2019 Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500

See How the 2019 Ford F-150 Outperforms the 2019 Ram 1500


More people than ever are driving pickup trucks - and not just for work. Many are using pickups for their every-day vehicle, whether its for running errands, their commute, or even a night on the town. Even so, what really separates a truck from a car is still its capability. If you need something to haul furniture, pull a car out that's stuck, or even drive on a snow-covered road, a pickup truck is the best vehicle for doing it. The Ford F-Series trucks have been the best-selling pickup trucks for more than 42 straight years for a reason. They have some of the strongest engines on the market, which makes them (including the F-150) the go-to trucks for people with work to do. The Ram 1500 also has impressive capability and a nice interior. However, here at Countryside Ford, we think when all factors are considered, people in Columbus and Marshall, WI will agree that the Ford F-150 is the better overall pickup truck.


Compare the 2019 Ford F-150 vs. the 2019 Ram 1500

  • The F-150 Has a Higher Towing Capacity: One of the biggest reasons people own pickup trucks is to have a vehicle than can tow heavy trailers for work or campers for outdoor activities. Drivers in Watertown who tow frequently will like that the Ford F-150 can tow over 2,500 pounds more weight than the Ram 1500.
  • The F-150 Has a Higher Payload Capacity: Need to haul supplies for a landscaping project? Or maybe you need to help someone move? Whatever you need to carry in the back, the F-150 can haul a little more weight than the Ram 1500.
  • The F-150 Has More Maximum Horsepower: If you've got a friend whose car is stuck in mud or a snow bank, you need a truck with the power to pull them out. As you can see in the table below, the Ford F-150 has 55 more maximum horsepower than the Ram 1500.
  • The F-150 Is Safer: In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests, the F-150 earned a five-star overall rating, with five out of five stars in two tests, and four stars in one test. The NHTSA only tested the Ram 1500 in two categories, and it scored lower than the F-150, with a four-star rating in one test and three stars in the other. The F-150 also comes standard with more advanced safety systems. The Ram 1500's base model only has a rearview camera, while the F-150 comes standard with a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.
  • The F-150 Has More Helpful Towing Features: Not only does the F-150 have more towing capacity, it also has more features to make towing easier and safer.
