As you can see, the Ram 1500 offers stronger performance in all categories. In addition, you’ll find several available systems that can’t be equipped in the F-150, including an available self-leveling air suspension. On top of that, the RamBox Cargo management system:

  • Offers a locking, drainable side-rail cargo box for tailgating at Timberwolves games

  • Supplies a cargo box lighting system for late-night tasks

  • Can be equipped with a cargo bed extender, great for hauling extra-long cargo.

Lastly, while both the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 are available in off-road specific configurations, the Ram 1500 Rebel is offered with several exclusive features:

  • LED Foglights

  • Bilstein Shock Absorbers

  • 33” Toyo Tires

If you’re looking for them in the F-150 Raptor, you’re out of luck. Choose the Ram 1500 for more exciting off-road driving.
