2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Ford F-150

Today’s full-size trucks can be at home going to dinner in Omaha or on the job site in Blair, since they come with so many available luxury options and beautiful trim packages. At the heart, though, they’re still full-size trucks, the work horses with the power to keep Fremont on the move and working. Let Sid Dillon help you decide which full-size truck is best for you – the F-150 or the RAM 1500.

RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Price, Payload and Power

Sometimes you get what you pay for, which is why it’s worthwhile to dig into the RAM 1500’s features. It sports a considerably higher MSRP than the Ford F-150 – several thousand dollars difference. What do you get for that money? More power and towing capability.

The RAM 1500 has a maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds compared to Ford F-150’s 1,990 pounds. The RAM clocks a whopping 305 hp compared to Ford’s 290 hp. Credit this to the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque. Here’s what this best-in-class V6 offers:

  • Wide-range variable valve timing
  • Two-step variable valve lift
  • 269 lb-ft torque
  • The new eTorque Mild Hybrid System replaces the traditional alternator with a 48-volt battery-powered motor that creates efficient power.

The Ford F-150’s 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine is no slouch, but it doesn’t put out the same level of efficient horsepower as the Pentastar. The F-150’s torque is slightly lower at 265 lb.-ft. The engine features twin independent variable cam timing that optimizes power at every level. The power output level can be manually optimized by choosing from Normal, Tow/Haul, or Sport settings.

Staying Connected

When you’re on the road outside Lincoln or Columbus, especially in winter, it’s become increasingly crucial to stay connected. The Ford F-150 offers FordPass Connect with a 4G WiFi Hotspot for staying up to date on traffic, weather, and road conditions. The system also allows you to control locks and the ignition from your phone. RAM’s Uconnect system features Bluetooth capabilities and voice control.
