See How the Ram 1500 Stacks Up Against the Competition

Here at David Corry Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we know Pennsylvania drivers love pickup trucks. Whether you need one for work, for towing the family camper, or you just like the drivability and usefulness of a truck in your daily life, a pickup truck is a great vehicle for all Corry area drivers.

With our extensive collection of the versatile and trustworthy Ram 1500, we also know a good truck when we see one. Our Ram 1500 pickups are remarkable for their smooth ride and luxurious styling. But, we know there are a lot of other trucks vying for your attention. Let us show you all the ways our Ram 1500 is the superior choice in a crowded sea of competing pickup trucks.

The Ram 1500 vs. the Ford F-150

The Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 are both available in multiple configurations and several engines. But, while both have a lot to offer, the Ram 1500 comes out ahead in some key areas.


2018 Ford F-150 Truck
  • Engine options: Both the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 come with a variety of engine options available to drivers. However, the Ford F-150 still doesn't have a diesel option available for drivers, although they say one is planned for the future. But, for drivers who like the power of a diesel now, the Ram is the top choice.
  • Standard power: If you plan on going with the entry level trim and base engine in your truck, you'll get more power from the Ram 1500 than the Ford F-150. The standard V6 engine for a Ram 1500 is a 3.6-liter with an output of 305 horsepower. The standard V6 for the F-150, on the other hand, is a 3.3-liter with only 290 horsepower.
  • Utility: If you need your new truck for work, the Ram 1500 is the pickup for you. The first two trim levels that are offered are perfect for everyday work, with rugged accents and enough power to perform your daily tasks with ease. Plus, it comes standard with a Class IV hitch receiver and a spray-in bed liner, which are ideal for heavy-duty jobs. Comparatively, the Ford F-150 will only allow you to get those special features on the base trim as an add-on package at extra expense.

The Ram 1500 vs. the Toyota Tundra

While the Toyota Tundra only comes with a standard V8 engine, it doesn't allow for a whole lot of choices for the driver. The Ram 1500 comes out ahead in this competition, because it allows drivers to customize their truck the way they want it.

  • Diesel power: The 2018 Toyota Tundra only comes with a V8 engine, and there are two for drivers to choose from. However, what there isn't available for drivers to choose is a diesel-powered option. The Ram 1500, however, does give you the choice of diesel, with an impressive 3.0-liter V6 with 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque available in its roster of engine options.
  • Cab styles: Unlike Ram, which allows drivers to customize any of the Ram 1500 trim levels with all available cab styles and bed lengths, Toyota limits many combinations for the Tundra. For example, the base Tundra, the SR, is only available with one cab style, the double cab. This offers much less legroom for backseat passengers and is very different from the base model Ram 1500, which can be had in any can style.
  • Space: Regardless of trim level or cab style, the Ram 1500 offers a more comfortable ride for you and your passengers, with more space, including more headroom, than all styles of the Toyota Tundra.

The Ram 1500 vs. the Nissan Titan

As with the Toyota comparison before it, the Nissan Titan doesn't allow the driver as many customization choices as the Ram 1500. The Nisan Titan may have a lot of the features drivers in Pennsylvania are looking for, but, it's lacking some important Ram 1500 characteristics.

  • Engine options: The Nissan Titan doesn't even come close to offering the same number of engine options as the Ram 1500. In fact, while the Ram gives you a choice between three engines of varying power, the Nissan truck traditionally has always only come with one engine. It's a V8, but, it doesn't allow for drivers to have much say in how their truck is powered, and it doesn't include a diesel option in the possibilities.
  • Cab options: As with the Toyota Tundra comparison before, the Nissan Titan doesn't allow drivers to have every type of cab in every trim level. In fact, the lower trim levels of the Titan are the only ones that can be ordered with a single, regular cab. If you choose to go with an upper-level Titan, the larger crew cab style is your only option.
  • Towing capacity: The Nissan Titan has a maximum towing capacity of 9,390 pounds. This is less than the Ram 1500, which can easily manage up to 10,330 pounds.

The Ram 1500 vs. the Chevy Silverado

With a ride that is more bumpy and noisy, and somewhat less comfortable than the Ram 1500, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is another competitor with a thing or two to learn from the Ram. With no diesel option, and less power, the Chevy Silverado 1500 leaves something to be desired in this head-to-head competition as well.

  • Power: The Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500 both have standard V6 engines for their base models, as well as a more powerful V8 for upper trims. However, neither engine in the Silverado lineup is as powerful as the Ram engines. The standard 3.6-liter V6 for the Ram 1500 offers 305 horsepower, and the optional 5.7-liter V8 puts out 395 horsepower. Comparatively, the Chevy model's standard 4.3-liter V6 puts out only 285 horsepower, and its 5.3-liter V8 has a rating of 355 horsepower.
  • Diesel power: As with the other models in this comparison, the Chevy doesn't give light-duty truck shoppers a diesel-powered option. While the Ram 1500 has a great diesel engine that drivers can opt for on any trim level, Chevy Silverado 1500 drivers don't get that choice.
  • Ride quality: With its signature five-link spring-coil rear suspension, the Ram 1500 offers a smooth and even ride every time, regardless of whether your truck is empty or weighted down with gear. The Chevy Silverado 1500, on the other hand, doesn't have a standard coil suspension, meaning its ride quality is inferior to the Ram 1500. Plus, the Chevy truck's boxy shape makes for a noisy ride inside the truck, while the Ram 1500 is engineered for quiet and comfort.
