The Powerful 2019 Ram 1500 vs the Mighty 2019 Ford F-150
Full-sized pickup trucks are some of the most sought-after vehicles on the market today. Their exceptional versatility makes them perfect for work and for play. And the 2019 Ram 1500 does an excellent job of making your work more efficient and your leisure time more exciting.
This year, the 2019 Ram 1500 has been newly redesigned to give you better towing capacity, more interior room, and the latest and greatest in technology features. This versatile pick-up truck was named Motortrend's Truck of the Year this year and for good reason. To illustrate just how well the 1500 stacks up against the competition, we will compare it to one of the most notorious trucks on the market today: The 2019 Ford F-150.
With the 1500s active air dams and its exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner air suspension, this truck delivers best-in-class aerodynamics.
The Ford F-150s bulky design allows the wind to push against the truck more, making it less aerodynamic.
The 1500s exterior was also specifically designed for convenience and efficiency. The bed comes equipped with two bedside storage compartments. And with the power-release tailgate, you are able to access the bed of the truck with just a touch of the key fob.
The F-150 offers no exterior storage compartments.
The Ram 1500 may look rugged and tough on the outside, but the interior was designed with comfort and convenience in mind. 1500 offers the most interior space in its class. The back seat has plenty of legroom to comfortably accommodate fully-grown adults. The back seats also recline, so if you have friends or co-workers that are riding with you, they will be able to kick back and relax in the comfortable back seats.
In the front seat, drivers will be able to ensure that they never get lost again. The extra -large 12-inch touchscreen display comes equipped with a top-of-the-line navigation system, SiriusXM 360L radio, and surround-view camera to ensure that you are able to clearly see behind you when reversing.
The front part of the cabin can also double as your own personal portable office. The large centre console folds up to reveal a flat surface that can hold a 15-inch laptop and a slot to store your files and other documents.
Powerful and Efficient
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 comes equipped with the legendary 5.7L HEMI V8 engine. For more torque, 1500 also offers an available eTorque system that works with a 48-volt battery to deliver brake energy regeneration, seamless start and stop options, and adds 130 lb-ft of torque to the already impressive engine.
