2020 Ram 1500 Classic vs 2020 Ford F-150
Moving into the new decade people still want to buy good old-fashioned trucks to get work done on their property or at their workplace. The Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 have risen to the challenge for years and years now, but which one should you pick in the new decade?
The 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, not to be confused with the 2020 Ram 1500 (non-classic), is a truck designed to continue the visual and performance legacy that has been running strong since the fourth generation of the Ram 1500 began in 2009. The table below compares the 2020 model year version of the Ram 1500 against the 2020 Ford F-150 in a few categories. All figures include models that may have available features and packages installed.

The 2020 Ram 1500 isn’t out to win a beauty pageant, but then again, neither is the Ford F-150. So, when it comes down to it, you can get a strong American pickup truck for less by choosing Ram 1500.
If you don’t have a bias toward one manufacturer or the other, both are worth being investigated, but an objective look at the engine shows a slight victory for the Ram side. Comparing the two engines listed in the table above, the Ram has 10 more lb-ft of torque and matches the horsepower of the Ford.
To get the most out of either vehicle, each should be properly equipped and maintained for heavy payloads, heavy-duty towing, and off-roading. With unique paint color options and an impressive branded sound system, the best equipped overall may be the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic.
