2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 Ford F-150


For Orland Park truck lovers in search of power and convenience, there are plenty of options, but most come down to two: 2019 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150. Bettenhausen CDJR breaks down some of the key differences so you can  choose the right truck for fun or adventure.



The Ram offers features that make every job more manageable (including spacious quad and crew cabs), whether it’s heading out to Hickory Creek for a day of outdoor adventure, or setting your sights on that next Mokena job:

  • Accessing your tools in the back of a loaded truck can be a challenge – unless you have a RamBox cargo system which allows you to securely store essentials in the bed’s sidewalls, making it easy to get what you need without disturbing what you’re hauling.
  • The Ford F-150 lacks an integrated storage system, so tools and gear can get buried under other equipment, making it hard o get what you need if the truck bed is loaded.


Towing Capability

The Ram 1500 has not only offers drivers conveniences like standard exterior power mirrors to help monitor the truck’s payload – it offers best-in-class V8 towing:

  • The 2019 Ram 1500 has the highest conventional towing capability of any full-sized truck – 6,280 pounds – allowing it to tow heavy trailers and equipment without any alteration. It also has best-in-class V8 towing of 12,750 pounds.
  • The F-150 offers just 5,000 pounds of standard towing capacity, so if drivers want to hook up a camper, they may need to make some changes or upgrade to a tougher vehicle first. Its max V8 towing comes in at just 12,000 pounds.
