2021 Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado vs. RAM 1500

Work smarter, not harder when you partner with the right truck. The Big Three, Ford, Chevy, and RAM each strive to provide a dependable, hardworking truck that fits a variety of needs. With the 2021 Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and RAM 1500, they have stepped it up a notch.

Outstanding Power

When looking at a work truck, you want to know that pickup is strong and capable. All three models will get the job done with multiple engine options for the kind of work you do. Of those engines on the base trim, the 2021 Ford F-150 comes in at 400 horsepower with the 5.0L V8 to be the most powerful. These engines are also paired with a responsive 10-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual to suit the way you drive. Chevy and RAM come in with an eight-speed transmission. Since the F-150 is slightly shorter and thinner, it is lighter in weight and offers a shorter turning radius to fit in tight spots.

Drive with Confidence

Loaded with safety systems, all three models will keep you safe in most conditions. Each one comes with antilock brakes and airbags. However, the 2021 Ford F-150 includes lane departure warning to the base trim to warn you if you drift into another lane. While this is an optional system for the RAM, Chevy doesn't include it on the base trim. Ford also includes in-vehicle assistance across all trims.

Today's Technology

With the base model, all three brands keep technology simple. All three have their own multimedia system, but navigation isn't an option on the base trims. Bluetooth capability is standard across the board, but Ford includes two LCD screens over one for the other two trucks. Ford also added speed-sensitive volume control for the base trim, which makes it easier to talk as you drive and hear outside sounds. Voice command is also standard from the base up on the Ford, but not for Chevy or RAM.

Moving Up in Trim Levels

As you move up into the higher trims, you get more amenities with the higher price. Expect more luxury with leather upholstery and heated front seats across all three brands. However, there are some differences. For instance, voice recognition and a touchscreen are standard, but Ford provides the best audio system with 18 speakers compared to 10 for the RAM. Ford only has two engines at the higher trim, but it comes with the 3.5L V6 for 430 horsepower to be more powerful than the other options. Ford also makes adaptive cruise control standard on the high-end trims.
