2015 Ram 1500 vs. 2015 Ford F-150
As the latest member of Canada’s longest-running line of pickups and with the highest level of brand loyalty in its class, it should come as no surprise to Estevan and Indian Head drivers that the 2015 Ram 1500 is far superior to a competitor like the 2015 Ford F-150.
If the 2015 Ford F-150’s aluminum-alloy body represents innovation in the wrong direction, then the 2015 Ram 1500’s class-exclusive 3.0 EcoDiesel engine represents the opposite.
- Ram Peak Efficiency: The 3.0L EcoDiesel turns the new 1500 into Canada’s most fuel-efficient pickup, with mileage ratings of 11.6 L/100 km in the city and 8.4 L/100 km on the highway in 4×2 models.
- Ford Peak Efficiency: Ford’s lackluster 2.7L EcoBoost V6 allows drivers to go 12.2 L/100 km in the city and 9.2 L/100 km on the highway, for significantly worse fuel economy than the new 1500.
The 2015 Ram 1500 doesn’t just outclass the 2015 Ford F-150 in terms of efficiency — it also surpasses it in terms of maximum power, with a lineup of engines that can meet the requirements of any driver around Estevan or Indian Head.
- Ram Peak Power: The new Ram 1500’s available 5.7L HEMI V8 powerhouse can put you in control of 395 hp.
- Ford Peak Power: The optional 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 just can’t compete, with an output equal to just 385 hp.
The 2015 Ford F-150 has managed to excite some level of anticipation by becoming the first vehicle in its class to utilize an aluminum-alloy body. Ford boasts that the material is military-grade, and it has certainly managed to shave some pounds from the lumbering 2014 F-150.
However, Estevan and Indian Head drivers might not be aware that aluminum is harder to work than steel. It takes more time and money to fix — and that’s if you manage to find a repair shop that can do the job, which is never something you can rely on. Because the 2015 Ram 1500 is a working vehicle that focuses on reliability, Ram stuck with a durable steel chassis.
