In the competition between the 2021 Ram 1500 Tradesman versus the 2021 Ford F-150 XL, there is a clear winner.

The Ram 1500 Tradesman offers plenty of conveniences including heated/power-adjustable side mirrors on the outside. Also, full power accessories include the door locks and the one-touch windows. Meanwhile, advanced technology that you will find on the inside includes push-button start along with Uconnect 3 and Bluetooth. You can sync your mobile device and listen to your personal playlist via the 6-speaker stereo on your way to work.

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 XL comes with manually adjustable side mirrors and windows. Having to position these components by hand is unnecessary and time-consuming.

Both trucks offer easy-to-clean vinyl upholstery and rubber flooring. They also each have a 7-pin wiring harness to connect an attachment. This ensures that electricity will flow to the trailer’s brakes and lighting system so that you are always street legal.

That’s the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. Compared to other trucks in the same class - such as the 2021 Ford F-150 - it clearly produces more power and has better capabilities.

Growling under the hood of the TRX (pronounced like “T-Rex”) is a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine. Pumping out an astonishing 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, this beast offers a mind-numbing performance. Equipped with 35-inch all-terrain tires, underbody skid plates, a 2-inch suspension lift, and adaptive dampers with remote reservoirs from Bilstein, nature is no match for this hardy ride.

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 doesn’t even have a trim level in the most recent production run that can stand up to the Ram 1500 TRX. However, its best motor is the 5.0-litre V8. Generating only 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, it misses the mark entirely when pitted against the TRX.

If you are searching for the best light-duty pickup with a diesel motor, then keep reading!

The Ram 1500 can be equipped with the turbocharged 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6. Generating 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque (best-in-class), this engine is coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission with an E-shifter. It also is partnered only with the 4x4 drivetrain for optimized performance off-road and while pulling a trailer.

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 can be fitted with a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 as well. The catch is in the numbers. It only makes around 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Geared with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, it just doesn’t give off enough strength to beat the Ram 1500.

Now let’s look at the towing capacities. The Ram can haul up to 5,697 kg (12,560 lbs), and the Ford can only handle 4,762 kg (10,500 lbs).

However, the V6 is the standard motor that you will find across the board. When comparing the 2021 Ram 1500 to competitors such as the 2021 Ford F-150, you can easily see which model offers more strength.

Using a 3.6-litre V6 from Pentastar, the Ram 1500 makes 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the exclusive eTorque mild hybrid system, it offers smooth ignition and improved fuel economy. In fact, you can expect to get around 11.9L/100 km (24 mpg) in the city and 9.4L/100 km (30 mpg) on the highway. As for towing, this beast can haul up to 3,506 kg (7,730 lbs) without breaking a sweat.

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 comes with a slightly smaller 3.3-litre V6 on the base. Producing 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, it is clearly the weaker vehicle. Coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission, it gets 13.1 L/100 km (18 mpg) in the city and 9.8 L/100 km (24 mpg) on the highway. That is significantly lower than the Ram 1500.
