Pickup trucks continue to be among the most popular vehicles across the United States. They are great resources for manual labor, they are awesome tools for towing and hauling your favorite weekend toys, and they are becoming surprisingly roomy and efficient with each new model year. The 2019 Ram 1500 and 2018 Ford F-150 are both standouts in the segment. Because they are so similar in terms of performance, towing, safety ratings, and efficiency, determining which of the two is the superior truck really comes down to interior features and styling. That, of course, makes the 2019 Ram 1500 the winner.


Far and away, the Ram 1500 offers a more feature-laden interior. Standard features include a 5-inch touch screen, push-button start, three USB ports, and a rearview camera. You can also opt for wireless device charging, an enhanced Uconnect System with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. You can even upgrade to an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touch screen. The Ford F-150 is limited on standard features. For basic things like the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, a 10-speaker sound system, and dual-zone automatic climate control, you will have to pay extra.

The quality of the 2019 Ram 1500’s interior is also superior. The high-quality features include real leather (more than any other full-size truck available) and real wood. The 2019 Ford F-150 simply can’t compete.

The seats inside the 2019 Ram 1500 are also more comfortable. Base seating is designed with vinyl upholstery, but you can upgrade to cloth, leather, or premium leather. The F-150 does not offer premium leather. The back seat of the Ram is also more spacious; just fold down the back seat, and even your tallest friend can lie down across the floor.


The 2019 Ram 1500 is more sophisticated in appearance than the 2019 Ford F-150. Exterior features include sleek headlamps, a sculpted hood, a new aluminum tailgate with integrated spoiler, and 16 unique wheel designs, including 22-inch aluminum wheels. The bed of the pickup is designed for convenience; the available RamBox® Cargo Management System is one of the Ram 1500’s top features.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is available in 14 unique colors: Billet Silver Metallic Clear-Coat, Black Forest Green Pearl-Coat, Patriot Blue Pearl-Coat, Flame Red Clear-Coat, Delmonico Red Pearl-Coat, Blue Streak Pearl-Coat, Rugged Brown Pearl-Coat, Bright White Clear-Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clear-Coat, Maximum Steel Metallic Clear-Coat, and Diamond Black Crystal Pearl-Coat.
