Although these are minor differences, they majorly come down to what you plan to do with the truck. If this is your work vehicle and solely your work vehicle, some of the extra features may not come as important to you as keeping the MSRP down. Or, if you plan on using this as your vehicle that serves your work and personal life then some of these features may be vital for your daily commute.
