These are a couple of the top trucks available on the market in 2018, as they share a number of similar qualities. This causes selecting either a 2018 Ford F-150 XL SuperCrew or a 2018 Ram 1500 Express Crew Cab to be a tough task. Let the staff here at Cooper Ford help figure out which of these two models fits your lifestyle better. Assisting you throughout the car buying process is always our principal goal, and we are aware of how essential the research stage is to purchasing that new vehicle.


When you're checking out what is beneath the hood of each one of these vehicles, you'll see that the 2018 Ford F-150 XL SuperCrew holds an advantage over the 2018 Ram 1500 Express Crew Cab. The engine of this F-150 is a V8 that is matched with a versatile 10-speed transmission, but the engine of the 1500 is a V6 paired to an 8-speed transmission. The engine of the 2018 Ford F-150 XL has a displacement of 5.0 I while the displacement of the engine within the 2018 Ram 1500 Express is 3.6 I. Each one of the fuel tanks hold 26 gallons of gasoline, perfect for those jobs where long drives are required. The fuel capacity might be the exact same, but it seems as if the F-150 XL has a slight leg up when you're talking about performance.

The 2018 Ford F-150 XL SuperCrew possesses 395 horsepower at 5,750 RPM while the 2018 Ram 1500 Express Crew Cab maxes out at 305 horsepower when you hit 6,400 RPM. This F-150 brings you 400 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,500 RPM but this Ram 1500 tops out at 269 lb.-ft. Another key part of purchasing that new truck is figuring out what kinds of features this model possesses. For example, the 2018 Ford F-150 XL has an optional navigation feature, which is unavailable in this trim level of the Ram 1500. If you need a truck with more length, know that the length of the Ram 1500 is 229 inches, while the F-150 is slightly bigger at 243.7 inches.
