2021 Ram 1500 vs 2021 Toyota Tundra
Posted on September 29, 2021
For years, Ram has been known for creating versatile and rugged pickup trucks. And this year is no different. The 2021 Ram 1500 offers a wide range of powerful and convenient features. There are also several new upgrades to this truck including a newly redesigned tailgate. Although this ruck is impressive, it certainly isn't in a class of its own. To show you how this truck stacks up against the competition, we have decided to compare it to another vehicle that is also at the top of the class. Here is a look at the 2021 Ram 1500 vs the 2021 Toyota Tundra.
Exterior Design Comparison
The Ram 1500 has an exterior that is not only stylish but is also specifically designed to be one of the most practical pickup trucks in its class. The truck is outlined in sleek lines and smooth curves that help to give it a head-turning style while also making it aerodynamic. To ensure that the body is able to slice through the air with ease, the Ram 1500 also features a Class-Exclusive air dam that automatically engages at high speeds and diverts the air to go around the truck. Other features such as the Active Air grille shutters and the Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension system also work together to make the vehicle even more aerodynamic which greatly improves overall performance.
This year, the Ram 1500 is also introducing its innovative multi-functional tailgate. The tailgate can easily open in a pull-down fashion, like a traditional tailgate. However, it also features a 60/40 split design which allows you to open it like a barn door, which gives you easier access to the bed.
The Toyota Tundra features a wide and tall body that is stylish and also outlined in sculpted lines. And while this design does help to give it a modern style, it does not help it when it comes to aerodynamics. The Tundra also does not come with an innovative multi-functional tailgate.
The Ram1500 comes with three different infotainment display sizes to choose from. The truck comes standard with a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment display. However, either an 8.4-inch or a 12-inch display is available. The displays come equipped with several handy apps as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity options. The extra-large 12-inch touchscreen display also comes with a built-in navigation system.
The Toyota Tundra only offers an 8-inch touchscreen display. The display does come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well.
Power and Performance
The Ram 1500 offers several powerful engines to choose from. Some of the engine options come with an innovative eTorque system which adds up to 90 lb.-ft of torque to the already impressive engine. The available engines that you can find on the 2021 Ram 1500 include:
- 3.6-litre V6 engine with eTorque delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft of torque.
- 5.7-litre Hemi V8 engine delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque
- 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine delivers up to 480 lb.-ft of torque
- 6.2-litre Supercharged Hemi V8 engine delivers up to 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft of torque.
The 2021 Toyota Tundra, however, only offers one engine option. The standard 5.7-litre V8 engine delivers up to 381 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque.
