Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Ford F-150 than the RAM 1500. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford F-150 and the RAM 1500.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford F-150 as you will with the RAM 1500, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Ford F-150 or the RAM 1500, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.

Dimensions
The Ford F-150 is about the same width as the RAM 1500. The Ford F-150 is slightly shorter than the RAM 1500, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford F-150 doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the RAM 1500.

Handling
The Ford F-150 has a similar turning radius to the RAM 1500, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the RAM 1500, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Ford F-150 due to its slightly better towing capacity. The Ford F-150 has a little less horsepower than the RAM 1500.

Utility
