The new RAM 1500 has impressed many drivers and dealers across the Avenel, NJ area, however, it isn’t the only pickup truck out there. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM we’re always transparent with our customers and are thrilled to give you a brief comparison of the 2020 RAM 1500 and the 2020 Toyota Tundra.
The 2020 Toyota Tundra
Rolling fresh off of the factory floor, the 2020 Toyota Tundra is a pickup truck with some potential. The 5.7-liter V8 engine is a quite powerful, that also and it is partnered with a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, drivers may be sorely disappointed as this is the only engine option available, giving drivers a very limited experience all around. The Toyota Tundra also doesn’t offer much in the way of cabin space and only comes in two body styles. On top of that, the one and only V8 engine is a serious gas guzzler, sucking down 18 mpg combined
The 2020 RAM 1500 may start with a smaller engine, but that isn’t the only option available to you. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 with eTorque technology that dishes out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft worth of torque, which many drivers will find to be plenty. There are also beefier engine options too, like the 5.7-liter V8 which pumps out 395 horsepower and a tremendous 410 lb-ft worth of torque. The interior of the RAM 1500 offers a much better layout, and like the Toyota Tundra, it also offers two cab options in the form of the Quad Cab and Crew Cab. That said, base models can save a lot on gas by offering a full 23 mpg combined.
The 2020 RAM 1500 is a pickup truck designed for pickup truck lovers, and you can take one out for a test-drive at our RAM dealership. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we make sure your dealership experience is simply the best.
