Perhaps you are thinking of the 2019 Ford F-150, a popular truck in the pickup category. One notable difference is that the new RAM 1500 is available with the 3.6L VVT Pentastar V6 and which includes ETorque technology - a mild hybrid system. Working with a 48-volt battery pack, this feature supports a quick and seamless start/stop function, short duration torque and brake energy regeneration. There isn't a current hybrid option for the 2019 F-150, as Ford will be launching its hybrid version in 2020 only.
When comparing a 2019 Ford F-150 XLT 4x2 regular cab with an eight-foot box to a 2019 RAM 1500 Classic ST 4x2 Single Cab with an eight-foot box there are a few more differences. Engine power is always important and RAM can come with the V8 5.7 litre Hemi engine which produces 395 horsepower, while the 2019 F-150 comes with a V6 3.3 litre engine with only 290 horsepower - which in torque translates to 265 lb•ft for the Ford and a powerful 410 lb•ft for the RAM 150. In the ever-important towing category, the Ford F-150 has a maximum capacity of 2,268 kg (5,000 kg) and the RAM tops out at 3,193 kg (7,039 lb).
Of course if you are choosing between Ford and RAM trucks, you may want to head into your local RAM dealership to check them out in person. While you are there, the team at South Oakville Chrysler would be happy to share with you the current RAM promotions and RAM financing.
