RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Compare Trim Options

Every trim level of the RAM 1500 offers an unmatched performance and design. By offering 12 trims, drivers can get the properly equipped vehicle for their particular needs. From the luxuriously appointed Big Horn to the Sport’s HEMI horsepower, each model offers a capable and customized performance. The F-150 falls short, as it’s only available in 6 models.

With the RAM 1500, you’ll be able to tow and haul to your heart’s desire, without fear of breaking the bank. Its fuel-efficient design delivers the power that you crave, without sacrificing an ounce of fuel. The Tradesman and Big Horn both deliver 20 city miles per gallon and 28 on the highway, while the RAM 1500 Express EcoDiesel HFE gets best-in-class 29 highway mpg.

Built to last, the RAM 1500 is backed by an unsurpassed diesel powertrain limited warranty.

RAM 1500 vs. Chevy Silverado: Compare Trim Packages

Here at Performance Dodge, we know how important options are to our customers. After all, it’s impossible to satisfy all of our clients’ unique needs with a single vehicle model.

From the Sport’s 5.7L Hemi V8 to the luxurious design of the Laramie — the trim packages are created to provide a more customized driving experience. The Silverado falls short, offering only three trim packages to meet the wide range of customer needs.

These days, power is the name of the game. Especially, when it comes to pickup trucks. The all-new RAM 1500 delivers a road-gripping performance at every turn. It’s part of the reason why the 1500 has become such a fan-favorite here at Performance Dodge.

RAM 1500 vs. GMC Sierra: Compare Price

Not only does the RAM 1500 deliver with its durable design and build, it’ll also get you more bang for your buck, up-front. Save a ton right away with an MSRP that is almost $10K less than the Sierra. The RAM 1500 4WD Crew Cab kicks off at $37, 050, while the Sierra starts at $46, 970. With this price comparison, the proof is simply in the numbers.


RAM 1500 vs. GMC Sierra: Compare Warranty

So, how do we know that the RAM 1500’s performance and price are legit? How about with an unsurpassed diesel powertrain limited warranty? The RAM 1500’s warranty goes above and beyond, offering drivers 5-years/100,000-miles of security. It just goes to show how well-tested and durable RAM trucks truly are. The Sierra offers a quality warranty in its own right, but fails to meet the high RAM standards.
