The 2018 Ford F-150 Versus the 2018 Ram 1500

Over the past decade, Ram tirelessly sought to overthrow the reigning champion of the American automotive industry: Ford. With the introduction of recent model years' iterations of the Ram 1500, Ram's attempts, while valiant, ultimately fall short of directly improving upon the exceptional capability of the Ford F-150. Drivers from Glenolden to Springfield demand the utmost power, reliability, durability and robust performance from their trucks--features never absent from the legendary Ford F-150.

Power, Performance, and Capabilities

Both vehicles feature multiple engine options--however, the specifications of the available engines reveal a notable difference in performance from these two vehicles, in addition to Ford's additional options. Here's a breakdown of the standard-equipped engines between the two models:


Ford F-150

  • Engine:3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6
  • Horsepower: 290
  • Torque: 265
  • Efficiency: 19 city miles per gallon, 25 highway miles per gallon

Ram 1500

  • Engine:3.6-liter Pentastar® V6
  • Horsepower: 305
  • Torque: 269
  • Efficiency: 17 city miles per gallon, 25 highway miles per gallon
 While seemingly superior, the Ram 1500's greater displacement results in marginally lower fuel efficiency, and fewer options for upgraded powertrains. The Ford F-150, conversely, offers three additional options:
  • 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine
  • 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine
  • 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® engine
These options allow for better balancing between optimal fuel efficiency, towing torque and hauling horsepower to custom-tailor your truck to suit your driving style and particular needs.

While the Ram 1500 might offer marginally more power, it ultimately cannot compare to the Ford F-150's class-leading performance specifications. The Ford F-150 provides Best-in-Class towing of up to 13,200 pounds, and a Best-in-Class payload capacity of 3,270 pounds when properly equipped. The Ram 1500, conversely, only offers maximum gas towing of up to 10,620 pounds and a maximum gas payload of only 1,880 pounds! When it comes to high-strength construction, the Ford F-150 stands atop the segment as the unparalleled champion.
