When you are in the market for a new vehicle, you might feel overwhelmed by all of the options available to you. That is why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because they allow you to put two models that appear similar up side by side to examine their differences and determine which one will offer more of the features and capabilities you are looking for. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2019 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150.
While these truck models appear very similar on the outside, the inside tells a different story. The Ram 1500 offers more convenience features and interior space than the Ford F-150, as well as more power under the hood to get you from point A to point B with ease. That's why we think the 2019 Ram 1500 is a better option overall for consumers, despite having a slightly higher starting MSRP.
