2017 Ford F-150 vs. 2017 Ram 1500: Compare Trucks

In this golden age of pickup trucks, from fuel economy to crash safety, the workhorses of the automotive world have never done a better job of doubling as passenger cars. Likewise, with tow and payload ratings at all-time highs, today's light-duty, full-size trucks are the brute-strength equivalents of yesterday's heavy-duty pickups.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford F-150 is a solid nudge forward with a new transmission and top-trim engine this year, also nudging forward: its overall price. The 2017 Ram 1500 can hold its own among the Detroit Three thanks to a good powertrain lineup and smart lineup additions.
