A truck is only as good as the work it can do, and in this regard, we’ll admit it: both the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 are worthy rivals.

With its multi-link coil spring rear suspension, the 1500 absorbs road impact to smooth out your ride, while also decreasing the wear-and-tear on your truck.

If you want value in your truck, the 2019 RAM 1500 comes with more standard tech features than its Ford counterpart. The more expensive Ford F-150 does offer many of the same features, but as optional add-ons which only further drive up the price. Technological conveniences in the RAM include a larger, versatile touchscreen, the UConnect infotainment system, and a customize customizable digital gauge system to suit your needs.
Your truck isn’t just a tool, it’s also the ultimate toy. You want it to be comfortable both after work, or headed out of town for the weekend.
