Comparing the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150

There's no denying the fact that the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling pickup truck in America for quite some time now, but we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that it faces some stiff competition from the RAM 1500. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if it overtook the F-150 in terms of sales in the near future!

As far as performance is concerned, both the RAM and the F-150 feature electric motors with optional four-wheel drive. The RAM's a bit more impressive, with a little more calm and an impressive optional air suspension. In other words, it's the smoothest full-size truck you can find. The RAM 1500 achieves the highest fuel economy numbers in its class with its standard V-6 engine and its eight-speed automatic transmission.

When considering comfort and utility, both the Ford and RAM trucks come in three body styles and bed lengths, with 10 or eleven trim levels total for each. Comfort and seating features are rather equal, though the RAM features additional storage bins and in-fender storage.

Both trucks come equipped with impressive safety features, including a rearview camera and trailer-sway control. In terms of technology, the 1500's UConnect touchscreen system is much easier to use, there's also an available wireless internet service with tethered data. Most drivers will prefer the new UConnect to the often-confusing MyFord Touch system.
