2014 Ram 1500 vs. 2014 Ford F-150

This year’s 2014 Motor Trend Truck of the Year was the 2014 Ram 1500 and with good reason. The Ram 1500 offers a modern truck with tough performance and plenty of amenities. You’re not going to find the same level of sophistication in other trucks like the 2014 Ford F-150. Still, the F-150 has been a popular truck for many years and likely has your attention, but maybe not for much longer.

Light-Duty Diesel

The 2014 Ram 1500 earned the Truck of the Year Award by bringing back diesel engine technology to the light duty pickup class. Ram’s 3.0L turbodiesel V6 produces 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Besides offering great power, it’s the most efficient light duty truck engine at 10.2L/100 km city and 7.1L/100 km highway.

In comparison, Ford’s most efficient engine, their 3.7L V6, is only rated at 12.6L/100 km city and 8.8L/100 km highway. If you want power without having to waste your wages on gas each month, turn to a new Ram Diesel at our Moose Jaw-area car dealership.

Ride Quality

Many truck drivers have gotten used to a rough, bumpy ride, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Ram 1500 is the only truck in its class to have a coil-spring rear suspension giving it a smooth, car-like driving experience whether you’re on road or towing over dirt and gravel. There’s also an optional air suspension to improve ride quality and drive height. You’re going to have a rougher time driving the Ford F-150.

Interior

The quality of an interior can be subjective, but Edmunds.com confirms “The Ram 1500’s cabin is as good as it gets in the pickup segment.” That’s thanks to its attractive design and high quality materials. The Ram 1500’s infotainment touchscreen system has also been praised for its easy, intuitive controls. In comparison, the Ford F-150 looks dated, cheap, and features a complicated touchscreen interface that’s hard to use while driving.
