Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra Power and Possibilities
When it comes to a vehicle of this class, a commanding engine is a must. In this respect, neither the 2021 Ram 1500 nor the Toyota Tundra hold back. Both trucks have 5.7L V8 motor options with the Ram 1500 outputting 395 horsepower, while the Tundra achieves 381 horsepower.
Additionally, the Ram 1500 has a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque and an available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine—perfect for long stretches behind the wheel with minimal gas station interruptions. On the other hand, the Tundra only has one powertrain, so you won’t have a choice of different power blends and towing capabilities.
The Toyota Tundra’s single powertrain spans six trim levels. The Ram 1500, however, sports eight trim levels and five engine configurations, all ranging in power and efficiency. So, if you want more power and trim options, the Ram 1500 is prepared for you to take the helm.
