red ford f-150 and a grey ram 1500

The Ford F-series has been the number one-selling line of pickup trucks in America for more than four decades, but everything has to come to an end sometime, right? Well, from the looks of the 2017 Ford F-150, that end is nowhere in sight!

Rather than resting on their laurels, Ford has rolled out an F-150 that rolls right over the top of the competition, with a newly engineered transmission system and additional engine options that leave the competitors lagging behind, along with a rugged exterior, refined cabin, and top-of-the-line amenities and technology that make the F-150 one of the most beloved trucks on the road. With more horsepower, more seating, and comparable fuel economy to the 2017 Ram 1500, it's not difficult to see why the F-150 comes out on top. Advantage: Ford F-150

Amazing Ford Power and Handling

When it comes to horsepower and torque, it's hard for the 2017 Ram 1500 to keep up with the Ford F-150's new EcoBoost engine options. In fact, the Ford F-150 can crank around 385 horsepower compared to only 305 from the Ram 1500, not to mention the F-150's best-in-class torque from a V6 engine. With the addition of a new 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2017 Ford F-150 takes its already impressive power and handling to the next level. Of course, for ultimate off-road performance, there's always the F-150 Raptor. 500 pounds lighter thanks to military-grade aluminum alloy and a high-strength steel frame, the Raptor is the ultimate in off-road excitement. Advantage: Ford F-150

State-of-the-Art Design and Features

You want your truck to be Ford tough on the outside, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy all the most modern comforts on the inside. From available heated and cooled seats to dual-zone comfort controls and all the other amenities that you can imagine, along with the latest in safety technology including a Blind Spot Information System and optional SYNC Connect technology that lets you check your fuel level or start your vehicle all from your smartphone, the design and features of the 2017 Ford F-150 are every bit as impressive as its rugged exterior and powerful engine. Plus, it's has more combined seating and more legroom than the competition! What more could you ask for? Advantage: Ford F-150
