Comparing Interiors on the 2020 Ram 1500 vs the 2020 Ford F-150 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia

When reviewing designs and aesthetic appeal, the 2020 Ram 1500 is a favourite among truck enthusiasts not just for the exterior design but the sheer luxury it offers. The Ram 1500 offers you real wood and beautiful leather upholstery. Reclining is a joy when you're resting your truck, as the vehicle offers reclining seats for the front and rear passengers. The truck's interior offers Ram's 4th generation Uconnect system, with a 12-inch largest-in-class touch screen. The suspension and frames are made of steel as the side steps are powered to deploy automatically, and the tailgate is multifunctional; that's right, there are now more ways than one to open your tailgate.

While the Ford F-150 is a great match, it offers a boxy style, less appealing on the outside and less modern. Ford offers manual air conditioner, optional floor covering, and floor mats. The seats are just made of cloth as no wood is used in the interior, so you don't get the quality feeling you'd enjoy in the Ram 1500.
