Compare Performance & Capability

Both the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Ford F-150 feature several explosive engine configurations, but the fully redesigned Ram 1500 pulls ahead in several relevant areas. This model features a 306-horsepower V6 engine that is stronger than the base 290-horsepower V6 engine of the opposing Ford model. Its gas V8 engine towing capacity - 12,750 pounds - ranks best-in-class for the segment, as a V8 four-wheel drive configuration also leads the class in combined fuel economy estimates.

Compare Cabins

Recognized for featuring more leather than any full-size pickup you'll find, the 2019 Ram 1500 establishes a luxury cabin expectation that the Ford F-150 competition fails to match. Features such as a real wood dashboard, not offered by the Ford model, contribute to this rich feel. The digital SYNC® infotainment of the Ford model pales in comparison to a largest-in-class 12-inch Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation interface. The Ram truck proves superior for key accommodation areas with best-in-class rear legroom, class-leading available reclining rear seat and a class-exclusive rear seat fold-down center console.

Compare Design

While both full-size pickup trucks prove both versatile and adaptable, the 2019 Ram 1500 features modern utility that shoppers in Whitefish will appreciate. The F-150 doesn't feature a comparable bed configuration to the class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System, which includes everything from bins that lock and drain to LED lighting for visibility at night and a charging 115-volt power outlet station. With an available class-exclusive active-level™ four corner air suspension with automatic load leveling, this new Ram truck is even prepared to clear off-road obstacles and accommodate challenging landscapes.
