Many of you have been asking us the difference between the 2015 Ford F-150 and the 2015 RAM 1500. Since our philosophy at St-Jean Dupont Ford is to inform you in all honesty and transparency, we have prepared this article for comparison of the two vehicles. We hope that it will help you to make an informed decision when purchasing your new 2015 truck.
First let’s look at what’s under the hood of these two trucks.
The 2015 Ford F-150 has a 2.7L, V6 EcoBoost engine capable of generating 325 horsepower! The 2015 RAM 1500’s engine has a 3.0 L, V6 EcoDiesel engine that is respectable, but nowhere near as powerful as the Ford’s. In fact, it produces 85 horsepower less than the 2015 F-150 for a total of 240 horsepower.
Therefore, if you want a powerful truck, capable of stirring up the dust when you travel to Brossard or Longueuil, it’s the F-150 that’s the obvious choice.
For your travel along Montreal’s South Shore, there is no doubt that the F-150 ends up the clear winner. With a fuel consumption of 10.9 L per 100km of combined city and highway driving, it is extremely economical at the pumps. In contrast, the 2015 RAM 1500 sucks back more than 11.2L/100km in the city and 8.0L/100km on the highway.
Since the F-150 far outstrips the RAM 1500 performance-wise, let’s look at what each of these trucks has to offer passengers. Thanks to its 8-inch, 360o split screen camera, the F-150 is the most innovative. It’s rustproof alloys and its steel frame guarantee a that it can face any challenge and will live a long life.
Without a doubt, the two trucks are excellent vehicles to get you to and from work sites along the South Shore of Montreal. But, if you want the most bang for your buck, best is to go back to Brossard or Longueuil behind the wheel of a 2015 F-150.
