These full-size trucks each have their loyal fans, but we believe that the benefits of buying or leasing a new Ford F-150 near Vincennes, IN are too good to pass up, which we show below!

Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500

  • The Ford F-150 offers a more diverse engine selection than the Ram 1500, including the new Ford F-150 Hybrid near Evansville, IN, which provides 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque. The Ram 1500 HEMI V8 engine tops out at 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
  • That power isn't just for bragging rights, either, as the new Ford F-150 has a max towing capacity of 14,000 pounds and a max payload capacity of 3,325 pounds. If you have tough jobs ahead, the Ram 1500's max towing of 12,750 pounds and max payload of 2,300 pounds may not cut it.
  • The brawn of the Ford F-150 is sure to impress, but the brains do just as much to set this new truck apart. The Ford F-150 has helpful features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist for when you're parking a trailer, and the Ford F-150 Hybrid has Pro Power Onboard, which lets you use the charge from the battery to power your tools. The Ram 1500 does not offer such help with your tasks.

Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

  • The Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 have gone head-to-head for a long time now, but the new Ford F-150 continues to pull ahead. It has greater max towing capability, 14,000 pounds, and max payload, 3,325 pounds, than the new Chevy truck, a 13,300 pounds of towing and 2,280 pounds of payload.
  • The largest cab options for both of these trucks have a lot of space to enjoy, but there is more in the Ford F-150 SuperCrew, including in areas like rear-row legroom. The Ford F-150 offers items like max recline front seats and a lockable storage bin under the rear seats, neither of which you'll find in any Chevy Silverado 1500 for sale.
  • The Ford F-150 goes above and beyond with technologies to make your workday a breeze. There's an all-new SYNC infotainment system in it, and you can control that through a 12-inch touchscreen, which is larger than that of the Silverado 1500. Drivers will also find a blind-spot monitoring system with trailer detection in the Ford F-150 but not the Chevy Silverado 1500.
