How the 2019 Ram 1500 Stacks Up
If you’re uncertain about purchasing a new truck, you may want to consider all the benefits of making your next vehicle the 2019 Ram 1500. If you are not loyal to any brand of truck, then shopping for a new truck can be a real headache. The two big front runners for 2019 Trucks are the Ford® F150 and Ram® 1500.
The Ram truck has earned the MotorTrend Truck of the Year award, one of the most prestigious honors bestowed in the auto industry. In year’s past, the Ram 1500 has won this notable award in 2013 and 2014. This year, the Ram 1500 beat out the competition and was voted 2019 MotorTrend Truck of The Year. A quick comparison of the features that Ram has brought (compared to Ford) this year makes it clear to see why they are winning awards and dominating the market.
For the sake of comparison, if you look at the base models of each vehicle with the standard features equipped, the base engine offered on the 1500 series of Ram is a 3.6L V-6 compared to Ford's base of a 3.3L V6. The Ram has 305 Horsepower and brings 269lb⋅ft of torque, but the Ford only has 290 Horsepower and 265lb⋅ft of torque. The Ram 1500’s transmission is an 8-Speed compared to Ford's 6-Speed. Also, Ram gives consumers the added comfort of the air ride suspension while Ford does not have this feature.
