Balanced strength determines 2014 Ram 1500 vs 2014 Ford F-150 winner Ingram Park CDJ weighs in capabilities of two leading pickup trucks
SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The challenge of determining the best pickup truck in the industry continues at Ingram Park CDJ. While choosing the ideal vehicle is certainly a personal preference for drivers, the San Antonio dealership aims to provide prospective truck buyers with the information needed to make an educated purchase. Both exhibiting outstanding strengths, the 2014 Ram 1500 and 2014 Ford F-150 give drivers a challenge when choosing their next pickup truck.
Known for its ability to haul more cargo than any of its competitors, the 2014 Ford F-150 stands out for its unbridled power. When properly outfitted with the available 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the truck can tow upwards of 11,300 pounds in a single haul. If its 3.7-liter V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission are employed, the F-150 earns an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 23 mpg highway while creating a 302-horsepower performance.
While towing capacity is certainly a leading factor in a truck's performance, a more well-rounded drive is what earns vehicles the title of Motor Trend's "Truck of the Year" two years in a row. The 2014 Ram 1500 can be equipped with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine to generate 305 horsepower and a best-in-class EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway fuel economy. An upgrade to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with Fuel Saver Technology earns the driver a 10,450-pound towing capacity.
Both the 2014 Ford F-150 and 2014 Ram 1500 present noteworthy strengths within their class, but if a driver is searching for a well-rounded performance, the 2014 Ram 1500 may be the more advantageous choice. As a blend of power and efficiency, the 1500 exceeds the expectations of any truck driver.
