Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Performance Specifications
In the Ram 1500, you’ll get a Class-Exclusive1 TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission with thermal control to improve efficiency and durability. This transmission comes standard on all trims, making for smooth-shifting acceleration in low gears.
The Ram 1500 also offers three impressive engines, two of which sport eTorque technology, helping to maximize efficiency. Thanks to this technology, the Ram 1500 can achieve a best-in-class available V8 4×4 combined fuel economy.2
The base trim of the 2019 F-150, meanwhile, comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission that lacks the same technology. Although the F-150 uses a more advanced transmission for its EcoBoost® and V8 engines, it still can’t control the transmission fluid temperature the way the Ram 1500 can.
Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Incredible Storage Space
There’s no better place to store cargo in the 2019 Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 than in the cargo bed. These two truck each offer various cargo bed lengths, ensuring you can find one that suits your needs.
However, you’ll find more interior storage spaces in the Ram, including:
- Upper and lower dashboard gloveboxes
- Available in-floor rear cargo compartment (Crew Cab only)
- Available RamBox® Cargo Management System
The RamBox® system is a great achievement in storage, adding cubbies along both sides of the cargo bed for you to store toolboxes, jumper cables, duffel bags, and more. You can even transform a cubby into a cooler—just add ice, and you’re ready to go!
The F-150 has some tricks of its own, like cargo box lighting for when you’re working at night or in a dark garage, along with BoxLink™ moveable tie-downs to easily secure cargo. In the end, the Ram offers similar features to these, while the F-150 lacks anything like the RamBox® system.
Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Interior Features & Materials
The Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 both offer three cab styles, including two that offer a second row of seats. You’ll find plenty of room in the front row, with well over 40 inches of legroom in each truck. In the largest cab styles, the rear seats also offer more than 40 inches of legroom, giving taller adults plenty of space.
While the 2019 F-150 has standard cloth upholstery, the Ram 1500 goes a more upscale route by making vinyl upholstery standard. You’ll enjoy its easy-to-clean qualities and resistance to the usual wear and tear of daily driving. If you’d prefer, you can still opt for cloth in the Ram, or leather in either.
The Ram also offers folding rear seats, which fold upward to reveal a flat floor. Use it for storage, or sleep there in a pinch!
