Well, we thought it’d be a fair fight, but maybe next year, Ford. The RAM 1500 boasts a much larger available engine in its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V8 SRT® as compared to the F-150 model’s available 5.0-liter V8. And while the Ford F-150 certainly sports a standard transmission with two additional speeds and offers a remote tailgate release feature, that’s where the comparison stops. The RAM 1500 offers rock rails by Mopar® (for protection from flying debris), the RAMBox® Cargo Management system (for organizing anything that’s along for the ride), ventilated rear seats (for a cool, comfortable rear-seat experience) and 19 speakers with the available Harman Kardon® Premium Sound system (for those weekend adventures that need a little something extra).
