Ram 1500 vs. Ford F150: Which is Better?
Two of the highest-rated trucks on the market every year are the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150. Many consumers compare these two trucks when shopping for cars and find that they are pretty evenly matched. However, we at Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Norman believe that the Ram 1500 edges out the Ford F-150 every time. Here are 3 reasons why.
1. Fuel Economy
The Ram 1500 has the best fuel economy in its class, and the F-150 pales in comparison. With the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, you can get up to 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. This will save you a lot of money at the pump when compared to the most fuel-efficient model of the F-150, which only gets 23 mpg on the highway.
Another way in which the Ram 1500 is superior to the F-150 is in its interior. The Ram 1500 has a classic design with comfortable seats and plenty of leg room. While the F-150 has some bells and whistles, it is widely recognized that the 1500’s interior technology is much more user friendly. The Ram features both touch screen and classic analog controls, meaning the user can use whichever with which he is most comfortable. The Ram 1500’s comfortable interior gives it a better driving experience than the F-150.
The Ram line offers many potent engines which can do just about whatever you ask of it. The Ram’s most fuel efficient engine, the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, has a respectable 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. That engine pales in comparison to the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine which has 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. This is superior to Ford’s top engine, the twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6, which has 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The Ram engine also operates more softly and quietly than the F-150, making it superior in performance to its rival.
