The 1500 is nicely equipped with a standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that roars with 305 horsepower. The F-150’s base trim can’t match that power, coming in with only a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine and 290 horsepower. 1500 also has a lower base price than F-150, making 1500 the clear choice.

The F-150 and Ram 1500 each have a number of unique driver-focused features. The Ram 1500 has an available bold 8.4 inch touchscreen with Uconnect compatibility. Uconnect can bring another dimension to your truck, adding 4G LTE, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and HD Radio. Available remote vehicle start and Vehicle Finder increase your truck’s security and capability. F-150 has a smaller available productivity screen, giving it a disadvantage in this category.

Compare Exterior

When it comes to maximum exterior towing and payload capacity, the 2018 F-150 does have an edge. F-150 can pull up to 13,200lbs. and has a maximum payload of just over 3,200 lbs. The Ram 1500 tops out with a max towing of 10,600 lbs. and max payload of 1,880 lbs. Higher towing capacities can be more expensive, so it’s always smart to know how much you’ll be towing before you buy your next truck. However, we do appreciate the contemporary and aerodynamic exterior body style that Ram’s engineers designed for the new 1500.
