2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 Ram 1500
Americans love pickup trucks. The pickup truck segment is by far one of the most popular segments in the automotive industry, and the Ford F-150 absolutely dominates that segment every year. In fact, the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling pickup truck in America for nearly four decades now, which is completely unprecedented. The main reason why the Ford F-150 has been so successful for so long is because Ford has never become complacent with it. They continue to innovate and make it more advanced, powerful and tough each and every year. Ford recently released a completely redesigned version of the F-150 for the 2015 model year. Therefore, most people expected the 2016 model to be nothing more than a carry over. However, that was simply not the case. The new 2016 Ford F-150 has some exciting new technology upgrades that took an already great truck and made it even better for the new model year.
There is certainly no shortage of competition in the full size pickup truck segment. However, we truly believe that the F-150 is still miles ahead of any other truck on the market. The best way to prove that is to match up the F-150 against the best competition in the segment to show the ways that it is superior. Therefore, we have decided to conduct a 2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 Ram 1500 comparison review.
2016 Ford F-150: Technologically Advanced and Tough
There is nothing more important to truck owners than performance. They want to make sure that a truck is tough enough to haul or tow anything they can throw at it before deciding to buy it. Luckily, overall performance is one of the areas where the new 2016 Ford F-150 really shines in comparison to the 2016 Ram 1500. The Ford F-150 is the only truck in its class to come with a fully-aluminum military grade body. When you combine this lightweight body with the advanced and powerful engine options, it should be no secret that the F-150 has a significantly higher payload and tow rating than the 2016 Ram 1500 pickup truck.
Another way that the new 2016 Ford F-150 is superior to the 2016 Ram 1500 is with its advanced and innovative technology. Ford has equipped the F-150 with exciting new technology features such as SYNC 3 infotainment and Pro Trailer Backup Assist. The new 2016 Ram 1500 does not even come close to matching the great technology offered on the F-150.
