2019 Ram 1500 vs 2019 Ford F-150
Posted on January 15, 2021
You can own the best-selling truck, or you can own the best pickup truck in North America. Given the choice, you'd prefer to test drive and own the pickup with better features and more power, wouldn't you? The 2019 Ram 1500 goes head to head against the Ford F-150. While each truck has its benefits, the Ram truck has an edge in most every category.
These are some ways the Ram 1500 Laramie beats out the Ford F-150 Lariat, courtesy of your Ram dealer in Thornhill and Caledon, ON, CarHub.
If you're buying a pickup truck to use like a truck, it needs to haul. The 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat is respectable with a maximum towing capacity of 2,268kg. That's no comparison for the Ram 1500 Laramie though, with an edge of more than 1,600kg. It can tow up to 3,896kg when properly equipped!
The standard engine for the 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat is a turbocharged V6 for 325 horsepower. While that's enough for an average pickup truck user, Ram trucks don't settle for average. The Ram 1500 Laramie is equipped with the award-winning 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine that makes 395 horsepower. Let your horses run…
LED Fog Lights
When you need to see at night, you need reliable, bright white light. The Ford F-150 Lariat includes standard halogen fog lights, and that's not a bad thing. But when the 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie's LED fog lights come on, it outshines the competition.
The Ford SYNC and SYNC 3 infotainment systems can be found in the F-150 Lariat trim. Yet, you don't find any awards for class-leading tech in their mantle. No, that goes to the Ram 1500 Laramie with the available class-leading 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen system.
Four full doors aren't half-bad for the Ford F-150 Lariat. But it pales in comparison to the Ram 1500's best-in-class rear seat legroom. Along with the class-exclusive ability to recline 8 degrees, rear-seat passengers in the Ram 1500 won't be fighting over the shotgun seat anymore.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat has standard spring and shock absorber-style suspension, front and rear. Sure, that's normal for a pickup truck, but the Ram 1500 doesn't settle for anything 'normal'. The 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie offers a class-exclusive four-corner air-levelling suspension system for a smoother, more controlled, and more comfortable ride.
The Ford F-150 Lariat has the aluminum truck bed and typical truck tie-downs for cargo. But what about tools and important cargo? Either you leave it in the box or you plug up your interior with grimy equipment. The 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck, though, keeps your interior cleaner. With lockable bed-side storage boxes, you can secure your precious cargo out of sight under lock and key.
More aggressive looks, better tech, more power, and more flexible storage. Why would you choose anything other than the Ram 1500? Test drive the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck today at your local Ram dealer in Thornhill and Caledon, ON, CarHub
