See How the 2019 Ram 1500 Stacks up to the Ford F-150 in Milford DE

There's no denying it, the F-150 has been a top pick for many in the full-size pickup truck class for years, and who can blame it? It's been around the block, taking years of experience to the design floor year after year. That doesn't mean that the Ram 1500 has to concede the top spot this year. Thanks to the all-new redesign, the 2019 Ram 1500 just might unseat the F-150 this year for your pick in Rehoboth Beach.

Performance Numbers

The Ford F-150's standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6, which offers 290 horsepower, while the Ram 1500's base engine offers a more powerful 305-horsepower. Right out of the gate, you'll get more power for your money with the Ram 1500 in Dover. You can also opt for a 395-horsepower V8, that is available with a mild-hybrid assist system known as "eTorque". eTorque aids in performance, while boosting efficiency, so you can tow more while still keeping your wallet happy.

With the Ford F-150's V8 equipped, it can only tow 11,600 pounds, while the Ram 1500 can tow a maximum of 12,750 pounds and has a maximum payload rating of 2,300 pounds with its V8 and eTorque equipped. Each truck boasts big numbers when it comes to towing, but when you combine these hefty numbers with the unrivaled ride quality and handling of the Ram 1500, the choice is even easier. Whether you're on winding roads around Easton MD, taking the highway from Salisbury MD, or just running errands around town in Millsboro, the Ram 1500 will keep you comfortable and happy, all day long.



Cargo and Comforts

Your truck not only has to have towing and hauling numbers and powerful engines under the hood but should pack the usable cargo space and amenities that you want for your crew, or your family. You'll find similar cab configurations on both, with seating for up to six. The Ram 1500 cab is spacious, comfortable, and well insulated from outside noise for a comfortable ride. The F-150 does offer premium materials, but the sticker-shock alone from choosing an upper trim level F-150 is enough to deter anyone. The Ram also offers the RamBox storage system, that adds in-bed storage compartments to keep your gear organized and safe with a lock-box style option to prevent theft. The F-150 doesn't offer a feature like this.

Technology

The Ford F-150 might boast the SYNC 3® infotainment system, but when you consider that you have to pay a pretty penny extra to get it over the downright basic SYNC system that is included standard, the Uconnect infotainment system is better than ever. The 2019 Ram 1500 offers a huge, 12-inch, touchscreen display with full navigation capabilities and a tablet-like interface that is easy to use, and easy to see. The Ford F-150 can't compete with a system like this, even with SYNC 3® equipped, the largest screen you'll find is only 8-inches. The standard Uconnect screen is a 5-inch touchscreen, where the standard infotainment on the F-150 is a 4.2-inch non-touchscreen display. For the right technology to get the job done or keep the whole family happy, the Ram 1500 is the smart choice in Georgetown DE.

Safety

Both trucks offer a rearview camera standard, as you might expect, and both do offer a long list of safety features. Available features for your Ram 1500 include parallel and perpendicular park assist, front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, and more. The F-150 offers similar features for Lewes drivers.

Come take a new Ram 1500 for a test drive here in Milford, and we are sure you'll choose it for your next full-size pickup truck over the Ford F-150.
