Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram Competitor Comparisons In Langley BC
2020 ram 3500 limited premium trim on sale new westminster bcThe 2020 Ram 3500 Limited and 2020 Ford F-250 Limited, both premium pickups, offer a tech-heavy menu of features. The key to choosing the better option is finding the one that provides the most useful tools and the fewest gimmicks.

Because they get used every time you go anywhere, the driver controls are essential components in any vehicle. They are, therefore, the perfect place to start a comparison of these two high-end heavy-duty trucks.  

 
2020 Ram 3500 Limited
Pedals: Power adjustable with memory for multiple drivers
Instrument panel: Seven-inch screen
Steering wheel: Leather-wrapped with heating and wood accents

With its larger infotainment screen and tools like hands-free Bluetooth audio controls and an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the 2020 3500 Limited stands out for drivers who want a premium trim with tech that they will actually use. They will also appreciate the remote and corded USB charging options and rain-sensing windshield wipers, which are only available on this platform. Ram throws in some extras too - including a complimentary year of Sirius XM radio, which you can listen to on a nine-speaker Alpine sound system. 

If you would like to learn about the driver's controls for the 2020 Ram 3500 Limited or the options for the other four trim levels, contact our Langley dealership today. 
ram 3500 with safety features available in new westminster bcThe 2020 Ram 3500 and 2020 Ford F-250 have a full menu of features to protect the driver. However, these heavy-duty trucks often have passengers, so you need to trust that the systems will keep friends, employees, co-workers, or family members from harm during an accident. There is no room for gimmicks or untested tech when it comes to vehicle safety.

Here is what two mid-tier trims, the 2020 Ram 3500 Laramie and 2020 Ford F-250 Lariat, offer. 

 
2020 Ram 3500 Laramie
Airbags: Front driver and passenger multi-stage, front-seat-mounted, and side curtain airbags
Towing: Electronic trailer brake and sway control
Parking: Rearview camera and automated parking assist
Safety systems: Stability control and roll mitigation 

2020 Ford F-250 Lariat
Airbags: Front driver and passenger, seat-mounted, and side curtain airbags.
Towing: Trailer brake and sway control
Parking: Rearview camera
Safety systems: Roll stability control 

Both pickups have characteristics that protect against severe accidents involving a rollover or trailer issue. The 2020 Ram 3500 Laramie, however, earns additional points with rain brake support, an anti-spin differential rear axle, and hill start assist. These features keep you in control in the most challenging situations, while the truck's Class V hitch is rated to securely pull the heaviest loads that towing capacity allows. 

The Ram 3500 Laramie also boasts ParkSense assist and power-retractable 7 x 11-inch trailer mirrors to help you avoid those annoying fender benders, giving it the ultimate edge against the F-250. 

You can contact our dealership to learn more about the Laramie and other 2020 Ram 3500 trims. 
ram 3500 heavy duty truck for sale in new westminster bcThe 2020 Ram 3500 and 2020 Ford F-250 are the two primary heavy-duty pickup options for New Westminster truck shoppers. If you are in the market for this type of vehicle, engine performance likely matters a lot. Whether towing, hauling, or powering through less-than-ideal conditions, you will need enough muscle to get the job done. 

Here is how the Ram 3500 Tradesman and Ford-F-250 XL compare when you look under the hood. 

 
Ram 3500 Tradesman
Standard Engine: 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine with FuelSaver MDS
Horsepower: 410
Torque: 429 lb.-ft
Max RPM: 5,800

Ford F-250 XL
Standard Engine: 6.2L 2 Valve Gas SOHC EFI NA V8 (Flex-Fuel)
Horsepower: 385
Torque: 430 lb.-ft
Max RPM: 5,750

The Ram 3500 Tradesman’s HEMI V8 engine brings more HP than the F-250. The truck also comes with assets like Virtual Cam Timing (VCT), which provides consistent power regardless of torque requirements; while a Multi-Displacement System (MDS) lowers fuel consumption on the highway at cruising speed. In other words, you will get muscle when you need it, but won't burn excessive amounts of gas when you don't.   

How do these specs translate into real-world situations? The Ram 3500 with a V8 HEMI can haul up to 3,484 kg in its bed and pull a trailer weighing up to 8,260 kg.

ram 1500 for sale new westminster bc dealershipTechnology can add to a vehicle's entertainment offerings, but it can also improve safety. Comparing the usefulness of digital features can help New Westminster shoppers differentiate between close competitors like the 2020 Ram 1500 and 2020 Ford F-150.

Here is a look at which of the two aforementioned midsize pickups makes better use of computerized components.

Displays

The 2020 Ram 1500 features the Uconnect infotainment unit, which offers sound system controls, access to data, exterior camera views, and navigation. Depending on the trim level, the touchscreen display can be up to 12 inches.  

Ford is reportedly waiting until the 2021 model year to update its interface, so its screens currently remain smaller than Ram's. However, both vehicles have drivers-side LCDs that show vital information about vehicle systems. 

Safety

The 2020 Ram 1500 offers blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and 360-degree exterior picture. The trucks also have ParkSense auto parking assist. 

Ford's safety offerings include exterior images with up to four angles showing simultaneously. The F-150 also has front accident avoidance, a rearview camera, and lane-keeping assistant as part of its Co-Pilot 360. Some tech features are optional add-ons at lower trim levels. 

When you are ready to see the Ram 1500's embedded computer systems in action, contact our dealership to discuss a test drive or inquire about financing. 
ram 1500 fuel efficient truck for sale in new westminster bcEfficiency can affect the long-term cost of truck ownership. Gas use is especially critical for energy-intensive tasks like towing. Furthermore, if you utilize your vehicle for work, how long a litre of petrol lasts can significantly influence your bottom line. 

Two of the Lower Mainland's most popular pickups, the 2020 Ram 1500 and Ford F-150, have improved their performance in recent years. 

Here is how the two compare when it comes to fuel economy. 

Basic Models

The 2020 Ram 1500 features a 3.6L V6 engine with an eight-speed transmission on its 4x2 Tradesman and Big Horn trims. This powertrain averages 10.8 litres per 100 km, while the 4x4 version needs 11.1 L/100 KM.

In comparison, the Ford F-150's two base trucks, the XL and XLT, use 12.1 L/100 KM in city driving. 

Comparing Larger Motors

More powerful engines reduce fuel economy. That is the case with the Ram 1500's 5.7L V8 HEMI, which gets a combined 13.8 L/100 KM. This motor has an eTorque mild-hybrid variant that improves consumption to 12.8 L/100 KM with a 4x4 drivetrain.

Ford's 3.5L V6 EcoBoost gets 13.1 L/100 KM on the highway and 15.3 in the city. 

Despite the better efficiency, the Ram trucks have more strength and come out slightly ahead when it comes to towing capacity. 

Feel free to contact our dealership to learn more about how the Ram 1500 balances performance and fuel economy. 

 
ram 1500 truck for sale at new westminster dealershipFor truck shoppers in the Lower Mainland, the choice for a midsize pickup with towing capabilities is between the 2020 Ram 1500 and its main competitor, the Ford F-150. 

If you plan to use your vehicle for pulling trailers, it is essential to compare these two options. 

Here are the hauling-related factors to consider.

Power

The 2020 Ram 1500 has multiple engine choices. The 3.6L Pentastar V6 offers 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft of torque, but it uses the propriatary eTorque system to add 90 lb.-ft to that total.

The next Ram 1500 option is the 5.7L HEMI V8. It increases the performance figures to 395 hp and 410 lb.-ft and comes in an eTorque variant that adds 130 lb.-ft of launch capabilities.

The Ford F-150's powertrains are competitive. The 3.5L Ecoboost V6 produces 375 horsepower, and the 5.0L TI-VCT V8 gets 395 hp and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Both these, however, do not offer an eTorque equivalent. 

Towing

What do the engines of the 2020 Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 mean for towing performance? The 1500's max towing capacity is 5,783 kg. The Ford F-150 with 5.0L V8 can pull less at 5,261 kg. 

The other consideration is the eTorque hybrid system, which improves fuel economy and adds torque and horsepower that help the 1500 stand out above the F-150 when it comes to towing. 

If you'd like to try the HEMI and eTorque combination yourself, you can contact us for more information or to schedule a test drive.
