Finding the right pickup truck can take some time. After all, you want to make sure that the vehicle gives you everything that you want, and then some. Two of the most popular pickup trucks on the road today are always getting compared—the 2016 Toyota Tundra vs. the 2016 Ford F-150. While both trucks are great companions when you hit the road, only one of them is the right choice for your Savannah and Hilton Head Island driving needs. Take a look at how the new Tundra delivers more for drivers and outshines the competition.


When you’re driving a pickup truck, you want to know that you’re getting the best possible power at all times. When you opt for the Tundra, you’ll be getting better power and a better overall performance. The 2016 Toyota Tundra comes standard with an i-FORCE 4.6L V8 engine that delivers 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque with six-speed automatic transmission. This way, you can navigate those roads quickly and efficiently. If you want more power, you can opt for the i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine that generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain is sure to impress drivers looking to dominate the road.

If you opt for the 2016 Ford F-150, you’ll receive one of four engines. The 2.7L EcoBoost® engine offers 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine delivers 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque—not nearly as impressive as what the Tundra can offer. You can also get the 3.5L EcoBoost that offers 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque or the 5.0L Ti-VCT that generates 385 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. Even though some of these engines offer more power, they’re still an upgrade, so you’ll have to pay more for more power. So if you want the vehicle that gives you more power and dominates the road for an affordable price, the Tundra is the better choice.

Hauling and Towing Capabilities

The 2016 Toyota Tundra outshines the 2016 Ford F-150 in terms of towing capacity. The Tundra has a max towing capacity of 10,300 pounds compared to only 7,600 pounds of the Ford. This allows you to haul so much more, whether you’re looking for a masculine pickup truck to handle your workload or something that can take your family on a cross-country adventure.

Besides towing capacity, the Tundra also comes with plenty of features that make hauling a breeze. The TOW/HAUL mode holds lower gears for longer periods of time, so your pickup truck will keep the right gear the entire time you’re towing cargo. Trailer Sway Control controls engine torque to stabilize your trailer. This gives you the confidence to hit the road without worrying about what you’re hauling. Finally, the Integrated Trailer Brake Controller allows you to adjust braking on the trailer based on its overall weight, giving you better maneuverability and control.

If you need to haul cargo that doesn’t need to be towed, you can take advantage of the larger cargo box area on the Tundra. Sitting at 1 inch longer and 1 inch wider, you can experience more space for the items you need to carry with you.

When you choose the Tundra, you’ll get better choices when it comes to technology. The Entune Premium Audio with integrated navigation and App Suite allow you to connect your smartphone directly to your pickup truck so you can stream music, make phone calls, and even use your favorite apps. This vehicle also comes standard with a rearview camera and multi-information display. The F-150, on the other hand, comes standard with SYNC® technology that allows you to stream music and make calls, but if you want the excitement that Entune offers, you’ll have to upgrade to SYNC 3.
