A Faceoff Between Working Trucks: 2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2016 Ford F-150

When you’re in the market for a new work truck, you want to be sure that you’re getting the best deal. Here at David Stanley Dodge, we know choosing between brands can be an exhausting and arduous process, so we’ve compared the 2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2016 Ford F-150 near Tulsa, OK, to ensure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck; we’ll put the 2016 Ram 1500 to the test against the 2016 Ford F-150.

First up, we’ll look under the hood because you need power when you’re at work in your truck. The Ram 1500 has a 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine that flexes its muscles with 395 horsepower and 410 lbs.-ft. of torque, compared to 3.5L V6 in the F-150. You’ll feel a noticeable difference behind the wheel as the F-150’s Ti-VCT engine is limited to 282 horsepower and 253 lbs.-ft. of torque. And while the pair’s fuel economy is similar – 17/23 MPG city/hwy1 for the F-150, and 16/23 MPG city/hwy1 for the Ram – there is a huge difference in the size of their fuel tanks. The Ram 1500 has a 32-gallon tank, while the F-150 is stuck with a 23-gallon drum. The difference? The Ram 1500 can go over 200 miles further on a single tank of gas than the F-1502, which is great unless you enjoy stopping at gas stations all the time.

The comparison between the 2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2016 Ford F-150 near Tulsa, OK, continues with the safety features on each truck. While both the Ram and Ford trucks have standard features such as Anti-lock brakes, Stability Control, and Traction Control, the Ram 1500 goes above and beyond to keep you safe on the road. Emergency Service3, Stolen Vehicle Tracking/Assistance4, Roadside Assistance, and Vehicle Alarm Notification5 all come standard on the Ram 1500 to give you peace of mind that your truck is secure. The F-150 doesn’t quite meet the same standard as none of those features are even available in any of their trim models.   

If you’re going to be in your truck a lot, you’re going to want to be comfortable, and the 2016 Ram 1500’s interior is filled with amenities that will keep you content and entertained while you’re on the road. Power and heated/cooled seats both come standard on the Ram 1500, something that can’t be said about the 2016 Ford F-150. For entertainment, the Ram 1500 comes standard with a 1-year subscription to SiriusXM®6 Satellite Radio, so you have access to over 160 music and radio entertainment channels to choose from. The Ram 1500 also has Bluetooth®7 support to make hands-free calling for convenient and safe driving. The F-150 doesn’t have those standard features, meaning you’ll have to fork out some extra cash if you want the same features that come upfront in the Ram 1500.

As you can see, the 2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2016 F-150 near Tulsa, OK, comparison shows that the Ram is an effective truck in nearly every facet. It’s available for a test drive today at David Stanley Dodge, located at 7609 SE 29th St. in Midwest City, OK.
