Power and Fuel Efficiency in the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150

Options for either a V6 or V8 engine are available with both the new Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. Their transmissions both perform at a high level, but Washington drivers tend to gravitate toward the Ram 1500 specs:

  • F-150 Engines: There are six engine options available in the Ford F-150, maxing out at 450 hp with a 3.5L twin turbo or 395-hp 5.0L V8.
  • Ram 1500 Engines: Better fuel economy is a Ram 1500 hallmark, with a mild hybrid V8 engine system available for East Peoria roads, along with a max 395-hp 5.7L V8
  • Transmissions: The Ram 1500 is available with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the F-150 can be had with a 6-speed automatic or a 10-speed automatic.
  • Fuel Economy Ratings: The Ram 1500 and F-150 both offer 20 mpg city, while the Ram offers 25 mpg and the F-150 offers 26 mpg highway.

The 2019 Ram 1500 towing capacitymaxes out at 12,750 pounds, featuring Best-in-Class V8 Towing, courtesy of a 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque. That goes beyond the F-150’s capabilities with a standard V8, although both produce 395 hp. Specifically, the F-150 tows up to 11,600 pounds.
