The Ford F-150 V6 EcoBoost puts out an impressive 365-horsepower and 420 ft/lbs @ 1700 rpm, while the V8 of the RAM 1500 offers 410 ft/lbs @3950 rpm.

When you need to pack it in and haul it off, the F150 can haul whatever you throw at it – delivering the Best-In-Class maximum payload capability. The Ford F-150 V8 easily beats out the RAM 1500 V8, putting up impressive numbers like a max payload of 1,810 lbs over the Ram 1500’s 1,632 lbs. And for added convenience, the engineers at Ford created a class-exclusive integrated tailgate step that stows inside the tailgate and includes a handy flip-up grab bar. Accessing your payload has never been easier.
In order to get the job done, you need to concentrate on a drive train that will be able to tow as much as possible. The Ford F-150 beats the maximum towing capacity – by almost 1,000 lbs! The Ford F-150 (when properly equipped) can tow up to 11,300-lbs while the RAM 1500 maxes out at 10,450-lbs.

When towing, Ford understands you need to experience not only exceptional capability, but control and convenience when towing a boat, trailer or whatever item the job calls for. F-150 offers standard trailer sway control (TSC) and an available factory-integrated trailer brake controller (TBC).
