MT: Ram Rebel vs Tundra TRD Pro

Recommended Posts

First, to the admins, I wasn't sure were to put this as it is a comparison so it isn't just Ram or Toyota.. so move it as necessary. Also, I assume you do not want entire articles copied and pasted so I'll start it and then post a link to the rest of it.


To the article.


"Ah, the off-road pickup. The niche's profile has really been elevated over the past half-decade even if sub-brands such as Pro-4X, FX4, and Z71 have propped the field up longer. Ford's F-150 SVT Raptor went on sale in 2009, and suddenly it seemed everyone wanted to be an off-road enthusiast. The Raptor was a flared-fender sight to behold, more accessible and generally easier to justify to a spouse than a heavy-duty Ram Power Wagon.


Naturally, every owner survey and OEM market research slideshow we've seen concedes a different reality. By and large, truck buyers don't care about off-roading. Or the off-roading occurs so infrequently it'd make you question the whole business of selling off-road trucks … but think of how cool you'd look behind the wheel! ..."


"The Rebel and TRD Pro are very close in everyday livability, comfort, and fuel economy (14.4-14.5 combined Real MPG). Ram puts out great, consumer-focused features, and the superbly appointed interior still heads the class. Off-roading isn't everything, but the fact is we'll happily take more (tiebreaking) off-road capability in the Tundra TRD Pro any day of the week.


Rad Tires Sure, all-terrain street tire treads are engineered to optimize grip in all conditions, but they also must be pleasing to the eye. Ram was so excited about the Toyo Open Country A/T II that it embossed the tread pattern into the seat inserts. The Tundra's optional BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO is a well-known quantity in the truck community. Owners have self-reported more than 100 million miles of use through tirerack.com surveys, nearly 8 million more than the second- and third-place tires combined (within the on-/off-road all-terrain category)."
