2019 Toyota Tundra vs Ford F-150: Power and Performance

2019 Toyota Tundra PerformanceThe 2019 Tundra offers two powerful i-FORCE engines. The standard 4.6L i-Force V8 engine is compact, but Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing allows it to crank out up to 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque.

The available i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine is designed to ramp up the production of the Tundra while beefing up its power. It delivers up to 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. It’ll cut your biggest jobs down to size in no time.

The Ford F-150 offers multiple engine options, as well. However, if you’re looking for more standard power, the F-150 may not cut it. The standard 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine of the Ford F-150 only produces 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.

Lastly, if you’re looking to finish the job before you have to stop for gas, the Tundra has an available 38-gallon fuel tank. Even the upgraded 26-gallon fuel tank of the Ford doesn’t come close.

Which Truck Handles Better?

You need a truck you can rely on, and a big part of that is how it handles the road in front of it. The Toyota Tundra offers the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) Sport Package. Add it to the Tundra, and you’ll have a pickup that’s built to rule the road.

The TRD Sport Package enhances the already aggressive look of the Tundra by adding 20-inch alloy wheels. It also features brighter, more efficient LED headlights and LED fog lights.

The TRD Sport Package also adds high-performance Bilstein® shocks and Sport-tuned anti-sway bars. Together, these additions make up a highly engineered system that gives the Tundra better turning response, flatter cornering, and a more exhilarating ride.

The F-150 has an available Sport package, as well. It adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, halogen fog lamps, and SPORT box decals. However, it lacks the sport-tuned system offered by the Toyota Tundra.
