Reason #3 Why the Ram Truck is Better than Tundra

3. Power and capabilities – Thanks to the 5.7L Hemi, the Ram 1500 offers more power and torque than the 5.7L iForce V8 from the Toyota Tundra.  The Hemi makes 390 horsepower and 407lb-ft of torque while the Tundra has just 381 horsepower and 401lb-ft of torque – and the advantage is clear for those […] More »

There weren’t a ton of Corvettes at the show–all the builders are presumably waiting for the C7–but that doesn’t mean America’s Sports Car was absent.
