Power and Fuel Efficiency in the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150

V6 and V8 engines are both available with the new RAM 1500, as well as the Ford F-150. But Indianapolis drivers tend to gravitate toward the 1500 specs, even with each vehicle’s transmission performing at a high level:

  • F-150 Engines: Six engine options are available with the Ford F-150, maxing out at 450 hp with a 3.5L twin-turbo or a 395-hp 5.0L V8.
  • RAM 1500 Engines: Fuel economy shines with the RAM 1500, with a mild hybrid V8 engine system available for Carmel roads, and a max 395-hp 5.7L V8.
  • Transmissions: The RAM 1500 makes an 8-speed automatic transmission available, while the F-150 can be had with a 6-speed automatic or a 10-speed automatic.
  • Fuel Economy Ratings: The RAM 1500 and F-150 both offer 20 mpg city, while the RAM offers 25 mpg and the F-150 offers 26 mpg highway.

Towing Capacity for F-150 or Ram 1500

Maxing out at 12,750 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped, the 2019 RAM 1500 features Best-in-Class* V8 towing with the 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque.
