THE 2016 FORD F-150 VS. THE 2016 RAM 1500
For more than 50 years the Ford F-150 has been Canada’s best-selling pickup, but that doesn’t mean the competition hasn’t tried to take that crown. The latest contender is the 2016 RAM 1500, a full-sized pickup that’s brimming with technology and is ready to take on Ford’s aluminum-bodied champion.
So how do these two heavyweight contenders stack up? Jerry Ford breaks it down so that customers across Edson, Whitecourt, Grande Cache, Jasper, and Hinton can make the best decision.

Both of these pickups put up a good fight, and neither can truly be called a ‘loser’. However, the stats show a marked difference between the two, and the 2016 Ford F-150 repeatedly comes out on top. Better tow ratings, more engine options, and more advanced technology results in a more capable half-ton pickup truck, and the 2016 Ford F-150 is that truck.
