Well Ford has come out with the latest version of the best selling F 150.
And before you get all excited, the company released pretty much none of the good information.
I don't have power payload or towing capacity.
Heck, I don't even have price but I've got a few nuggets.
So let's take a look at the F 150 and the Ram 1500 And sort out their size and angles, basic engine specs and what we know about cargo.
Now these trucks come in a variety of cabin bed sizes but I'm gonna stick to the popular crew cab with With the shortest bed possible in four wheel drive, so when the F-150 that's the SuperCrew with the five and a half foot bed.
The Ram 1500 is a crew cab with a five foot seven inch box.
The latest F-150 is just the tiniest bit bigger than last year With the wheel base of about 12 feet one inch.
The ramp 1500 is at 12 feet and a tiny little half an inch.
Overall length the F150 is at 19 feet 4 inches.
The ramp is at 19 feet 5 inches.
As for height, the Ford reaches about six feet five inches into the air.
The ram just to sketch taller at six feet five and a half inches.
The width of the Ford is six feet seven inches without mirrors.
Meanwhile, the RAM is a bit more perky at six feet nine and a half inches wide.
Now we're not looking at the off road Ford Raptor or RAM rebel, but I did want to talk geometry just a little bit here as well.
The F150 has an approach angle of 24.3 degrees, the RAM is at 19.0 degrees.
Departure angle for the Ford is 25.3, the RAM is at 24.9.
Finally breakover angle is 20.0 degrees for the F150 and 19.5 degrees for the 1500.
Ground clearance for the Ford is 9.4 inches while the RAM rides 8.7 inches off the ground.
I should note, however, that the rim offers an optional air suspension, and that can bring the approach angle to 23.3 degrees.
The departure angle to 27.2 degrees, and the breaker angle to 23 degrees.
It can also raise the ground clearance, to 10.8 inches.
Moving inside, the Ford F-150 has 43.9 inches of legroom.
The Ram 1500 has only 40.9 inches.
Rear seat passengers can get 33.6 inches of leg room in the F150 or 45.2 inches in the Ram 1500 looking at the bed the five and a half foot bed in Ford is actually 67.1 inches long.
While the actual size of the five foot seven inch bed in the RAM is 67.4 inches long.
The depth of both beds is the same at 21.4 inches.
The F 150 has a volume of 52.8 cubic feet while the Ram 1500 is at a volume of 53.9 cubic feet.
Now when it comes to engines, we've got a lot of options here.
The Ford F 150 has a gas power 3.3 liter V six, 2.7 liter EcoBoost v six and a five liter V six.
Meanwhile, ram gets a gas powered 5.7 liter, V eight diesel is on tap two with Ford's three liter power store.
Stroke basics and Rams three liter eco diesel v six.
Ford also has a full hybrid 3.5 liter power boost v six, while ram has the mild hybrid 3.6 liter V six and also in the 5.7 liter V eight power gets to the ground with a 10 speed automatic transmission in all Ford engines.
Well ram gets it done with an eight speed auto.
I wish I knew more about the F150.
But that's all the information that company is giving out right now.
I'm stoked to hear more about the full hybrid however and see how that electric motor effects towing prowess.
For now all I can say is that the 2021 F150 and the current generation of the Ram 1500 looks to be equally matched in size, although four does offer more engine choices.
Once we know more I'll be sure to get those numbers to you our truck loving readers.
