2022 Ford F-150 vs. 2022 Ram 1500
Indeed, if you are in the market for a new pickup truck, the 2022 Ford F-150 and 2022 Ram 1500 have undoubtedly entered your lexicon. Inspecting these two goliaths, we find enhanced capabilities, advanced safety features, and powerful performance. So, pair that with the fact that these two large-size pickups offer so many different trims, packages, and configuration options you essentially have a custom-made, perfectly tailored truck for you. Still, there must be a NO. 1 and a NO. 2, and today we will look to see why the 2022 Ford F-150 still reigns supreme while touting the claim “Ford F-Series—The best-selling trucks for 45 years.”
Power & Performance Across Top Models
While both the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 boast immense power and impressive performance with an overwhelming variety of optional engines. Ford takes the edge over Ram with unforgettably unforgiving raw power thanks to the 24-valve, 3.5-liter twin-turbo HO Ecoboost® engine available on the all-new 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor®, which also includes Ford port-fuel, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and direct-injection (PFDI) system. This beastly engine generates a massive 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft of torque. Comparing that to the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited’s 5.7-liter V-8 engine, we find it holds a few more liters but only nets 395 horsepower while equipping you with just an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Ram 1500 will cover options for gasoline-powered and hybrid engines but slacks on an utterly electric model, while Ford comes in clutch with its all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning trim.
Space, Tech, and Reliability
When it comes to the perfect pickup truck, it should possess aggressive power, agile handling, and enhanced capabilities. Still, at the same time, a competent utility vehicle needs to provide ample space, trustworthy reliability, and confidence-inducing safety features—and the 2022 Ford F-150 supplies just that. Ford offers a complete range of cab styles, including regular, extended, and crew. In contrast, Ram only offers a choice between an extended cab or crew cab, leaving no accommodation if you’re needs and preferences lean towards a traditional cab design. The 2022 Ford F-150 also provides three different bed lengths topping out at 8 feet, while a 2022 Ram 1500’s bed offerings stop at 7 feet. The Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 offer a similar suite of technologies, including integrated Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a premium audio system, and a navigation system while simultaneously offering comparable safety enhancements like adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking, and driving assistance features.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Comes Out On Top
As we conclude this battle, though it was a close race, we find parked and centered in the winner’s circle the all-powerful 2022 Ford F-150. Both utility trucks are fully capable, brilliantly powerful, and prepped for whatever scenario crosses their paths, but the Ford F-150 comes out on top every time. Becoming an F-150 owner means commanding the roads both on and off with daringly bold confidence, and you’ll soon find features only offered on the F-150. For instance, Ford provides the Pro Power Onboard feature, which transforms your truck into a mobile generator while producing up to 7,200 watts of electricity. Combine this with the available Work Surface feature that turns your center console into a convenient workspace; you’ll have unparalleled versatility in your pickup.
