When it comes to the full-size pickup truck class, traditional brands like Ford and Chevy take up most of the headlines. While these brands have undoubtedly earned these headlines, the Herculean Toyota Tundra will go toe-to-toe with any of the old guard and will hold its own. A muscular dominant design will make the Toyota Tundra stand out amid the competition and we think you will find that the Toyota pickup will hold its own in the 2016 Toyota Tundra vs 2016 Ford F-150 comparison. Stop by J. Pauley Toyota today to see first hand what the Toyota Tundra is capable of.
A dominant force on the road or the jobsite, the Toyota Tundra is an All-American pickup truck that is manufactured exclusively in Texas and employs a power-packed V-8 engine lineup. Even standard Toyota Tundra editions employ a 310-horsepower 4.6-liter V-8 that will overpower entry-level pickups offered by Ford and Chevy. Massive amounts of power are complemented by a bold exterior design and a spacious, well-equipped interior that provides a smooth, comfortable ride no matter how far off the beaten path you may be.
Power, Performance, Value and Versatility Highlight the 2016 Toyota Tundra
A real contender in the half-ton pickup truck class, the 2016 Toyota Tundra provides explosive power from a V-8 power core. The pride of the Toyota Tundra power lineup is a 381-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 that will tow a massive 10,500 pounds and will overpower the 365-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 employed by elite Ford F-150 editions. Drivers who are looking for adrenaline-fueled thrills and will only settle for the growl of a V-8 under the hood will love what the Toyota Tundra has to offer.
Another asset of the Toyota half-ton in our 2016 Toyota Tundra vs 2016 Ford F-150 comparison is value. Available in six well-equipped trim levels, the Toyota Tundra can be tailor-made to fit your needs and lifestyle. A standard Toyota Entune interface will provide you with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, integrated backup camera, Bluetooth hands-free capabilities and Siri Eyes Free technology. While the Ford F-150 provides similar trim levels, the list of standard features falls short of that found in the Toyota Tundra. When you take a closer look at price, you will find that the elite Toyota Tundra Platinum trim priced at $46,530 is a better value than the similarly-equipped Ford F-150 Limited priced at $58,770.
Work hard, play harder -- is a mantra for many Toyota Tundra owners to live by and is illustrated by the explosive Toyota Tundra TRD Pro trim. Built to dominate the trail, the Tundra TRD Pro will outlast the competition with an arsenal of high-performance improvements that include Bilstein high-performance shocks, a refined off-road suspension system as well as TRD wheels and tires. Models like the Ford F-150 FX4 while capable on the trail, lack the necessary off-road DNA to handle extreme terrain.
