Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150 in Rochester Hills, MI

2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Ram 1500 

When choosing a new pickup truck, we at Rochester Hills CDJR know it can be hard to choose from the industry's "big three." The Ford F-150 is a popular choice, but is popular always the best? You might be surprised with what the Ram 1500 has to offer.

Better Pricing

Just because two trucks are in the same price point doesn't mean they're necessarily the exact same price. With a starting price of $26,495*, the Ram 1500 is less expensive than the Ford F-150's $27,110* starting cost, over a $600 price difference.

Comfortable Interior

Many experts generally agree that the F-150's interior isn't quite as impressive as they hoped. Conversely, the Ram 1500 consistently scores top marks in the category of seat comfort and support. The Ram 1500 also offers better visibility and more room to stretch inside the cabin.

Advanced Technology

While many vehicles in the industry solely use a touchscreen menu for their infotainment systems, Ram listened to customer complaints about how hard it can be to reach the screen in certain situations and provides drivers with extra analog controls and one of the segment's best voice command systems.

Verdict: Ford has a few advantages, like more recently updated style, but the 2017 Ram 1500 is where it's at if you're looking for a truck that has better all-around features. Plus, its standard power and towing gives the Ram 1500 an edge.
