In this battle of the full-size pickup trucks, it's the 2020 Ram 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra. They both have the power and capability to get the job done. The question is: Which truck has the blend of strength, innovation, and comfort you need to breeze through every task?

Our team at Lucas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is putting these two trucks to work, so you can see which one is the right fit for your worksite in Lumberton, Cherry Hill, and Delran, NJ. It's the Ram 1500 vs. the Toyota Tundra. Let's see who comes out on top!

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Efficient Power

Both trucks offer plenty of power, so you can take command of every worksite. If you're looking for the stronger V8 engine, you'll want to go with the Ram 1500. Its 5.7L HEMI® V8 generates 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The 5.7L i-FORCE V8 of the Tundra tops off at just 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque.

The superior power of the 2020 Ram 1500 translates into more pulling strength. It can tow up to 12,750 pounds, so you'll be able to haul industrial equipment to work or tow your boat down to the shore. The Toyota Tundra can only manage towing up to 10,200 pounds.

The eTorque Mild Hybrid System is exclusive to the Ram 1500. This technology replaces the traditional alternator with a battery-powered generator. It helps the 1500 achieve an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG. The Toyota Tundra, on the other hand, gets an EPA-estimated 13 city/18 highway MPG.

Versatility on the Worksite

If you're hauling lumber, gravel, landscaping stones, or other supplies that don't require a trailer, you'll want to be at the helm of a 2020 Ram 1500. It boasts a maximum payload of 2,300 pounds while the Toyota Tundra can only manage to hold up to 1,730 pounds in the truck bed.

It will be easier to load up and manage your cargo with the Ram 1500. It can be outfitted with a multifunction tailgate, which features 60/40 split, swing-away doors. The 1500 can also be equipped with the RamBox® Cargo Management System. It gives you a lit, lockable, and weather-resistant storage space for tools, fishing gear, and everything in between.

When you hit the road, both the Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra will inspire confidence with or without a trailer in tow. They offer a Blind Spot Monitoring system that will alert you when a vehicle is riding alongside you, so you can change lanes with ease.

2020 Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Interior

Step inside either truck and you'll have the comfort you need to gear up for a long day on the jobsite or wind down once it's done. You can sink into the available leather-trimmed upholstery and prepare for a job in any season with available heated and ventilated front seats.

You'll be able to stay connected in either the Ram 1500 or the Toyota Tundra. They both come with an intuitive infotainment system, but you may find the one in the 1500 more user friendly. It can be controlled and viewed via the available 12-inch touchscreen display. The available touchscreen in the Tundra is only eight inches.

If you like to whistle while you work, it will be a lot more fun with the Ram 1500. When your favorite song comes on, you can crank up the volume on the available Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System. It comes with 19 speakers. The available JBL® sound system of the Tundra only offers 12 speakers.

Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra: Who Works Harder?
