The new Ford F-150 has gotten a lot of attention from our customers at Waconia Ford. That being said, many are curious about how it stacks up to the competition from both RAM and Chevrolet.
Stacking up Safety Features
There are many ways in which we can compare a group of rivaling pickup trucks, but one characteristic that some of our customers are curious about is safety. While pickup trucks of course are known for their performance, many models tend to fall short when it comes to safety technology.
Standard safety tech in the Chevy Silverado is about as basic as it gets with six airbags, trailer sway control, and hill start assist making up the basic package. You can opt for greater safety tech should you spend the extra money. But you’ll have to upgrade to at least the LT or High Country trim configurations to get features like blind-spot monitors or rear parking sensors.
Moving on to the RAM 1500, this pickup truck takes things a step further than it’s Chevy brand competitor. The baseline RAM 1500 comes equipped with six airbags, a rear-view camera, stability control, and anti-lock brakes. However, if you want more safety gear you’ll have to spend a fair amount more.
The Ford F-150 is a standout of its class as it makes safety features in its mid-range Lariat trim standard. Whereas other competitor trucks walled features like automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitors to a premium purchase point, the Ford F-150 makes them largely more accessible.
