The RAM 1500 Stands Above The Competition

The RAM 1500 vs. The Competition

Trucks are invaluable vehicles to those who need and want them near Gastonia. Built with awesome power, comfortable interiors, and technology to increase capability, the 2021 Ram 1500, 2021 Ford F-150, and 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 all enhance their driver's work and everyday life. But which one outclasses the others? For those looking for the best, the 2021 Ram 1500 should come to mind.

The 2021 Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 should come as no surprise to be one of the best, if not the best, trucks out on the market near Charlotte. With a base 305 horsepower V6 engine, there is already plenty to love. Several other engines are available, like the 260 horse V6 diesel engine, the two 395 horsepower V8 engines (one of those is a mild-hybrid), and the absurdly powerful 702 horsepower supercharged V8 engine. Each of these engines pairs with a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. In terms of handling, the Ram 1500 is stable and composed on the road, and it delivers a plush ride like no other truck can.

Since all Ram 1500 models are available with four-wheel drive, making it an easy truck to cross sand and snow. For serious off-roaders, the Rebel and all-new TRX trims deliver additional features like skid plates, off-road suspension components, and locking differentials. And finally, the Ram 1500 can tow up a maximum of 12,750 pounds when properly equipped.

It is also important to note that the Ram 1500 TRX won the Motortrend Truck of the Year award and that Ram trucks have won this prestigious award three years in a row now.

The 2021 Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 is one powerful competitor to the Ram 1500 around Lincolnton. It has a variety of powerful features and technology to give it an edge in certain areas. For the powertrain, the F-150 features six different engines. The base engine is a 290 horsepower V6 engine, slightly under the Ram 1500's base engine. The F-150's hybrid engine, which features a large EcoBoost V6 and an electric motor, throws out a total of 430 horsepower. It does not feature a supercharged engine like the Ram 1500 does. The F-150 is also easy to drive and maneuver on the road. The suspension easily absorbs most road imperfections. However, the F-150 cannot keep up with the Ram 1500's plush interior.

Just like the Ram 1500, the F-150 offers a four-wheel drive, creating decent off-road ability. It also features several off-road packages to enhance your adventures with this truck. This truck can tow up to 14,000 pounds and haul up to 3,325 poundswhen properly equipped.

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

For the Chevy Silverado 1500, comparing to the Ram 1500 is tough near Fort Mill. It features five engines. The base engine is a 285 horsepower V6 engine, but it lacks in the towing and hauling department. Its 420 horsepower V8 engine does a much better job and is the wiser choice. In confined areas, this full-size pickup truck does fairly well. It is stable around turns and has good overall handling. The ride is comfortable but nowhere near as plush as the Ram 1500.

The Silverado 1500 features a four-wheel-drive like the competition, but it still does not have the same capability as the Ram 1500 when going off-road. In terms of towing, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 13,300 pounds and haul up to 2,280 pounds.

The Clear Winner: The RAM 1500

The 2021 Ram 1500, despite tough competition, comes out on top. This is due in thanks to some amazing powertrain options, a plush interior, and great capability. You can see how the Ram 1500 works with your own eyes by coming in for a test drive today near Rock Hill.
