See Why The 2020 Ford F-150 Reigns Supreme

The full-size pickup segment is full of powerful, capable, and often times luxurious machines. Whether you're looking for a high-end pickup fitted with all the bells and whistles, a no-nonsense, haul-it-all work truck, or a menacing-looking, off-road warrior, you'll find exactly what you're looking for with an American-made full-size truck.

The F-Series, Silverado and Ram are the best-selling vehicles of any kind in the United States and are now playing a more prominent role as even more consumers make the switch shift from passenger cars.

In total, the F-Series has been America's best-selling truck for 43 consecutive years and its best-selling vehicle overall for the past 38 years. That's no easy feat in such a competitive market.

If you're shopping for a pickup and want the most for your money, you'll be looking at the top 2 trucks on the market. So, let's take a look at how the 2020 Ford F-150 compares to the 2020 Ram 1500.

2020 Ram 1500

290 - 450 HP


260 - 395 HP

265 - 510 lb-ft


269 - 480 lb-ft

13,200 LBS

Maximum Towing

12,750 LBS


The base Ford F-150 has an entry MSRP of $28,495, while the 2020 Ram 1500 comes with a starting MSRP of $31,895. This would put the Ford at about $3,000 less if you were to go with the base model.


The Ford truck's chiseled fenders and blunt approach telegraph what it's best at: hard work. The Ram's a little softer, and a bit showier with its more suit-and-tie like feel.


First off, if you're looking for a two-door regular cab truck, Ford is the only one still making them. Ram got rid of the pure workhorse regular cab in favor of four-door only models. Both trucks showcase nicely appointed interiors with all the expected tech features to make the ride as comfortable and connected as possible. As for interior space, the rear seats are fairly comparable, but Ram had to compromise the legroom in the front row in order to make the second row seem roomier. As a result, the driver loses three inches of critical legroom in the Ram.
