2018 Ford Raptor Comparison

Prospective drivers from Palm Coast and Green Cove Springs in search of an off-road capable pickup like the 2018 Ford Raptor may know that competition is their beating heart. They also may be there are more choices on the market than ever. But among the loyal packs of American truck owners, sometimes it's more about finding the right fit than the one that's the best at everything, and where the 2018 Raptor certainly fits the bill there, there are other formidable contenders.


2018 Ford Raptor vs. the RAM Rebel

One frequent contest between off-road trucks is the comparison of Ford Raptor vs. RAM Rebel. Both are based off formidable, award-winning half-ton trucks (the F-150 and 1500), but equipped with hardware designed to make short work of any unbeaten path you're like to find in Gainesville, St. Augustine and beyond! But where the latest Raptor is a devil undisguised--and a class leader, to boot--that doesn't count out what the Rebel brings to the contest.

  • Two Missions. Both Raptor and Rebel are outfitted for the back-road, and certainly look the part with their unique grilles with their respective automaker's names emblazoned, lower body cladding, and massive wheels. The details are where they diverge, however--and it becomes clear the Ford's Baja-bred abilities make it far more capable. For example, the off-road rated frame on the Raptor enable it to jump over sand dunes, where the Rebel makes for a fun and wild trail mate.
  • Twin-Turbo V6 vs. HEMI V8. On the power spectrum, the closest alignment between Ford and RAM Truck is between the high-output 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 on the former, and the HEMI V8 on the latter. Where the Rebel's 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque rating is formidable, the Raptor's 450 and 510 of the same make it nigh-unstoppable in acceleration and overall grunt. Plus, it comes with a standard Terrain Management System with configurable driving modes to make the most of that power.
  • Off-Road Breed. The difference of mission previously discussed does create a nearly $10k price chasm in the Rebel's favor, but based on your specific ambitions, the Raptor could still be a common-sense pick. Once more, the devil is in the details. Some may not have confidence in the RAM's adaptive air suspension for trail duty, but enjoy its comforts on-road. On the other hand, the FOX Racing Shox splits the difference and come standard on the Raptor.

In the end, however, it all comes down to the kind of driving--and your tastes in such things--that will be the ultimate decider!
