The RAM Welcomes Another Contender

The 2022 RAM 1500 brings capability, poise, and luxury to every journey thanks to incredible engine choices, impeccable craftsmanship, and cutting-edge technology. Of course, with its success and victories, other trucks like the Ford F-150 feel insecure and try their best to show you they’ve got what it takes to earn your trust. Let’s put that to the test and put the 2022 RAM head-to-head with the 2022 Ford F-150 and see which truck comes out on top.

We’ll try not to spoil this exciting matchup, but to explore the winner in person, make your way down to our Central Florida Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealership and come take a test drive.

The RAM Starts Off Strong

The 2022 RAM 1500 Tradesman serves as the entry level pickup truck for the RAM 1500 lineup. Offering four doors, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and a standard 67.7 inches of cargo bed length. Ensuring that its rugged attitude comes standard, black bumpers match the black door handles and mirror trim, while a black grille and automatic halogen headlights ensure the RAM 1500 is ready to get the job done.

Climb aboard, and you’ll find seating for six thanks to 117 cubic feet of cargo space, and all the essentials like air conditioning, and power windows.

Move over to the 2022 Ford F-150 XL and you’ll quickly see its shortcomings. Between the fact that it only features two doors, smaller 17-inch alloy wheels and a shorter bed. Even with the longest bed option, the F-150’s bed falls just shy of the standard bed found on the RAM.

Climb aboard the F-150 and you’ll find seating accommodations for only three thanks to the two-door configuration. However, inside you’ll find adequate accommodations like air conditioning and power windows.

The RAM Features More Advanced Performance

The 2022 RAM 1500 offers impressive performance and advanced tech under the hood that comes standard. Ensuring that your workhorse is always ready for the task, the RAM truck features a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque that delivers a resounding 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Featuring an advanced mild hybrid system that powers traditionally belt driver accessories and offers instant torque, the RAM 1500 is always ready to conquer.

Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the RAM 1500 features a standard towing capacity of 7,730 pounds and can return an EPA estimated 25MPG on the highway.

Powering the 2022 F-150 is a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine that once again falls short of the RAM. Only generating 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, the engine is not nearly as advanced or powerful as the RAM’s. Trying to make up for its lack of power, the F-150 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, it still falls short–only being able to tow 5,000lbs in its most standard form, while only achieving an EPA estimated 24MPG on the highway.

Touchable In-Cabin Technology

Climb aboard the RAM 1500 and you’ll find an array of standard features. Connecting you to the outside world is a standard five-inch touchscreen display that offers Bluetooth connectivity and AM/FM/SiriusXM connectivity. The standard six speaker audio system plays your favorite tunes with clarity, while the standard media hum features two USB ports to connect your smartphone.

Get inside the 2022 Ford F-150 and you’ll find an eight-inch touchscreen that offers AM/FM radio and even Wi-Fi Hotspot connectivity, but you won’t hear a peep about SiriusXM satellite radio unless you pay extra for it.

The RAM Brings Advanced Safety

The RAM 1500 features an abundance of safety features that all come standard. From electronic anti-roll mitigation to keep you planted, and even trailer sway damping to keep your trailer in control. Helping you maneuver as you reverse, the standard backup camera gives you a clear view of what’s behind you, while advanced features like Tire Fill Alert help you fill your tires to a safe pressure without a pressure gauge.

In the unfortunate event of a collision, a team of dual stage airbags comes to the rescue, shielding you from the impact as the RAM 1500’s crumple zones deflect energy away from the cabin.

The Ford F-150 employs standard features like stability control and antilock brakes, but largely relies on its dual stage airbags to keep you safe.
