2020 Ram 3500 vs 2020 Ford F-350
Comfortable, civilized and savagely capable – the Ram 3500 has long been the epitome of work trucks. But the Ram pickup isn’t the only major player in town. The Ford F-350 is another popular choice among three-quarter-ton trucks. After receiving a round of updates this year, we’re excited to see how the F-350 ups its game. See where the advantages lie in our comparison of the 2020 Ram 3500 versus the 2020 Ford F-350.
Research shows the standard 6.4-liter V8 engine of the 2020 Ram 3500 overpowers the 2020 Ford F-350 and its 6.2-liter V8 by an impressive margin. The V8 pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission and features cylinder deactivation to help cut fuel waste during light use.

What’s the Best Heavy-Duty Truck for Drivers in the Twin Cities Area?
Drivers that go the 2020 Ram 3500 route can also choose between a 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine (370 hp, 850 lb-ft) or the legendary High Output 6.7-liter turbodiesel (400 horsepower, 1,000 lb-ft of torque). Both engine upgrades link to a special 6-speed automatic transmission. And while comfort often takes the backseat in heavy duty discussions, there’s no escaping the inevitable truth that a posh cabin is important when you’re sitting behind the wheel for hours on end. While many work trucks like the F-350 take the utilitarian route, the 2020 Ram 3500 offers a selection of accommodating interiors that serve as an oasis between stops.
Ram Power Wagon vs Ford Tremor
The 2020 Ram Power Wagon has long been the uncontested king of heavy duty off-roaders, but competition is here with the new 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor. If you’re looking for the best, the Power Wagon still takes gold. Both trucks have off-road-friendly solid axles at both ends, but only the Power Wagon has fully locking differentials on both ends. The Tremor has a locking rear differential, but the front end gets a limited-slip differential.
