Ram 1500 vs. the Competition

Why the Ram 1500 Is the King of the Truck Segment


There’s a reason that Ram was the fast-growing truck brand in 2014 and had to increase production of the incredibly popular Ram 1500 light-duty pickup we love so much here at Dave Warren Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. They’re everything that truck enthusiasts are looking for in a truck– efficient, powerful, and fully-loaded, with a luxury feel. Here’s how the Ram 1500 measures up to some fierce competition, the Ford F-150:

Ram 1500 vs. the Ford F-150

More Efficiency: The Ram 1500 offers up to 23 combined mpg compared to the estimated 20 combined mpg of the Ford F-150. The 1500 also offers a maximum highway driving range of 728 miles compared to the F-150’s 595 mile range.

Better Warranty Options: The 1500 offers a 5-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty and the F-150 comes with a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. We’ll let you do the math.

Superior Towing: The 1500 4×2 offers a maximum towing capacity of 9,200 lbs. compared to the 6,300 lbs maximum towing capacity of the F-150 4×2.

Extra Available Features: An available cargo management system, four-corner air suspension, and 8.4-inch touchscreen round out a bevy of 1500 features not available for the F-150.

The Ram 1500 vs. the Chevy Silverado 1500

Fuel-efficiency and range: When equipped with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, the Ram 1500 gets an EPA-estimated 29 highway mpg, while the Silverado 1500 only delivers an EPA-estimated 24 highway mpg when equipped with a 4.3-liter EcoTech3 V6 engine. The Ram 1500 also goes farther distances, with a driving range of up to 754 miles on one tank of gas– well over 100 miles more than the Silverado 1500.

Maximum towing: The Ram 1500 delivers a maximum towing capacity of 7,950 lbs., while a similarly-equipped Silverado 1500 delivers only 5,600 lbs. of max. towing. Now you know which truck to hitch your trailer to.
