2020 Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500: Compare Trucks

The Ford F-150 has sold more copies than the average Kinko’s; the Ram 1500 keeps gaining on it and rivals from Chevy and GMC with methodical doses of technology and talent. Both full-size pickup trucks are at the top of their towing and hauling and passenger-carrying game—but which one should you buy?

The latest 2020 Ram 1500 does it all, with mildly improved gas engines, a handsomely appointed cabin, a touchscreen-interface nirvana, and a swell new turbodiesel edition. The 2020 F-150 can almost say “same”—and it’s sold in thousands more combinations and configurations.
