A Battle As Old As Time: The Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500
While the war has always raged on in the province of Alberta, Ontario is now feeling the rumble between the two pickup truck titans. In one corner, the Ford F-150 has been the cornerstone in this segment for well over 50 years. In the other, the Ram 1500 received one of its biggest redesigns in history, implementing a newer aerodynamic body and a mid-hybrid drivetrain.

Starting from the base model trucks for both brands, the Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500 have comparable horsepower and torque specs. However, choosing the F-150 gives you better towing and payload capacities, as well as better fuel efficiency, all while being priced at just $3,000 less. If you’re looking for a base model truck that gives you great value, the F-150 is by far the best choice.
