Comparing the 2019 F-150 with the 2019 Ram at Lake City Ford
Here at Lake City Ford, the top location for new and used Ford trucks in Williams Lake, BC, we understand that truck buyers need utility with their purchase—and not at the expense of a great deal either. We know you’ll be comparing vehicles, so we figured we’d help by comparing them for you. With that in mind we’ve put together a comparison between the Ram 1500, and North America’s best selling truck—the Ford F-150. Read on to learn how these two trucks, and more specifically two of their most sought after trim levels, stack up against each other.
Truck design has come a long way over the years, from boxy cabs with a sole bench seat to the modern iterations that offer athletic looks and comfort on-par with any other vehicle on the road. The 2019 Ram 1500 offers a variety of trim levels, colours, and wheel options, and is clearly identified by the bold letters in its grille. Inside, the Ram 1500 sports a fairly mundane interior depending on the trim level, boasting niceties like dual-zone temperature control and a fold-down centre console. Infotainment comes by the way of a Uconnect touchscreen, while performance information is brought to you by an in-cluster display. The 2019 F-150 offers a similarly athletic look, however, offers a bit more in the way of body-utility thanks to its high-strength, military-grade aluminum frame—a design feature that creates a lighter and stronger truck. The interior of the F-150 offers more in the way of unique finishes and utility, while Ford’s SYNC® infotainment system can’t be beaten for capability and ease of use. Finally, the FordPass™ Connect app offers convenient features that just aren’t found with other manufacturers—allowing you to truly focus on the task at hand.
Unlike the Ram, the 2019 Ford F-150 offers:
- A high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body
- A fully boxed, high-strength steel frame
- Class-exclusive Fox Live Valve racing shocks
- A greater choice of engine options
- Best-in-class towing
- Best-in-class payload
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- BLIS (Blind Spot Monitoring) with Trailer Coverage
- Class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist
- FordPass Connect
- and more!
Here at Lake City Ford, we know a hard-working truck is a truck that earns your trust. And while both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 are powerful trucks capable of getting the job done, the Ford F-150 is just that much more dynamic. It all starts with that high-strength aluminum frame mentioned earlier; after shaving off weight from the F-150—but not at the expense of strength and durability—Ford’s engineers were able to create stronger engines, and more complex transmissions. So while the Ram lineup offers a choice of 3 engines all matched to an 8-speed automatic transmission, Ford gives you the choice between six different engines. With Ford’s available 10-speed automatic transmission you have access to an incredibly smooth and powerful drive, that gives you unparalleled control over a more-than healthy dose of horsepower and torque.
