Used Ford F-150 vs. Pre-Owned Ram 1500 in Sanford, FL

The Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500 are two of the most popular full-sized trucks in the U.S. The F-150 is known for its class-leading capability, while the Ram 1500 has earned a stellar reputation for its refined interior. Either model is a sound choice for a used truck, and we carry both pickups at Nations Trucks. Read the following comparison of Ford vs. Ram to see which truck prevails in Sanford, Fl.

Performance and Towing Capacity

The Ford F-150 has been at or near the top of the light-duty truck class for towing in recent years. Orlando drivers who often pull cars or ATVs behind their truck will appreciate that most used F-150 models can tow more than 13,000 pounds when properly equipped. The used Ram 1500 can only tow around 12,700 pounds with its most favorable configuration. The Ram 1500's available turbodiesel engine enables it to get up to 32 mpg on the highway. The F-150 only manages 29 mpg with its turbodiesel motor.

Interior Design

The used Ram 1500 has one of the finest interiors in its class, with attractive styling that includes metallic accents and soft-touch surfaces throughout. People in Daytona Beach will like the leather upholstery and genuine wood trim on higher Ram 1500 models. The Ford F-150 has a tastefully styled cab, but there are too many rigid plastic trim pieces. Tampa drivers will appreciate that the Ford F-150 is available in Regular, SuperCab, and SuperCrew body styles with seating for three to six people. The Ram 1500 only comes in Quad Cab and Crew Cab body styles.
