Drivers looking for a full-size, light-duty pickup that can immediately handle the needs of families or work sites may be intrigued by the immediate capability of the Toyota option in this 2018 Toyota Tundra vs 2018 Ford F-150 comparison. While the base 2018 Toyota Tundra SR has a higher starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price than the Ford model, it comes standard with six seats rather than the three on the 2018 Ford F-150 XL base Regular Cab model, and also offers more engine output.
The 3.3-liter V-6 engine standard on the 2018 Ford F-150 is rated for 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. While that is a respectable amount of power and acceleration potential, drivers who opt for the 2018 Toyota Tundra get 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque right off the bat. That can be an advantage for many drivers.
Standard Technology and Driver Assistance on the 2018 Toyota Tundra
While the Ford model in this 2018 Toyota Tundra vs 2018 Ford F-150 comparison starts with basic options, the 2018 Toyota Tundra starting trim immediately delivers practical features and comfort and convenience advantages.

The base infotainment system in the 2018 Ford F-150 comes with a 4.2-inch display screen that is not touch-controlled.
Even better for practical-minded drivers, every model of the 2018 Toyota Tundra comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ bundle of crash prevention features.
