When you are in the market for a new vehicle, it can be tough to determine which model is best for you when there are so many that appear similar on the market. This is especially true for pickup trucks, because the vast majority of their differences are under the hood and in the cabin, making it difficult to tell on the surface how different they are. That's why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because it allows you to put two models up side by side to examine their details and determine which one offers more of the features and capabilities you are looking for. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2019 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150.
While the Ford F-150 offers a lower starting price point and higher fuel economy estimates, the Ram 1500 offers more power under the hood and more comfort and convenience features inside, making it the better option overall for consumers. The 2019 Ram 1500 has a sleek design and seats up to six passengers, more than the base model of the Ford F-150 can, which maxes out at three passengers. Let's take a closer look at some of the key features and differences between these two models!
