Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra

The 2022 Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra are two bold trucks with plenty of brains and brawn. Whether you’re towing, off-roading, or taking command at the jobsite, they’ll both get the job done. The question is: Which is the ideal choice for your work around Saco, Portland, and Scarborough, ME?

Ram 1500 Towing Power

Ram 1500 vs Tundra: Towing Power

Do you have a travel trailer or industrial equipment to get to the worksite? Both trucks are capable towing vehicles, but you’ll be able to pull a bit more with the Ram 1500. It has a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, while the Tundra tops out at just 12,000 pounds.

If you’re thinking about leaving the trailer at home, you can load up the truck bed. The Ram 1500 can hold up to 2,320 pounds worth of payload, while the Tundra can only manage 1,940 pounds.

The Ram 1500 also makes it a lot easier to load up. It’s available with a multifunction tailgate with doors that swing out to the side or flip down like a traditional tailgate. There’s also the RamBox® Cargo Management System, which integrates two versatile storage bins into the side of your tailgate. The Toyota Tundra doesn’t offer either of these features.

Matching Brawn with Brains

Both trucks come with several smart towing and safety features that will help make your life easier. When you’re getting ready to hitch up your trailer, you can line up your truck and the hitch with their available surround view camera systems. They also offer a variable suspension to help level out the hitch.

Once you’re out on the road, you’ll have all the confidence you need regardless of how big that trailer is. Both trucks come standard with:

  • Trailer Sway Damping
  • Trailer Brake-Controller
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Hill Start Assist

Now that you’ve reached your destination, it’s time to park your trailer. Luckily, both the Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra offer a Trailer Reverse Steering system, so you can direct your trailer exactly where it needs to be.

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Your Worksite Retreat

Step inside these trucks and you’ll find all the luxury you need to rest up during break time and wind down after a long day on the worksite. Both trucks are available with leather-trimmed seating. In the Crew Cab of the Ram 1500, however, your squad can stretch out into 45.2 inches of rear legroom. The crew cab of the Tundra is limited to just 41.6 inches.

The infotainment systems work to keep you in touch with your crew, clients, and even your friends and family. They come with responsive touchscreen displays that give you command of shared features like:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Bluetooth®
  • Android Auto™
  • HD™ Radio
  • SiriusXM®

If you’re looking to whistle while you work, do it along with the immersive audio quality of the 19-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System available with the Ram 1500. The JBL® sound system in the Tundra falls short with just 12 speakers.

Which Is Better: Ram 1500 or Toyota Tundra?

The competition is a tight one between these two intelligent trucks. If you’re looking for the more spacious and powerful truck, however; the Ram 1500 is the clear choice for your next task in Saco, Portland, or Scarborough, Maine.
