The 2015 Ram 1500 is really striving to be an innovative and advanced truck of the future, today. Don't believe it? Cutter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Honolulu has them in stock and will happily show Kaneohe, Wahiawa, Hawaii Kai, HI area residents all of its advanced, exclusive features.
The Ford F-150 is a perennial favorite of 1/2-ton truck buyers, but even its brand new design lacks some features the Ram 1500 offers.
Most Ram 1500 trucks get a standard eight-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting and easy command of the gearing range, the F-150 only offers six-speed, which means you'll be maxed out for cruising much sooner. More speeds help the Ram get better gas mileage, without sacrificing acceleration or towing ability. The eight-speed transmission in the Ram 1500 even has a gear to keep the engine at the peak of its torque curve, no matter its speed or load it's carrying.
People buy trucks for many reasons, and a lot of those reasons involve hauling tools and slarge cargo. Optional on nearly all Ram 1500 trucks, no matter the trim or body style, is the exclusive Rambox. Built into the sides of the bed are two lockable, lit, storage compartments, which open with a click of the key fob, and even have built-in drains so they can be used as ice chests. With an F-150, you'd need to add a separate lockable tool box or ice chest in the bed, or pack everything in the cab. The drainable Rambox is especially good for hauling dirty gear and tools securely.
Ford sells an excellent Powerstroke diesel engine in the F-series trucks, unfortunately you need to step up to the F-250 Super Duty before you can get one. The Ram 1500 has an optional, class-exclusive, 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine available in most models. This engine puts out 420 lb-ft. of torque for up to 9,200lbs of towing capacity, while still getting 20 mpg in city use, and 28 on the highway.
