I have no complaints- purchased a truck with sync 3 and base speakers- went with the JBL concert edition package from Crutchfield for 399.99 and sounds great

I think you missed my point. You payed extra for great sound, the Jeep has nice sound with the cheapest radio available.

I also thing that infotainment systems age poorly. The 12" screen is really nice and is the centerpiece of the Ram's interior. But in 2025 how do you think it's going to look compared to new technology? It would be like putting a iPhone 5S next to the new iPhone XS Max.
I'd say it's going to look a heck of a lot better than my 8" Sync 3 in 2025. I don't get how you can knock Ram for setting the bar in terms of infotainment and interior technology, just because it's going to be somewhat outdated in nearly a decade. If Ford would have been the one to come out with it, everyone here would be doing cartwheels and backflips... and rightfully so. Ford and GM are in RAM's rear view in terms of interior / tech as far as I'm concerned.

If Ford steps p to the level of Ram's interior fit, finish and eye-candy, we'll be paying $80,000 for Lariats. You can't have your cake, eat it, and expect others to pay for it. I think Ford guessed correctly in that they have a very large owner base that expects utility in their trucks regardless of the trim level. No matter what you have to say about Ford's idea of a truck, you can't overlook the numbers. F series outsells the Silverado by 50%. That's a huge gap. About a 310,000 truck difference in 2017.

Ram opted for a softer suspension and creature comforts over engine tech that consumes a lot of R&D cost to develop, or cost to lease. They are not better or worse than Ford, just different. All the old guys I know that no longer haul anything of consequence love Rams. They are great non-loaded trucks to drive. Feel more like SUV's than trucks. The 150 is at the other end of the spectrum, being the most haul capable. 1500's fall somewhere in the middle in terms of capability and interior quality, IMO.

Now that's cool, I'd love to have that feature!

I think the new RAM uses nicer looking interior materials, but the F150 has a better layout, driving position, and visibility, IMO. And honestly, I use my truck pretty hard, so material look & feel is way down the list for me. Everybody harps on hard plastic, but it's durable & easy to clean.

My bet is that it will be a refreshed Super Duty with a new grille, the new 7.3L Gas engine, and 10R140 ten speed transmission.

F150 had its MCE in 2018. They wouldn't do it so quickly.

Default DI?

Ugh... direct injection? Would hope for port and direct injection in 2020.

VVT and AFM could also be used to lower fuel consumption around town.
