Whether it's to haul home improvement materials to the jobsite or tow the family camper, the half-ton, full-sized Ford F-150 is a capable and accommodating pickup truck that can handle anything you throw at it. One of the most popular vehicles in the Portland area, this impressive truck is available now at Tigard's Landmark Ford, and our sales team is standing by to give you more details and help you customize your favorite F-150 configuration.

The Ford F-150 and its strength and power are legendary. An icon and go-to model for generations of drivers, it stands tall as a fan favorite for people from Beaverton to Oregon City. But it's not the only truck in its class that may be vying for your attention, and we're here to help you understand why it's worthy of a closer look.

The Ford F-150 vs...

In a crowded marketplace of similar, full-sized trucks, the F-150 is a force to be reckoned with. It delivers a highly customizable ride that has more power, higher utility, and a greater number of personalization options than competing models. We explain further with comparisons against these well-known models:

...the Chevy Silverado 1500

  • Hybrid option. It's no secret that eco-conscious drivers throughout the Portland area prefer to shop for new vehicles that are efficient and have lower emissions. In the comparison of the Ford F-150 against the Chevy Silverado 1500, if you're looking for a hybrid powertrain on your new truck, the Ford is the only way to go. You can get the F-150 powered by a hybrid 430-horsepower, turbocharged V6 engine, which also delivers 570 pound-feet of torque. The Silverado 1500 has no hybrid alternative.
  • Fuel capacity and range. With a larger fuel tank underpinning every base-engine, gas-powered F-150 model, you can expect to go further on a tank of gas than you would with the Chevy Silverado 1500. The F-150 has a 26-gallon gas tank, while the Chevy Silverado 1500 has a 24-gallon tank. This helps the Ford travel up to 494 miles in the city and 624 miles on the highway, while the Chevy averages 456 miles city and 528 miles on the highway.
  • Power and performance. When you want a pickup truck that delivers over-the-top performance and off-road capabilities, the Ford F-150 easily tops the Chevy Silverado 1500. This is thanks in large part to the availability of the pulse-quickening Ford F-150 Raptor and Raptor R. The Raptor, powered by a turbo V6, produces 450 horsepower, and the Raptor R cranks up the excitement with a supercharged V8 that produces 700 horsepower. Meanwhile, top power output for the Silverado 1500 is a mere 420 horsepower.

...the Ram 1500

  • Electrified model. Looking for a groundbreaking and cutting-edge electric powertrain for your next pickup truck purchase? The Ford F-150 Lightning is the way to go. The first EV truck from our favorite carmaker, it delivers the smooth and efficient power our customers are looking for, with all of the features they love. The F-150 Lightning is also exclusive to the Ford lineup, and you won't find a similar Ram EV truck anywhere in that lineup.
  • Cab styles. When the time comes to personalize your truck and select the best style for your needs, the Ford F-150 presents a greater range of choices, including a four-door crew cab, two-door regular cab, and four-door extended cab. Meanwhile, the Ram 1500 has just two cab options, with no two-door style available.
  • Safety features. When drivers select the Ford F-150, they can expect a vehicle that comes equipped with many advanced safety features standard, such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning. But with the Ram 1500, these features are not listed as standard safety equipment. In fact, you'd have to move up in trims and spend more money to get them.
