2015 RAM 2500 vs. 2015 Toyota Tacoma Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the RAM 2500 than the Toyota Tacoma. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the RAM 2500 and the Toyota Tacoma.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The RAM 2500 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Tacoma, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the RAM 2500 is much higher than that of the Toyota Tacoma.

Dimensions
Since the RAM 2500 is much wider than the Toyota Tacoma, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the RAM 2500, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Tacoma.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the RAM 2500 does a much better job of transmitting the horsepower of the engine to the wheels than the Toyota Tacoma.

Handling
The RAM 2500 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Tacoma, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the RAM 2500 is clearly the choice over the Toyota Tacoma for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the RAM 2500 greatly outmuscles the Toyota Tacoma.

Utility
The RAM 2500 offers a little more seating capacity than the Toyota Tacoma, making it a better choice for those who often have a crew with them.

Warranty
The RAM 2500 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Tacoma.
