2018 Toyota Tundra

One of the RAM 1500 model’s biggest competitors is the Toyota Tundra. While both trucks offer an impressive list of features and capabilities, the new RAM 1500 comes out on top in several areas.

Toyota Tundra details at a glance:

  • Two engine options, no diesel
  • Max 10,100-lb towing capacity
  • Siri® Eyes Free

For example, the 2018 Toyota Tundra only offers two engines under the hood, and neither is a diesel option. This new Toyota truck also renders a top towing capacity of just 10,100-lb, which is a full 520-lb difference than the RAM 1500. Although the Toyota Tundra offers various in-car functions with its Entune™ infotainment, it lacks by not including smartphone integration like the RAM 1500; it only features Siri® Eyes Free.
