RAM 1500 Engine Specs

Ram 1500 vs F-150: Extreme Power

One of the most important aspects of a truck is its performance capabilities. Drivers looking to take on fierce tasks and towing jobs need a truck that can pull it off with ease. If you’re looking to take your truck off road, you’ll need even more capability. Fortunately, that power is readily available to you for your next job.

Both trucks have a variety of engine types to live up to your expectations, as any pickup should. The Ford F-150, when properly equipped, features a 3.5L V6 engine capable of 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. This power is certainly impressive.

However, the Ram 1500 has an available 6.2L V8 engine for those in need of intense power. This engine makes the Ram 1500 a dominating presence by putting out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, when properly equipped, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds of trailer weight. This pickup is imposing on the road while also conquering rough terrain thanks to its powerful engineering.

The Ram 1500 features an available exclusive suspension system called Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension. When you accelerate to highway speeds, this suspension system will lower your Ram truck to reduce drag, making it more aerodynamic.

The Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension can also improve entering parking garages, entering the cabin, loading the truck bed, and hitching a trailer. This is a class-exclusive feature, meaning you’ll only find this dynamic suspension system in the Ram 1500 and making it a great choice for drivers in need of versatility.


Ram 1500 with RamBox® Cargo Management

Work Smarter, Not Harder

The Ram 1500 and F-150 cabins are stunning and comfortable for everyone to enjoy. They both offer work-fleet models, but the luxury only gets better as you move up the trim levels. This includes available leather seats in either model and comparable amounts of headroom and legroom for everyone in each truck.

On the outside, though, the 2021 Ram 1500 has some exclusive features that make working out of the bed of your truck easier. The available and class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System features two storage bins on either side of the bed, which are weatherproof and lockable. This extra storage space for tools and other gear keeps you ready for work with easy access.

You can also get the available multifunction tailgate with the Ram 1500. Featuring 60/40 split swing-away doors and an available center bed step, loading and unloading cargo has never been easier. This unique tailgate feature allows you to access the truck bed even when you’re trailering. Additionally, the multifunction tailgate can open downward in the traditional way should the occasion call for it.

Only the Ram 1500 has available power running boards on the exterior. The truck senses when a door opens, automatically deploying the side running boards to make stepping up and into the cabin easy. Drivers looking for easy access to their truck bed and driver’s seat will find the Ram 1500 filled with available options to assist.


Ram 1500 with Apple CarPlay® Technology

While both trucks have advanced and intuitive systems, the Ram’s Uconnect® system is sophisticated and easy to use, thanks to its pinch-and-zoom technology along with physical controls. It also offers a crisp 12-inch touchscreen. This will give you a great look at your route guidance when using the available Navigation system.

Many advanced safety features are available for the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150, too. This includes the available Ram Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection and Ford Blind Spot Information System that can scan your blind spot and detect any oncoming cars at the side of your truck or trailer.
