If you are considering buying a light-duty, full-size pickup, then you need to take a look at the differences between the two top competitors in the class - the 2022 Ram 1500 and the 2022 Ford F-150. Both trucks (at first) seem identical. They each come with V6, V8, and diesel powertrain options; and they are produced in three body styles across eight trims.
First impressions can be deceiving, however - and the new Ram 1500 proves superior in terms of power, fuel economy, and technology. What's even better is that this platform is currently available at Standard Dodge in Saskatchewan. You can schedule an appointment for a test drive today!
2022 Ram 1500 in Saskatchewan: V6 Performance
First, the Ram 1500 is equipped with Canada's top-selling 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine. Paired with the eTorque mild hybrid system, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and your choice of RWD or 4WD, it generates 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. This puts the average fuel economy rating at 11.9 L100 km (24 mpg) in the city and 9.4 L/100 km (30 mpg) on the highway.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Ford F-150 uses a gas-guzzling 3.3-litre V6 - which delivers a mere 12 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 9.8 L/100 km (24 mpg) on the highway.
2022 Ram 1500 Saskatchewan: V8 Performance
The new Ram 1500 can also be fitted with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Pumping out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, it earns 13.4 L/100 km (21 mpg) in the city and 10.5 L/100 km (27 mpg) on the highway, making it one of the most fuel-efficient V8s on the market.
On the other hand, the 2022 F-150 is coupled with a 5.0-litre V8. While its toque output proves the same as the Ram, its fuel economy proves less inspiring. It achieves a mere 15.4 L/100 km (15 mpg) in the city and 11 L/100 km (21 mpg) on the highway, leaving drivers scrambling to find a pump.
2022 Ram 1500 in Saskatchewan: Diesel Performance
With the 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine rumbling under the hood, the 2022 Ram 1500 churns out 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. This effortlessly accommodates payloads, and it affords a fuel economy rating of 10.7 L/100 km (22 mpg) in the city and 7.1 L/100 km (33 mpg) on the highway.
In comparison, the new Ford F-150 houses a 3.0-litre V6 diesel motor. This pushes out 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, proving less adaptable when towing; and it also doesn't impress at the pump, yielding as estimated rating of 11.9 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 9.1 L/100 km (21 mpg) on the highway.
2022 Ram 1500 in Saskatchewan: Infotainment
Available on the 2022 Ram 1500 is the state-of-the-art Uconnect 5 multimedia centre. This advanced interface is displayed on either an 8.4- or 12-inch touchscreen. Up to two mobile devices can be synced via Bluetooth, and five unique user profiles can also be saved. The operating system delivers faster-than-ever speeds and has wireless both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
As for the new Ford F-150, it comes with the Sync 4 display. Functioning on a smaller standard 8-inch touchscreen, this system offers wireless smartphone integration on only its higher trims.
