2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra

Proudly Serving Olive Branch, MS

Available in three cabin designs, the 2018 Ford F-150 is a reliable pickup truck that combines raw power with smart sophistication. The lineup consists of seven robust trims, including the Raptor. Also available with multiple cab styles, the 2018 Toyota Tundra is a pickup truck that comes in five editions. Offering six engines, including a diesel engine, the F-150 leads its class in performance and capabilities. The Tundra is available with three gasoline engines that can’t match the attributes of the EcoBoost and Ti-VCT technology. Both pickup trucks roll on a 4×4 drive, but the F-150 has better off-road features.

Powertrain

Rated at 395 horsepower, the 5.0 L Ti-VCT engine is the only V8 option in the 2018 Ford F-150. The much smaller 2.7 L EcoBoost engine delivers 325 hp and 400 lb-ft. If you want a lot more torque, select the 3.5 L EcoBoost unit. Having a V6 design, both of the EcoBoost engines run on turbochargers. There’s also a high-output edition that whips out 450 hp and just more than 500 lb-ft. Running on 93 Octane gasoline, this EcoBoost engine is standard in the Raptor trim. An all-new diesel engine with the Power Stroke label is also available for the 2018 F-150. Compatible with B20 diesel, this six-cylinder engine cranks out up to 440 lb-ft. Whether it’s equipped with the 4.6 L or 5.7 L i-FORCE engine, the 2018 Toyota Tundra doesn’t rival the capabilities of this powerful Ford pickup truck. You also won’t find turbocharged or diesel engines in the Tundra. However, the i-FORCE powertrain is versatile enough to operate on E85 fuel.

Handling

The gearbox in most of the 2018 Ford F-150 models comes with 10 fixed speeds. Featuring five settings, the automatic transmission system is ready to handle tough challenges. You could select the EcoSelect Mode to optimize fuel economy on the highway. The Snow-Wet Mode improves traction on slippery surfaces, and the Tow-Haul is tuned for towing tasks. You only get six gear speeds in the 2018 Toyota Tundra’s automatic transmission system with electronic controls. This conventional transmission doesn’t come with multiple modes. A 4×4 drive system with a locking rear differential is available in the 2018 F-150 and Tundra. The AdvanceTrac and Hill Descent Control balance this Ford pickup truck on elevated terrains. Additionally, the signature FOX Racing Shox components give the Raptor model class-leading capabilities off the road. This limited-edition vehicle also comes with the Torque-on-Demand technology that boosts handling on rugged trails.

Utility

The 2018 Ford F-150 is capable of towing more than 12,000 pounds. You can use the Pro Trailer Backup Assist to safely guide a heavy trailer into a desirable spot. An electronic knob makes it easy to control the movement of the attached trailer. This robust Ford truck also supports a payload of more than 3,200 pounds. You can remotely lock and unlock the tailgate to gain access to the bed, which is available in a maximum length of 8 feet. If you plan to take long trips in the Ford F-150, get a model that comes with a 36-gallon fuel tank. Similarly, some of the 2018 Toyota Tundra trims have 38-gallon fuel tanks. However, the F-150 is hard to beat in towing and overall utility.
