<a href="https://oconnorchrysler.com/inventory/details/1251/new-2022-ram-1500-big+horn-1C6RRFFGXNN311473"><img src="https://oconnorchrysler.com/images/upload/February_2022/Competitor_Comparisons/2022_Ram_1500_V6_VsFordF150.jpg"alt="Black 2022 Ram 1500 towing a boat near a lake, with trees in the background”/></a>If you are searching for a light-duty pickup that offers a superior V6 performance, then you need to turn your attention to the 2022 Ram 1500 lineup. Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150, it delivers more power when you need it the most. Plus, you can snatch up one of these trucks at O’Connor Chrysler in BC today!
 

Rumbling under the hood of the new Ram is a 3.6-litre V6 designed by Pentastar. As Canada’s most popular motor, it is coupled with eTorque mild hybrid technology to generate 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque (with 90 lb-ft of additional launch torque also offered to enhance performance). Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it can tow up to 3,496 kg (7,710 lbs) effortlessly.
 

Meanwhile, the new Ford F-150 uses a meek 3.3-litre V6 that produces 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, it can pull up to 2,268 kg (5,000 lbs) which proves considerably less than the Ram. Its overall output and capabilities are weaker, making it less useful for the work-site.

<a href="https://oconnorchrysler.com/inventory/details/1074/new-2022-ram-1500-limited+longhorn-1C6SRFKT5NN215111"><img src="https://oconnorchrysler.com/images/upload/February_2022/Competitor_Comparisons/2022_Ram_1500_Suspension_VsFordF150.jpg"alt="2022 Ram 1500 in dark grey diving on a remote highway with trees in the background”/></a>When it comes to comfort level, no other pickup does it quite like the new 2022 Ram 1500. Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150, it offers more customization to suit whatever driving conditions are present at the moment. Available at O’Connor Chrysler, you can get your hands on one of these trucks today!
 

The Ram 1500 can be equipped with the Active-Level Corner Air Suspension, which automatically (or manually) adjusts the ride height through five different settings. Normal is positioned at 221 mm, while Aero lowers the vehicle by 15 mm to improve the fuel efficiency by one percent at higher speeds. Next, Off-Road 1 raises the truck by 25 mm to enable you to clear obstacles easily. If you come up to a jagged rock formation, you also have the option to use Off-Road 2 (which lifts the Ram by 51 mm). Finally, Entry/Exit Mode sinks the chassis by 51 mm to allow passengers to get in and out without difficulty.
 

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 has an independent front suspension that features a double-wishbone configuration, along with a coil-over-shock design and a stamped lower control arm. The rear unit is a leaf spring with a solid axle. It doesn’t have any customization to accommodate for various terrain and this can result in a less comfortable ride.

Visit O'Connor Chrysler today to learn more.
 

The Rambox Cargo Management System is a signature element for this segment-defining lineup. It adds a series of lockable compartments to the truck’s rear bed for more organized storage. These sections are lit with LED bulbs so that you can see what’s inside each one at night. They also can be washed out if you have to stash muddy boots inside, and the integrated drains allow the water to flow out easily. You can securely travel with tools and gear (such as fishing poles) without any issue. There is also a 115-volt power outlet to hook up other accessories while you are on the job site or off on a camping adventure.
 

Meanwhile, the Ford F-150 does not have this option. It simply offers a conventional bed for its standard trims. You will have to add third-party pieces to the box if you want to customize it in any way.

Compared to the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, it outperforms every time in terms of hauling capability.
 

The available 3.0-litre EcoDiesel Inline-6 engine can be fitted on the 2022 Ram 1500 Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trim levels. Pumping out 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque, it is paired with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. The maximum towing limit is capped at 5,696 kg (12,560 lbs) on the truck with the 4x2 drivetrain. Meanwhile, the 4x4 version can manage an attachment weighing up to 4,472 kg (9,860 lbs) with ease.
 

On the other hand, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can be equipped with the 3.0-litre TurboDiesel Inline-6 motor. Delivering only 460 lb-ft of torque, this truck has a hauling limit set at 4,309 kg (9,500 lbs) - which will leave BC drivers struggling to accommodate their cargo.

Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150 models, there is a clear winner here. Plus, you can take one home today after a quick visit with our team at O’Connor Chrysler in BC.
 

The Ram 1500 can be fitted with the magnanimous 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6. Available on the Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trims, it uses a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission and your choice of a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain. Generating 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque, it offers everything you need for the best alternative energy performance. The 4x2 model can tow up to 5,696 kg (12,560 lbs), and the 4x4 version can handle up to 4,472 kg (9,860 lbs) with no problem.
 

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 is no longer available with a diesel motor. Previous production runs had a 3.0-litre option, but it has been eliminated. The current engine selection now includes most V6 engines, which can be alienating for drivers who prefer diesel.
 

Contact our team of agents to give the Ram 1500 a try in person or ask about our inventory!

<a href="https://oconnorchrysler.com/inventory?newUsed=New&make=RAM&model=1500"><img src="https://oconnorchrysler.com/images/upload/January_2022/Competitor_Comparison/2022_Ram_1500_Uconnect5NAV.jpg"alt="2022 Ram 1500 interior with Uconnect 5 NAV”/></a>If you are thinking about buying a full-size, light-duty truck, then you may want to compare more than just the performance of the models. Infotainment is important too, and the 2022 Ram 1500 offers the fastest operating system on the market today. Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150, you can easily see which mechanism is superior.
 

The Ram 1500 is available with Uconnect 5 NAV. Depending on the trim level, it will be displayed on either an 8.4-inch touchscreen or a massive 12-inch one. With this interface, you can sync two mobile devices via Bluetooth at the same time. You can even create five unique user profiles for different drivers. This enables you to save setting preferences for the seat/mirror positions, music, climate, and so much more. You can also easily switch between profiles with the push of a single button. With 64GB of flash memory and an operating speed that is five times faster than previous versions, you will love getting inside this truck!
 

On the other hand, the Ford F-150 comes with Sync 4 and either an 8- or 12-inch touchscreen depending on the model. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included, but they are not wireless as they are with the Ram. This system also isn’t as fast, nor does it enable as many user profiles.

Even the 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor doesn’t stand a chance against this beast. Headed to O’Connor Chrysler in BC, you can reserve one of these trucks today!
 

First, the Ford F-150 Raptor uses a set of 17-inch alloy wheels paired with 35-inch all-terrain tires. The off-roading suspension and adaptive Fox shocks provide adequate handling off the beaten path, and the grille/fender flares have been revised. As for the turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 engine, it delivers 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
 

On the other hand, the Ram 1500 TRX rolls on slightly larger 18-inch aluminum wheels with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory all-terrain tires. It boasts active performance shock absorbers in the front and back as well as a multilink coil spring suspension, the ELocker electronic-locking rear differential, and the class-exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension. The 6.2-litre supercharged V8 churns out 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, and the sculpted hood comes with an air scoop and heat extractor.

Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150 XL, it has a lot more to offer. Plus, you can find one at O’Connor Chrysler in BC now!
 

First, the Ford F-150 XL rides on small 17-inch steel wheels. The side mirrors are manually adjustable, and the windows are old-school crank style.
 

On the other hand, the Ram 1500 Tradesman rolls on larger 18-inch steel wheels. The side mirrors are heated to prevent the buildup of ice in the winter, and they come with power-adjustability for your convenience. They can even be manually folded in to make parking on the street easier. Also, the automatic windows come with one-touch capability - which is something rarely seen on an entry-level trim.
 

Outside features that both vehicles have include the 7-pin wiring harness to transmit electricity to the lighting and braking systems of a trailer or attachment.

However, they do each still offer turbo and supercharged motors that produce more power than ever before. But which one is best?
 

The Chevy can be fitted with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, it provides solid performance on the highway.
 

However, the Ram 1500 can do much better with its available 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8. Equipped on the TRX trim level only, this monstrous motor churns out 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque - making it the most robust truck in its class. Using a full-time 4x4 drivetrain system and an 8-speed automatic transmission and manual control, it is built for off-roading, agility, and speed. It even has six selectable modes to choose from depending on the road and weather conditions. In other words, this vehicle can go where others can’t, and it can get there much faster too!

Compared to the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, this truck offers more horsepower than its competitor.
 

First, let’s take a peek under the hood of the Silverado 1500. The newest lineup no longer offers a V6 option like the Ram, so we have to jump to the 5.3-litre V8 to check out the specs. Pushing out 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, it uses a 10-speed automatic transmission and your choice of RWD or 4WD.
 

On the other hand, the magnanimous Ram 1500 can be fitted with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that delivers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trim levels, it is also eligible for the eTorque mild hybrid system. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, you can enjoy a maximum towing capacity of 5,783 (12,750 lbs).
