The Ram 1500's are pretty cool, and capability wise they fit the bill. When I compare it to other trucks, the F150 comes out on top.
The biggest advantage the F150 has is its all-aluminum body. It's 700 pounds lighter than the previous generations. Besides superior MPG, the horsepower and torque to weight ratio are much better on the F150. The F150 V6 Ecoboost specifically has a much higher torque to weight ratio than the Ram 1500 with the 5.7L.
The F150 crew cab has 43 inches of leg room in the back, versus 35 in the Ram 1500. My brother has the Superduty (F250+) crew cab, and it's nearly identical in size. Having ridden in the back on numerous road trips, I can attest that the extra 8 inches of rear legroom is the difference between enjoying and hating a road trip. For me, the extra legroom in my future vehicle is very important because I often travel with more than 2 adults. A photo of Marie sitting beside me in the back of the Superduty. So much space. 👇
