Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150 in Traverse City

See How the New Ram 1500 Stacks Up Against the New Ford F-150

A lot of people in Traverse City drive pickup trucks these days, and not just for work. Many folks use trucks for daily transportation because of their high ground clearance and convenient bed. If you want a pickup that's both highly capable and well-appointed, get the new Ram 1500. This full-size truck has strong engines to help you with heavy chores, while offering a smooth ride for your commute. It also has one of the nicest interiors in its class.

The new Ford F-150 is also a very popular full-size pickup truck with solid capability. It's reliable and roomy, with a user-friendly infotainment system. While the F-150 has many positive attributes, it can't quite match the Ram 1500's comfort and convenience.
