offers More Value and Superior Safety Features

To begin with, the Ford F-150 simply offers more value than the Ram 1500. The Ford F-150 was named as U.S. News and World Reports' 2017 Best Full-Size Truck for the Money award, even though it's base price is slightly higher than the Ram's. The reason for this is that you'll have to climb the trim ladder pretty high on the Ram 1500 in order to get what you'll find on the F-150 base model.

You'll also find that the Ford F-150 boasts better safety features than the Ram 1500; the F-150 earned five out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in three out of four categories, and also earned a four out of five star rating in the rollover test. Unfortunately, the Ram 1500 only earned five stars in the side crash test. The Ford F-150 also bested the Ram in the  Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests; the F-150 was rated Good in all categories while the Ram 1500 only received a Marginal score for roof strength and small overlap front protection.

Exceptional Power, Performance, and Capability

If you're choosing a pickup truck, it's probably because you have some hauling or towing to do - and the Ford F-150 will offer more capability than the Ram 1500 will. The F-150's base engine will offer the same towing capacity as the Ram's, at around 7,600 pounds. However, when properly equipped with available options, the Ford F-150 can tow a whopping 12,200 and haul 3,270 - substantially more than the Ram's maximum towing capacity of 10,700 pounds. All this with a smooth, quiet ride so you can enjoy the journey, wherever you're headed.

You'll also enjoy greater fuel economy with the Ford F-150, with higher mileage in both the city and highway driving conditions. U.S. News and World Reports suggests that Ford's twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 offers a great balance of power with fuel efficiency to match. In addition, the Ford F-150earns higher reliability ratings from the J.D. Power and Associates than the Ram does, reflecting a better investment for long-term reliability.
