Most pickup trucks boast high power and performance, but how can you tell which one will truly meet your needs? At Dadeland Dodge, your local Miami RAM dealership, we know how difficult it can be to weed through the specs and features to find the perfect pickup for you. In this comparison, we'll look at two of the leading pickup trucks on the market: the 2019 RAM 1500 and the 2019 Toyota Tundra.

Performance
The engine in the base model of the 2019 Toyota Tundra is more powerful than the engine in the base model of the 2019 RAM 1500. However, the RAM 1500 offers options that let you balance your need for power versus your need for fuel efficiency. Both the Toyota Tundra and the RAM 1500 offer three engine options, but only the RAM 1500 offers 8-speed automatic transmission for a smoother ride. While the standard engine is more fuel efficient in the RAM 1500, you can opt for upgrades to more powerful engines for better performance and handling, while the base model of the Tundra only offers one type of engine. 

Connectivity
Both the 2019 RAM 1500 and the 2019 Toyota Tundra offer an array of infotainment features to keep you connected while you drive. The 2019 RAM 1500 offers a Uconnect® 4C infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen - one of the largest available! The Uconnect® 4C system offers available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to keep you connected to your music, texts, calls, and navigation while you drive. The 2019 Toyota Tundra offers an Entune infotainment system with only a 7-inch touchscreen display. The Tundra also lacks compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, limiting connectivity with your phone.

Towing Capability
Both the 2019 Toyota Tundra and the 2019 RAM 1500 offer towing capabilities. However, the RAM 1500, when equipped with powerful HEMI® engine, can tow up to 12,750 pounds of trailer weight. To maximize safety and reliability, the available Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension system keeps your load level based on driving conditions. The 2019 Toyota Tundra maxes out at 10,200 pounds of trailer weight and doesn't offer an advanced leveling system. 

The Verdict is…the 2019 RAM 1500!
While the 2019 Toyota Tundra offers a more powerful standard engine, the 2019 RAM 1500 offers more options to balance power, performance and fuel efficiency. The RAM 1500's Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension also provides enhanced towing capability with greater safety. Our team at Dadeland Dodge, your local Miami RAM dealership, we can help you choose the trim level and features most important to you to make sure you drive away happy!
