2017 Ram 1500 Vs. 2017 Ford F-150 Lampasas, TX


Come by Benny Boyd Lampasas to compare the powerful 2017 Ram 1500 versus the 2017 Ford F-150. The Ram 1500 is equipped with some of the most advanced safety and security technology available. With dynamic crumple zones, side-impact door beams and an advanced airbag system, your Ram truck is engineered to help protect your most precious cargo. These brakes feature large braking components to help prevent wheel lockup during instances when you may suddenly have to brake on a slick surface such as ice. Best of all, they come standard on all Ram 1500 trucks. The Ram 1500 features Electronic Stability Control—a sophisticated system that helps the driver stay in control under adverse conditions. This feature includes Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control, Rain Brake Support, Brake Assist and Ready Alert Braking. With a simple click of your key fob, the available Class-Exclusive AllSecure Central Locking System engages your vehicle’s theft deterrent system to help protect your entire vehicle. The system even protects the contents of the available RamBox Cargo Management System. The Park Sense Front Park Assist system uses six sensors located on the front bumper to send out ultrasonic waves when the vehicle is driven forward at low speeds. Readouts and audible chimes help notify the driver of front object proximity.  

Performance. Efficiency. Intelligence. That’s strength evolved. And nowhere is it more evident than with the legendary towing and hauling capability of the Ram 1500. Smart engineering such as the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension or our standard Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite 8 eight-speed automatic transmission means there isn’t much the Ram 1500 can’t do. A heavy load can make it hard to get moving forward. Hill Start Assist detects when your truck is on an incline. The system maintains brake pressure as you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator, so your truck won’t roll backwards. Ram trucks are equipped with an integrated trailer hitch that seamlessly connects the truck frame to your trailer, helping to provide a safe and secure connection. Our trucks also feature a four- and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness and connectors with convenient bumper integration. 

When compared to the 2017 Ram 1500, the 2017 Ford F-150 falls short. The 2017 Ford F-150 offers available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. And it also includes the added assurance of blind spot coverage for the trailer you’re towing. BLIS signals you in the outside mirror when it detects a vehicle traveling in a vehicle or trailer blind spot. The cross-traffic alert feature can detect a vehicle passing behind when you’re slowly backing out of a driveway or parking space. Upgrade to available SYNC 3. Enjoy all of the standard SYNC features plus new hardware, new software, and a new easy-to-use design. SYNC 3 offers high-speed performance, enhanced voice recognition,   a capacitive touchscreen with swipe capability, available navigation with easy destination entry and pinch-to-zoom functionality, Siri seamless integration,   and automatic updates over Wi-Fi. With a SYNC Connect-equipped vehicle, you can use FordPass to track your vehicle’s location and remotely access vehicle features such as start, lock and unlock and vehicle status including fuel level and approximate mileage. You can also schedule specific times to remotely start your vehicle so it’s ready to hit the road as soon as you are.
