Picking the right truck is a big deal. It's the vehicle you'll be using each day, each week, around Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg. So you want to know you're getting the proper fit.

How can you be sure of this? Well, research is the best method. At Ray Price Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), research is something we specialize in.

So, if you're thinking truck, consider our 2021 Ram 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra comparison. The 1500 and Tundra often face off because of their similarities, but it's their differences that matter!

Towing and Payload

Getting right down to the nitty-gritty, many folks choose a truck based on the model's capability. If you anticipate some heavy-duty towing and hauling with your next truck, the 2021 Ram 1500 towing capacity will effortlessly out-class the Toyota Tundra.

When properly equipped with the right engine and accompanying features, the Ram 1500 can tow as much as 12,750 pounds while delivering a maximum payload of 2,300 pounds. The Tundra isn't particularly close in either category. For Toyota, the maximum towing capacity measures 10,200 pounds, while the maximum payload is a meager 1,730 pounds.

Standard Fuel Economy

As you're hard at work each day, the last thing you need to be thinking about is how many miles you have left before empty. There's a wide gap in MPG rating for the standard powertrains of the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra, too.

The sole engine of the Toyota Tundra is a hefty 5.7L V8 that returns an EPA-estimated 13 city/18 highway MPG. You'll be able to travel with much more confidence when choosing the Ram 1500, as it returns an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG with the standard V6 motor.

Engine Lineup

So, the 2021 Ram 1500 is more efficient and more capable than the competing 2021 Toyota Tundra. Why is this the case? It boils down to the engine offerings for each truck.

As stated, the Toyota Tundra comes with a single V8 engine that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Ram 1500 offers four engines, giving you much greater variety.

A 5.7L HEMI® V8 will make 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 horsepower. The V8 is a ridiculous supercharged 6.2L V8, generating 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

There are also a pair of V6 motors in the Ram lineup. The 3.6L V6 boasts 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 peaks at 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Ram 1500 Topples Toyota Tundra

If you want a heavy-duty, efficient, and versatile truck for work around Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg, the Ram 1500 is an easy choice. Competitors like the Toyota Tundra can't match the overall capability or performance of the Ram.
