Dodge and Toyota manufacture two of the top selling trucks in Canada, the Dodge Ram 1500 and the Toyota Tundra. Both trucks say they'll help you get the job down; they both also are award winners too-although for very different reasons. The Dodge Ram, for example, has been named 2015 Green Truck of the Year by Green Car Journal. The Toyota Tundra, on the other hand, was recently named by CanadianBlackBook.com as the full-size pick-up truck that has the best retained value.
Let's look at some more specifics that set these two apart.
Aside from engine size, towing capacity and anti-lock brakes (which are all areas of similarity) both of these trucks excel in different areas which make for a great comparison. Here are a few other aspects where they differ from one another.
Insurance rates are determined based on a number of factors. The make and model of a vehicle is just one factor that insurance companies take into consideration. Let's take a look at some other factors.
To get a sense of what the approximate insurance costs may be, for a 35-year old driver with a clean driving and insurance history (no tickets, accidents, licence suspensions, cancellations etc.) showed that there is not much difference in what you could end up paying in premiums; the difference between the Dodge Ram 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra insurance costs came in on average at about $30 with the Toyota Tundra costing a bit more to insure.
When shopping around for insurance quotes, keep in mind that every driver is different. Comparing insurance quotes is a great way to get an idea of what you may be paying. Whether you have one or multiple vehicles in mind, with just a few details you are able to compare insurance rates from a variety of companies. From there you are able to pick which vehicle suits your needs and fits your budget (not to mention towing capacity).
