It’s easy to see the difference between the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tacoma when they’re parked beside each other. While the Tacoma is a more streamlined and smaller option, the Ram 1500 is a heavy-duty pickup that is both wider in its exterior and offers more room inside as well. Its wide stance gives it a bigger turning radius and makes it more apt to handle off-road environments safety. The Ram 1500 in the extended cab variant lets your passengers enjoy all the room they’d ever want inside its luxurious cabin.
Designed as both a premium truck option and as an imposing performance machine, the Ram 1500 is your ultimate choice with all its utility design and performance.

While the Tacoma may be a suitable pickup for basic needs, it ends up being a lower imitation of what the Ram 1500 exceeds at on higher and more dependable levels. There’s a reason why the Ram 1500 has enjoyed such Best-in-Class declarations, for everything from towing, seat leg room, to cabin quietness. It’s a well-rounded truck that isn’t intent on just succeeding well in one aspect, but a well-rounded pickup that exceeds the highest levels across its abilities.
