At Koons Toyota Easton, we understand that car shopping is a lot different than it used to be.

And if you're looking into a new truck like the Toyota Tundra for sale at our Easton, MD dealership, you're going to find you often have to do a lot of research and legwork to accurately see how it compares to other models. Luckily, here at Koons Easton Toyota, we've done all that work for you. Read on to see how the find out how the new Toyota Tundra fares against models like the Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500.


Toyota Tundra vs. Ram 1500

  • Performance

    When it comes to pickup trucks, everyone wants power on demand right out of the gate. Happily, with its standard i-FORCE 4.6-liter V8 engine, the Toyota Tundra boasts up to 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque standard. The Ram 1500 comes up short with just a less powerful 3.6-liter V6 standard, only producing up to 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque

  • Towing Capacity

    Whether it's a cargo trailer for work or taking your boat out on the water in your downtime, you'll find that the Toyota Tundra can confidently tow heavy loads, capable of moving up to 10,200 pounds when properly equipped. By comparison, the Ram 1500's towing capacity maxes out at just 9,210 pounds.

  • Safety Features

    The Toyota Tundra comes with standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P technologies, including a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and more. By comparison, the only standard safety features you'll find on the Ram 1500 are the seatbelts.

Toyota Tundra vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

  • Standard Features

    With useful standard amenities like heated mirrors, a windshield wiper de-icer, rearview camera, and even a 7-inch high-resolution central touchscreen with integrated navigation, the Toyota Tundra is a truck that excels at providing you with comfort, convenience, and functionality on the open road. On the other hand, you'll find a very sparse set of standard features on the Chevy Silverado with only a comparable rearview camera on its entry level equipment list.

  • Bed Size

    It may seem like a minor detail, but when it comes to bed space, the Toyota Tundra beats the Chevy Silverado 1500 by a little bit. The longest bed available for the Silverado 1500 is  8 feet long, but while the Toyota Tundra has an available 8.1 foot-long bed. Again, it may seem like a minor detail, but when you need to haul extra-long cargo like lumber and piping, that extra length you get with the Toyota Tundra can make all the difference in the world.

  • Made in America?

    Each and every Toyota Tundra at our Easton, MD dealership was assembled in the U.S.A. at Toyota's San Antonio, TX truck plant. On the other hand, Chevy splits the production of its Chevy Silverado between Michigan, Indiana, and Mexico, so if it's important to you to buy an American-made truck, you'll want to go with the Toyota Tundra.
