See How The Ram Chassis Cab 3500, 4500, and 5500 Stack Up Versus The Ford Chassis Cab Competition!

When seeking a new truck, two makes inevitably rise to the forefront as worthy competitors: Ram and Ford. While Ford has dominated the domestic automotive market for decades, Ram humbly perfected their craft and began silently usurping the pickup truck icon. The latest generations of both the Ram and Ford chassis cabs provide unprecedented capability, durability, and innovation--however, due to Ram's redesign and careful attention to detail, the Ram 3500, 4500/ 5500 Chassis Cabs stand apart from the competition as wholly capable and expectation-exceeding vehicles.

Power, Performance, and Towing

Both vehicles, when properly equipped, offer powerful performance--however, Ram's commitment to integrating the latest in mechanical engineering results in superior capability. Both trucks offer an available turbocharged diesel engine--the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel for the Ram Chassis Cab produces 930 pound-feet and 410 horsepower, and 6.7-liter 4 valve Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V8 engine for the Ford Super Duty Series producing 330 horsepower and 750 pound-feet. The Ram chassis cabs offer towing capabilities starting at a maximum capacity of 19,280 pounds for the Ram 3500 chassis cab and a 31,000-pound GCWR, further amending its exceptional performance. Here's how the payload and towing capacities compare between the Ram 5500 Chassis Cab and the Ford F-550 Chassis Cab: Side-by-side list:

Ram 5500 Chassis Cab
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 29,600 Pounds
  • Maximum GVWR: 19,000 Pounds (optional)
  • Maximum Payload: 11,110 Pounds
Ford F-550
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 18,500 Pounds
  • Maximum GVWR: 19,500 Pounds
  • Maximum Payload: 12,730 Pounds

Technology, Safety, and Available Models

Paired with Power Take Off capabilities and optimized for ease of upfitting through streamlining frame rails and simplifying modification, the Ram Chassis Cab delivers superior upgradability both from the factory and through upfitting. For technology and safety, here's how the two compare:
