F-150 vs. Ram 1500: Performance Specs
The 2022 Ford F-150 offers six commanding engines in its powertrain lineup, including:
- 3.3L Ti-VCT V6
- 2.7L EcoBoost® V6
- 3.5L EcoBoost® V6
- 3.5L PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6
- 5.0L Ti-VCT V8
- 3.5L EcoBoost® High-Output V6
These engines offer uniquely impressive capabilities. For example, if you opt for the PowerBoost™ engine, you’ll enjoy an EPA-estimated 25 city/26 highway MPG. Even if power is where your priorities lie, the 3.5L PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 engine offers a whopping 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 Ram 1500, on the other hand, offers only five engines. While this seems like plenty of options if you’re looking to tailor your truck to your specific needs, the flexibility of six engines in the F-150 outdoes the Ram 1500’s five. The Ford F-150’s engines outperform four out of five of the Ram 1500’s engine options when it comes to power.
F-150 vs. Ram 1500: Towing & Hauling
All the power that the 2022 Ford F-150’s commanding engines have to offer makes it possible for this model to move quite a bit of weight. When properly equipped, the F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds of trailer weight. Additionally, this model offers a maximum payload capacity of 3,325 pounds when properly equipped.
To make towing and hauling in the impressively powerful F-150 even easier, this model offers an available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. This helpful system takes the hard work out of backing up when you have a trailer hitched. In fact, it’s as simple as turning the Pro Trailer knob!
Unfortunately, the 2022 Ram 1500 can’t tow or haul as much as the F-150—this model can tow only up to 12,750 pounds and handle 2,300 pounds of payload weight when properly equipped.
F-150 vs. Ram 1500: Interior Features
Inside the 2022 Ford F-150, you’ll find plenty of space for you and your passengers. The F-150 offers seating for up to six passengers, with 43.9 spacious inches of front legroom as well as 40.8 inches of front headroom.
On top of that, you’ll have plenty of handy technology features to take advantage of in this model, including the standard SYNC® 4 infotainment system and an available 360-Degree Camera system.
The interior of the 2022 Ram 1500, on the other hand, won’t offer you as much space. This model only provides 40.9 inches of front legroom because it gives all the room to the rear passengers. While this is ideal for them, front passengers may be a little cramped if they’re on the taller side.
