2024 Ram 1500 Specs Comparison

The 2024 Ram 1500 engine and performance options alone relegate Ford to second place in this review. Just consider the base powertrains: while both trucks come with a six-cylinder engine, only the Ram V6 boasts standard hybridization. This Ram hybrid technology — known formally as the eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System — blends capability-enhancing features with fuel-saving innovation.

Hiding out of sight is a coil-spring rear suspension design that endows the Ram with superior ride and handling compared to the old-fashioned rear leaf springs found on nearly every F-150 trim. You can even upgrade to an Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension System on certain Ram trims — further proof that this is truly the no-compromise, cutting-edge truck that Maine Ram fans want.
