Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150 are both full-size, body-on-frame half-ton pickup trucks, but the similarities end there.

The Tundra is a relative newcomer to the full-size pickup scene. It was initially released for the 2000 model year, and the current, second-generation model has been on the market since 2007. Its sales represent a very small part of the pickup market. 

The Ford F-150 has been the dominant sales leader among full-size pickups since 1977. It has also been the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the U.S. since 1982. During 2017, the F-150 outsold the Tundra by nearly 8 to 1.

Ford has kept the F-150 at the leading edge, with its switch to weight-saving aluminum body construction, the addition of driver assistance technologies, and using powerful and economical turbocharged V6 engines to replace most V8s. Ford also offers a diesel option in the F-150; the Tundra does not.

The Tundra ranks better in terms of reliability and average annual cost of repair. But the Ford F-150 is the leader among all pickup trucks, and its depth of options and modern feel will make it the better choice for most.
