2016 Ram 1500 vs. Its Competition

2016 Ram 1500 EdoDiesel HFE

Ford, GM and Ram dominate the full-size pickup market with strong products.

The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra were revamped for 2014 with attractive styling, strong V-6 engines and a fuel-efficient 5.3-liter V-8.

The Ford F-150 was new for 2015 featuring aluminum construction for reduced weight and better fuel efficiency.

The Toyota Tundra struggles with an awkward, chunky style inside with weird ergonomics, as well as a less proportionally on-the-mark interpretation of the big-rig look, and its interior appointments feel a little more cost-cut.

The Nissan Titan is all new for this year.

Quick Specs
8.2
The 2016 Ram 1500 will win over full-size truck buyers looking for a diesel offering and an opulent interior, but safety scores need improvement.
8.0
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado takes a traditional truck path but counters that with a comfortable, refined interior and a mother lode of technology.
8.6
The 2016 Ford F-150, fresh off a transformation that made it leaner yet much-improved in most ways, gets new Sync 3 infotainment and trailer-backup wizardry.
8.2
Rugged, handsome simplicity sums up the attraction of the 2016 GMC Sierra, which charms in many ways and doesn't overcomplicate in any.
8.0
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a smart pick for semi-heavy pulling power, but if you rarely or never tow big trailers, you're better served by a light-duty pickup.
7.6
The 2016 Toyota Tundra has authentic truck talent, but ultimately its powertrain choices, fuel economy, and configurations are limited, compared to domestic rivals.
