Those are just some of the reasons why the Ram 1500 is one of the three best-selling pickup trucks in the entire world. But there are plenty of other reasons. Let's run through some of the most commonly-asked questions we hear at Slingerland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat about the popular Ram 1500 and discover some other strengths you can get with this exceptional pickup.



How Does the Ram 1500 Compare to the Ford F-150?

The 2021 Ram 1500 and the latest Ford F-150 both have an impressive array of very respectable available engines. The Ram 1500 offers V-6 and V-8 gasoline powertrains that team up well with a smooth, eight-speed automatic transmission. Both engines are supported by a 48-volt hybrid system, but the much-acclaimed 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is also available in a "pure" version without the electric component. 

The Ford F-150's menu offers a diesel, a four-cylinder, several V6s and a V8. Every engine is matched with a 10-speed automatic that works fine but can be rough to drive. The Ford F-150 uses a conventional leaf-spring rear suspension that's adjusted for toughness, not comfort. As one car industry analyst noted, "You will feel more bumps in the Ford.

How Comfortable Is the Ram 1500's Ride?

Riding comfort is an area where the Ram 1500 has a decided edge over rivals like the F-150. The Ram 1500 is built with a rear suspension that uses standard coil springs, unlike the conventional leaf-spring system used on competitors like the Ford F-150. Ram models equipped with optional air suspension have adjustable ride heights that can enhance fuel efficiency and fortify your off-road capability.

How Good Is the Ram 1500's Infotainment System?

It's safe to say the Ram 1500 has one of the best infotainment systems in its class. You have the option of a large 8.4-inch touchscreen or a truly massive available 12.0-inch touchscreen. The connectivity systems in the Ram have multiple power points, along with the convenience of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. That means you can get safe, hands-free access to the mobile phone apps you don't want to live without, like music and over-the-road navigation. To Ram's credit, even the biggest screen has easy, physical knobs and buttons.
