Which Truck is Right for You? 

Breaking down all of the numbers that go along with choosing a truck can be a hassle, so let us at Sherman Dodge lend a hand. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the 2017 Ram 1500 and the 2017 Ford F-150 to see which one offers more utility and convenience. These two strong competitors are exactly the kind of comparison that makes it difficult to choose, but a choice must be made! If you have any questions while reading through, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 855-511-6900 or utilize the chat function to the bottom, right-hand side of the screen to speak with our personable staff!

Let’s start with towing capability, because that’s a huge deciding factor on your part. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine equipped on the Ram 1500 produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission controlled by a rotary knob on the instrument panel, the Ram 1500 makes strides in shedding weight where it can for a more powerful ride. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that comes on the Ford F-150 does exert quite a bit of effort, clocking in at 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque, which sounds like a sizeable amount more than the Ram 1500 — and it is. But numbers are only numbers until put into practice, and you may be surprised to find that the Ram 1500 can tow more than the F-150. The Ram 1500s powerhouse has an 8,913-lb. towing capacity1 while the F-150 falls short with its 7,600-lb. towing capacity2. What we can take from this is that noting the numbers is never a bad thing, but it certainly isn’t everything!

When it comes to standard features inside, both of these vehicles are very customizable. The Ram 1500 boasts a Radio 3.0 system, six speakers, and a media hub with a USB port and auxiliary jack. The F-150 offers a similar getup, but doesn’t provide the remote USB port3 that the Ram 1500 does. Both have a number of additional features that can be equipped on this trim to make it exactly what you’re looking for — or you can take a look on higher trims for bundled packages you’ll love. The Ram 1500 is notable for its economical price to go along with its jam-packed trims, such as the Lone Star. Equipped with a 5-inch touchscreen display, one year of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio4, and a 7-inch Multi-View Cluster. It really amps up the tech with the 8.4-inch touchscreen display, GPS antenna input, and integrated voice command with Bluetooth® 5. The same level of features on the F-150 starts at a higher MSRP, and it doesn’t even provide the same size screens!

We hope that this comparison between the 2017 Ram 1500 vs 2017 Ford F-150 in Skokie, IL, has helped you make a decision on a which truck is the better match for you. Visit us at Sherman Dodge to see the Ram 1500 in person, especially since we’re conveniently located at 7601 N. Skokie Boulevard in Skokie, IL! We hope to see you soon!
