28 Reasons Why the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn is Better than the Ford F-150 XLT

December 7th, 2018 by

The 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn with the Level 2 Equipment Group and a Hemi V8 has a lot to offer over the Ford F-150 XLT V8 equipped with the 302A and Sport Appearance Packages.


If we take both models, both short boxes, both V8, both extremely matched with like equipment,

there are a solid 28 reasons more to love the 2019 Ram Big Horn.


First off, the Ram comes out with a lower MSRP than the Ford F-150 with these build configurations

for both 4×2 and 4×4 drive-trains ($44,780 v. $45,595 and $48, 280 v. $49,090 respectively). So, that’s win #1.


More standard torque, rotary shifter (because that’s just cool, period), grille shutters, and

Active grill dam are all standard on the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn. The grille shutters and  active air dam are very specifically

designed features to boost the aerodynamics of the workhorse truck by reducing drag coefficient

by moving it away from the suspension and under body components. Like, what!!

More performance advantages that the 19’ Ram 1500 Big Horn over the Ford F-150 include larger brake rotors, brake assist,

coil spring (versus the F-150’s leaf spring) rear suspension, and a tire fill alert.

…………………..(make believe drum roll)……………..



The big standout? You know you were waiting for me to mention towing capacity. 

The 2019 Ram Big Horn has a greater maximum V8 towing capacity over the Ford!





The rest of the big time advantages that you get with the Big Horn combined with the Level 2 Equipment Group and the Sport Appearance Package include:

-Optional Ram Box Cargo management system with the crew cab

-Push button start

-Deluxe sound insulation

-Larger driver information display

-Dual zone ATC (so, no fights over temperature)
