Both of these impressive trucks have received several new updates this year. Here is a look at the new features that you can find on each of these vehicles.
2022 Ram 1500
This year the Ram 1500 adds three new special edition packages to the lineup.

This package also adds bucket seats to the interior.
The new G/T package comes standard with the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 engine with an eTorque system and adds a cold-air intake and factory exhaust. The interior also comes with bucket seats and there is the G/T badging on the paddle shifters.
There is also a 10th Anniversary package that adds Quilted leather upholstery that is a gorgeous Sea Salt and Indigo colour, a suede headliner, a metal pedal kit, and a 19-speaker premium audio system. On the exterior, the truck gets a new Blue Shade paint colour and a multifunctional tailgate.
2022 Ford F-150
The Ford F-150 also adds a new appearance package to its lineup as well. The new Black Appearance package adds black wheels, accents, and sleek black exterior colour to the truck. There is also an available Bed Utility Package that adds locking tie-down to the bed as well as a step for the tailgate.
Both of these trucks feature a rugged and bold exterior design. However, only the Ram 1500 offers a practical and versatile exterior design. The 1500 offers a multifunctional tailgate that allows you to open the tailgate like normal, or fold the doors out in a 60/40 split, which gives you easier access into the bed. There is also an available RamBox that adds a long, lockable, and waterproof box into the side of the bed wall and is large enough to hold various tools and other small to medium-sized objects.
Infotainment and Connectivity options. The Ram 1500 comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, while the F-150 only offers an 8-inch touchscreen display as the standard equipment. Both trucks, however, do offer an available 12-inch touchscreen display. All displays come standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity options.
