Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tundra: The (Power) Struggle Is Real

Ok. So now we’re down to it. What’s under the hood? What’s under the frame? What’s under your foot? As a brand that prides itself on turnkey reliability for the long haul, the Toyota Tundra uses a proven 381-hp 5.7L V-8 paired to a six-speed automatic transmission on all models. RWD is standard, and 4WD is an option.

Ford pickups will offer flexibility. But our take on that is, they’ll try to keep the price down. And give you less than adequate performance as a consequence. To get anything meaningful out of the Ford F-150, you’ll have to pay extra for the V-8.

So, where does that put you with the Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tundra in terms of pulling power? When properly equipped, the Toyota Tundra can haul up to 10,200 lbs of fun behind it, while the Ford F-150 will make you pay extra for the engine that can beat the Toyota Tundra & tow up to 11,300 lbs.

FAQs Beyond the Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity

Now that we’ve listed the ways you can style and customize your pickup, we’ve also got a sense as to what these bad boys have under the hood. But we all know there’s more to owning a pickup truck than just power and style. But if you want to do a deep dive on towing, you can do so on our Toyota Tundra towing capacity spec page. That aside, here’s a list of other helpful insights to the many questions we get down here at our Toyota Center:

Is the Toyota Tundra bigger than the Ford F-150?

The answer to this question depends on how you put yours together with your chosen cab, bed length, and so on. The Ford F-150 can be anywhere from 209.1″ to 250.3″ long, while the Toyota Tundra starts at an impressive 228.9″ and stretches out to 247.8″.

How long will a Ford F-150 last?

There’s an acronym out there for Ford. But all kidding aside, the Ford F-150 is a really solid truck. You should expect to get anywhere from 150k to 300k miles out of one, but keep in mind that so much depends on service, usage, and how many times you launch yours over 40′ sand dunes.

How long will a 5.7L V-8 Tundra engine last?

Travel anywhere south of the border or into an area where you can’t even see borders. Chances are, you’ll come across Toyota vehicles before you even find a town. When parts and service centers are hard to come by, people need to bet on a horse they know will go the distance. So much depends on owner maintenance and usage, but many Toyota Tundra V-8s see well over 400k miles with just routine oil changes, tune-ups, and quality fuel.
