The New Ram 1500 vs. the New Ford F-150

Interior

The Ford F-150 is one of the Ram 1500's toughest rivals, but it can't beat the Ram when it comes to overall refinement. People in Eureka will appreciate that the Ram 1500 has one of the nicest cabs in its class, with attractive styling and tons of top-notch materials. The Ford F-150 also has a comfortable interior, but it doesn't quite match the standards set by the Ram 1500.

The Ram 1500 has a roomy cabin with a best-in-class 45.1 inches of backseat legroom in Crew Cab models. Ford F-150 Crew Cabs only have 43.6 inches of rear leg room.

Performance/Capability

The Ram 1500 offers a choice of five available engines, including a 3.0-liter V6 diesel motor that produces 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. The Ford F-150 also offers several engines, but its diesel option only puts out 440 pound-feet of torque.

Sullivan, MO drivers will like the relaxed ride they get with the Ram 1500's standard coil spring suspension. The Ford F-150 is also easy to drive for its size, but you'll notice some bounciness from its solid rear axle and leaf springs setup.

Technology

The Ram 1500's Uconnect infotainment system is one of the most user-friendly systems on the market. Its well-organized menus, crisp graphics, and customizable shortcut buttons make it a cinch to operate while driving. An available 12-inch touch screen is unsurpassed by its competitors, and you have a choice of three premium stereo systems. The Ford F-150 also has an easy-to-use infotainment system, but it only offers one high-end audio system option.

The New Ram 1500 vs. the New Chevy Silverado 1500

Interior

People in Washington, MO will appreciate the Ram 1500's stellar interior, which is a clear step above most competitors' cabins - with quality materials and a good fit and finish. The Chevy Silverado 1500's cab looks somewhat dated, with more hard plastics than you'll find in the Ram.

Performance/Capability

If you want lower fuel expenses, go with the Ram 1500. When equipped with its base V6 engine and rear-wheel drive, this Ram gets 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The Chevy Silverado only gets 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway with its standard powertrain.

The Ram 1500 offers the RamBox® Cargo Management System, which has two lockable, drainable storage bins in the sides of the bed that St. Louis drivers can use to stow their tools or valuables. The Chevy Silverado 1500 doesn't offer that feature.

Technology

The Ram 1500 offers an available tablet-style 12-inch infotainment touch screen. The Chevy Silverado 1500's biggest touch screen is only eight inches long.

The New Ram 1500 vs. the New GMC Sierra 1500

Interior

The GMC Sierra 1500 has a quiet, well-built cabin with plenty of quality materials, but it can't match the luxurious feel of the Ram 1500's interior. Its Crew Cab has 45.1 inches of rear seat legroom compared to only 43.4 inches of second-row legroom in the Sierra 1500's largest cab.

Performance/Capability

Technology

The Ram 1500 has one of the best infotainment systems in its class, with a responsive touch screen, straightforward menu layouts, and an optional 12-inch touch screen.
