See How These Top Selling Pickup's Stack Up, Side by Side

The full-size pickup class is full of options, but three of the most popular pickup trucks around Napoleon and Montpelier are the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and RAM 1500. While all these trucks have their own respective benefits, the Ford F-150 offers Hicksville and Archbold drivers a lot more for their money.

With first-in-class towing and hauling capability, tons of trims from which to choose, and plenty of power too, the Ford F-150 has what you're looking for in your next pickup truck. Let us explain in further detail just how the F-150 meets or beats the the Silverado 1500 and RAM 1500 across multiple criteria.

Available Trim Levels

Buying a pickup, no matter which brand you choose, can seem like option overload at times. Typically, new pickup trucks are available in a wide array of body styles with different bed lengths available as well. To add to that, new pickup trucks are often available in a wide variety of trim models as well.

The Ford F-150 strikes what many consider to be a good balance of available options without becoming excessive and creating choice overload. The F-150 is available in six trim models, three bed lengths, and two cab styles. The Silverado 1500, in contrast, offers three cabs and three bed lengths in addition to eight trims. The RAM 1500 has the potential to be even more confusing, thanks to roughly a dozen available trims and three cab and bed styles.

Overall Power

The Ford F-150 comes with four available engine options, with the maximum available power being 450 horsepower. In comparison, a new RAM 1500 offers a maximum of 395 horsepower, and a new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers up to 420 horsepower. Weather you're working in Napoleon or Hicksville, when it comes time to get the job done, there's no truck quite as powerful as a new Ford F-150.

Hauling and Towing Capability

The Ford F-150 beats out both the RAM 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 regarding both hauling and towing capability. The F-150 can tow up to 13,200 pounds and haul up to 3,270 pounds. The Silverado 1500, by comparison, can only tow up to 12,500 pounds or haul up to 2,250 pounds. The RAM 1500 can tow a maximum of 10,640 pounds and haul up to 1,880 pounds.

Available Safety Features

The Ford F-150 comes standard with a rearview camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, but there are many other available active safety features, too. From a 360-degree camera system to lane keep assist to rear cross traffic alert, and stop-and-go technology, your options for active safety features on the F-150 are bountiful. The Silverado 1500 comes with a rearview camera and Teen Driver system as standard features and can be equipped with plenty of active safety features. The RAM 1500 comes standard with a rearview camera, but can also be equipped with its own suite of active safety features. All in all, the Ford F-150, RAM 1500, and Silverado 1500 are all very safe trucks, but the F-150 arguably has the edge with its innovative Dynamic Hitch Assist coming standard on all models.
