Looking at the exterior of these two pickups, it's easy to see that the RAM 1500 holds a more aggressive stance and has a larger footprint. The chrome detailing and width of the RAM offers a sense of power, while the Toyota's smaller and more upright appearance is slightly less traditional. Under the hood, the smaller engine in the 2016 Tacoma offers half the horsepower, but without the benefit of better fuel economy. With 159 horsepower and only 23 miles per gallon on the highway, the Tacoma stands well behind the 305 horsepower and 25 highway miles per gallon offered on the 2016 RAM 1500.   

The interior design of the 2016 RAM 1500 is more comfortable and traditional than the modern and odd controls of the 2016 Tacoma. The center stack features a first-row LCD screen in the Tacoma and the RAM 1500, but only the Tacoma offers standard Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls.  Both the RAM 1500 and the Toyota Tacoma come with a six-speaker audio system and a standard auxilary input jack for easy enjoyment of your favorite music through electronic devices. Hearty vinyl seating trim comes standard on the RAM 1500, while the Tacoma's standard seating trim is cloth. It's easy to see that the interior comfort and overall design of the 2016 RAM 1500 outshines that of the smaller 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
