2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Best-in-Class Cabin
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on February 2, 2016
After many months spent comparing our 2014 Ram 1500 to our Ford F-150 long-termers, I'm still in the Ram camp when it comes to cabin comfort, design and overall appeal. Here's why:
A great driving position makes everything work better, and the Ram's setup puts me right where I want to be. I don't have to reach too far for anything and the sightlines aren't obstructed. It's still a big truck, but it doesn't feel that way from the driver's seat.
The seats themselves are great, too. I've done plenty of long trips in our Ram and rarely do I get uncomfortable. The heating and cooling functions in our Laramie trim certainly help.
I also like the way the cabin of our Ram looks and feels. Again, some of that can be chalked up to the Laramie but there's more to it than that. From the gauge cluster to the climate controls to the center console, everything looks purposeful and well-built. I don't always get that feeling in our F-150.
Is this the truck I would buy if I were in the market? Might be. Then again, there's that new Nissan Titan out there now so we'll see.
