Comparing the Ford F-150 and RAM 1500 pickup trucks at Peach State Ford

When it's time to buy your next truck in Cedartown, you will be faced with many different options, including the popular Ford F-150 and RAM 1500. Both of these trucks have many different benefits that drivers around Polk County love, so let's compare the F-150 to the RAM 1500 - and see why truck buyers keep selecting the F-150 year after year.

Trim Levels and Customization Options

The Ford F-150 comes in six different trims, ranging from a simple working truck to a top working truck with a luxury interior. Buyers can still choose a truck that carries up to three people with the base trim, while the RAM 1500 does not offer a three-person cab. The Ford F-150 comes with six engines to choose from and three different bed sizes. The RAM comes with only three engine options and two bed sizes. The top tow range of the F-150 is 13,200 pounds, whereas the RAM 1500 is limited to 12,700. The RAM offers three engines that can be modified, but it will never approach the performance offered by the top F-150 engines.

Price-wise, the F-150 starts a bit lower, but the top trim level available costs more than the highest RAM 1500 trim. However, the Raptor, which is the top Ford F-150 trim, is an off-road hero, and a vehicle with this capability is not offered in the RAM line, even though RAM does carry an off-road vehicle. Both vehicles offer a diesel engine option. The F-150 has more torque and horsepower than the RAM 1500 and is sure to turn heads around Bremen, GA.

Ford Safety Features

Both the Ford F-150 and the RAM 1500 are well-known for their safety amongst drivers in Temple, GA. Buyers, however, will note there are fewer electronic safety devices available on the RAM. Conventional driver assist devices are offered as standard on the F-150, while in the RAM 1500, these are only options in the highest trims. The Ford F-150 offers the same important safety features at every trim level.

Ford F-150 Design

The new Ford F-150 comes with more cargo space than the RAM, both interior and exterior, which drivers in Cedartown appreciate. The RAM's windshield provides the driver with less depth than the F-150. The F-150 offers four interior combinations, the RAM only two. The RAM 1500 offers a variety of technical abilities, including the ability to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for your passengers to connect to. However, Ford offers many of the same technology as standard options at higher trim levels.


The Ford F-150's body is less curved than the RAM 1500, but this gives the Ford its extra cargo and passenger space. The F-150 comes with a variety of exterior bumpers and chrome edging that are sure to turn heads around Dallas, GA. The RAM 1500 offers far fewer exterior customization options. Both vehicles offer four-wheel drive as an option, but only the F-150 includes this as standard on some trims.
