The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ram 1500 is a half-ton favorite, with fuel economy and ride comfort being its main strengths once again. The 2015 Toyota Tundra looks interesting enough, but lacks the sophisticated drivetrains that you'll find in its competitors.
