2019 RAM 1500 vs 2019 Ford F-150 near Gastonia, NC

If you've been looking for a new large truck that excels in both power and capabilities, then we have quite the pair of vehicles to show you. The 2019 RAM 1500 and the Ford F-150 are both impressive options that'll get you where you're going and make sure the job gets done once there. Though, should that not be enough to narrow down your decision on the matter, follow along as we compare what the two vehicles bring to the table in terms of power and features, which might help you decide which would be better for you.

2019 RAM 1500 Power & Handling

The 2019 RAM 1500 brings with it two amazing powertrain options, each of which is more than prepared to give you the power and ability you need to get your work done. The engine that comes standard on the 1500 is a 3.6-liter V6 that will put out 305 horsepower and 296 pound-feet of torque. If that doesn't seem like enough then, for all but the HFE trim, there us the option to upgrade a 5.7-liter V8 engine with an even more impressive 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. Each of these powertrains come paired with rear-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a 3.21 axle ratio. Excluding the HFE trim once more, there is also an option to choose four-wheel-drive as well.

2019 Ford F-150 Power & Handling

The standard engine available on the 2019 Ford F-150 is a 3.3 V6 matched to a six-speed automatic transmission that together put out 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. For those looking for something a bit different, there are other options though. The other options include a 2.7-liter V6 with its 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, a 5-liter V8 engine that puts out 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that can push 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, and a diesel-powered turbocharged 3-liter engine with 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission comes paired with each optional engine.

2019 RAM 1500 Features & Design

The 2019 RAM 1500 allows you to choose between seven feature-rich trim levels, each more decked out than the previous one so that you can choose just the right driving experience to make your time behind the wheel perfect for you. The workhorse of the lot and most basic of the trims is the Tradesman, though you'll find that it isn't so basic at all with its vinyl upholstery and flooring, class III hitch receiver, five-inch touchscreen, pair of USB inputs, auxiliary audio jack, 40/20/40-split rear folding bench, a locking tailgate, 18-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, push-button ignition, and a six-speaker audio system. The HFE trim will come equipped similarly to the Tradesman, though with rear-wheel drive and better fuel efficiency. The Big Horn trim level comes with more features like fog lights, carpeted flooring, a 60/40-split folding rear bench, tinted windows, and 18-inch alloy wheels while allowing for several optional features such as 20-inch wheels, an air suspension, LED tail- and headlights, side steps, power-adjustable pedals, dual-zone climate control, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. At the Rebel trim level you'll find more off-road specialized features come into play like LED headlights, fortified suspension and shocks, front tow hooks, fog lights, 3.92 axle ratio, satellite radio, an enlarged driver information display, hill descent control, a driver seat that's power-adjustable, a 115-volt outlet, electronic-locking rear axle, class IV hitch receiver, and specialized off-roading tires. The Laramie trim brings with it a few luxurious features like rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, a 20/20/40-front split bench, ventilated and heated front seating, driver-side memory, power-adjustable pedals, heated steering, and keyless entry. The Longhorn trim level brings home the comfort features such and more with things like 20-inch wheels, a spray-in bedliner, automatic high beams, power tailgate release, chrome side steps, heated and ventilated rear seats, and an onboard navigation system. The 1500's last trim is the Limited, which will see the 1500 gain premium-leather bucket seating, blind-spot monitoring, an adjustable air suspension, power-retractable side steps, rear cross-traffic alerts, and a chrome exterior trim.

2019 Ford F-150 Features & Design

There are but five trims available to choose between when it comes to the 2019 Ford F-150, which isn't unimpressive but is a reduction in choice compared to the 1500. The XL trim starts things off as the F-150's most basic trim, coming with such features as a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 17-inch wheels, vinyl flooring, rearview camera, driver information display, automatic high beams and headlights, a pre-wired trailer connection, 4.2-inch central display, air conditioning, and trailer sway control. At the XLT trim level the F-150 gains rear privacy glass, alloy wheels, keypad entry, FordPass Wi-Fi, additional interior storage, chrome bumpers, fog lights, and an 8-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration. The Lariat trim level gains driver-seat memory settings, 18-inch wheels, automatic dual-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, a trailer hitch, keyless ignition, leather upholstery, and keyless entry. The Platinum trim level adds a bit more luxury with 20-inch wheels, wood and aluminum interior accents, and power-deployed running boards. Last of the F-150's trims is the Limited, which gets 22-inch wheels, an extended gas tank, and upgraded leather upholstery.

Conclusions

While both vehicles bring a lot to the table, and the similarities are close at times, we think we have to give it to the 2019 RAM 1500 as the better pick between it and the Ford F-150. There are more options available in terms of engines when it comes to the F-150, but only the highest end of those options will reliably outclass either of the two that are available for the 1500. The opposite seems to have become the case when it comes to each vehicle's features. The 1500 not only has more options to choose between when it comes to trims levels and the features each of those levels brings to the table, but each of the 1500's trims really feels like you're getting a good amount for choosing that higher trim, something that can't always be said going up the F-150's trim ladder. So if you were undecided at the top of this page hopefully at this point you'll have the same thought as we do in deciding that the 2019 RAM 1500 is the better choice all around.
