Though the 2018 Ford F-350 and 2018 RAM 3500 are both built with high-strength frames that form the basis to their construction, the aluminum-alloy materials used in the 2018 F-350 leave it much lighter than its RAM counterpart, but still able to tow and haul much greater amounts. That’s not even mentioning the Power Stroke® Diesel engine available with the F-350, which offers the highest amount of torque on the heavy-duty pickup market. Plus, with an AdvanceTrac® system (with Roll Stability Control®) the F-350 does a much better job at keeping you moving forward with everything you need in tow - that’s something that the RAM 3500 simply can’t match.
