We here at Vachon Ford pride ourselves on our new inventory of Ford models includes some of the manufacturer's finest work in recent decades. Better yet, when you choose our dealership near Brooklyn, CT you'll receive attentive and diligent customer service in a hassle-free laid-back environment.


We understand that the idea of purchasing a new vehicle can be pretty daunting. It's a large purchase for anyone to make and you need a model that you can rely on for years to come. Rest assured that when you choose a Ford car, truck, or SUV, you'll have a vehicle that's been crafted to perform in all forms of weather that can further stand up to nearly any task. As a shopper for a Ford F-150 truck near Foster, RI you have plenty of options to choose from. You know the Ford F-150 is as tough as it's marketed, but how does it stack up against the competition?




Variety; that's what you'll get when you choose the Ford F-150 as your next workhorse. The model features a six-engine lineup so you can tailor your truck to what your lifestyle demands. The standard 2.7-liter Turbocharged EcoBoost engine generates 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque to give you ample power necessary to tow and haul whatever needs transporting.


Necessitate a little more "oomph" from your truck? Pick up the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost and you'll have plenty of power at your disposal with 375 horses under the hood and a Best-in-Class 470 pound-feet of torque to thrust you back into your seat. The F-150 also features a high-output version of this engine on the F-150 Raptor trim as well as three other powertrain options including a 3.0-liter power stroke turbo diesel.


The Ram 1500 features a three-engine lineup, so you'll have a little less freedom when picking your powertrain on the model compared to the F-150. With that being said, the engines are powerful. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar engine generates better horsepower and efficiency but doesn't quite live up to the impressive torque ratings on the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. The Ram 1500 also offers the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine as well as a configuration with eTorque, the manufacturer's Mild Hybrid System. This available engine still doesn't hold up compared to the offered high-output engine on the F-150 Raptor which stands mighty with Best-in-Class 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque ratings.


If you're looking for variety and impressive performance specs choose the Ford F-150 truck.

The Ram 1500 features the Uconnect 12.0 with Navigation which makes use of a 12-inch touchscreen as well as an available seven-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display.
