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

The market for new trucks is one of the most competitive areas of the auto industry. Truck drivers like the ones you'll find in Dayton and Middletown, OH demand more from their trucks than they often do any other kind of vehicle on the road. They want trucks that can do more and that cut no corners.

In other words, they want trucks like the 2019 Ram 1500. Redesigned this year to deliver a higher standard of performance, features, and comfort than ever before, the new Ram 1500 delivers a vehicle package that utilizes modern ideas to deliver a rugged and robust truck.

The thing is? The Ram 1500 isn't the only full-size truck out there that can deliver that sort of experiences. Competitors like the Ford F-150 have also impressed drivers from Miamisburg to Richmond, IN with their fresh features and powerful performance options.

That leaves a big question for drivers like you: "Which one is better?" Let's take a look at what they both bring to the table.

Performance

If there's one thing that the 2019 F-150 has over the Ram 1500, it's engine options. The F-150 has a total of five different powertrains available for an array of different driving experiences. The 2019 Ram 1500, in comparison, only offers two.

Where the Ram 1500 makes up for it is with the power its engine options provide. The Ford F-150 utilizes a 290 horsepower V6 for its standard powertrain. The 2019 Ram 1500, in comparison, offers a 3.6-liter V6 capable of 305 horsepower and 269 pounds-feet of torque.

And if you're looking for more than that? Its second engine option is a 5.7-liter V8. With an output of 395 horsepower and 410 pounds-feet of torque, it's more than a match for all but the most powerful of the F-150's optional engines. And if you want access to those? You'll have to invest in expensive upgrades that bump the F-150's price higher than you'd pay for a comparable Ram 1500.

Safety

The 2019 Ram 1500 both provide solid safety options. The Ram 1500 offers features like adaptive cruise control, hill-descent controls and a surround-view camera among others. The Ford F-150 can similarly come with safety-focused features like inflatable rear seatbelts and Ford's BLIS blind-spot information system. Both trucks also performed well in crash and safety testing, meaning they're equipped to keep you safe in the event an accident does occur.

 

Interior and Features

There's more to a good truck than raw performance alone. Many modern trucks work hard to deliver great interior experiences as well. The Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 are no different in that regard.

Both trucks offer a wide spread of interior configurations with seating for up to six. The Ram 1500 and F-150 can come with impressive feature options. An award-winner for family-friendly comfort, the Ram 1500 can come equipped with everything from heated side mirrors and push-button start to media amenities like the Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The F-150 offers a similar selection of overall features, minus the Uconnect infotainment system, but restricts many of its best options to higher-level trims. The Ram 1500 offers a more robust feature suite at lower trim levels.

Which Truck Should You Choose?

The 2019 Ford F-150 is a great truck. Nobody would ever deny that. If you choose to go home in an F-150, you won't have a bad experience. The F-150, unfortunately, also cordons off the best of its features and performance options in higher-level trims that can cost more than many drivers would understandably want to pay.

The Ram 1500 has a slightly higher starting price, but it also offers more out of the gate and arguably spreads its best features more evenly across its trim models. You have a better chance of getting more for less when you drive home in a Ram.
