2021 Ram 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150: PRICING

In the US, trucks are instrumental for many reasons. Every potential buyer has their specific one, from either having to haul stuff around daily to simply wanting a more simple vehicle to operate. If trucks are your interest, then both the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 Ford F-150 are very fine choices, both starting around $30,000 MSRP, so let’s compare the two

2021 Ram 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150: FEATURES

Both interior and safety departments offer similar features on the base trims, apart from the base infotainment system. On the 2021 Ram 1500, the base trim doesn’t have compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; only the improved one has, which isn’t expensive. However, this trade comes with improved safety features as standard, the bigger one being an improved airbag system if things go wrong, both in the front and back. However, on higher trims, the features are more than plentiful. From park assistance to a surround camera, pedestrian emergency braking, a head-up display, many exterior features, a premium 12-inch infotainment system with all the bells and whistles, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, an improved audio system by Harman Kardon, and many more.

As far as powertrains are concerned, the 2021 Ram 1500 has plenty of options that are more in tune with a truck’s simplicity. As standard, it comes with a 3.6L V6 with eTorque, that is, a very simplistic hybrid powertrain by default that comes with 305 hp and 269 lb*ft of torque, but in the city, it will be helped by the hybrid system to get it started from stops much more effortless. The other options are even better, a 5.7L V8 with and without the eTorque, a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 on the Ram 1500 TRX, or a 3.0L turbodiesel V6. You can get the Ram 1500 in both rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. The F-150 comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine, with plenty of options but not as extensive as the ones that the Ram 1500 has, such as a competitor for the supercharged HEMI having only a singular fully hybrid powertrain.

I enjoy the customer service at York, in the service department. That is why I use this location for my service needs instead of where I purchased my 2022 Gladiator. We kinda had a mishap, this last visit, some lug nuts, not tighten and we didn't get far, still in the York lot, my husband runs in to grab a tech and they fixed the problem! Good thing we didn't make it to the highway. Ugh!
