Pictured right is the 2018 Ram 1500 with optional features.
Whether for work or leisure, you need a full-size pickup that can handle any job without fail. The 2018 Ram 1500, with a more than capable powertrain, plus the latest technology and an accommodating interior, definitely fits the bill. To demonstrate its value, your trusted dealership, Londonderry Dodge, is comparing it to the 2018 Toyota Tundra.
We’ll start with what is probably at the top of your list: performance. Both pickups offer a 5.7L V8 engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, the truck from Ram offers superior capabilities, churning out 395-hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque to the Tundra’s 381-hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. Thanks to the brawnier powertrain of the 1500, you’ll have a higher towing capacity1 of 10,620 lb., in comparison to the Toyota’s 10,100-lb. towing capacity1. Moreover, the Ram 1500 is also more efficient than Toyota’s pickup, achieving a 5.5/7.7 L/100km city/hwy2 fuel rating compared to the Tundra’s 5.5/7.2 L/100km city/hwy2. Small differences like these add up over time and mean that with the 2018 1500, you’ll not only be able to do more with your pickup, but you’ll also be saving money at the pump as well!
In addition to performance, of the two, only one of these trucks offers a greater variety of cabin entertainment: the 2018 Ram 1500. Inside this accommodating pickup, you’ll have access to available Apple CarPlay™3 and Android Auto™4, which allow you to connect your compatible device to use apps, send and receive texts, and access your personal playlists so you can enjoy your favorite music on the go. In addition, you also have the option to upgrade to available Mobile Wi-Fi and 4G LTE, to help cut down on your phone bill for using your device on the road. On the other hand, the Toyota Tundra does not offer any of these features at any trim level, meaning you’ll have fewer ways to stay connected away from home. When you’re driving to and from a job, it helps to have a truck that provides more entertainment.
The Ram 1500 also succeeds in several other important categories related to driver awareness and capacity. First, the 1500 has a greater bed volume than the 2018 Tundra, with 55 cubic ft. of space compared to just 50 cubic ft. in the Tundra. Indeed, after performance, how much a pickup can carry is perhaps one of the biggest deciding factors for drivers. Therefore, it’s clear that you’ll be able to take on more jobs and get more done with the larger bed of the 1500. Additionally, you’ll also have a better range of view in the truck from Ram, with a 161 degree viewing area5 compared to the Toyota’s 158 degree area5. Having increased visibility makes the Ram 1500 a safer drive.
After comparing the 2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra in Edmonton, AB, it’s no surprise that the truck from Ram is the victor. You can test drive this exciting truck at Londonderry Dodge, located on 13333 Fort Road NW. in Edmonton, AB. We hope you’ll visit soon!
