Drivers near Rockwall, Terrell, Rowlett, and Wylie, TX, should read ahead to see which one comes out on top!
The 2022 Ram 1500 pulls out all the stops when it comes to capability. This model can tow a whopping 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, thanks to its available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Hybrid Technology.
In addition to this engine, this model offers a standard TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission. This transmission maximizes every drop of fuel in your tank using next-generation technology while providing seamless shifting among 8 possible gears.
The Tacoma doesn’t quite match up in nearly every capacity. With a maximum capacity of 6,800 pounds when properly equipped, this model can tow half as much as the Ram 1500. Plus, you’ll have a 6-speed transmission, no matter which Tacoma configuration you choose.
In general, the 2022 Ram 1500 measures out bigger than the 2022 Toyota Tacoma.
The largest cab option of the Ram—the Quad Cab—offers seating for up to 6, while the Tacoma maxes out at 5 seats. In addition to having more than 10 inches less rear-seat legroom than the Ram model’s 45.2 inches, the Tacoma also lacks these available features:
The Ram 1500 still doesn’t stop there, though. This model also offers an available reconfigurable center console. Front-seat passengers in the Tacoma receive a couple of cupholders and a limited storage compartment.
Tech is another important factor in the pickup truck industry. Intuitive features can mean the difference in getting the job done on time. Thankfully, the 2022 Ram 1500 has every base covered with an array of high-end technology, including an available Uconnect® 5 system with a large 12-inch touchscreen display.
You’ll have all kinds of features at your fingertips on this screen, including a Navigation system, smartphone integration, and more. You’ll be able to access your favorite apps while you follow turn-by-turn directions.
The Toyota Tacoma also offers a large touchscreen infotainment system and similar connectivity options, but provides an 8-inch screen. This prevents this system from giving you larger, clearer directions.
As you can see, the 2022 Ram 1500 takes the cake when it comes to performance, cabin comfort, and technology. See for yourself what this model can do by taking a test drive with us at Rockwall CDJR.
