In the world of classic pickup trucks, Ford and Ram are both big names. You can rest assured that you'll see true quality in whichever brand you choose. However, there is always a clear winner when the two are paired against one another. In the case of the F-150 versus the Ram 1500, we found that the F-150 comes out on top. The 2020 F-150 has kept its classic appearance, appeals to all customers, and wins against the Ram in terms of performance. Visit Jacky Jones Ford of Hayesville to find your ideal pickup truck and read on to learn more about why the F-150 is the top contender!  

Exteriors and Interiors in Top-Class Full-sized Pickup Trucks

The Ram 1500 has had an overhaul for 2020 when it comes to appearances. With redesigned headlights, a new grille design, and an off-road trim, it looks quite intimidating on the road. While there is charm in an aggressive appearance, it's not always what you want. Sometimes, you just want a classic pickup silhouette, and the F-150 delivers. It's a classic American favorite, and Ford knows this; that's why they haven't changed much about its design. One important thing to note, though, is that the Ram 1500 has eliminated the option for a single cab. This alienates it from more everyday buyers, while Ford keeps its single cab, crew cab, and extended crew cab options.  

Engine Performance Reigns Supreme in the 2020 Ford F-150

Pickup trucks need to be able to handle just about any situation with superb performance. The Ford F-150 offers six engine options to appeal to every buyer. Whether you're looking for a more everyday engine like the 3.3-liter V6, or you need something heavy duty like the High-Output 3.5-liter turbocharged V6, the F-150 has the engine for you. From gas to diesel, it offers it all. The Ram 1500 only offers 3 engine choices, and they aren't quite as varied. You could get the most basic performance out of its 3.6-liter V6 or use its 3.0-liter diesel. There's not a lot of middle ground, which doesn't leave a lot of flexibility in price range.  

Off-Roading Capabilities - Raptor vs. Rebel

If you're more interested in the rugged side of driving, the F-150 offers some of the best off-roading packages available on the market. The F-150 Raptor trim is created specifically for off-roading and beats every competition in terms of power and performance. The Ram 1500 is capable, and you can outfit it with off-roading packages, but it's never going to quite reach the F-150's level. This is just one more reason why we believe the F-150 wins this competition.
