However, Ford engines offer just a little more power with 290 horsepower in the 3.3L V6 as opposed to 260 horsepower with the 3.0L V6 for the RAM 1500. When you upgrade to the 2.7L V6, you get 325 horsepower over 305 horsepower for the RAM. Get more choices from Ford when you select a higher trim while the RAM 1500 just has three. Ford offers two transmissions as well over one for the RAM.

Solid Reputation

When you think of pickup trucks, both the Ford F-150 and RAM 1500 will be on that list. They offer award-winning performance and critics are quite impressed with either model. However, only one can win the title of best-selling truck in America, and that honor goes to Ford. In fact, the F-150 is the top choice for all vehicles in North America.

Stylish Design

Often style and comfort come second in design for pickup trucks, but both the Ford and RAM cater to buyers who want to see a few more amenities. Ford offers more basic options with a Regular Cab to reduce cost when all you need is a work truck. On the other hand, the high-end trims provide luxury amenities, such as heated and ventilated front seats. Ford takes it a step further and allows for more customization. Add bed liners, steps and locking bins for extra storage. In fact, you can look through the 40-page order guide to create a truck that suits your needs.

With more buyers using trucks for family trips and everyday commuting as well as a work truck, even slight improvements in efficiency can have a big impact. The Ford F-150 offers up to 23 mpg on the 3.6L V6 engine which is slightly better than the RAM 1500 with 20 mpg for highway miles.
