2021 RAM 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150

When you drive a truck, you’re not just driving a vehicle. You’re bringing an extra level of power and professionalism to your Logansport drive. When you face off the 2021 RAM 1500 vs. the 2021 Ford F-150, which wins? We’ve got to hand it to the RAM 1500, a vehicle that’s received accolades for the power it offers local drivers. Twin Lakes Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has the scoop on the RAM 1500 vs. the Ford F-150 and some information on how to finance a RAM truck of your own.

F-150 or RAM 1500: Engines and Performance

You can pick from four engine options for the RAM 1500 while the 2021 Ford F-150 gives you five. When choosing F-150 or RAM 1500, even though you have one more engine option for your Rensselaer drive on the F-150, you still get more power on both the lowest and highest engine options on the RAM 1500. When choosing the F-150 or the RAM 1500, you’ll want to know that the RAM 1500 just gives you more. Take a look at the comparison between RAM 1500 and F-150 right here:

RAM 1500 Engine Specs

  • Standard: 3.6L PENTASTAR® V6 eTorque with 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • Diesel: 3.0L EcoDiesel V6® – 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque – 32 mpg hwy best-in-class fuel economy*
  • Top Engine: 5.7L HEMI® V8 eTorque with 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque

Ford F-150 Engine Specs

  • Standard: 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 with 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque
  • Diesel: 3.0L Power Stroke® TurboDiesel with 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque (30 mpg hwy)
  • Top engine: High-Output 3.5L Ecoboost V6 with 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque

F-150 or RAM 1500: Towing Capacity

Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500V8 Towing Capacity

  • RAM 1500 – 12,750 pounds with the 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque
  • Ford F-150 – 11,500 pounds with a comparable V8

Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 V6 Towing Capacity

  • RAM 1500 – 12,560 pounds with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel® V6
  • Ford F-150 – 14,000 pounds with the V6, but its diesel engine can only tow 11,500 pounds

Those who seek power on the metrics alone might be attracted to the additional power of the F-150, but this does not capture the full picture and how it impacts your Monon drive. Picking the F-150 would mean you’d lose out on great features like the RAMBOX® cargo management system lockable storage container and the multifunction tailgate, which acts closer to a car door to give you an easier time loading and unloading. You’ve got a choice between the F-150 or the RAM 1500, and we think that the RAM 1500 is the superior driving experience.
