Find Out Why the 2019 Ford F-150 Outshines the Ram 1500

When it comes to pickup trucks, capability is king. You can get one with all kinds of fancy gadgets and splashy interior décor, but the most important aspect of a truck is what it can help you accomplish. Whether you need something to haul construction supplies, pull a trailer, or drive through deep mud or snow, a pickup truck is the best vehicle for getting it done. Over the last 30-plus years, the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America. It has some of the most powerful engines in the industry and a tough body made from steel and military-grade aluminum alloy for durability. Ram trucks also have good utility and well-built cabs. But here at Vachon Ford, we think drivers in Plainfield, CT will agree that the F-150 is the better truck when everything is taken into account. Keep reading to see why.
