Truck Comparison: Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150


2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150 for New Orleans Area Drivers

Drivers know that Ram trucks are some of the toughest on the market. These trucks aren't meant to sit in a garage all day looking shiny; Ram trucks are powerful work trucks, meant to haul all kinds of cargo day in and day out. The Ram 1500 is a force to be reckoned with out on the road. While the 2018 Ford F-150 is also a popular choice, it just can't compare to the 2018 Ram 1500. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Price: The Ram 1500 starts at $27,095 MSRP, while the notably more expensive Ford F-150 has a starting price of $27,610 MSRP
  • Trims: If you demand plenty of options when choosing a truck, the Ram 1500's 9 trim levels will put a smile on your face; the F-150's 7 trim options fall short.
  • Standard Power: The Ram 1500's base engine is capable of hitting 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque; giving you much more muscle to work with than the F-150's standard engine's lesser 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
  • Smoother Ride: A standard 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission in the Ram 1500 makes for a smoother and more enjoyable driving experience than the Ford F-150's standard 6-speed automatic transmission.
  • Convenient Cleaning: You'll have an easier time cleaning the Ram 1500's standard vinyl seating after a long day of working in the sun and the dirt than you will cleaning the Ford F-150's standard cloth seating.
  • Easy Cruising: You'll enjoy standard cruise control in the Ram 1500; the F-150 only offers this as an optional feature.
  • Colors: With 19 exterior color options, you'll have no trouble giving your Ram 1500 a unique look even at a glance; the Ford F-150, on the other hand, only offers 14 exterior color options.
