We have plenty of pickup trucks that will get all of your heavy-duty lifting done and will still give you the satisfaction of a new truck, even if you're not towing or hauling anything. Visit our dealership in Lebanon to test drive the Ford F-150. For more perspective on the benefits of the Ford F-150, let's compare it to the Ram 1500.


The Ford F-150 is commonly used for commercial endeavors due to its seating size and cab space. It has a 3.3-liter V6 engine with different engine options, including full hybrid V6 engines, turbodiesel V6 engines, and 5.0-liter V8 engines. If drives upgrade their Ford F-150 engine to the 5.0-liter V8 engine, they will receive at least 400 horsepower and pound-feet of torque whenever they step further on the gas. The Ram 1500 might have a V6 engine as well, but it doesn't provide multiple engines to get stronger driving performance than what it already has.


When it comes to hauling and towing, the Ford F-150 also dominates the Ram 1500 with its engine flexibility. When using the Ram 1500, drivers can tow up to 7,740 pounds and carry a payload up to 2,320 pounds. Depending on the engine size, drivers can tow up to 9,100 pounds and haul a payload up to 2,345 pounds. These weights are also contingent on the cab size, which provides more volume to carry and tow heavy things while driving through Claremont, NH.


Drivers can select the Ford F-150 with an original regular cab that seats a max of three passengers. These truck versions are classic commercial-type pickup trucks. However, in bigger cabs, the Ford-150 sits up to six passengers comfortably. What's even more amazing is how the Ford F-150 interior space matches up with the Ram 1500. Even if drivers choose the three-passenger trim, the Ford F-150 has the same amount of shoulder, leg, and hip space as front passengers of the Ram 1500, if not bigger. The Ram 1500 provides 66 inches of shoulder room in the front and 65.7 inches in the back. It also provides 40.9 inches of legroom in the front, 35.6 inches of legroom in the back, and 63.4 inches of hip room in the front and back.

Passengers within the three-passenger Ford F-150 will get 66.7 inches of shoulder room, 43.9 inches of legroom. After choosing a Ford F-150 trim with a back seat, passengers in that row will have more shoulder room than the Ram 1500, receiving 66.1 inches. The Ford-150 also has more cargo box options, receiving up to 77.4 cubic feet of cargo box volume compared to the standard 61.5 cubic feet that the Ram 1500 has.


The technology within the Ford F-150 is mostly for performance upgrades for your drive to places like Randolph, VT. Get performance features such as Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control, and Selectable Driving modes to adjust the drivability on different terrain. More safety technology such as Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Coverage, and Curve Control is also amongst the technology available for drivers who need the extra hauling and towing assistance. The Ram 1500 doesn't have these features.
