Which Pickup Will You Choose?

Most customers will be looking at a truck’s starting price before they sign on the dotted line. Both models offer powerful engines in the base trim, so there’s no need to overpay:

  • The 2017 Ram 1500 starts at $26,495 MSRP.

  • The 2017 Toyota Tundra starts at $30,120 MSRP.

As you can see, the Ram 1500 can save you over $3,000 when you purchase the base trim. The Ram also gives you plenty of areas to upgrade, including in the engine compartment. If you’d like a solid blend of performance and fuel economy, a diesel engine might be for you. The Ram 1500’s available 3.0L V6 diesel engine delivers a massive 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, enough for reviewer Edmunds to write that “…the engine’s ample torque makes a diesel-powered Ram 1500 feel pretty swift around town.” Unfortunately, the Tundra doesn’t give you the option to switch to a diesel engine. If you’d prefer the exciting horsepower of a gas engine, both models offer an upgraded V8, but one is more powerful than the other:

  • The RAM 1500 can be equipped with a 5.7L V8 engine that puts out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

  • The Toyota Tundra if offered with a 5.7L V8 that reaches 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque.

The Tundra gets close to the Ram 1500’s performance, but no cigar.
