The 2020 RAM 1500 is a powerhouse. Equipped with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine as its base engine and capable of 260 hp and 480 Ib-ft of torque, RAM 1500 is a light-duty pickup capable of getting jobs done. Though the Ford F-150 has six engine options compared to the four that RAM offers, RAM more than makes up for it by making each option more powerful than the one that came before. The F-150 or RAM 1500 are both powerful vehicles, but by the end of this comparison, we’re confident that out of these two light-duty trucks, the RAM 1500 will be your choice.

RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Engine And Performance

The RAM 1500 offers four engine options, all of which offer max horsepower and torque capabilities. The Ford F-150 offers two more engine options than the RAM 1500, but the RAM provides more horsepower and torque at their highest trim levels. Both the Ford F-150 and RAM 1500 offer diesel engine options for truck drivers who need a little more towing capacity than the other engine options provide. See below for engine specs on the two models, and see if the F-150 or RAM 1500 has the power you need for your next truck.

  • Ford F-150 Engine Options: The Ford F-150 offers six engine options for Humboldt drivers to choose from. The most powerful non-diesel engine option is a 3.6L EcoBoost® V6 engine and is capable of 450 hp.
  • RAM 1500 Engine Options: The RAM 1500 offers four engine options, including a diesel option that offers maximum horsepower and towing capacity. Its base engine is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with eTorque and capable of more horsepower and torque than the F-150 base engine. The RAM 1500 generates up to 395 hp with its V6 engine.
  • RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 Fuel Economy: Both the F-150 and RAM 1500 have diesel options, but the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine option for the RAM 1500 offers better fuel economy and horsepower than the F-150. The RAM 1500 gets 32 mpg on the highway compared to the F-150’s 30 mpg; The RAM wins again with horsepower and torque — 260 hp and 480 Ib-ft of torque compared to the 250 hp and 440 Ib-ft of the Ford.

RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Towing Capacity And Utility

  • Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 V8 Towing Capacity: The 2020 RAM 1500 can tow 12,750 pounds of cargo using the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. With the V8 engine that Ford offers at the same level, it can only carry about 11,500 pounds.
  • Ford F-150 vs. RAM 1500 V6 Towing Capacity: The RAM 1500 can tow 12,560 pounds using its 3.0L EcoDiesel® V6 engine, all while offering a lower fuel economy than the Ford F-150.
