2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2015 Ford F-150
Businesses, families and drivers across the world rely on trucks to help them with their toughest projects. With that said, no all drivers are looking for a heavy-duty pickup truck. That’s where the full-size pick comes in. It has the great towing capacity and power to handle anything you throw its way, without the extreme cost of a heavy-duty pickup. While it doesn’t have as much towing capacity of a heavy-duty pickup, not all drivers need that and that’s exactly why the full-size pickup is ideal. Ahead of the competition in the full-size pickup segment is the 2016 Ram 1500. Not only has it been named the Fleet Truck of the Year by Automotive Fleet magazine, but it’s also one of the most popular trucks in America. However, this award-winner is not without competition. The 2015 Ford F-150 is one of many. Here’s a closer look at how the 2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2015 Ford F-150 compare.
