Compare the Ford F-150 to Chevrolet and RAM Trucks in Arcadia, LA

Shopping for your next truck can be a confusing task. With so many options and trucks available it can be hard to know which one is the best for your budget and lifestyle. We've taken all the favorite features and information you need when shopping for your next full-size truck, and combined them all together for an easy to use comparison tool.

Take a look at a few popular options to see why the Ford F-150 beats out the competition, time and again. Each truck is rugged and capable, there's no denying it, but when you get down to the details, you'll see why the F-150 is the right choice. With each offering plenty of engine options, cab sizes, bed sizes, and capability, let's look at the finer details.

The Ford F-150 vs the Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • The F-150 offers better towing and payload capacities
  • Better fuel efficiency with the F-150
  • Powerful base engine on the F-150, not so on the Silverado 1500

Both popular options, but the Chevrolet Silverado falls behind in many categories. If you're looking for best-in-class towing and payload, look no further than the Ford F-150. The Silverado trails in its 12,500-pound towing capacity, when you compare it to the F-150's impressive 13,200-pound towing capacity when properly equipped.  The Silverado also only has a payload capacity of 2,250-pounds, while the Ford can carry and impressive 3,300-pounds.

Not only is the Ford F-150 impressive with performance, it really shines on the inside. To get the highest-quality materials and interior feel, you'll have to shell out for the top-level trims on the Silverado. The infotainment touch screen display is not quite as intuitive and easy to use as the Ford SYNC 3® system. The Ford F-150 also offers Apple Car Play, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot, new for 2018.

The Ford F-150 vs the RAM 1500

  • Lack-luster towing abilities with the RAM 1500
  • Lower-quality interior materials
  • Poor fuel-efficiency with gasoline engines

The RAM 1500 has been known for its smooth ride quality for years, and while that's a great feature to have, when you're looking for a well-rounded truck, the F-150 is the better option. Sure, you'll get a nice quality ride, but if you can't tow or haul as much, is it really worth it? People buy trucks for a reason, and that's to tow and carry all of the things you need for life in Louisiana. The towing capacity of the RAM 1500 tops out at 10,640-pounds, a meager number when compared to the Ford F-150 and its capacity of 13,200-pounds.

Both the Ford and RAM options offer nice quality interiors, but the F-150 has a more intuitive design, with focus on comfort and driver convenience. With available rear heated seats on certain trim levels, the Ford F-150 can be your perfect family truck as well.

Trim Levels and Option Packages

While each truck offers three cab sizes and three comparable bed lengths, there are several different trim levels and options available with each truck.

The Ford F-150 is available in more than half a dozen levels with each offering something for everyone. Not every cab and bed length configuration is available with each level, so it's important to consider that before you choose your favorite trim. XL, XLT, Lariat, Raptor, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited are the available levels, ranging from a no-nonsense work truck to top of the line options.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers plenty of trim levels, but you generally have to upgrade to get any worthwhile features for an ideal daily driver. Available in the WT or Work Truck trim, as well as LS, LT, LTZ, and High Country.

The RAM 1500 is loaded with all sorts of trim levels, but like the Silverado, you don't get quite the variety you do with the F-150. Available trims include the Tradesman, Sport, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited levels.
