Tech, Interior, and Features

When making the right decision on which new truck you will purchase; comfort and amenities are just as important to look into as powertrain options.

One of our favorite new features in the 2021 Ford F-150 that we think Tehama Country drivers will love are the newly designed fold-flat front seats. This means you can fold your seats almost completely parallel to the ground to enjoy a quick break, a relaxing night under the stars, and much more. This feature is not offered in the RAM 1500.

The Ford F-150 also comes equipped with a useful storage compartment for your tools and expensive items, as well as a newly designed center console that makes taking your office with you to the worksite effortless and organized.

The RAM 1500 shares similar features to the F-150, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen.

Both trucks are available with 12-inch touchscreens on higher trim levels.

Your new truck also needs to be safe, so when the roads from Red Bluff to Chico, CA become far from optimal, your truck can assist in keeping you safe. When comparing the 2021 Ford F-150 to the RAM 1500, you'll have more standard safety and security features such as standard automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection in the Ford F-150.

Picking the Right Truck

The Ford F-150 is America's number one selling truck, and as you can see, there are many reasons why.

But, the best way for you to decide which model is right for you is to give them a test drive. Come on down to Corning Ford and give the 2021 F-150 a test drive.
