2020 Toyota Tundra Vs. 2020 Ford F-150: Which One Is Right for Me?

Posted at Fri, Dec 27, 2019 11:15 AM

When searching for a full-size pickup that can easily accommodate all your requirements, there are really only two choices from among the 2020 lineup: The Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150. Both of these trucks are dependable and have utility in spades, but which of them will best suit you? In order to help you make an informed decision, we here at Westbury Toyota have taken it upon ourselves to write up a comprehensive comparison between the two trucks. After reading it over, it will be clear which of the pickups is the best choice for you.

How Do They Measure Up, Performance-Wise?

A full-size pickup should have all the get up and go that you need, as well as enough ruggedness to handle the tougher jobs you might need it to do. Both the Tundra and the F-150 are at the top of their game, but which has more to offer overall? Take a look at the table below:

2020 Toyota Tundra 2020 Ford F-150
5.7-liter (L) aluminum i-FORCE V8 engine 3.3-L V6 engine
381 horsepower (hp) 290 hp
401 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque 265 lb-ft of torque

As you can see, the Tundra is definitely packing more power under the hood. Toyota’s pickup also pulls ahead (no pun intended) when it comes to towing, too. The Tundra has a maximum towing capacity of 10,100 pounds (lbs.) and a payload capacity of 1,660 lbs., whereas the F-150 has a towing capacity of 7,400 lbs. and a payload capacity of 1,990 lbs.

While there’s currently no EPA mileage estimates for the 2020 F-150, there is for the Tundra and as the experts over at Car Gurus report, you are looking to get 13 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. The Tundra’s fuel tank also holds considerably more compared to that of the F-150: 38 gallons as compared to 26.

Enough Room for Cargo and Passengers Alike

It’s important a truck has enough room for whatever friends, family, and cargo you may have to ferry around on a daily basis. The F-150 is available with single, extended, and crew cabs, while the Tundra comes with the extended and crew configurations. In terms of bed size, both trucks come with 5.5 foot, 6.5 foot, or 8 foot options, letting you choose the size that will work best for you and your driving needs.

Which Gives You the Most in Standard Safety Features?

While neither Toyota nor Ford are slouches in the safety department, it is Toyota’s Tundra that offers the most in standard safety features, including Driver Attention Alert and a Rear Stabilizer Bar in the TRD Pro. Additional standard safety tech that you will find in the 2020 Tundra includes:

  • Toyota Safety Sense Suite (Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control)
  • Star Safety System (Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and Smart Stop Technology)
  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Toyota Care (no cost maintenance plan with roadside assistance)

When it comes to ensuring that you and your passengers are kept safe without an additional cost, the Tundra is the truck to beat.

Which One Is Right for You?

As our comparison shows, both the 2020 Tundra and the F-150 are at the top of their class for a reason. However, in our opinion the Tundra is the better choice not only because of the power it provides, but also because it has the extra room needed to be either a family or work vehicle (or both), and because it has an abundance of the best standard safety features to be found.
