When you hear the name Ford F-150 you immediately think of strength, toughness, and endurance. All of these qualities exude from this amazing truck, but how does it compare to such competitors as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the RAM 1500? Take a look at our comparison below to find out.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Versus The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Price

    Everywhere you turn the Ford F-150 is saving you money. With a base starting MSRP of $27,110 the Ford F-150 is slightly less expensive than the $27,785 base starting MSRP of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. They both have warranties that contain a five-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty and roadside assistance, but the F-150 outshines the Silverado 1500 with its five-year/60,000 mile (versus the Chevrolet's three-year/36,000 mile) corrosion warranty.

  • Power

    If you are buying a truck, you are definitely looking for power. The Ford F-150 has multiple engines available, ranging from a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 to the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8. This allows the F-150 to have an amazing maximum towing power of 12,200-pounds. The Silverado 1500 can have one of three engines with the most powerful being a 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8, which grants you a maximum towing power of 11,700-pounds.

  • Technology

    These days technology is constantly changing and becoming more and more innovative. Both the Ford and Chevrolet models have such features as Hill Start Assist, a Rear Vision Camera, and other helpful safety systems, but the Ford F-150 has invented one of the most helpful tools when it comes time to tow those bigger items: the Pro Trailer Backup Assist. Use this knob and turn your trailer where you want it to go without having to maneuver your truck back and forth. This saves you both time and frustration and allows you to back up safely.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Versus The 2017 RAM 1500

  • Price

    Although the base starting MSRP of the RAM 1500 is about $600 less than the Ford F-150 base starting MSRP you will find yourself saving more money at the gas station to make up for it. The F-150 receives a better city miles-per-gallon rating than the RAM 1500, which means less stops and more money in your pocket.

  • Power

    When you choose either one of these trucks you won't be disappointed by their power and capabilities. You do receive more choices with the Ford F-150, though. The RAM 1500 has three different engines available, the 3.6-liter PENTASTAR V6, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, and the 5.7-liter HEMI V8. The Ford F-150 has four different engines for you to select from, the standard 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8. Each one of these engines are outstanding and, with the Ford EcoBoost engines, you are guaranteed great gas mileage for your truck.

  • Technology

    Both the Ford F-150 and the RAM 1500 contain innovative safety and infotainment features that help you through every step of your journey. The F-150 has its SYNC 3 program available. This touchscreen device allows you to use voice-activated technology to connect with your phone, music, and apps. You also receive 911 Assist, a trial to SiriusXM radio, and the ability to connect to your smartphone via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The RAM 1500 also has a voice-activated touchscreen that uses the Uconnect system. Unfortunately this system isn't capable of connecting to your iPhone devices.
