The 2018 Ram 1500 beats out the 2017 Ford F-150 in the key areas our Daytona Beach drivers care about, including

  • Performance
  • Technology
  • Interior Comfort
  • Driver Satisfaction

The best way for a truck driver to see what the 2018 Ram 1500 has to offer is to get behind the wheel and experience it firsthand. Until you can make the trip to Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for your test drive, we’ve got the next best thing: a head-to-head comparison with the F-150. Discover more below.

Ford Falls Behind on Performance

For all the talk that Ford’s newer turbocharged engines receive, the fact is that most of our drivers prefer the classic V6 and V8 style engines they can depend on.

  • The star of Ford’s show is a 3.5L turbocharged V6, and while its 375 hp is impressive, it falters against the Ram’s 5.7L HEMI V8.
  • Drivers who need to max out their truck’s power should look no further than a Ram, with up to 395 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque on the 5.7L V8.

Performance isn’t all about power, though, and many reviewers have also praised the Ram’s smooth and quiet ride despite its immense capabilities.

Technology Lifts the Ram 1500 Above the Ford F-150

Even if performance is your top truck priority, it’s important for a pickup to be more than just a powerful engine.

  • The Ram 1500 has an intuitive touchscreen, engineered for simplicity and ease of use while on the road. The Ram’s voice recognition system is one of the best on the market, and you’ll have extra buttons for familiar analog controls.
  • Ford touts their pinch and swipe touchscreen, but the tech that’s great for your smartphone can be cumbersome or distracting behind the wheel.

Get Comfortable in the Ram 1500 Cab

Whether working in Daytona or driving to Port Orange or Ormond for a job, drivers should prepare to spend time behind the wheel, and the 2018 Ram 1500 makes it enjoyable. The F-150 is nicer than previous versions of the same truck, but it’s one of the most outdated cabs in the truck world. Both trucks represent a step up from previous models, but the old Ram 1500s make the modern F-150 look old – and that’s before considering the tech features.
