Toyota Tundra

Pros

  • Handles well on-road and around town.
  • Great off-road capabilities built into the TRD Pro version, which debuted in 2015.
  • Strong and smooth V8 engine.
  • Spacious interior.

Cons

  • Poor fuel economy.
  • Available with only a V8 (no V6 or diesel option).
  • Ride quality – especially with an empty bed – isn’t great.
  • Interior feels cheap relative to competitors.

Ram 1500

Pros

  • Optional air suspension is comfortable and offers multiple ride heights.
  • Refined and comfortable interior.
  • Fuel-sipping diesel engine is unique in its class for this model year.
  • Plenty of storage options inside and outside the truck.

Cons

  • Gets expensive when loaded with options, including the diesel engine.
  • The gas V8 has sub-par fuel economy.
  • The rotary knob to shift the transmission is awkward and hard to use.

Autolist's Take

Toyota is known for bulletproof reliability – particularly with their trucks. But the automaker doesn’t update its trucks as often as other brands, so it lags behind many of its competitors in a variety of areas. Ram trucks can be less reliable than Toyotas over the years but Rams offer a wide range of advantages including interior comfort and refinement, fuel economy, practicality and ride quality. We say ‘Buy the Ram.’
