Compare Ford Trucks vs Ram Trucks

What are the differences between Ford trucks and Ram trucks?

As one of the premier used diesel truck dealers serving the greater Orlando, Tampa, and Daytona, FL areas, this is a question we get asked quite often. The fact of the matter is that most folks in this part of the country have a particular allegiance to one truck brand or another, but when it comes down to the real differences between brands, a lot of folks are aloof to the details. Luckily, whether you choose a Ram truck or a Ford truck here at our Sanford, FL dealership, you can rest assured you're driving some of the most outstanding pickups on the road today.

Overview of Ford Trucks

Our new and used Ford trucks come in various models and trim packages, making it easy for Orlando drivers to design the perfect truck. Choose from the Ford Ranger, Ford F-150, and Ford Super Duty trucks. If you want to find a good truck for everyday driving, consider a Ford Ranger. The Ranger offers Super Cab and SuperCrew® configurations and three trim levels. If you require more power or versatility, look at our new and pre-owned F-150 and Super Duty models. Whether you go with the F-150, Ford F-250, F-350, or F-450 trucks, you will have ample power for your Lake Mary hauls with our Ford diesel trucks.

Do you want to drive a full hybrid truck? Consider a used Ford F-150 equipped with a PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6. This powertrain includes a class-exclusive engine with generous performance specifications for your Jacksonville travels. We can help you find your next lifted Ford truck in our inventory. Whether you opt for a standard truck or go with a lifted Ford truck, you can't go wrong with purchasing a pickup from Gibson Truck World.

Overview of Ram Trucks

Ram trucks offer Daytona drivers optimal power, whether you travel on the highway or hit unpaved trails. We regularly carry Ram pickups in various styles and color options. You can opt for the standard Ram 1500 if you want reliable performance and up to 12,750 pounds of towing capacity. If you need more capability, consider taking home one of the Ram 2500 or Ram 3500 trucks. The generous Quad Cab and Crew Cab styles in the Ram lineup enable you to travel around Sanford in style, whether you bring along the family or your work crew. Explore our new and used Ram truck inventory, and consider letting our team customize a Ram truck for you.

Our Ram trucks feature a bold range of engine options that help you maximize any haul. You can regularly find a truck fitted with a Cummins® turbo diesel or HEMI® V8 engine in our Ram diesel inventory. What makes these two engine styles stand out? Some of our Ram trucks offer best-in-class diesel torque, diesel towing, and horsepower. If you seek power and capability, a Ram truck makes an excellent option.

What is the Difference Between Ford and Ram?

Ford built all its trucks with toughness in mind. You'll get lots of great interior technology at a great price, compared to Ram trucks that boast more off-road and rugged features. Trucks connected with FordPass™ let you earn points that you can use toward rewards or complimentary maintenance items. Additionally, Ford trucks fitted with the new Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite give you unrivaled safety features. You can haul anything around Tampa with confidence, as the Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety features keep an eye on your surroundings and even step in to help you navigate challenging situations. Select Ford trucks now offer Pro Power Onboard, Max Recline Seats, and an available Interior Work Surface that let you stay connected and recharged, no matter where you navigate. You simply won't find these details in new Ram trucks.

All Ram trucks come designed with aerodynamic efficiency in mind. For example, the Ram 1500 features sleek body lines, active grille shutters, and an advanced tailgate design that improves your efficiency. Unlike the Ford truck lineup, our Ram trucks provide more upscale features and trim designs. Ford may excel in packaging safety features that help you keep an eye on your surroundings, but Ram delivers the ruggedness and durability you need for your most challenging hauls. You generally get better towing capacity with the Ram truck lineup, as well as features that deliver a smooth and confident drive over any terrain you encounter.

What are the advantages to buying a Ford pickup truck?

When it comes to pickup trucks, Ford has a reputation that precedes it. In fact, the Ford F-Series has been America's best-selling line of pickup trucks for the better part of half a century now, so there's a certain pedigree to the Ford pickup trucks for sale here at our showroom near Lake Mary.

However, in a practical sense, there is one key difference to note between our Ford pickup trucks and Ram trucks. Most recent Ford models in our inventory feature a high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy body mounted to a fully boxed steel frame. By and large, that means that they're lighter than the conventional steel-bodied Ram trucks we have for sale. Additionally, it makes Ford pickup trucks impervious to body rust in the long run, which helps cut down their overall cost of upkeep and ownership.

On top of that, Ford has some serious towing tech that makes its pickups stand out from the crowd. For example, many models in recent years come equipped with Pro Trailer Backup Assist, a class-exclusive technology that makes it easier than ever to maneuver with a trailer in tow.

What are the advantages of buying a Ram pickup truck?

Now, there's plenty of clear strengths to owning a new Ford truck, but there are just as many great reasons to make your next pickup truck a Ram truck.

For example, many drivers from Jacksonville, FL love the fact that our Ram pickup trucks are some of the brawniest used diesel pickup trucks on the market. In fact, models like the Ram 2500 can churn out up to 850 pound-feet of torque when properly equipped, and the Ram 3500 tops out at 1,000 pound-feet of diesel torque.

Plus, when it comes to managing large or ungainly payloads, many Ram trucks excel where other competitors lag behind. With the recently implemented multi-function tailgate on many Ram truck models like the Ram 1500, it's easy to access the rear of the cargo bed without stretching and straining.

On top of that, many recent Ram truck models feature the outstanding UConnect 12.0 NAV system, which features a largest-in-class touchscreen display with split-screen and pinch-to-zoom functionality. This makes it easier than ever to access your favorite apps, connectivity features, and navigation features while you're on the go in Tampa.
