My truck isn't exactly a base model but it wasn't optioned up either, and it's from 2001 so essentially base model now. Compared to my daily (loaded Chrysler 300) I really miss heated/cooled seats and the touchscreen nav. At some point I may put a headunit that lets me do Android Auto so I can have the moving map. I don't use it for turn by turn but I do use it for advanced warning of when my turn is coming up, or to cut through a side street when there's construction or an accident ahead, and just to help orient myself. It's super helpful for avoiding surprises. I don't miss the heated/cooled seats as much as I thought I might, but it's been mild in the few months I've had the truck. They're a necessity on the 300, it's all black on black. I also wish I had remote start. All things that I can live with because it's a used truck and it fits my needs, but if I were buying new I would certainly option it up as much as I could afford. Trucks are becoming just as luxurious as cars these days, even more so in ride comfort with room for more suspension travel and thicker tires. I see no reason for base model trucks for anything besides fleet duty.
