2013 Ram 1500 vs. 2013 Ford F-150
Here at Crestview Chrysler in Regina, the local Ram dealer for the Moose Jaw area, we know we have some of the hardest working customers around. What better way is there to come through for those folks than by providing a tough, powerful, ultra-capable truck like the 2013 Ram 1500 that can get the job done for them every time? There are other trucks out there, however, and if you’re searching for a new pickup truck to meet your needs you might come across the 2013 Ford F-150. Let’s see how these two models stack up against each other so you can make an informed decision between the two.
- Engine: When it comes to power, the 2013 Ram 1500 reigns supreme over the 2013 Ford F-150. The Ram 1500 is equipped with a 4.7L V-8 capable of 310 kW and 330 N-m of torque to get you, and whatever cargo you might be hauling where you need to go without impacting performance. The F-150’s engine is a 4.3L V-6 that lags behind with only 302 kW and 278 N-m of torque.
- Shift Control: The Ram 1500 offers sequential shift control with its 6-speed automatic transmission. Drivers who can appreciate the use of lower gears when they need to while carrying large cargo will enjoy the added control. The F-150 does not offer any form of sequential shift control.
- Design: Upon first glance, the Ram 1500 features some cabin amenities that are both stylish and rugged. For example, the 1500’s instrument panel insert has a metallic look that also compliments the durable, but comfortable vinyl seats. The F-150 has no particular interior styling to it and is outfitted with generic cloth seats.
- Entertainment: There is no shortage of media functionality from the new Ram 1500. AM/FM Radio with satellite radio capability, a 6-speaker sound system, and radio data to let you know exactly what song is playing on your favorite station is all standard with the 1500. The F-150’s radio is not satellite capable, only has 4 speakers, and does not feature a radio data reading system.
