Which hard working truck would you rather own and operate, the Ford F-150 or Toyota Tundra?
It’s a tough question, we know, which is why we decided to include it in our latest poll. Each one of these rigs has its own advantages so it won’t be an easy decision to make.
The Ford F-150 was all-new last year, riding on a tough, redesigned frame that features more high-strength steel than ever, but this is hardly its biggest innovation. No, the headlining features is a lightweight aluminum body that, depending on the model, saves upwards of 700 pounds compared to its predecessor. The top engine offering in this rig is a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that’s good for 365 horses and 420 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission available.
As for the Tundra, this tough Toyota’s top powertrain is a tried-and-true 5.7-liter V8. It’s got a horsepower edge over the Ford, putting out 381 ponies, but its torque rating falls a little short, measuring “only” 401 lb-ft. Just like the F-150, a six-ratio, self-shifting gearbox is the only option.
