How Does the 2019 Ram 1500 Compare to the 2019 Ford F-150?

The new and improved line of Ram and Ford trucks both display some seriously impressive specifications and capabilities. The fierce competition between the brands means that these vehicles will only improve with each passing year! You've come to the right place if you're in the market for a truck and want to learn which model offers exceptional performance, towing capacity, and various bed options!

If you're in need of towing power, the 2019 Ram 1500 offers Best-in-Class V8 engine towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds. Older 2018 Ford models such as the 2018 F-150 just can't compete with that muscle! The improved 2019 Ford F-150 does have some substantial improvements with the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine capable of towing up to 13,200 pounds.

 

Under the hood of the 2019 Ram 1500 you'll find the available Best-in-Class V8 4x4 fuel economy thanks to the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with the eTorque Mild Hybrid System. This mechanically advanced engine replaces the alternator with a 48-volt battery-powered motor that will give you the grit you necessitate from your truck without hitting your wallet hard when you cruise along the highway. The available Ford F-150 3.5-liter EcoBoost provides the torque and towing capacity you need, but at the cost of efficiency.

 

The 2019 Ram 1500 is as forward thinking as it is rugged. The standard active air dam deploys as you near 30 mph to aid in reducing drag and make towing more efficient. The available air suspension system builds upon this efficiency automatically lowering the Ram 1500 at highway speeds for further reduction of drag ultimately saving you your hard earned money down the road.

 

The 2019 Ram 1500 features a high-strength steel frame ensuring a stiff and reliable ride to aid in delivering that insane towing capacity. Plus, this firm frame can handle a maximum payload capacity of up to 2,300 pounds. You'll be hard pressed to overload this vehicle! However, the aluminum alloy body found within the Ford- F-150 has the Ram 1500 beat offering Best-in-Class payload capacity.

The multiple available truck bed configurations for the Ram 1500 make the model one of the more versatile and customizable trucks on the market! Available 60/40 split doors make it easier to get in the bed and unload items or wash out the dirt, mulch, or snow that has built up after a long workday. Plus, these split doors further allow for safe and simple forklift loading.

The constant climb into the bed of the truck throughout the day can turn into a daunting task, especially when the sweltering heat of the summer sun is beating down on you! With a kick under the rear bumper the available Ram 1500 Bed Step will swing out allowing you to make that climb with ease and confidence.

If you're in need of extra storage, the available RamxBox Cargo Management system features secure and illuminated storage bins with outlets. These hardy bins are weatherproofed, but if you accidentally leave them open they can be drained in a pinch!
