Ram 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra Truck Comparison

See How the Ram 1500 Outperforms the Toyota Tundra

Truck drivers put performance and capability at a premium, but they also want a vehicle that's comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The Ram 1500 offers all that and so much more, which is why it so easily outperforms the Toyota Tundra. While the Tundra offers great features and is a good vehicle, it can't match the capability, performance, and versatility you'll find on the Ram 1500.

Performance and Capability

The Ram 1500's power and capabilities far outshine the Tundra's; not only do the three available Ram engines deliver more muscle, but the Ram is offered with an available turbodiesel engine that significantly increases fuel economy. The naturally aspirated standard 3.6-Liter V6 24-Valve VVT Engine on the Ram 1500 delivers 305-horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, while the available 5.7-Liter V8 HEMI® MDS VVT engine amps the power up to 395 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque - both greater than the Tundra's two available engine choices. The Ram 1500's impressive maximum available towing capacity of 11,000 pounds is also slightly greater than that of the Tundra, plus only the Ram 1500 offers the class-exclusive Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension.

The Ram 1500 Offers Superior Storage and Cargo Space

The Toyota Tundra offers very little in the way of enhanced storage and cargo space, while the Ram 1500 offers an abundance of ways to keep you organized and productive. The quad cab offers fold out storage space that can be accessed when you flip down the rear seats, plus the watertight storage under the rear floor and small compartments under the back seat will come in handy on the road. The class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System makes everything easily accessible and neatly tucked away, while the standard spray -in bed liner protects your truck bed from wear and tear. Neither one of these exciting features are available on the Toyota Tundra.

Features and Trim

Choosing a powerful truck doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort since the Ram 1500 is offered in 11 different trims that range from basic work truck to sophisticated luxury, while the Tundra is only offered in six. There are also several cab configurations, so you're sure to find a model that works for your lifestyle and budget.  While the Tundra's interior has been updated, The Car Connection writes that "it's not finished as well as the Ram." The Ram 1500 won't let you down, with available features such as leather seating, heated front seats and steering wheel, a premium sound system, real wood trim, navigation, and so much more.

The Ram 1500 Offers More Standard and Available Features Than the Toyota Tundra

The Ram 1500 offers an abundance of standard features, depending on which model you choose. The base level Ram Tradesman is the perfect work truck, coming standard with the RamBox® Cargo Management System and a standard spray-in bed liner. You'll also find a locking tailgate, a tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, and a 6-speaker audio system with USB inputs - all standard. The Big Horn model adds class-exclusive Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension to improve capability and enhance performance, along with Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system with an 8.4-Inch touchscreen. Moving up the trim ladder to the Ram 1500 Sport, you'll find heated front seats and steering wheel, and on the Laramie, you'll enjoy exclusive laser-etched leather interior and the Uconnect® 8.4 NAV system. Choosing the Laramie Limited will bring you fantastic luxury features such as real wood accents and an all-black premium interior. Overall, there are far more choices available on the Ram than the Toyota, so you'll be able to find the perfect truck for your lifestyle and budget.
