Vehicle shown above is the 2017 F-150 King Ranch® Luxury SuperCrew® 4x4 in two-tone White Platnum Metallic Tri-Coat/Caribou with available 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with Light Caribou-painted pockets, available Fx4 Off-Road Package and available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6. 

 

 

 

Choosing the best full-size pickup truck can be challenge, especially with so many out there. That is why we here at Capital Ford have created this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Ram 1500 in Carson City, NV, comparison to help you in your decision-making process. Afterwards, you’ll understand why the Ford F-150 transcends the Ram 1500 in every way. Visit our dealership today to check it out!

Grip the steering wheel and feel the power rumbling under the hoods of these two full-size pickup trucks. With no less than four powertrain options, the Ford F-150 is fully equipped to handle whatever task you need. You may feel a bit limited in what you can accomplish in the Ram 1500, as it offers only three engine options. Perhaps one of the most impressive available engines the F-150 offers is the 2.7L Ecobbost® V6. Despite its smaller size, it still has an exceptional 8,500-lb. towing capacity1 and a 2,210-lb payload capacity1. Even the larger available 3.6L V6 powertrain in the Ram 1500 doesn’t even come close to the F-150’s capability. It only manages a 7,610-lb. towing capacity1 and an 1,890-lb. payload capacity1. Equipped with Start-Stop Technology, this F-150 powertrain also saves you money at the pump by automatically shutting the engine off when not in use, thus conserving gas. The Ram 1500, on the other hand, does not come with such a feature.

Now let’s take this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Ram 1500 in Carson City, NV, competition to the interior of both. Feel free to stretch out in the 43.9 inches of legroom and the 40.8 inches of front head room in the driver's seat of the F-150. You may feel a little cramped in the Ram 1500, due to its limited 41 inches of front legroom and 39.9 inches of front head room. You’ll also find your constant trips to the Walmart Supercenter and Harbor Freight Tools to be extremely comfortable, thanks to the 10-way power-adjustable driver and passenger’s seat, which comes standard on the F-150 Limited model. You’ll have to shell out some more cash for this item, as it is only an available amenity in the Ram 1500.

When you need some assistance while operating your pickup truck, the Ford F-150 has got you covered. Take note of your surroundings from the comfort of the front seat with the available 360-degree camera with split-view display2. Four cameras are displayed on an available 8-inch touchscreen to give you multiple eyes all around your vehicle. The Ram 1500 only has a backup camera for you to see what’s behind you. While the Ram 1500 does offer some driver-assist technologies, such as Trailer Sway Control3 and Hill Start Assist for your trailering needs, the F-150 offers something better: the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™2. All it takes is the turn of a knob to direct your trailer in the direction you need it to go.

As this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Ram 1500 in Carson City, NV, comparison comes to an end, the obvious winner is the Ford F-150. Stop by Capital Ford, located at 3660 South Carson Street in Carson City, NV, to test drive one today!

Capitol Ford has been amazing!!! My boyfriend's truck had a warranty issue and it was fixed in no time! Their customer service was AMAZING!!! very nice and professional! We were having a very hard time at Jones West Ford, being disrespected! Working in the customer service field and being talked to the way we were at Jones West Ford was 0% not okay! Capitol Ford saved us and we are as happy as can be!! Our truck was fixed within a timely manner and they called with updates as they came available! We couldn't be any more happier!! If you have any Ford vehicle I recommend Capitol Ford in Carson City 100%!!!

I am very pleased with the experience I had working with Valente and the team at Capital Ford in Carson City Nevada. I contacted the dealer multiple times over the course of almost 1 year before making a final decision to purchase. The team in Carson was professional and helpful during each interaction. Valente went out of his way to find the right vehicle for me and worked hard to make sure all available rebates and incentives were applied to the purchase. I'm very pleased with the way the overall process was conducted. I will continue to refer folks to this dealership whenever I can.

Always welcoming....
