Comparison of Key Safety and Interior Features

In the past, a light-duty truck was a simple machine used for practical purposes. However, modern truck users demand a range of features to make their vehicles as comfortable and user-friendly as possible. To start, let's examine technology. All Ram models come standard with remote keyless entry and push-button start. This feature is not available on the base-level F-150 XL and is not standard until you reach the level of the F-150 Lariat. All Ram models come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, hands-free calling and a Uconnect multimedia center with touchscreen and six speakers. The F-150 has a Sync 4 Bluetooth-enabled system with enhanced voice recognition.

Both brands offer cloth and vinyl seating at the base level, with more luxurious materials such as leather at higher price points. The F-150 has optional or standard dual-zone temperature control for increased comfort on all models. Standard air conditioning is the only option for the Ram 1500 until the Laramie trim.
