2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2019 Toyota Tundra
On the first day the redesigned Ram 1500 full-size pickup truck was available at the Billion Auto Group showroom, we knew the manufacturer had a bona fide hit on their hands. To illustrate just how good the new truck is, take a look at a comparison between the 2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2019 Toyota Tundra. The fully redesigned Ram 1500 has burst on to the scene for the new model with around 250 unnecessary pounds stripped away, which has not only helped with fuel economy, but also has not compromised top-end towing capacity figures. The 2019 Ram 1500 offers more performance, comparable fuel economy scores and a great wealth of connectivity options than its Toyota counterpart.

The 2019 Ram 1500 marks the debut of the truck’s fifth generation of production models. As the automaker’s newest pickup truck, it’s only natural that it is available with its most advanced technology. Most trim grades are available with an updated version of its Uconnect infotainment system and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Drivers and passengers will easily be able to integrate most of their favorite smartphone applications into their daily commute thanks to compatibility with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites. For comparison, the 2019 Toyota Tundra doesn’t offer any equipment remotely coming close to what is available on a large swath of 2019 Ram 1500 trims at Billion Auto Group. Finally, the 2019 Ram 1500 does very well with independent online reviews in term of usability and interior refinement scores.

One of the biggest additions to the equipment list of the 2019 Ram 1500 is its eTorque mild hybrid technology. Available on the V-6 and V-8 engines of the 2019 Ram 1500, the auxiliary electric motor makes both powertrains a little more fuel efficient. The entry-level 3.6-liter, V-6 engine will make 305 horsepower and 296 pound-feet of torque, which nearly equals the base V-8 engine offered by the 2019 Tundra, making 310 horsepower. For the most capability possible, the 2019 Ram 1500 can be equipped with a 5.7-liter, V-8 engine with a peak output of 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. Not only does this eclipse the output of the corresponding Tundra engine, it also offers more than 1,000 pounds of additional towing capacity, when properly equipped.
