F-150 vs. Tundra: Capability and Fuel Economy

If you need a truck that can handle the toughest jobs in , you’ll need a truck with a sizable towing capacity and payload capacity. Both the F-150 and the Tundra are powerful trucks, but as you can see below the F-150 maxes out at a higher towing capacity. However, that capacity is only available on the higher F-150 trim levels. You can decide whether the extra power is worth the price:

  • 3,325-pound maximum payload capacity

F-150 vs. Tundra: Off-Road Capabilities

What about if your work takes you off the beaten path? Then you’ll need the ability to go off-road. There are off-roading options on the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and the Ford F-150 Raptor. They both feature reliable components like heavy-duty FOX® shocks. However, with the extra cost of the F-150, you’ll have more driver-assist features like:

  • An electronic shift-on-the-fly system, allowing you to choose between two 4WD modes (4×4 low or high), as well as 2-wheel drive
  • Torque-On-Demand® transfer case
  • All-Terrain KO2 tires and available bead-lock-capable wheels
  • Terrain Management System
  • Trail Control

What do you think? Are these unnecessary extras on the F-150 Raptor, or do you need to have them? On the other hand, here are some of the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro features:

  • TRD dual black-chrome tipped exhaust system
  • 2-inch lift with TRD FOX® shock absorbers
  • 18-inch ford BBS® wheels
  • TRD Aluminum skid plate
  • Rigid Industries® LED fog lights
