Ram 1500 Vs. Ford F-150 Specs

New Ram vehicles don't skimp on power. They're generous with it. The F-150 offers a standard 3.3-liter V-6 engine with 290 horsepower; the Ram fights back with a standard 3.6-liter V-6, which lays down 305 horsepower. The Ford truck can top out at 450 horsepower with its available 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6. But, 450 horsepower is far from the maximum power that a Ram truck offers.

With a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8, the Ram 1500 TRX dominates with 702 horsepower.

With their standard V-6 engines and RWD layouts, the Ram 1500 delivers up to an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg city / 25 mpg highway1, while the F-150 delivers up to an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway2.

While the F-150 no longer offers a diesel engine, the Ram 1500 still has a diesel option, and it lays down 480 lb-ft of torque.

Ram Vs. Ford F-150 Towing and Payload

Trucks, naturally, have to offer strong capabilities. A new Ram truck excels at this task. Using the standard V-6, its lowest towing capacity is 6,550 lbs3. For the Ford, you'll find the lowest tow rating of 5,000 lbs with that standard V-6.

The Ram 1500 can rise to incredible heights. Using the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with eTorque, it can tow up to 12,750 lbs3.

Payload capacity is a similar story. The 2022 Ram 1500 Tradesman Crew Cab 6'4" box 4x2 with the standard 3.6-liter V-6 can carry a max payload of 1,990 lbs3, while a similar Ford model, the 2022 Ford F-150 XL SuperCab 6.5-foot box 4x2 with the standard 3.3-liter V-6, offers a max payload of 1,905 lbs.

Choose a 2022 Ram 1500 Tradesman Quad Cab 6'4" box 4x2 with the 3.6-liter V-6, and you'll get a max payload rating of 2,320 lbs3.

Ram Vs. Ford F-150 Warranty Coverage

A Ram 1500 is built for the long haul; with your new truck, you'll get a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty4, a five-year/60,000-mile Gas Powertrain Limited Warranty4 (or a five-year/100,000-mile Diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty4), and five-years/100,000-miles of roadside assistance coverage5.

Ford also offers a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty but only includes 60,000-miles of roadside assistance with the Ford F-150 (while also missing out on the long-lasting diesel powertrain warranty).

Ram Vs. Ford F-150 Interior

From comfort features like eight-position reclining rear seats (A Ram truck exclusive) to built-in sound deadening innovations, the Ram 1500 goes above and beyond to make the journey comfortable. The F-150 misses out on many of the Ram truck's jaw-dropping interior features.

It doesn't offer the available 10 square foot dual-pane sunroof, the available 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, or the available 12-inch touchscreen infotainment display. That sound system offers the most speakers in the light-duty pickup class, and that touchscreen display is also the largest in said class; they're both exclusive to the Ram 1500.

You can also enjoy further innovations like a powerful air filtration system, a 3D color graphic digital gauge cluster, exclusive in-floor storage compartments, and much more when you choose a Ram 1500.
