That starts with helping you decide which model among favorites like the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Ram 1500 is best for you. Below, you can learn more about the capabilities and features of the Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500 so you can ultimately see which one is best for your adventures and big jobs around Grand Forks, Hillsboro, and Grafton.

Performance Capabilities of the F-150 vs Ram 1500

The first thing you probably want to know is which truck can tow more. While both are capable of towing thousands of pounds, it's the 2021 Ford F-150 that can carry some extra weight when pulling along your trailer, camper, or any other equipment.

Along with what it can tow, the Ford F-150 is also able to carry a heavier payload than the 2021 Ram 1500. This means you'll be able to haul heavy tools, supplies, and gear in the bed of the F-150.

The capabilities don't end there with this Ford truck, either. Among its various configurations, you will find an available hybrid V6 that not only produces a great deal of power but can use the combination of gas and electric energy to help save fuel.

2021 F-150 vs Ram 1500: Safety Technology

There are also various safety technologies in both pickups that will give you more confidence when sitting behind the wheel of either of these powerful trucks. They each have available features that can scan your blind spot of both your truck and trailer and let you know when an oncoming car is approaching.

That way, you can know when it is safe to change lanes even if you are towing. They each also have available systems that can help make backing up your trailer a much simpler task. However, there are some available safety features you can only get with the 2021 F-150, including:

  • Intersection Assist
  • Evasive Steering Assist
  • Active Park 2.0

With available Active Park 2.0, the Ford F-150 will be able to park itself into open spots along the street or in a parking lot. The Ram 1500 does have an available parking assist system, but it still requires you to control the gear position, brake, and accelerator while using it.

Enjoy an Extremely Comfortable Ride in Your New Truck

All the fun isn't had outside of these trucks either. They both offer cabins with luxurious amenities, high-tech features, and spacious seating for you and passengers. There is however a little extra comfort waiting for you behind the wheel of the 2021 F-150 with its available Multicontour leather seats with Active Motion®.

These seats have various massage settings, which provide even more comfort and support to your lower back. Plus, with the available Max Recline Seats, you can lounge back during your lunch break or take a quick rest during your next road trip with the Ford F-150!
