Are you looking for a pickup truck in the South Jordan, Draper, or Salt Lake City area? You might be trying to decide between a 2016 Toyota Tundra and a 2016 Ford F-150. But which one is right for you? Brent Brown Toyota is pleased to provide this handy comparison guide.

Interior

The 2016 Toyota Tundra comes with a standard double cab pickup. This gives you more hip room and legroom for you and your passengers than the Ford F-150. You’ll actually be able to carry six passengers in the cab without having to upgrade or sacrifice any additional storage space! The 2016 Ford F-150 comes with a standard regular cab, which only has room for three passengers–if you want to be able to bring the whole family with you, you’ll need to shell out extra for an extended cab. But the Tundra’s interior space benefits don’t stop there. The overhead console storage makes it easy to store your personal items safely inside the cabin, as does the seatback storage for maps, papers, and more. The F-150 doesn’t have this extra storage space for delicate personal items or papers.

That’s not all that you’ll get inside the Tundra. Many of its standard features, which are considered to be basic features on most vehicles, are costly extras or not available at all on the Ford F-150. The Tundra has power windows, power door locks, and power mirrors, along with a delayed power retention system so that you can operate these automatic features even when the power to the engine is turned off. You’ll also get an air filter in the cabin for those dusty or pollen-filled days. Reading lights are set into the ceiling so you can check your paperwork or read maps no matter what time it is. Finally, the steering wheel includes standard mounted controls so you can change the settings for your cruise control, audio, and more without ever taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road. The Ford F-150 not only doesn’t have standard power equipment; it also doesn’t have any of these features as a standard addition.

Technology

The 2016 Toyota Tundra features standard in-vehicle technology that the 2016 Ford F-150 either doesn’t offer at all or only offers as an add-on. You’ll get an audio system that includes a CD player, along with an MP3 player and an auxiliary input jack for your smartphone or other music player. This also includes Bluetooth hands free calling, which allows you to place calls via steering wheel-mounted controls and voice command without having to deal with the distraction of a cell phone. You can also issue commands to your stereo via voice command. In addition, you’ll get a multifunction remote, which lets you lock, unlock, start, and trigger the alarm on your Tundra without having to fumble for your keys or be physically inside the pickup. Start your Tundra in the chilly winter mornings before you even leave the house, and your pickup will be toasty warm for you! The Tundra also comes with cruise control, which the Ford F-150 doesn’t have, making it more difficult to keep your foot on the pedal consistently through long driving intervals. The Tundra also features a rearview camera, which can be a crucial part of backing into a small space with a big trailer or a big load–something the F-150 doesn’t include as a standard feature.

Power

The 2016 Toyota Tundra has 8 cylinders of pure power in its 5.7L i-Force aluminum engine, producing an impressive 381 hp and an incredible 401 lb-ft of torque. This means that whether you’re hauling a big load, towing something bulky, or just driving through difficult terrain that needs a lot of power to tackle, you’ll have what you need for the job ahead of you. This great power means that you’ll be able to tow an incredible 10,300 lbs. of cargo–that’s over five tons of gear! The Tundra also comes with a standard tow package and trailer hitch so that you can hook up your trailer without fuss. You’ll also get acoustic control induction on this engine, which means that you’ll get not only excellent fuel efficiency but a quieter engine into the bargain.

The 2016 Ford F-150 has only 6 cylinders on its 3.5L Ti-VCT engine, which comes with sequential multi-port electronic injection. It produces 282 hp and a measly 253 lb-ft of torque, making a mere fraction of the power that the Tundra can summon up. The top towing capacity is only 5,000 lbs. at a time, less than half of what the Tundra can handle. It also doesn’t come with a standard tow package, so you’ll have to shell out a little extra to be able to take advantage of the F-150’s towing capacity.
