Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado: Battle for Pickup Truck Supremacy
Edmunds puts America's top-selling vehicles through the ringer. Testing the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 at the track, show differences between the interiors and even load a quad into each truck's bed. Edmunds drove them in the city, drove them on the highway, towed a big Airstream trailer, and spent hundreds of miles behind the wheel of all three trucks to see which one comes out on top. Will the top-rated Ram 1500, the best-selling Ford F-150, or will the all-new Chevy Silverado be the new champ?
Q: What's under the hood?
A: The Ram 1500 we used for this test has a 5.7-liter V8 (395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque). The F-150 we tested had Ford's 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 (375 hp, 470 lb-ft). The Chevy Silverado in our test came with the 5.3-liter V8 (355 hp, 383 lb-ft).
Q: Which truck is the quickest to 60 mph?
A: Of the three trucks we tested, the Ford F-150 was the quickest. It did the 0-60 mph sprint in just 6.2 seconds. The Ram 1500 was second with a time of 6.5 seconds, while the Silverado came in at 7.0 seconds. Notably, the Silverado was equipped with the 5.3-liter V8 rather than the range-topping 6.2-liter engine. In previous tests, a last-gen Silverado with the 6.2-liter was capable of hitting 60 mph in 6.4 seconds.
Q: Which one is the best truck? The Silverado, the Ram or the F-150?
A: In our test, we found that the Ram edged out the F-150 and the Silverado in almost every category. The interior quality, powertrain and comfort were all excellent. The Silverado and the F-150 still have a lot going for them, but if it were our money, we'd pick the Ram.
