Let’s start with the engine options, you will have more possibilities with the Ford F-150: from 3.0L V6 Diesel to a 5.0L V8. While the Ram engine can be a little bigger than the ones offered by Ford, reaching a 5.7L V8 with eTorque. The Ford takes the lead when discussing towing with the max of 13,200 lbs., with the Ram not too far behind with 12,750 lbs. Since the gas prices are going up, let’s discuss the fuel-efficiency. The 2019 Ford F-150 is one of the most fuel-efficient trucks on the market. Their base engine, 3.3L V6 gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. 

The Ram and the Ford have different strengths, so choosing the right vehicle for you will depend on the aspects you are looking for. Talking about the interior and the quality of the truck and how smooth the ride is, the Ram 1500 is the right truck for you. The Ford F-150 is the right truck for you if you want more options on engine, higher towing capacity, better safety scores and lower prices.

It comes standard with rearview camera, automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. You will be able to have that, and more, with the 1500, but you will have to pay the price for it.
