We’ve talked about it before and we’ll probably talk about it again, but if you know anything about the pickup truck market here in the North American automotive industry, you know there’s what many refer to as the “big three.” This includes the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500 and RAM 1500. We, personally, think this is a bunch of malarkey, as the Toyota Tundra outshines all three trucks in many different aspects.
We figured we’d see how the two 2020 model years of these pickup trucks measure up to one another, by pitting the 2020 Toyota Tundra vs 2020 Ford F-150. Check out the table below for a side-by-side comparison, then keep reading for more analysis.
2020 Toyota Tundra
2020 Ford F-150
|381 HP||Horsepower||290 HP|
|401 lb-ft.||Torque||265 lb-ft.|
|10,100 lbs.||Towing Capacity||7,400 lbs.|
|1,660 lbs.||Payload||1,990 lbs.|
As you can see by taking a glance at the table up above, the two pickup trucks are quite comparable to one another, but when comparing the CrewMax to the SuperCrew, the F-150 is a little outclassed. Starting from the top of the table, the Tundra kicks things off with a sizable advantage in power by generating an extra 91 horsepower more than the big-three truck. Things don’t get any better for the F-150 in row two, as the Tundra also generates an extra 136 pound-feet of torque. That’s a lot of extra power on both fronts!
While some F-150 trucks do having trailering ratings surpassing 13,000 pounds, in this base-vs-base comparison, the Tundra certainly out-delivers the F-150 thanks to an extra 2,800 pounds of capacity. However, the final row does showcase a bit of reprieve for the Ford pickup, as it can hold an extra 300 pounds of weight in its trailer.
This should give you a good glimpse into how these two trucks measure up to one another, though if you’d like details on other trims and how they compare, we might be able to answer those questions here at the sales desk. Don’t hesitate to give us a call!
