2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra

Drivers looking for a full-size, light-duty truck want premium towing and hauling as well as practical driving advantages like fuel economy. Both of the models in this 2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra comparison can offer drivers plenty of quality driving, but we like the value that the Ford option brings to the road.

The 2018 Ford F-150 has a significantly lower starting price than the 2018 Toyota Tundra. Part of that is that these two models have different base body styles, and that the Toyota truck come standard with a V-8 engine. However, that doesn’t offer as much of an advantage as you might think. The base 3.3-liter V-6 on the 2018 Ford F-150 offers 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. This stacks up competitively against the 310-horsepower 4.6-liter V-8 that comes standard on the 2018 Toyota Tundra model. The Ford truck goes on to offer other advantages.

Fuel Economy and Towing Advantages on the 2018 Ford F-150

While the Ford truck can offer a lot of value right out of the gate in this 2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra comparison, moving into more advanced trims and engine options can also pay off. The 2018 Toyota Tundra is available with two V-8 engine options, but the 2018 Ford F-150 offers six different engines which can meet different driver needs. While the base V-6 mileage of this truck (20 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway) is naturally better than the base V-8 engine on the Toyota model, even the Ford’s V-8 engine offers a slight fuel economy advantage. This can save drivers money when it comes to refueling.

Another, maybe even more important advantage that the 2018 Ford F-150 has is its sheer capability. This truck has the largest towing capability in this comparison. When properly equipped, this model can tow up to 13,200 pounds. That’s a bold number that is impressively higher than the maximum of 10,200 pounds of towing available on the 2018 Toyota Tundra.
