Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500: Inside the Cabins

What's even more impressive about these two pickups is that they combine all that power with an extremely comfortable cabin design. They each have various options when it comes to the level of luxury and style you want in your truck, plus they both offer a great deal of space for passengers.

While both offer an extremely large amount of legroom to the rear seats, the Ford F-150 provides a little extra room to you and your front passengers with up to three more inches of front legroom. Plus, only the 2021 F-150 has available first-class amenities like:

  • Multicontour leather seats with Active Motion®
  • Max Recline driver and passenger seats
  • 10-way power-adjustable front seats

While the Ram 1500 does offer available 8-way power front seats, you can't add a massaging feature or have the ability to lay your seat completely flat when you want to rest during your next road trip, like you can with the F-150.

More Confidence Driving and Towing

Both of these trucks come with some truly innovative systems that can help you out in a variety of ways. When towing, they each have systems, both standard and available, that can help when hitching up your trailer, keep everything stable as you drive, and even make sure your trailer turns the direction you want it to go when backing up. Again, though, a few available safety systems you can only get with the Ford F-150 include:

  • Active Park Assist™ 2.0
  • Hill Descent Control™
  • Evasive Steering Assist
  • Intersection Assist

While the 2021 Ram 1500 does have an available parking assist system, it doesn't let you enjoy hands-free parking, like the F-150 does with its available Active Park Assist™ 2.0.
