2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Ford F-150 near Baker City, OR

Have you been scouring the market in search of that perfect pickup? You might have focused in on the 2018 Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 and are now looking for more information. Well, you have come to the right review. For this model year, the Ram has brought in the option of an all-new Limited Tungsten Edition and a midtier Harvest edition. On top of this, the Ram 1500 has also made a rearview camera standard for all levels and added a few brand new safety features as well. On the other hand, the Ford F-150 has exchanged its old engines for a new set and has updated the look of its front and rear style.

2018 Ram 1500 Power & Handling

In 2018 the Ram 1500 has the choice of three engines. The first of the three engines offer a production of 305 horsepower. All three of these engines are available in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with either an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed automatic. The EPA estimates that these engines max out at 20/27 miles per gallon in fuel economy.

2018 Ford F-150 Power & Handling

The Ford has revamped its engine lineup for 2018 and now offers 6 choices. The first option offers 290 horsepower total for production. The only available transmission is a six-speed automatic. Once you get to the upper engines you can choose a ten-speed automatic. A few of the trims have the option to choose between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Its top fuel economy also stretches to an estimated 20/26 miles per gallon.

2018 Ram 1500 Features & Design

Eleven trim options are available to the Ram 1500. Each trim is created with a specific purpose, rather than simply adding a little bit more to each trim, these levels are built for a type of job or function. This makes it easier to choose a model that fits what you need rather than needing to add packages left and right. Although if the trim that best suits what you need is missing a little something that you personally want or need, packages are still available.

2018 Ford F-150 Features & Design

The F-150 is available with six trim options. For this Ford, you start with the basic trim and then each trim follows with a touch more in features to add luxury or capability. This means that you would need to choose the level of luxury and power that you want and then put out more cash for packages that will add on the features needed for this truck to the job you need it for.


In the end, the Ram comes out on top. Even though they are evenly matched in options with the Ram having more trim levels and the Ford having more engine options, the Ram simply has a better selection overall. It doesn't need as many engines to be competitive and its trim selection is a lot easier to focus on what you need.
