V8 Towing Capacity
As you’ve researched light-duty truck choices, it’s like you’ve heard about the 2019 RAM 1500 and the Ford F-150 – two of the most popular picks for Oklahoma City area drivers. Both offer a decidedly impressive value, and on first glance, likely appear similar in terms of performance, towing capacity, and interior features. But look closer and you’ll discover a number of unique differences. Which will check more boxes for you? Read this handy guide comparing the new RAM 1500 vs. Ford F-150 from Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge to find out!
With a choice of both V6 and V8 engines, the RAM and Ford deliver nearly-identical performance and fuel efficiency.

Performance specs between the 2019 RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 are pretty similar, but with better V8 towing power and a laundry list of extra features, RAM provides value that Ford can’t match. And while it’s easy enough to examine words on a screen, experiencing the difference in person is a whole new ball game.
