Are you debating between buying the 2021 RAM 1500 Big Horn or the 2021 Ford F-150 XLT? Both the Ford and RAM truck lines have many trim levels to choose from, and these two options are closely matched in pricing.

When you compare the 2021 RAM 1500 Big Horn to the Ford F-150 XLT, you will immediately notice differences in style. The Big Horn has RAM’s signature hood, which is expressively molded to show off the truck’s strength. This RAM truck also has chrome accents on the front bumper and around the grille. The prominent headlights and the deep curvature on the sides add further personality to the truck. On the F-150 XLT, you will find primarily flat surfaces on the hood and sides. A minor chrome accent surrounds the grille, and the headlights stand vertically.
