2016 Ford F-150 XLT Towing

When considering everything you want in a pickup truck, you know that you'll need to put a lot of thought into choosing the right one. However, if you're comparing the 2016 Ford F-150 vs the 2016 Toyota Tundra, you won't have to waste too much time deciding. The new F-150 offers the best in performance, safety, and available features, completely knocking the Tundra out of the water. Take a look at what makes this vehicle a dominating force on the Arlington Heights and Schaumburg roads.


Power and Performance

2016 Ford F-150

As a pickup truck, both the new F-150 and Tundra were designed to move quickly and haul heavy equipment. However, while they are both capable of doing these things, the F-150 does it all better.


The F-150 has better range of power than the Tundra. Engine options for this vehicle include:

  • 3.5L V6 that generates 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque while getting 18 city mpg and 25 highway mpg
  • 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 that delivers 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque while getting 19 city and 26 highway mpg
  • 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that offers 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque while getting 17 city and 24 highway mpg
  • 5.0L V8 that generates 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque with 15 city and 22 highway mpg

The Tundra only offers two engine options, and since they are both V8s, you can expect lower fuel efficiency on these vehicles too.

  • 4.6L V8 engine that offers 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L V8 that generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque

Even if you opt for the higher engine on the Tundra, you still won't experience the same power that you'll get with the F-150's 3.5L EcoBoost engine.

The maximum towing capacity for the F-150 is 12,200 pounds while the maximum towing capacity for the Tundra is only 10,500 pounds.
