2017 Ram 1500 vs. 2017 Ford F-150

We believe that the 2017 Ram 1500 is the preferable option over the 2017 Ford F-150 for various reasons, such that it comes with a longer list of trim levels and a lower starting MSRP. That means drivers can find an ideal truck for a price that suits their budget much easier with the Ram. However, the biggest difference lies in its composition-as showcased by these three points:

  • The 2017 Ram 1500 produces a higher output of firepower, even at the most basic level. Armed with the 3.6L Pentastar® V6, it wields a maximum of 305 horsepower as well as 269 pound-feet of torque. These ratings are significantly better than the base engine onboard the 2017 Ford F-150 which generates only 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. For more strength still, an advanced 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 and 5.7L HEMI® V8 are also available.
  • Additionally, the 2017 Ram 1500 will allow you to travel farther thanks to its efficiency. This is largely due to its powertrain which is reinforced with a standard Torqueflite® 8 Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission. Integrated with a Thermal Management System that optimize its energy usage, this transmission can switch gears with ease and offers faster acceleration. Combined with a 26-gallon fuel tank capacity and an economy of 25 highway MPG, which is three more gallons and one more MPG than the competitor, this truck will allow you to travel farther than the 2017 Ford F-150.
  • Hard work requires a tough tool, and the 2017 Ram 1500 is just that! Its 50K psi high-strength steel frame, fortified with eight strategically incorporated crossmembers, is highly durable. Better still, its structure is designed to enhance maneuverability too. For instance, it has a turning radius of 39.5 feet, which is tighter than the 4.7 feet turning radius of the 2017 Ford F-150. Not to mention, there are several features like Hill Start Assist and Electronic Stability Control included as a standard too. That means Ram owners can drive with steadfast confidence.
