There Are Many Great Rivalries-This Is One of Them: RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150

Pickup drivers here in the greater Fremont area will be able to smell this rivalry a mile away: the RAM 1500 is facing off against one of its biggest, longest-running rivals, the Ford F-150. For as long as pickup drivers have been choosing sides, there have been two prevailing camps, and chances are, if you come from one, you're not too willing to consider the other; well, here at Preferred Chrysler Dodge Jeep of Muskegon, we'd like to invite a few Ford fans here in the Muskegon area to dare to compare. Check out our one-on-one competitive comparison between the 2018 RAM 1500 and the 2018 Ford F-150-if we can't change your mind with cold hard facts, nothing will!

2018 RAM 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150

One thread of commonality runs between these two competitors: they're well matched. We'll do our best to point out areas of difference for Whitehall, MI drivers, but some things just come down to preference. But then again, that's why you shop Preferred. Now, without any more bad puns, the comparison:

  • Price: While price differs between these two, it's not by much; the 2018 RAM 1500 starts with an MSRP of $27,095, while the 2018 Ford F-150 starts just a little higher, at $27,380.
  • Comparable Configurations & Seating: Both the 2018 F-150 and 2018 RAM 1500 offer three cab options, seating for up to six passengers, and ample room for adult legs. In the 2018 Ford F-150, cloth is

    standard, and in the 2018 RAM 1500 vinyl upholstery features first. This is one of those preference things, where it depends on what you want        out of your truck, but if you ask us it's a lot easier to clean a hard day's work off vinyl than it is to get it out of cloth.
  • Comparable Bed Options & Storage: Like we said, these pickups are rivals for a reason, and cargo configurations and space don't differ much here. Each offers three bed lengths, with the 2018 Ford F-150's measuring 5.6-foot, 6.6-foot, and 8-foot bed respectively, while the 2018 RAM 1500 offers a 5.7-foot, 6.4-foot, and 8-foot beds. In the 2018 F-150, you'll find some built-in cargo management options, but RAM's answer to that is the available RamBox® Cargo Management System.
  • Power: When it comes to pickup trucks, power definitely matters, and that's one place where the 2018 RAM 1500 and the 2018 Ford F-150 differ-even if it is slightly. The 2018 RAM 1500 starts with a more powerful engine, a 3.6-liter V6 rated at 305 horsepower, while the Ford F-150 starts with a 3.3-liter V6 capable of 290 horsepower. The standard transmission in the
  • 2018 F-150 as well, an eight-speed automatic featuring in the RAM 1500 and a six-speed automatic starring in the F-150.

    Whether you come from a RAM family or you flew a different banner at home, the 2018 RAM 1500 promises to create converts. Still on the fence? Why not settle the debate with a test drive? We invite drivers from Montague to Ludington, MI to join us here in our Muskegon showroom for the test drive to settle the rivalry-or at very least, settle it personally, for you-we imagine the larger debate will rage on.
