When it comes to utility, nothing compares to a pickup truck. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM we offer a diverse assortment of RAM model pickup trucks, including the impressive 2020 RAM 1500. However, we’re all about competition here and are curious how the latest Toyota Tundra compares to this RAM flagship.
Starting with the 2020 RAM 1500, here is a pickup truck that starts out of the gate with impressive power. The base model gets a 3.6-liter V6 eTorque engine, that utilizes mild hybrid technology to support low-speed acceleration and reduce overall engine load. Combined with a 48-volt electric motor, this base model engine build gets an impressive 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft worth of torque. The accompanying 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are a great fit on the base model Ram 1500, and with a max towing capacity of 12,570, this is a pickup truck that won’t let you down when some serious heavy lifting is required.
The Toyota Tundra, on the other hand, may seem more robust at first glance. The base model 5.7-liter V-8 is much larger than what’s offered on the RAM 1500, offering 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft worth of torque. However, the lack of configuration options is a huge miss for this Toyota pickup. The RAM 1500, offers its standard engine, as well as a turbodiesel and a roaring V8. Toyota on the other hand only offers this simple V-8 engine build. And with a top towing capacity of 10,200 pounds, it’s a shame that this horsepower and torque is being limited by lower-quality engineering.
When it comes to power and utility, the Toyota Tundra may look decent on paper, but it falls on its face when it comes to application. Meanwhile, the 2020 Ram 1500 delivers on its promises, providing the kind of workhorse experience drivers have come to expect.
