Ram offers multiple engine options for the new Ram 1500, ensuring customers can access the ideal engine to suit their specific performance and towing needs. The standard engine option for the 2023 Ram 1500 is the 3.6L Pentastar with eTorque, delivering 305 horsepower and nearly 270 lb-ft of torque with 90 lb-ft of added launch torque. Upgrading to the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine increases the new 1500's output to 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, but opting for the optional eTorque mild-hybrid system brings an additional 130 lb-ft of launch torque. Exclusive to the TRX trim level is the supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine, offering a best-in-class output of 702 horsepower and up to 650 lb-ft of torque.

On the other hand, Toyota equips the new Tundra with a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine as standard, delivering output figures of 348 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. With select trim levels, the Tundra still has the same engine but gets 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. However, this Toyota full-size pickup truck also has a hybrid version of the 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine, increasing output to an impressive 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque.

Towing Capacity Comparison of Ram 1500 vs Toyota Tundra

With its standard 3.6L Pentastar engine, the Ram 1500 can have a towing capacity of 7,710 pounds. However, you must equip the Ram 1500 with the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine and proper equipment to benefit from its maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, which rivals many of the competition within the light-duty full-size pickup truck segment.

Even though the Tundra has a powerful standard engine, it only manages to achieve a standard towing capacity of 8,289 pounds, even when equipped with the tow package. To get greater towing power from the 2023 Tundra, you must choose a hybrid trim level, bringing additional output to support a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 pounds.
