2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2019 Ford F-150
If there is one thing that ties all full-size pickup truck owners together, it's that they are very loyal to their brands. Not only is the incredibly popular Ram 1500 available at Billion Auto Group, but the automaker has added more than a few features that may break this cycle. A comparison of the 2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2019 Ford F-150 will present a pretty simply case for why traditional Ford buyers might finally be interesting in making the switch. For the new model year, Ram has completely redesigned its entry to the highly competitive full-size pickup truck. Crew cab models have more interior space, higher capacities for payload in the cargo bed and for towing as well as improved fuel economy scores. The 2019 Ram 1500 is now available at Billion Auto Group. Customers can schedule a test drive today by calling, 406-556-9071.
The biggest change made to the 2019 Ram 1500 is the addition of what is known as a mild hybrid system. Basically, Ram has installed a powerful electric motor to the entry-level V-6 engine. The idea is that the electric motor will take a little stress off the engine under certain conditions which will improve fuel economy. The mild hybrid is also available on some V-8 engines, too. Most importantly this didn't come at the expense of performance. Most Billion Auto Group buyers will be choosing a trim grade using the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter, V-6 engine making more than 300 horsepower. This creates a noticeable disparity with the 2019 Ford F-150 that tops out at 290 horsepower. Providing a comfortable ride has long been a strong selling point for the Ram truck family. The automaker has improved its famous air suspension for the new model year.

Modern pickup trucks are more than just brawny workhorses, they also have the brains to match. Both the 2019 versions of the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 feature infotainment systems that are compatible with Apple- and Android-based smartphone applications. However, for the 2019 model year, Ram buyers will be getting the fourth-generation Uconnect system that features a class-exclusive 12-inch customizable touchscreen interface. Two applications can be run at the same time thanks to a new split-screen capability. The Ford F-150 has yet to make this development available to its owners. Finally, a 360-degree Surround View Camera provides a top-down perspective of the vehicle when maneuvering space is limited.
