When it comes time for East Peoria-area drivers to pick out a new pickup truck, they often compare Ford vs. RAM, as these two brands produce some of the best models currently available. More specifically, the 2020 Ford F-150 and 2020 RAM 1500 are both strong full-size pick-up truck options, but which will meet your driving demands around Peoria? Find out in this Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 comparison guide from Mike Murphy Ford!

Ford vs. RAM: Engine Lineups

Some Pekin-area drivers need their truck to accommodate work site tasks, while others simply prefer a luxurious pickup to get their families from point A to point B. Still, others seek off-road adventures behind the wheel of their pickup. That means the more options there are in an engine lineup, the more likely they are to get the performance they require.

With this in mind, take a look at the six Ford F-150 engine offerings, as compared to the RAM 1500’s three-engine lineup.

Ford F-150

  • 3.5L EcoBoost® rated at 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L Powerstroke® TurboDiesel rated at 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque
  • High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost® rated at 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.7L Turbocharged EcoBoost® rated at 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 rated at 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 rated at 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque

Ram 1500

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 rated at 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L PentaStar® V6 rated at 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 rated at 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque

What makes the new Ford F-150 even more appealing? The fact that it boasts the highest maximum output over the RAM 1500. That’s in addition to better gas fuel economy ratings, with the F-150 achieving an EPA-estimated 26 mpg highway and the RAM 1500 hitting just 25 mpg highway.

Ford vs. RAM: Towing Capacities

This Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 comparison has already proven the Ford truck’s superiority in terms of performance, and these strengths continue in the towing category. The F-150’s maximum tow rating reaches 13,200 pounds when properly equipped, whereas the RAM 1500’s tow rating tops off at 12,750 pounds.

Ford vs. RAM: Price

The best part is, Washington-area drivers get each of these F-150 advantages while paying less than they would for the RAM 1500.
