Every year, the RAM 1500 and the Ford 1500 lock horns in a battle to be the top light-duty pickup. Their long rivalry has put both models at the very top of their class — but is it the Ford F-150 or RAM 1500 that delivers exactly the capability and features you need on the job in Birmingham? We’ve gathered the specs so that you can compare the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 engines and features head-to-head.

RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Power and Capability

To get started, we’ll look at whether the Ford F-150 or RAM 1500 offers more at the base trim without requiring an upgrade. At a glance, it’s clear that the RAM 1500 base trim has more to offer in terms of raw power: 305 horsepower compared to 250 horses under the hood of the base Ford F-150. At higher trims, you can upgrade the RAM 1500 with a diesel engine or two V8 options for up to 395 hp. In a comparison of the RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 full trim lineups, the F-150 achieves more power overall — but you’ll need to pay for a trim upgrade. Compare RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-15 engine options below:

RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Technology Features

Next, we’ll consider safety systems, technology, and comfort amenities. Again, it’s helpful to check whether the Ford F-150 or RAM 1500 delivers a safer, more comfortable drive the next time you hit the highway to Hoover. Are the features you need more accessible on the Ford F-150 or RAM 1500? The 1500 comes standard with many features that are only available as upgrades on the F-150, including:
