2015 RAM 1500 vs 2015 Ford F-150 near West Palm Beach, FL

The 2015 Ram 1500 is a top contender in the full-size pickup segment, thanks to a winning combination of strong powertrains, a smooth ride and a well-trimmed cabin. The redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 may not look all that different, but those familiar lines disguise what is unquestionably the most sophisticated and capable version of this best-selling pickup ever to hit the road.

2015 RAM 1500 Power & Handling

The Ram's base V-6 is still the best choice for any truck user that needs an open bed more than they need a towing appliance. The 3.6-liter V-6 puts out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, and comes linked with an eight-speed automatic transmission. With max towing of 6,500 pounds, the six-cylinder Ram's one of the lightest-duty propositions in full-size trucks. It will haul without much effort, though the engine note moves from a V-8-like sound just off idle to a more strained one once it climbs to highway speed. And though it takes a few tries to reach for a rotary shift knob and not a shift lever, the eight-speed automatic really makes the V-6 a relevant choice, it doesn't hunt endlessly or needlessly for the right gear.

2015 Ford F-150 Power & Handling

The leaner engine lineup now counts three V6s, two of them turbocharged, and just a single V8. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine replaces the former 3.7-liter; it rates 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque, enabling a peak towing capacity of 7,610 lbs and a top payload capacity of 1,910 lbs. We were only able to drive it on an off-road course, with no chance to test towing or street performance. For now we'll leave the fleet-spec impressions to the spec sheet itself: this base F-150's lost enough weight that Ford now offers it as a four-door SuperCrew.

2015 RAM 1500 Features & Design

The 2015 Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup available in multiple body styles. The regular cab generally seats three and is available with either a 6-foot, 4-inch or 8-foot cargo bed. The extended cab ("Quad Cab") can seat up to six and comes only with the 6-foot-4 bed. The crew cab increases rear-seat legroom and is available with either a 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 bed. There are six main trim levels: Tradesman, Express, HFE, SLT, Sport and Laramie.

2015 Ford F-150 Features & Design

The 2015 Ford F-150 is a full-size pickup offered in regular, extended  and crew cab body styles. There are three bed lengths: 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet and 8 feet. The new F-150 is also available in five trim levels, including XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum.

Conclusions

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. The Ford F-150 has a significantly larger turning radius than the RAM 1500, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots. If you are looking for a vehicle with more power, the RAM 1500 is the better choice.
