Move your stuff in style in modern pickup trucks like the 2019 Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra. Both trucks pair muscle with cutting-edge technology and creature comforts, so you can have your best day at work. And both trucks are impressive in off-road terrain, making it all the more difficult to choose between them. Luckily, our comparison guide is here to help you sort out the details.
Comfiest Drive: It’s a Tie!
Both trucks are roomy and comfortable, with an emphasis on supportive seating. And, these days, you can upgrade any pickup truck for a truly luxurious ride. Both the 2019 Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra deliver the goods, with optional leather upholstery and creature comforts like heated and ventilated seats. The F-150 even offers special front seats that will give you a massage during a long trip.
Most Configurable: 2019 Ford F-150
With six trim models, three cabins, three bed lengths, and five engine options, the F-150 takes the cake for configurability. No matter what kind of truck driver you are, you can figure out a truck that works for you. There’s an F-150 for off-road adventure, max towing, max hauling, and max luxury.
The Toyota Tundra is only slightly less configurable, with two body styles, three bed lengths, and five trim models. Unlike with the F-150, you can’t get a Tundra with a regular cabin. Toyota only offers the Tundra with a double or crew cabin.
Tows & Hauls More: 2019 Ford F-150
Need to tow some massive machinery? Or a gigantic family camper? You need the 2019 F-150. Properly equipped, this full-size truck can tow up to 13,200 pounds. The Toyota Tundra maxes out at just 10,200 pounds.
The F-150 also hauls more. Depending on configuration and equipment, this baby moves 3,270 pounds’ worth of your work supplies or camping gear. The Tundra forces you to make a lot more trips to get the job done because the Toyota pickup only hauls up to 1,730 pounds.
Best Off-Roader: 2019 Ford F-150
Ready for a little adventure? The F-150 is more than capable on rugged terrain, especially when you choose the off-road-ready F-150 Raptor trim model. This truck includes special four-wheel drive, Fox shocks, a reinforced frame, and more—all to help you muck through riverbeds and climb rocky inclines.
Like the F-150, the Toyota Tundra offers four-wheel drive for all of its trim models. And that, of course, means more traction in off-road territory. This truck also offers an off-road friendly trim level, the TRD Pro. The Tundra also includes bigger shocks and a higher lift. However, the F-150 Raptor has a longer list of rugged gear, making the Ford the best-suited off-road truck.
We won’t deny that the Toyota Tundra is a fine full-size truck, but the 2019 Ford F-150 really blows the competition away. The F-150 is the best off-roader, moves more weight, and offers drivers a ton of configurations. The F-150 is the truck for you, whether you’re ready to work or in the mood for adventure.
