I'll say this as for the Ford and the 5.0. I was rear ended last year and while my truck was being repaired (2011 Tundra SR5 Double Cab), I demanded a comparable rental vehicle. They gave me a 2011 F150 Crew Cab 5.0L. I was extremely suprised at how much LESS power the 5.0 has on low end and WOT, the truck just felt weak. I wasn't fond of the interior either and here's an odd one for ya, the turning radious of the Ford is much worse than my Yota. Thats a big one for me as I frequently have to make sharp turns at the bottom of narrow boat ramps to launch my boat.
Suspension of the Yota is much beefier, and the brakes are MUCH larger and more powerful.
As an advantage of the Ford, it did ride nice, perhaps a little softer than my Yota, but I didn't buy the Tundra to get a cadillac type ride, I bought it for the engine, big brakes, suspension, looks, and what it can do. Next truck will be a Tundra as well, love it.
