Though the Ram 1500 has made improvements for the new model year, the 2019 F-150 still comes out on top with 450 pounds of extra towing capacity. That is enough for two extra dirt bikes on the trailer.

When it comes to payload, these two trucks are pretty equal, but the Ford F-150 still manages to provide more capability with a total payload capacity of 2,309 pounds. What is more, the F-150 even has cool features like an available Pro Trailer Backup Assist system.

The Ram 1500 tried to make a big deal with its new engine lineup. In all, it offers two V8 engines and one V6, with the top V8 providing 395 horsepower. The F-150 offers six engine options with four V6 engines, one V8 engine, and a Powerstroke diesel engine option.

On top of that, its high-output 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine options blows the Ram 1500 out of the water with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.

In comparing the performance off-road models for these trucks, the Raptor clearly comes out on top. The Rebel feels like an afterthought, outside of some aggressive styling elements and a few extra features, it barely earns the title of an off-road vehicle.

The Raptor, on the other hand, includes the high output engine, state-of-the-art Fox live shocks, trail control, all-terrain tires, skid plating, and more all to conquer any trail.
