Texas drivers know their trucks, so we don't make that claim lightly. However, Nederland drivers know that they can count on the F-150 to show up no every day, ready for either work or play. Of course, there are many pickups out there from which to choose. That's why we decided to take a look at how the Ford F-150 measures up to one of its top competitors, the Ram 1500.

The F-150 starts at a lower MSRP than does the Ram 1500, which leaves more money available for you to devote to other things. Or, if you'd rather, you can use the difference to add features to your F-150 and make it even more outstanding. Either way, you're getting better value for your money.

That's all well and good, but we know that truck drivers really want to know about performance. There are six engines available for the F-150, with the Ram 1500 giving owners a more limited lineup of powerplants. The top engine for the F-150 generates more horsepower and pound-feet of torque pound-feet than does the Ram's strongest engine, so it's clearly the go-to option when the going gets tough. That performance difference was also evident when we compared each truck's maximum tow ratings, with the Ford registering the superior capability numbers.

When you're ready to drop by our showroom and explore the F-150 in person, or any of the other new Ford models we offer, just contact us and speak with a team member. We're ready to help you in any way we can, from answering questions to helping you arrange for the loan or Ford lease that works with your budget.
