The 2021 Ford F-150 and the 2021 Ram 1500 are two of the most popular full-size truck models — but which option is the best for your needs? Once you compare the two models, it’s clear that the F-150 is the best choice for both work and play in Trail, British Columbia.
Capability is one of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a new truck. If you look at the towing and payload numbers for the 2021 F-150 and 2021 Ram 1500, the F-150 easily wins out. It boasts a best-in-class max towing rating of 6,350 kg and a best-in-class max payload rating of 1,508 kg. The Ram truck offers significantly less capability with a max tow rating of 5,783 kg and a max payload of 1,043 kg.
Connectivity matters when you’re constantly on the go. While both the Ford and Ram pickup trucks come with standard infotainment systems, the F-150 has an even more high-tech version available. SYNC® 4 gives you over-the-air updates, cloud-based connectivity, and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The Ram’s Uconnect® infotainment system can’t keep pace, offering fewer of these convenient, cutting-edge features.
If you’re looking to make your day-to-day life easier, a truck can really help. The Ford goes above and beyond with features that the 2021 Ram 1500 just doesn’t offer. The Ford comes available with the class-exclusive Pro Power Onboard™ generator, which lets you use your truck as a mobile generator. With the F-150, you can also opt for the available Interior Work Surface, which turns your cabin into a mobile office, and the available Max Recline Seats, which will help you relax on your lunch break. The Ram 1500 isn’t available with either of these.
With its superior capability, tech, and convenience, the 2021 Ford F-150 is the truck to beat. To learn more, you’re invited to test-drive the F-150 here at AM Ford in Trail.
