2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ram 1500 

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ram 1500

Every model year the truck wars reach new heights, but this year things are heating up to an extreme. That’s because the Ford F-150, America’s best-selling truck for 38 years and counting, has been redesigned and is back all-new with endless segment firsts. See why Ford is calling the next-gen 2021 Ford F-150 a pioneer in purposeful technology when we compare it with the 2020 Ram 1500 truck in this model comparison.

Ford is still saying TBA on the trailering figures, but we do know it’s on target to deliver the highest maximum towing capacity of any full-size light-duty pickup. Yes, even higher than the 12,750-lb. towing capacity on the 2020 Ram 1500, or the 13,400-lb. capacity of the 2020 Chevy Silverado. The highest. Period.

What’s New in the Next-Gen 2021 Ford F-150? 

There’s plenty of reasons the F-150 has been America’s top-selling truck for well over 30 years. It’s among the best for towing and payload, and there’s an endless array of configurations available. This year hybrid potential now joins that list of reasons with the F-150's first-ever 3.5L PowerBoost® V6 hybrid engine.

There’s also plenty of trim levels to choose from with options ranging from the budget-friendly XL model to the luxury-grade F-150 Limited. And this year the best gets even better with several new class-first features not found on any other models in the segment. Here’s just a few of the features found only on the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup:

  • SYNC® 4 Infotainment System with Over-the-Air Updates
  • Max Recline Front Seats
  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist with Reverse Guidance
  • Selectable Zone Lighting System
