Discover What Sets the Legendary Ford F-150 Apart from the Pickup Truck Competition

For more than 40 years, the Ford F-150 full-sized pickup has dominated roads in and around the Cincinnati area. An icon that works well as either a primary family vehicle or a work truck, the F-150 is one of the most popular models at Kerry Ford, and we enjoy recommending it to our customers from West Chester to Hamilton.

While the F-150 is a versatile and popular choice for any driver, we're aware that there are plenty of other trucks in this class that may be vying for your attention. But we also know that no other model delivers legendary Ford quality, reliability, and power, built in.

The Ford F-150 vs. the Competition

Choosing a new, full-sized pickup truck in the Fairfield and Springdale area can feel like a challenge. But the new Ford F-150 is up to the challenge. Need a little more information before choosing? We can help. We've done our homework and compared this impressive truck to a couple of competing models from other brands. Read on and discover just some of the reasons why you should test drive the Ford F-150 today.

Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

  • Hybrid option. Love the boost of power you can only get with the Ford F-150, but crave the efficiency of a hybrid system? The latest F-150 models are available with the Ford PowerBoost system, which combines the model's range-topping turbo V6 with an electric motor and battery pack. It produces 430 horsepower, and you won't find anything like it anywhere in the Silverado 1500 lineup. It also brings your number of F-150 choices to six, whereas the Chevy only has five engines available.
  • Utility and power. Whether it's a family RV or your trailer loaded with heavy tools, when you want a truck that can help you pull and haul maximum amounts of heavy weight, the Ford F-150 is there for you. Depending on how you have it configured, the F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds, while the Chevy Silverado 1500 tops out at 13,400 pounds. Plus, the F-150 has a greater payload capacity as well, with a 3,325-pound rating, compared to 2,250 pounds for the Chevy.

Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500

  • Powertrain options. Once again, the Ford F-150 has more engine options available than the competing model from Ram. Where the Ram 1500 has four engines, the F-150 is more customizable with a menu that includes more engines and a greater range of power choices. The Ram also doesn't offer a true hybrid model, the way the F-150 does. The base model Ram comes with a mild hybrid assist that helps improve overall fuel economy, but it's not a fully hybrid system like the Ford PowerBoost.
  • Towing and payload. From towing your heavy loads to hauling cargo in its bed, the Ford F-150 has higher utility ratings and is more useful than the Ram 1500. You can look for a maximum towing capacity of 14,000 pounds with our Ford truck, and just 12,750 on the Ram. For payload capacity, expect up to 3,325 pounds for the F-150, and a maximum of around 2,300 pounds for the Ram 1500.
