Ram 1500 with RamBox® Cargo Management System

Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Space & Convenience

One of the top selling points for any truck is their ability to seamlessly transition from work to play. This is thanks in part to a wide range of convenience features, as well as tons of space to store all of your stuff.

Your gear, tools, and other equipment will have no problem fitting inside of Ram’s spacious truck bed, which features some impressive specs, such as an optional RamBox® Cargo Management System and available two-door Multifunction Tailgate. The Ford F-150 offers similar cargo upgrades as well.

The optional reconfigurable center console is where Ram truly shines. This space features Type-C USB high-speed charging ports, capable of powering up to five phones, as well as room for a 15-inch laptop and a bin for hanging file folders. Ford’s optional flow-through center console also offers room to store your laptop; however, there’s no mention of Type-C USB charging.


RAM 1500 with Apple CarPlay® Technology

Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150: Technology & Connectivity

Moving on to the interior cabins of these two trucks, it’s time to talk tech. Both Ram and Ford come with a lot of it, but which offers more? Let’s dig in!

Beginning with the infotainment system, you’ll notice that the 1500 offers an available Uconnect® 12.0 NAV on an astonishing 12-inch touchscreen display, complete with split-screen capability. While the F-150 also provides optional navigation and a Split-View Display, its largest available screen size is just 8 inches.

Both of these infotainment displays can be equipped with Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ for seamless smartphone integration. These programs make it easy to send and receive text messages, listen to your favorite playlists, and much more.

Speaking of playlists, your top tracks will sound better than ever through the Ram 1500’s available Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System, featuring 19 speakers and 900 watts of power. You can also opt for genuine stainless-steel speaker grills for that premium look.

Folks driving the Ford F-150 can upgrade to the optional B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. However, they’ll have to settle for just 10 speakers and 750 watts of power.
