Ford F-150 vs Dodge Ram 1500 – Towing Tested by RamZone

Most truck buyers want great towing capacity in their truck. To compare towing pound for pound Dodge Ram Engineers put the Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie against Ford F-150 Lariat by creating a gross combined weight trailer towing test of 15,500 lbs – on actual roads – at wide open throttle.

Check out the video below.


Are there some flaws in the test? You decide. But I would like to see Ford Engineers create their own test to explain the differences. Then again, maybe they can’t explain this.
