2020 Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500 Technology Features

On paper, the Ram 1500 appears to have more standard technology features. It includes a 5" touchscreen, Bluetooth, and a Wi-Fi hot spot on all trim levels. The base Ford F-150 comes without these kinds of features in an effort to keep costs low and entertainment features limited for the purposes of a true work truck. These are popular stripped down models for company-owned trucks. For average consumers, the 2020 Ford F-150 also offers a plethora of technology options on other trims, all at a very affordable price compared to the Ram 1500's base model.
