2019 Ram 1500 vs 2019 Toyota Tundra
When it comes to offering great value to discerning truck shoppers, the 2019 Ram 1500 is hitting all the right notes. This full-size truck delivers top value no matter the trim level, offers fuel-sipping eTorque engine technology, and is available with some of the best interior features in the class. But how does this all-new pickup stack up against the Toyota Tundra?
The 2019 Ram 1500 has a slightly higher starting price than the 2019 Toyota Tundra, but it comes out of the gate with premium capability. Even though the 2019 Tundra comes standard with a V-8 engine, it offers only 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Ram 1500 comes close to that just with its base 3.6-liter V-6. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, this engine offers 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. However, that is far from the end of the capability that the all-new Ram 1500 offers.
