There is a truck, there is a truck. And if you want a pickup truck that's ridiculous in terms of power,  ...

performance, and off-road capabilities, there's no hotter pairing than the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX.

Now let's see how these bad guys carry on paper after the debut of the Raptor R with the new V8 engine on Monday.

Is one truck clearly better than the other, or can these competitors hang side by side?

Engine and performance Its engine is the main difference between the Raptor R and the standard F-150 Raptor. 

Instead of using a 3.5-liter V6 with a twin turbocharger, the Raptor R is powered by a supercharged V8 engine. 

This is a far more formidable opponent for the TRX, which also boasts mega V8 power.

Off-road geometry Given the size and power of these tracks, you probably won't use them to tackle the very technical sections of tight trails.

But when it comes to hitting rocks and dunes, both Ford and Lamb are on the road to success, but Raptor has an entirely clear advantage here.

Dimensions Calling these pickups out loud is an understatement. They are huge in all dimensions — so wide that it is legally required to have a central amber marker light.

However, as you can see, the dimensions are quite close. No track in this category actually outperforms any other track.

Truck stuff You can't talk about pickups without discussing the possibilities of pickups.

Payload is the load that a truck can carry on a bed, and towing is the weight that a trailer can tow. Ford has a slight advantage in both categories.
