Gone are the days of trucks only being focused on engine power and hauling numbers. The Ford F-150 offers superior comforts all through the cabin. While both have a touchscreen infotainment system, the SYNC-3 system on the Ford F-150 is sharp, responsive and intuitive compared to the Uconnect system on Ram 1500 models.
