2015 Ford F-150: Luxury-Like Ride Runs Close Second to Ram
June 12, 2015
I don't expect a full-size truck like our 2015 Ford F-150 to ride like a sedan. It's a truck. It's built to work first and do everything else second. That's probably why I'm so impressed by our F-150. It's shockingly supple over rough roads and almost luxury-car like on smooth surfaces.
Supple seems like an odd word to describe a truck, but that's exactly what comes to mind. It soaks cracks and ruts with a faint rumble that barely intrudes into the cabin. There's a little bit of body shake over big potholes, but nothing objectionable.
On the highway, the F-150 floats a little over slow rises, but it's nothing problematic. Steering is surprisingly precise and the suspension feels tight, so the truck doesn't require constant steering corrections. If I were going on a long road trip, I would it in a second.
Is it better than our Ram? I wouldn't say better, but it's close, closer than I was expecting actually. I would probably still give the Ram a slight edge for overall comfort. That said, you can't go wrong with either for ride quality. They're both comfortable daily drivers that can eat up miles in perfect comfort.
