Convenient Capability of the Ram 3500 vs Ford F-350
You already know that the Ram 3500 and Ford F-350 are incredibly capable. They don’t call them heavy-duty trucks for nothing!
Not only do they both make diesel engine power available, but the diesel engine delivers at least 1,000 lb-ft of torque for both trucks. It also gives them a maximum towing capacity of more than 35,000 pounds when properly equipped.
They don’t stop there, though. Both trucks feature an available trailer reverse guidance system. This turns your infotainment touchscreen into a 360-degree rearview camera with an adjustable display screen that lets you see more when trying to back up or dock your trailer.
When it’s time to hitch your trailer, however, the Ram 3500 comes out on top. It has an available Auto-Level Rear Suspension that includes Bed Lowering Mode. This brings the rear suspension to its lowest position for easier trailer hookup.
Without a similar feature, drivers in the Ford F-350 may struggle a bit more when hitching up to tow.
Inside the Cabins of the Ram 3500 vs Ford F-350
Connectivity is the name of the game when you take the wheel of the Ram 3500 or Ford F-350. Both come well-equipped to keep you in command as you hit the road. For example, both have an available touchscreen display in the center stack.
In the Ford F-350, you’ll get an available 8-inch touchscreen display while the Ram 3500 makes a 12-inch touchscreen available. This includes split-screen capability, so you can see twice as much information. For example, you can view available navigation on the upper screen while changing the radio station on the lower screen.
With a smaller screen and no split-screen functionality, it may be a bit more difficult to access your connectivity features in the Ford F-350.
Still, both trucks keep you well-connected through smartphone integration features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These allow you to access your favorite phone apps through your truck’s touchscreen, including navigation, audio books, internet radio streaming, and phone contacts.
They also both have Bluetooth® wireless capabilities, so you can make hands-free phone calls while on-the-go or stream audio directly from your phone through your truck’s speakers.
