How Does the 2019 Ford F-150 Compare to Competitors like the Ram 1500?

For decades now, the Ford F-150 has represented what many drivers in Sun Prairie and Waunakee consider to be the ideal pickup truck. Rugged, packed full of excellent features, and designed to deliver a high standard of high performance, you'd be hard pressed to something the F-150 can't handle.

That's especially true in 2019. Building off a major redesign that debuted last year, the 2019 F-150 delivers a wholly modern truck built to deliver a market-leading experience.

The big question that leaves for drivers, of course, is how does it compare to its competitors? New trucks like the Ram 1500 have also been pushing forward with impressive offerings that rival the F-150s. Let's take a look at what both bring to the table.

The 2019 Ford F-150

The 2019 F-150 brings back the lightweight aluminum chassis implemented by the 2018 truck. It also delivers a range of excellent features that include everything from advanced media features to equipment geared toward improving its already impressive performance. With six available powertrains and a heap of available trims and configurations, it's a versatile and powerful truck.

Performance: 3.3-liter V6 (290 horsepower, 265 pounds-feet of torque, 19/25 miles per gallon), 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 (325 horsepower, 400 pounds-feet of torque, 20/26 miles per gallon), 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 (250 horsepower, 440 pounds-feet of torque, 22/30 miles per gallon), 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 (375 horsepower, 470 pounds-feet of torque, 18/25 miles per gallon), 5.0-liter V8 (395 horsepower, 400 pounds-feet of torque, 12/17 miles per hour), 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 (450 horsepower, 510 pounds-feet of torque, 15/18 miles per gallon)

The 2019 Ram 1500


Mirroring many of the improvements the F-150 delivered in 2018, the Ram 1500 weighs less and delivers a range of valuable convenience and comfort features. Family friendly and capable, it has two available powertrains and a range of different trims available.

Performance: 3.6-liter V6 (305 horsepower, 269 pounds-feet of torque), 5.7-liter V8 (395 horsepower, 410 pounds-feet of torque, 15/22 miles per gallon)

Which One is the Right Truck for Me?

The Ram 1500 is an excellent truck. You won't be disappointed if you choose to drive it home to DeForest or Prairie du Sac. As good as the Ram 1500 can be, however, its options pale in comparison to the vast range of experiences the 2019 F-150 can provide.

With a lower starting price and a wider range of trims of and engine options, F-150 is well-equipped to satisfy a wide array of needs for a wide array of drivers. Its performance peaks go higher, and its overall package is more impressive.
