The Toyota Tundra versus the Ford F-150

  • The Tundra is available at a lower starting price than the F-150.
  • Standard full-power accessories set the Tundra further apart from the F-150, which asks drivers to pay more for power doors and windows.
  • Ford F-150 drivers also have to pay more for even the most basic creature comforts, like heated mirrors and a touchscreen display -- both of which some standard on the Tundra.
  • Right out of the gate, the Tundra delivers more power than the F-150, courtesy of a standard V8 engine versus the F-150's base V6.
  • A standard rearview camera is an asset on a pickup truck. Only the Tundra delivers, as the F-150 doesn't come equipped with a standard backup camera.

The Toyota Tundra versus the Ram 1500

  • The Tundra comes equipped with your choice of two V8 engines, while the standard setup on the Ram 1500 is a V6.
  • The Tundra's beefier base engine also makes for more power than the Ram's V6.
  • The 2017 Tundra can shoulder more cargo with a payload of up to 2,080 pounds, while the Ram falls short.
  • The base Ram 1500 models are very basic, and you have to climb several trims to get the same technological necessities that the Tundra offers as standard, like a touchscreen infotainment system and a rearview camera.

The Toyota Tundra versus the Silverado 1500

  • Again, the 2017 Tundra seriously overshadows the Silverado with its standard V8 power (310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque). The 2017 Silverado comes equipped with a less impressive V6 that maxes out at 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque.
  • Even the Silverado's optional V8 pales in comparison to the Tundra's V8 upgrade, which delivers more power as well.
  • The Tundra also offers more payload muscle than the Silverado.
  • The Silverado lineup starts out with a barebones work truck. While Tundra drivers can choose to remove power accessories with the SR Work Truck package, even the Tundra base model comes with a rearview camera, touchscreen infotainment, and Bluetooth connectivity. You have to climb several very basic Silverado 1500 trims to even begin to level the playing field with creature comforts -- and then you're paying a lot more.
