2018 Ford F-150 Lineup vs 2019 Ram 1500 Lineup
Ford loves to boast about how the models that make up its F-Series lineup are America’s favorite trucks. But this isn’t just another case of an automotive company making hyperbolic claims it can’t back up. Instead, Ford says this about the F-Series – and the F-150 in particular – because there isn’t another truck out there that can stand toe-to-toe with Ford’s truck offerings.
That’s even true as other brands get a jump start on the 2019 model year. Take Ram, for instance, and its all-new 2019 Ram 1500 lineup. Now, you’d think a 2019 model year truck would easily best a 2018 model year truck, but that’s simply not the case when looking at the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup versus the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup. As you’ll see in this comparison, not even an extra model year’s worth of work can help a Ram truck escape the shadow of the Ford F-150.
