The Experts at Klein Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Weigh In

Both the RAM 1500 and Toyota Tundra have been longstanding staples of the truck segment and have devoted followings.  It is easy to understand why as both models have provided drivers with a great pickup driving experience for many years.  If you are currently shopping for a new truck near Clintonville, WI, these two pickups have probably made it onto your radar.  Klein Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, located at 10 W 4th Street in Clintonville, WI, has decided to compare both trucks side-by-side to show that, while both choices are great, the RAM 1500 is superior in many categories that matter to those looking for a new pickup.


Engine/Performance

RAM understands that not all Clintonville, WI drivers want the same thing from their truck driving experience.  While the Toyota Tundra only comes with one engine for all trim levels, the RAM 1500 gives folks the choice of four different engines, including the new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine.  Even when comparing V8 engines, the RAM 1500 comes out on top with a more powerful option.  The Tundra's 5.7-liter V8 engines generates 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque, while the RAM's available 5.7-liter V8 with eTorque delivers 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.  Not only does the RAM truck have the advantage over the Tundra when it comes to power, it also has the upper hand when it comes to efficiency.  The Tundra will cost you more at the pump, getting you an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.  In contrast, the RAM gets 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Interior Space/Seating and Storage

When it comes to the space provided in the cabin of the pickup, the RAM 1500 beats out the Tundra in a variety of ways.  The RAM and Tundra provides available seating for up to six passengers.  The RAM pickup offers these passengers more leg room with 45.2-inches of space as compared to 42.3 for the Tundra.  Drivers will feel like they have a lot more room with 40.9 inches of head room as compared to 39.7 for the Toyota truck.  When it comes to storage, the RAM 1500 makes loading and unloading cargo much easier for drivers than it would be in a Tundra thanks to the available Multifunction Tailgate.  This lets drivers open the tailgate in a variety of different ways and still have it hold up to 2,000 pounds.  The Tundra, on the other hand, can only hold 1,730 pounds.  RAM also features the available RAMBOX® storage system to help organize and store your cargo.

Interior Features/ Amenities

Both trucks have some of the most desired convenience, luxury, and safety features on the market.  The RAM 1500 was redesigned for the 2019 model year, meaning it has the most up to date, cutting edge features available.  It even has an available 12-inch touchscreen to house the intuitive Uconnect® infotainment system.  This system makes it easy for drivers to toggle between all the functions of the truck.  Both trucks feature coveted features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration and a premium audios system for listening to tunes.  They also both have attractive safety features like Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.  Both trucks also have available navigation in case you want to find your way around without using any of your phone's precious datea.
