2017 Ram 1500 Rebel vs 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
This model year has been a huge one for off-roading trucks. In the Ram brands, the heavy-duty Power Wagon hit the roads to offer even more power on or off the road, while the Ram Rebel also picked up some new, high-value standard features. However, other brands haven't been standing still. We're going to look at the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel vs the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor to see which of these full-size, light-duty models might best suit the needs of individual drivers.
Both of these trucks are designed to go where other trucks would be terrified to tread. Four-wheel drive is standard on the Ford and available on the Ram. Both come equipped with elite shocks and responsive differentials which allow them to tackle more challenging territory. Rocks, rivers, trees, and other off-road terrain cannot intimidate either the 2017 Ram Rebel or the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. While the Raptor is designed for exotic performance driving and challenges like desert racing, the 2017 Ram Rebel is engineered to unite practical comfort and performance features for a satisfying all-round truck.

2017 Ram 1500 Rebel Air Suspension
Another advantage that the Rebel brings to the table in this 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel vs 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comparison is its standard air suspension system. The 2017 Ford Raptor is designed to run (or jump) over obstacles, and its suspension is optimized for off-roading.

This suspension offers an extremely smooth driving experience, and four selectable ride heights. It will automatically drop to the lowest option to minimize wind resistance when hitting highway speeds.
The 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel also comes standard with remote start, heated mirrors, LED taillights, automatic dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, and parking assistance.
