2015 Ram 1500 vs. 2015 Toyota Tundra
When Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, AB drivers compare the 2015 Ram 1500 with the 2015 Toyota Tundra, they’re looking for a truck with superior power, efficiency, and cargo-carrying potential. Taking these requirements into account, it’s no wonder that the new Ram 1500 is enjoying such immense popularity.
Trucks are working vehicles, and they need to work intelligently. That means going farther without paying more, so Ram has fitted the 2015 Ram 1500 with a class-exclusive 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. The only diesel engine available in this class, it’s capable of pumping out 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque even while making 11.6 L/100 km in the city and 8.4 L/100 km on the highway in 4×2 models.
The 2015 Toyota Tundra will see you spending far more time and money filling up. At best, you’ll get 15.9 L/100 km in the city and 12.3 L/100 km on the highway. Those are large differences that result in huge expenses.
The 2015 Ram 1500’s exceedingly well-balanced engine lineup is balanced out with the commanding 5.7L HEMI VVT V8, which does for power what the EcoDiesel does for efficiency. Capable of putting you in command of 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, this engine is an authoritative piece of automotive machinery.
The 2015 Toyota Tundra can’t match those figures. Even its optional 5.7L i-FORCE struggles and fails to keep up, with an output of 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Once you start driving, the drop in quality is immediately evident.
In addition to greater, smarter power beneath the hood, the 2015 Ram 1500 caters to Medicine Hat drivers in ways the 2015 Toyota Tundra doesn’t care to bother with. Interior convenience is crucial on long journeys, so the new 1500 has cruise control fitted as standard, unlike the new Tundra, despite the latter’s vastly inflated starting price.
You’ll also enjoy a RamBox cargo management system with the new Ram 1500. Celebrated for its innovative cargo-carrying solutions, the RamBox features:
Two lockable, drainable, and illuminated storage compartments to either side of the bed, each one large enough to hold a full golf bag.
A bed extender/divider, which allows Lethbridge drivers to customize their cargo area and carry oddly shaped objects with ease.
