Shop New Ram 1500 Models

On the hunt for a light-duty full-size pickup near Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, TX, that can do more than just tow and haul? You’re in the right place! Both the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 Ford F-150 offer an impressive mix of customization options, high-powered performance, and top-notch technology features.

In this comparison, we at Dallas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will show you how these two vehicles stack up against each other in the categories you care about most. Read on to see if the Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150 is a better fit for your needs!

Ram 1500 vs F-150: Performance Specs

The 2021 Ram 1500 gives you plenty of options, so you’ll get the right configuration for your needs. This model offers five powerful engines in its powertrain lineup, including the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with an eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System.

With this engine under the hood, you’ll get the perfect balance between power and efficiency. You’ll get 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Dominate the work site as well as your drive there.

Swap this standard engine out for an available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine that can be equipped with eTorque technology. Either way, you’ll get a whopping 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque to work with.

With the 2021 Ford F-150, you’ll have several V6 and V8 engines to choose from, starting with the standard 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine that puts out just 290 horsepower. Almost all the Ram 1500’s engines put out more horsepower than the F-150’s engines.

Ram 1500 vs F-150: Impressive Equipment

With the 2021 Ford F-150, you’ll have a towing capacity of over 13,000 pounds. Meanwhile, the Ram 1500 offers a towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when the vehicle is properly equipped. Although you’ll have slightly more towing capability with the F-150, it comes at a price of missing out on all the great pieces of equipment the Ram 1500 brings to the table.

For starters, the Ram 1500 comes standardly equipped with a class-exclusive TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission. This system works together with the eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System to maximize every drop of fuel using next-generation technology.

The Ram 1500 also offers an available class-exclusive Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension system. Even when you’re towing the maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, this system will automatically keep your truck level on all kinds of surfaces to keep you confident. The F-150 is lacking in this realm as well.

Interior Design

Ram 1500 vs F-150: Interior Design & Space

Both the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 Ford F-150 offer several cab options, including spacious 6-passenger cabins. Inside these trucks’ available Crew Cabs, you’ll have plenty of space. That being said, the Ram 1500 goes above and beyond with 45.2 inches of best-in-class rear-row legroom. Compare this to the 43.6 inches of maximum rear-row legroom offered by the F-150.

That’s not the only thing to be excited about in the rear row of the Ram, though. You’ll find a slew of class-exclusive features waiting for you back there, including available reclining rear seatbacks with eight degrees of recline. You can also add available second-row heating and ventilation for maximum comfort throughout the cabin.

In terms of comfort, the F-150 has available heated front and rear seats. You can even opt for ventilated front seats, but you won’t find the Ram 1500’s above comfort features in the rear seats of the F-150’s model, no matter the trim level you choose.

You’ll also miss out on a handy customizable center console in the F-150. Up front in the Ram 1500, you’ll get an available reconfiguration center console. Not only can you configure it in four different ways to suit your specific needs, but it also offers ample space for your items.

Safely store your essential files while still being able to reference them when you’re on the worksite with this console’s bin for hanging file folders. It also has enough space to stow a 15-inch laptop safely. Plus, you can charge five devices with Type-C USB high-speed charging ports inside the console.

Ram 1500 vs F-150: Technology Features

Not only is the 2021 Ram 1500 powerful and incredibly customizable—it’s also tech-savvy. At the helm of the cabin, you’ll find a collection of connectivity features like you’ve never seen before. It takes the form of the available Uconnect® 12.0-inch with Navigation.

This advanced system sports a 12-inch touchscreen display on which you can access all kinds of helpful features. Follow navigation, get real-time traffic and weather updates, access your smartphone apps, stream satellite radio, and more.

You can even accomplish several of these features at one time thanks to the split-screen capability of this system. The F-150 also offers an intuitive infotainment system with many of the same features; however, it does not have the same split-screen capabilities.

The Ram 1500 continues to reign supreme with its available 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System when it comes to entertainment. This system envelops you and your passengers in your favorite audio with its 19 strategically placed speakers, more than the Ford F-150, which only has a maximum of 18 speakers.

The Ram 1500 keeps going with ample charging inside the cabin. The cabin will have access to a full-blown media center featuring up to four ultra-fast charging ports and up to three 115-volt outlets. Transform the cabin of your Ram 1500 into a mobile office with ease.

2021 Ram 1500 vs 2021 Ford F-150: Which One?

As you can see, both the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 Ford F-150 offer some impressive features and capabilities. However, nothing can compete with the Ram 1500’s many class-exclusive features, high-end cabin, and top-of-the-line technology features.

Now that you’ve had a taste of what the Ram 1500 has to offer, it’s time to get behind the wheel and experience it for yourself. Drivers near Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, Texas, can schedule a test drive in the Ram 1500 by giving us a call at Dallas CDJR today!
