2020 Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra

Let’s face it: If you’re buying a truck, you have a serious need for muscle—something you’ll find plenty of in the 2020 Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra.

But which one can offer Penn Yan, Geneva, and Watkins Glen drivers more? In this comparison, our team at Friendly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram is going to break it down for you.

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra Power

When it comes to a vehicle of this class, a commanding engine is a must. In this respect, neither the 2020 Ram 1500 nor the Toyota Tundra hold back. Both trucks have 5.7-liter V8 motor options with the Ram 1500 outputting 395 horsepower, while the Tundra achieves 381 horsepower.

Additionally, the Ram 1500 has a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque and an available 3.0-liter 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.

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra Safety

With such massive engines under their hoods, it’s no wonder these trucks have so much towing power. The engine options in the 2020 Ram 1500 have the following towing capacities:

Engine Option

Maximum Towing Capacity

3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 with eTorque

7,710 pounds

5.7-liter HEMI® V8

11,620 pounds

3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6

12,560 pounds

5.7-liter HEMI® V8

with eTorque

12,750 pounds

As you can see, the diesel motor and the V8 engine with available eTorque in the Ram 1500 can haul your large recreational boat or camper with ease. You may have to leave your toys behind with the Toyota Tundra since it can only tow up to 10,200 pounds when properly equipped.

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Interior

No matter which you choose, your truck’s bound to come with a lot of practical features. Nevertheless, comfort should be integral as well. The 2020 Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra don’t necessarily disagree on this point, but one’s certainly more balanced.

The Tundra is heavily weighted toward comfort driving, offering a considerable 8-inch entertainment suite. Cloth interior comes standard—ideal if you intend to only lightly use your truck. But when you’re out in the elements, you need something a little tougher.

The Ram 1500 is the working man’s truck. It’s got enough entertainment in the available 12-inch Uconnect® touchscreen for greater usability on the fast-paced highway. With its 40/20/40-split vinyl bench seat, behind-the-seat storage, and available all-weather interior features, it’s more than equipped to handle dirty jobs.

You Need a Truck That Won’t Quit on You

As lovely as the Penn Yan, Geneva, and Watkins Glen areas are, things can be a bit more rugged up here. You’re going to need a truck that doesn’t quit—something like the 2020 Ram 1500. The Toyota Tundra might not give you everything you need.
