Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra

 
  
  


If you’re a driver in the area of Rockwall, Rowlett, Terrell, and Wylie, Texas, you need a capable truck that’s up for whatever challenge you throw its way. That’s something you’ll find in both the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra.

However, when the team at Rockwall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) compared the Ram 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra and looked at them side by side, we found that one of these pickups offers more of what local drivers need from their next full-size pickup truck.

Below, you’ll find our detailed comparison of the 2022 Ram 1500 with the 2022 Toyota Tundra. Read ahead to learn more about which one comes out on top when it comes to performance, capability, technology, and more!


Ram 1500 Towing

 

2020 Ram 1500

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Specs & Capabilities

If you have a heavy load to tow, you can get it done with both the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra, each of which has a towing capacity of over 10,000 pounds. The Ram 1500 and Tundra also help keep your trailer steady with a standard trailer sway control feature.

However, you can tow quite a bit more with the Ram 1500, which offers a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when the vehicle is properly equipped. On the other hand, the Toyota Tundra can only tow up to 12,000 pounds when properly equipped.

With nearly 13,000 pounds of towing capability on your side, you’ll be able to move all kinds of things with the Ram 1500, including:

  • All but the biggest and most lavish camping trailer
  • Large recreational boat for weekends on the lake
  • Hauling box for moving your race car to the track
  • Flatbed trailer piled with mulch for DIY landscaping projects

Both trucks offer different engine options. In the Tundra, the standard I-Force 3.5L V6 engine generates 348 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. The other two engine option are enhanced versions of the V6, generating up to 479 horsepower.

The available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology in the Ram 1500, on the other hand, produces 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, which is likely why it can tow more than the Toyota Tundra can.

Other engine options for the Ram 1500 include the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque, available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, and the available, incredibly powerful 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine with 702 horsepower.

In essence, the Ram 1500 lets you select the engine you need and the power you need to, giving you more versatility than the Toyota Tundra.


Payload & Cargo Area in the Ram & the Toyota

In addition to what they can pull behind them, the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra can carry a lot on their backs. When properly equipped, the Ram 1500 can haul up to 2,300 pounds of payload weight in the truck’s bed.

With the Toyota Tundra, you may have to leave some things behind as this model can’t handle more than 1,940 pounds of weight in the bed of the vehicle. That is a nearly 400-pound difference between the Ram 1500 and Tundra.

The Ram 1500 also has a few neat features that’ll make hauling easier, starting with the available RamBox® Cargo Management System. These boxes are located in the walls of the bed above the wheels. It’s also lockable, illuminated, and includes a power outlet for operating tools on the go. Without a similar system, drivers of the Toyota Tundra will have to use up cabin space.

The Ram 1500 also sports a multifunction tailgate, which is split 60/40, so you can access the bed of the truck in a whole new way. The split tailgate opens to 88-degrees. You can still access the Ram 1500’s truck bed traditionally, too, if you need to, giving you several ways to use your truck bed.  The Tundra, unfortunately, doesn’t offer a feature like this.

As you can see, the Ram 1500 prioritizes every passenger on board. The Tundra, on the other hand, squeezes second-row passengers a bit.


Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Convenience Features

We know you’re not afraid to work hard, but sometimes it’s nice to have a truck that’ll take on some of the hard stuff for you. Luckily, the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra offer these kinds of convenience features.

Both models come equipped with a multi-faceted touchscreen infotainment system, offering in-cabin entertainment, smartphone integration, hands-free phone calling, and turn-by-turn navigation.

On top of all the infotainment services you’ll ever need, the Ram model’s touchscreen system also integrates with the available 360-degree Surround Vision Camera with exterior cameras for optimal hitching and a birds-eye view of your truck and the area around you. Tack on an available Digital Rearview Mirror with an LCD monitor for good measure when it comes to visibility.

Maneuverability is built-in as well with the Ram available Trailer Reverse Steering Control. Easily steer your trailer using an in-cabin Trailer Steering knob.

To help you tow at night, the Ram 1500 also has a Trailer Hitch Light. You can clearly see hands-free while hitching up your trailer whenever you need to.

The Tundra has its own version of a panoramic camera system and reverse steering control but does not have a digital rearview mirror like the Ram 1500.
