In the five years since Toyota reworked the Toyota Tundra, automakers have made great strides in the area of fuel efficiency, knowing that every dollar you don't have to put into the tank is a dollar you can spend on your family, your business, or the things that make life worth it. Understandably, the 2019 Toyota Tundra is at the bottom of the list when it comes to full-size truck fuel economy, delivering just 15 miles per gallon in the city and 19 on the highway. The 2019 Ram 1500, meanwhile, achieves maximum fuel economy of 20 mpg city and 15 mpg on the highway.

Advantage: Ram 1500

The 2019 Ram 1500 just works harder than Toyota Tundra in that department, with a massive 11,750 pounds of maximum towing. The 2019 Tundra, meanwhile, doesn't even come close, managing only 10,200 pounds of max towing before it calls it quits.

Advantage: Ram 1500
A truck has that bed out back for a reason: it's supposed to be able to haul stuff!

The Ram can shoulder a maximum payload of 2,302 -- over two tons! The 2019 Tundra, meanwhile, tops out at just 1,730.

When there's work to do, or when you just want to put your foot down and have a little fun on Friday night, there's just no substitute for horsepower and torque. When it comes to both, the available Hemi V8 in the 2019 Ram 1500 just has more of it than the 5.7-liter V8 in the 2019 Toyota Tundra. The Tundra's 5.7-liter V8 makes a respectable 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. But the legendary 5.7-liter Hemi available in the 2019 Ram 1500 has the Tundra looking at the tailgate with a stout 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque (while still posting those Tundra-topping fuel economy numbers we listed earlier).
