The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford F-150, fresh off a transformation that made it leaner yet much-improved in most ways, gets new Sync 3 infotainment and trailer-backup wizardry. The 2016 Ram 1500 will win over full-size truck buyers looking for a diesel offering and an opulent interior, but safety scores need improvement.
