If strength, safety, and the latest technology are at the top of your list, the 2020 Ford F-150 is ready to deliver! We've done our homework here at Napleton Ford and are about to share how it stacks up against a tough competitor, the 2020 Ram 1500, and why it sntached that first place trophy. Stop into our dealership today to witness it with your own eyes and see how easy it is to take it home with our lease and financing plans!


We won't waste any time and will just jump right in with the impressive capabilities of these two full-size pickup trucks. First, you'll be happy to hear that the F-150 provides you a staggering 13,000-lb. maximum towing capacity1 with its available 3.5L Ecoboost® V6 engine. This means you can load up the truck bed with those heavy components for work or equip a trailer. Sadly, the Ram 1500 lacks such strength with its 12,750-lb. maximum towing capacity1, meaning you will have to leave some of those necessary items behind. When you're waiting in traffic on Washington Street in the Ford, its handy auto Stop/Start Technology will shut the engine off and turn it on when it's time to get moving, all to save you gas. It also comes with optional Pro Trailer Backup Assist™2, which allows you to easily attach a boat and reverse by simply turning a knob to guide it out of a spot. These two features are nowhere to be found on the Ram 1500, even on higher trim levels.


Whether you have the 2020 F-150 and 2020 Ram 1500 parked neatly in your driveway or are cruising through town, you'll be turning heads. While each model has various exterior paint colors that you are able to choose from, the F-150 definitely gives you more variety with its 11 different hues. Your options are somewhat limited when it comes to its Ram competition as it only comes in eight shades. You will also love the sophisticated available 170-degree rear door only found on the Ford that opens widely for your passengers to easily enter in. Last, but definitely not least, both grant you optional LED headlamps and taillamps that will let you easily see and be seen when you venture out and about after the sun has set. Prepare to make waves no matter where you're heading!


Shall we look at the technology features included within these two trucks? In each model, you will have an optional digital display located in front of you that shows you your remaining fuel as well as warning signs for your vehicle. The difference is that in the Ford is an 8-inch display, while there is a smaller 7-inch option within the Ram. Another feature you'll love in the F-150 is that you can connect Amazon Alexa and Waze both through the available SYNC®3 AppLink4 infotainment center. Then, you can access traffic updates, do some online shopping, and tap into navigation. Plus, the F-150 outshines the Ram 1500 with its FordPass5 App because once you've installed it into your smartphone, it will be a breeze to check fuel levels, get vehicle health alerts, schedule service and maintenance, and so much more.

Now that you've skimmed through our 2020 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ram 1500 near Gurnee, IL, comparison, we hope it's clear cut that the F-150 wins the gold medal.
