2021 Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150

Anyone who is in the market for a new full-size pickup truck is well aware of the fact that there are a lot of options out there for you to choose from. At Dave Smith, we are doing our best to narrow down all of those different trucks out there to only the best of the best. That's why we're focusing on the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 Ford F-150. The Ram 1500 is always keen to make a statement, which is why you shouldn't be surprised by the addition of the TRX variant that can pump out 702 horsepower. You'll also enjoy a roomy cabin, impressive fuel economy, and a unique suspension. On the other side of things, with the Ford F-150, you'll find a redesigned body, all-new interior, new infotainment, and multiple trim level options. Keep reading down below to find out which truck we recommend!

2021 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

One of the biggest reasons, if not the reason, why people look at pickup trucks is because of their power and capability. We're happy to announce that the Ram 1500 has just about all of the power you could ever desire. You'll be able to choose from a list of four different powertrains, all of them ensuring that your truck is never without the kind of capability necessary to get the job done. These engines include a 3.6-liter V6, a 5.7-liter V8, a diesel-powered turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, and a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The final engine that we mentioned can get up to 650 pound-feet of torque and 702 horsepower. Yeah, now that's power.

2021 Ford F-150 Power & Handling

Ford tries its best to give the F-150 a shot at keeping up with the Ram 1500 and everything it has to offer. The one thing we want to note is the lack of competition for the Ram 1500's TRX variant and engine. The Ford F-150's engine, however, includes a 3.3-liter V6, a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6, a 5.0-liter V8, a turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6, and a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. While this isn't a bad engine lineup, it's one that does not even compare to what the Ram 1500 is giving you.

2021 Ram 1500 Features & Design

Beyond just focusing on the power, trucks have evolved to be comfortable, stylish, and with all of the latest technology, you could need. Some of the standard features here include a six-speaker stereo system, a five-inch touchscreen, 18-inch steel wheels, trailer sway damping, air conditioning, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. A few available features include LED exterior lighting, an electronic locking rear axle, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, heated and ventilated front seats, forward collision mitigation, a four-corner air suspension, blind-spot monitoring, and premium-leather bucket seats.

2021 Ford F-150 Features & Design

After you're done figuring out the engine lineup, it's time to see what you can get for standard and available features. The Ford F-150 gets 17-inch steel wheels, an 8-inch infotainment screen, manual air conditioning, wiper-activated automatic headlights, automatic emergency braking, and a 40/20/40-cloth front seat. Some of the available features include dual-zone climate control, leather seating, fog lights, heated mirrors, remote tailgate release, rain-sensing wipers, chrome grille, and adaptive cruise control.


While the Ford F-150 is not a bad truck, it's just one that can't keep up with everything that the 2021 Ram 1500 is giving you. Between the new TRX variant, and all of the features, this is a truck that you'll love for years to come.
