2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Smart Storage Feature

April 27, 2015

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

Not sure why I didn't notice that there's a cell phone slot in the console of our Ram 1500 before. After all, it works surprisingly well, even though I'm not sure that it's really designed for a cell phone at all.

My current phone is a Samsung S5 which is on the bigger side of the spectrum. Even so, it fits so loosely that it will flop back and forth under hard acceleration and braking. That's why I'm not sure it's really meant for cell phone use. Either that or designers determined that it's better to make it big enough to fit almost any phone instead of rendering it useless if it's too small.

I've seen several attempts at dedicated cell phone slots recently and this is the first one I've used on a regular basis. I'll have to poke around in our F-150 a little more to see if it has an equivalent feature, but for now the Ram gets a few points for this handy design.
