Engine Options Comparison

There are four engine options for the Ram 1500 in 2021, starting with the base 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 with an output of 302 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Next up is the 5.7-litre HEMI V8, producing 410 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. Both the 3.6-litre V6 and the 5.7-litre V8 can be paired with an eTorque mild hybrid system to boost output and capabilities. As the only diesel, the 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 has 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the top-of-the-line TRX model gets a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8, which delivers 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

The F-150 has six engine options available, which are the following:

  • 3.3-litre Ti-VCT: 290 Horsepower/265 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6: 325 Horsepower/400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.0-litre PowerStroke: 250 Horsepower/440 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.5-litre EcoBoost: 400 Horsepower/500 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.5-litre PowerBoost: 430 Horsepower/570 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.0-litre Ti-VCT V8: 400 Horsepower/410 lb-ft of torque.

When comparing the options for both, the Ram 1500 has a more potent base engine, better diesel option, and a more powerful V8 engine. Although the F-150's hybrid Powerboost engine seems to be good in terms of figures, it lacks towing capabilities.

With the most powerful engine in the lineup, the 3.5-litre PowerBoost, the F-150 only has a maximum towing capacity of 12,700 pounds, slightly less than the Ram 1500's engine.
