2021 Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado vs. RAM 1500

If you're in search of a strong, capable, reliable pickup truck, you're sure to take a look at the Big Three. With the 2021 Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and RAM 1500, you get powerful performance and modern amenities. Compare them to see which one stands out as your new partner for hard work and play.

Exceptional Performance

Each truck is strong enough to get the job done with multiple engine options to suit more kinds of drivers. Each truck comes with three options for the base trim. Of those, the 2021 Ford F-150 offers the most power with 400 horsepower for the 5.0L V8. Pair it with a 10-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual. The Chevy and RAM stop at an eight-speed transmission. The Ford is also slightly smaller, which means it is more lightweight with a shorter turning radius to fit in tight spaces.

Tuned into Tech

Today's drivers expect some technology even on their work trucks. However, all three of these models keep it simple with a multimedia system. Navigation isn't available on the base trim, but Bluetooth is standard for all three. With the 2021 Ford F-150, you get two LCD screens compared to just one for Chevy and RAM. Voice recognition is also standard for Ford, which isn't the case with the other two trucks. Another feature Ford considers important to add to all trims is the speed-sensitive volume.

A Safer Ride

Feel safe wherever your job takes you in these trucks. All models include basic safety features to prevent accidents, such as stability control and antilock brakes. However, the 2021 Ford F-150 includes in-vehicle assistance even on the base model. Ford also adds lane departure warning for the base trim to alert you if you drift into another lane without signaling. This system is an option for RAM, but Chevy doesn't make it available on the base trim.

High-End Trims

As you look at the higher-end trims for these trucks, you'll see other amenities and features added. All three provide multiple engine options, even though the 2021 Ford F-150 stops with two. Of course, it doesn't need more than that with the most powerful of all the options in the 3.5L V6 for 430 horsepower. All three makes cruise control standard, but Ford adds adaptive cruise control as a standard feature on the high-end trims. Voice recognition and a touchscreen are standard for the multimedia systems. Ford increases the level of entertainment with an 18-speaker audio system, which is well above the 10-speaker system for RAM. Relax in premium comfort with leather seats for all models and heated front seats which become standard at the higher trims.
