2017 Ram 1500 vs 2017 Ford F-150 for New Orleans Area Drivers

Drivers know that Ram trucks are some of the toughest on the market. Ram 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 2017 Ram 1500 is a force to be reckoned with out on the road. While the 2017 Ford F-150 is also a popular choice, it just can't compare to the Ram 1500. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Power: The standard engine in the 2017 Ram 1500 is a 3.6-liter V6 that provides 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. The standard engine in the 2017 Ford F-150 gives only 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. Ram gives you more power right out of the gate.
