Ford F-150 Dominates the Market for Good Reason

There is no mystery why the Ford F-150 was the best-selling pickup truck in the country for 40 years in row, something that Ram, Chevrolet and Nissan only wishes they could say. As a result of Ford's innovative engineering, cutting-edge auto technology, intelligent designing and a steadfast commitment to the absolute highest levels of quality possible, the F-150 is largely considered to be the most desirable and most advanced pickup model that the industry has to offer within the world of trucks.

And the refreshed 2018 Ford F-150 model-year is in fact more appealing than ever before, making it even tougher for rivals to keep pace!


Comparing Power Under the Hoods

Horsepower under the hood, towing capabilities as well as hauling abilities are all very important to most pickup truck shoppers. Well, the simple fact of the matter is that you cannot beat best-in-class which is exactly what the new F-150 delivers.


And in addition, Ford offers a far wider and more versatile range of engines and optional equipment than Ram, Chevy and Nissan, meaning that you're much more likely to find the perfect configuration for you with the F-150.


Towing Capacity & Technology

  • The new Ford F-150 officially consists of the best-in-class towing abilities, rated at a staggering 13,200 pounds! The Ram 1500 falls short with a capacity of only 10,620 pounds.
  • Chevy gets close to matching Ford, but no cigar, with a respectable trailering rating of up to 12,500 pounds for the Silverado 1500.
  • Speaking to the new Nissan Titan, this is not close, as a ceiling of a mere 9,740 pounds for towing is dramatically less than what Ford can do.
  • The 2018 Ford F-150 truck offers innovative and exclusive towing-assist features that are nowhere to be found on any other competing half-ton truck, such as the excellent Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ system, a helpful remote tailgate release, an integrated tailgate step with lift assist and clever deployable box side steps.

Horsepower & Hauling

  • If you have a great deal of heavy-duty hauling to do, then you will be very satisfied with the best-in-class payload rating the F-150 delivers. Ram, Chevrolet and Nissan can only dream of having such desirable bragging rights like these.
  • The 2018 F-150 possesses an impressive maximum of 450 horsepower, while the Ram 1500 hits its ceiling at only 395 horsepower.
  • Taking a look at Chevrolet, the new Silverado 1500 truck maxes out 420 horsepower, which is admirable but still notably less than its Ford counterpart.
  • And now regarding the Nissan Titan, again it is a similar story, as 390 horsepower again fails to match the F-150's outstanding maximum levels of rugged power.

More Key Distinguishers to Consider


Besides power, we know that truck shoppers in Auburn, Lewiston, Poland, Sabuttus, Oxford and beyond surely are seeking a model with a fair price, fantastic durability, seamless technology, great efficiency and a desirable plethora of awards. The 2018 Ford F-150 delivers in this sense too!

  • Starting price for the 2018 F-150 begins at a competitive $27,610. The 2018 Ram 1500 is cheaper with a price of $27,095, but only slightly. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 has an MSRP at a more expensive $28,285, while the 2017 Nissan Titan is even costlier with a price tag of $29,580.
  • Ford utilizes a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body construction for the new F-150. This has been proven to be substantially stronger, lighter and also less susceptible to punctures than conventional steel beds.
  • Drivers find the well-established SYNC®3 infotainment system by Ford with comprehensive smartphone connectivity to be noticeably more user-friendly and intuitive than competing systems of the Ram 1500, Silverado 1500 and the Titan.
  • The 2018 F-150 offers a smooth, responsive and fuel-efficient 10-speed automatic transmission that is yet another segment-exclusive for Ford.
  • Let's talk awards, because Ford has a knack for winning those. The new Ford F-150 was officially named the 2018 Truck of the Year® by Motor Trend, received the 2018 Best Buy Award from Kelley Blue Book®, and also won the 2018 Truck of Texas Award at the Texas Auto Writers Association! Ram, Chevy and Nissan were unable to hold an edge over Ford in this regard as well.
