Researching Engine Power

The pickup truck class is mostly known for its superior engine power, so learning about the available engines in the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra is a great way to determine which truck provides the performance you need.

Under the hood of the Ford F-150, you'll find a remarkable lineup of engines, including:

  • The standard 3.3L V6 engine puts out 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine generates 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 5.0L V8 engine produces 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine delivers 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
  • The H.O. 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine bumps up the power to an incredible 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

As for the Toyota Tundra, it has a trio of engines: a 4.6L V8, a 5.7L i-FORCE V8, and a 5.7L i-FORCE V8 with Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV). Despite its promising standard power-the 4.6L V8 generates 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque-its other two engines can barely produce much more power. The 5.7L i-FORCE V8 with FFV, the top-tier engine, maxes out at 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, which means you may not get all the power you want or need with the 2018 Tundra.

Getting the Right Towing Power

When you choose the Toyota Tundra and pick the right equipment, you'll have maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. While this amount of towing power is respectable, drivers who want even more towing power should take a look at the Ford F-150, which provides a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, when properly equipped.

Along with its towing prowess, the Ford F-150 also comes with plenty of useful towing features, such as Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. With this system, you simply rotate the knob in the direction you want the trailer to go, which helps you easily maneuver your trailer in tight spaces. It also has the smart trailer tow connector, which alerts you of any connectivity issues and lighting or battery problems.

Although the Toyota Tundra has some helpful towing features, like its Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and TOW/HAUL Mode, it can't tow as much as the Ford F-150 and doesn't have a system as simple yet effective as Pro Trailer Backup Assist™.

Pickup Tech Features

Both the 2018 F-150 and the 2018 Tundra offer excellent tech features to keep you informed and connected on your commutes and road trips.

With the Ford F-150, you'll have:

  • 8-inch LCD Productivity Screen: To stay on top of the Ford F-150's performance, this convenient screen displays key information on the instrument cluster, including fuel economy and towing data. You can even customize the home screen with six menu options.
  • SYNC Connect®: With this system, you can remotely start, lock, and unlock the Ford F-150; check on the vehicle status and fuel level; schedule times to remotely start your vehicle; and much more!
  • FordPass™: This one-stop app makes your days even easier by letting you find and reserve nearby parking, compare fuel prices at gas stations, schedule service, and much more!

With the Toyota Tundra, you'll also get a myriad of helpful technology features, such as available Integrated Navigation on the 7-inch touchscreen display. There's also the customizable 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display, which provides information like fuel economy, average speed, trip timer, and more. However, on the smaller screen, it'll be more difficult to view the key information.
