I know Ram models of past had some very cheap feeling plastic in their interiors, but I thought the latest model had a significantly improved, high quality "luxurious" interior compared to the current Ford and GM offerings. That's what I recall reading anyway. I'm sure it can vary widely with the different models and trims.

I'd say my 2015 RAM has a pretty nice quality interior. Granted it is optioned to the teeth and everything is covered in leather.

I looked at the 2014-2017 models and felt it looked pretty cheap imo. Im not against plastics in my truck as it is afterall a truck but still the GM and ford offerings look better to me. Honestly though the lower trim level fords feel pretty cheap to me too compared to the previous gen.

IMO interior quality on RAM 2014-2017 was ok on top trims. I really dislike the interior design of the pre 2015 F150s. Very old school American utilitarian kind of look. If it was say 2014 Ford, GM, RAM... my interior picks would be RAM #2, GM #2, Ford #3. However if you count the remodeled interior in the F150 2015+ then that would move to first place hands down.

The new RAMs that just came out have a MUCH nicer interior... at least from the pics that I have seen. Meanwhile IMO GM just phoned it in and basically has the exact same shit they had before. Having not seen the new RAM interior in person I would say it would be a close call now between RAM and Ford.

Ive driven both a XLT and Lariat F150 both were 2019 and it was a night and day difference. I loved the Lariat interior. The XLT just felt cheaper in comparison to the older trucks.
Pretty much decided im not gonna get a Ram or any japanese offering. So its down to Ford vs GM. I was looking and the silverado LTZ are actually considerably cheaper than the GMC Denali and even SLT so i might end up going that route even though the GMC looks better
