By: Lange & Fetter Motors   |   28 Feb 2023

Power comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. And when it comes to finding a capable pickup truck that can handle the heftiest jobs, the Ford F-150 and RAM 1500 are two contenders that come to mind. While we might be a bit biased here at Lange & Fetter, there are numerous reasons why the F-150 stands out among the competition. Let’s see them go head-to-head and help you determine which vehicle is right for you! (Spoiler: Ford can’t be beat!)

Best-In-Class Towing

Both the 2022 Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 have the power and capability to help simplify a variety of towing tasks on or off the job. While the Ram 1500 has an impressive 12,750-pound maximum towing capacity, the F-150 has a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 14,000 pounds, allowing for even more functionality and versatility no matter what life has in store.

Along with offering an impressive towing capacity, Ford also takes care of you and everyone on the road through its wide range of towing features and advanced technologies.

  • Smart Hitch: activates through the available centre touchscreen display to weigh the trailer and distribute the weight equally to maintain the balance.
  • Smart Trailer Tow Connector: immediately alerts you when your trailer needs attention. You can view the tow screen display to find information about turn indicators, brake lamps and other things.
  • Dynamic Hitch Assist: helps you keep the hitch and trailer in sync by offering an on-screen guide.
  • Blind Spot Information System: helps you be mindful of the gap while changing lanes or taking wide turns.
  • Telescoping Trailer Tow Mirrors: these work in sync with the blind spot information system to create a sense of security and safety on the road.

The Right Price and the Right Trims

With endless configurations, trims, and powertrains to choose from, it's easier than ever to find the right F-150 to suit your needs. You can enjoy three more engine options than the RAM 1500 as well, including an available hybrid model. Plus, the F-150’s base model is already around $2000 cheaper than the RAM 1500. 

Interior Features

Rugged and muscular on the outside, the 2023 Ford F-150 exudes interior sophistication, comfort, and innovation along every surface. Each model offers available features like dual-zone automatic temperature control, heated and ventilated seats, and a heated steering wheel, so every passenger stays comfortable no matter the outside conditions. Plus, available wireless device charging and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot keeps everyone connected on the go while giving you access to premium infotainment systems. The Ford F-150 also has two other interior features that the RAM 1500 does not offer you, inclduing a built-in mobile generator as well as a maximum recline front seat system.
