The reputation of the RAM 1500 as a tough pickup that takes no prisoners precedes it. But how does it stack up against the Ford F-150? Which truck could better handle the tough jobs that so many Auburn drivers find themselves doing, the Ford F-150 or RAM 1500? We think the Ram pickup wins that contest easily. To prove it to you, we’ve put together a detailed, side-by-side comparison below.



2022 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 – Under the Hood

Which pickup wields more raw power, the F-150 or RAM 1500? Drivers who do a lot of towing along our Kent roads will want to opt for the RAM 1500. It outclasses the Ford F-150 in both horsepower and towing capacity. Here are the specs for the base engine of each truck:

2022 RAM 1500

  • Horsepower – 305 hp
  • Base Towing Capacity – 7,740 Pounds

2022 Ford F-150

  • Horsepower – 290 hp
  • Base Towing Capacity – 5,000 Pounds

2022 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 – Diesel Engine Options

Tacoma drivers who are looking for a truck with a diesel engine don’t need to look in the direction of the Ford F-150. The 2022 Ford F-150 doesn’t even come with a diesel option. The Ram 1500, on the other hand, allows you the option to equip your truck with the powerful 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. Here are its specs:

  • 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 Engine Specs
  • 12,560-pound towing capacity
  • 480 lb-ft of torque
  • 260 horsepower

2022 RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 – Bed and Tailgate

Which truck has the more useful bed or tailgate, the F-150 or RAM 1500? How would you like a tailgate that can swing down, to the side, or even split down the middle to form two half-doors, enabling you to keep your trailer hitched while loading the bed or load your cargo directly on the bed without having to reach over an open tailgate? That’s what the Multi-Function Tailgate on the RAM 1500 allows you to do. You can’t do that in the F-150.

The RAM 1500 also comes with the RAMBox® Cargo Management System. This system has two lockable, waterproof storage bins (one on each side) built right into the box. But that’s yet another feature you won’t find in the Ford F-150.
