I would say, in terms of handling, the Tundra is the best half ton out there. Ride Quality cushiness, F150 wins out, Chevy 2nd, Tundra last. In terms of acceleration in a straight line, the Toyota 5.7 left everybody in the dust in 07. Chevy was first to come back with the 6.2, but that's a rare limited edition truck. Doesn't really count when you can get a 5.7 in any configuration of Tundra.
The new Ford motors are no joke, and the 5.0 F150 edges the Tundra out by a 10th or 2 depending on the driver in most measurements. Give Ford credit. They've really stepped up their game. Chrysler is close, and the Silverado is now behind the curve and needs a redesign.
The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.
