V6 Battle: 2021 Ram 1500 Classic vs 2021 Ford F-150 in Chilliwack

May 24,2022

When it comes to light-duty performance, it is hard to beat the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic. Compared to the 2021 Ford F-150, you can clearly see which model reigns supreme on (and off) the beaten path. Plus, you'll find this truck on our dealership lot here at O'Connor Chrysler in BC.   Starting with the Ford F-150, the standard engine is a mild 3.3-litre V6. Pushing out 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, it proves lacking in power; and, though paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and your choice of RWD or 4WD, it's not ideal for adventures in the wild. It also gets 12.4 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 10.7 L/100 km (22 mpg) on the highway.   Meanwhile, the beastly Ram 1500 Classic is fitted with the larger 3.6-litre V6. Crafted by the fine engineers at Pentastar, it is the top-selling motor in the country. Thanks to the 8-speed automatic transmission and either a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain, it produces 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. It also has a higher fuel economy rated at 11.8 L/100 km (20 mpg) in the city and 9.4 L100 km (25 mpg) on the highway.   Contact our team today to learn more!
