2015 Toyota Tundra vs 2015 Ford F150
In our opinion, the Toyota Tundra is one of the most overlooked trucks on the market. Everybody talks about the “big three,” and that those three are the Ford F150, Chevy Silverado 1500 and RAM 1500. Well we disagree, and we thought we’d prove to you just how great the Tundra is by pitting it against the so-called best truck in North America and comparing the 2015 Toyota Tundra vs. 2015 Ford F150. The two full-size trucks are more similar than one might imagine, and the Tundra has a few advantages that might surprise.
Advantages of the 2015 Toyota Tundra
Right from the get go, the perhaps surprising advantages of the Toyota Tundra can be seen in the table above. The full-size Toyota truck has just about 100 more horsepower than the “big three” Ford, and almost 150 extra foot-pounds of torque. Power generally leads to two things, more speed and more capability. This big of an advantage in power, for the Tundra, will mostly be seen in the way of speed as the Ford’s capabilities aren’t that far off.
As you can see in the table, the Ford F150 can actually tow an extra 200 lbs. than the Tundra, so even though its power is lacking it’s still powerful enough to tow a bit extra. But the Tundra fires back with a hefty advantage in payload, being able to cart around an extra 180 lbs. in the bed. That means you’ll be able to handle a wider array of cargo with your truck, again improving the capability and even versatility of the Toyota Tundra.
So as you can see, in our opinion, the 2015 Toyota Tundra is an extremely underrated truck in the full-size market. An abundance over power, dripping with capability, and oozing with style, this would make the perfect truck for any driver, no matter the needs.
