High-Tech Features

  • A Driver Information Center is standard with the 2018 RAM 1500, but you'll need to pay extra for this optional feature on the 2018 Ford F-150.
  • Satellite radio is standard when you choose the 2018 RAM 1500, but not the Ford F-150. Likewise, you'll enjoy six speakers in the RAM 1500. The Ford F-150 has only four.
  • Little perks make every ride more pleasant. Add on the optional mini overhead console in the 2018 RAM 1500. This isn't a feature you'll find--even optionally--in the 2018 Ford F-150.
  • Cruise control is standard on the 2018 RAM 1500. It's available on the 2018 Ford F-150 too, but you'll have to pay extra for it.
