Toyota Tundra vs. Ford F150

My friend is attempting to convince me that an F150 can outperform a Tundra. From my experience a Tundra can hands down outperform an F150. He keeps referencing numbers that he is finding on the internet. But numbers dont equal real life experience. Any ideas on this subject guys? Do you think a Tundra would outperform a F150?

I don't mean in a drag race. I know the Tundra can walk away from a F150. I mean overall performance. Like handling, driving, hauling, etc.

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.

Damn. Tundras are my favorite but I really like Fords too, I think it has alot to do with them not taking bailout money and they have put SO MUCH WORK into improving their trucks.

Which now begs the question: What year will Toyota Tundra come back with their answer to the Ford F150 upgrades?

I have minor mods on my 5.7L and have liked going WOT on our local dragstrip.. I test drove the Ford Ecoboost (V6 Turbo w/ DGI).. major turbo lag, but a decent pull after that.. then drove the 5.0 F-150 (no DGI!?) and that thing pulled pretty good.. I hate to say.. like my 5.7L.. All of this on my proven "butt-O-meter" of course.. That same 5.0 is lethal in their new mustang, just tuned down to 360HP with more torque for the F-150.

Ford has really stepped their game up but I still prefer my tundra. More attitude in them. Tundra is still the winner of it's class though. Best mileage towing, best power towing, best stopping. Tundra just need suspension IMO. Too much body roll stock. And I blame it one the center of gravity.

Ford is a close second to me, performance wise.

Yea Ford has really stepped it up , but I still take a Tundra. When I was shopping for a new truck last year It was between those two, but Toyota power, and reliability won. Plus I hate the Tail lights of the new F 150, It looks like they went to the flea market and picked up those clear and chrome light everybody and there moma had 6 or 7 years ago. They look like a cheap aftermarket mod.

2 guys @ work have bought f150's in the last few weeks...

one has the 5.0, but didnt get the proper tow pkg so has the mpg rear end, the other bought the ecoboost with the full tow pkg ( better ratio rear) and i like mine better, mine looks better sitting there... oh, and my buy payment is only about 60-80 bucks more than their lease payments...

2010 CM RW, blacked out, Led's,Hid's bhlm, 315/60r18 Grabber's, XD wheels, Aero turbine exhaust, more than meets the eye.

I like weapons.
I dont capitalize, use spell check, or punctuate properly...
and you can call me Power.

I used to drive a Ford for work and I always thought the steering was way to fast in the turn. Toyota gets knocked for being to slow but I like the Toyota handling. It always felt like I could turn so fast in the Ford that I could flip it. I never did, but it felt that way. Toyota all the way.

I would say you cant really lose with either truck. The new Ford engines are no joke. I wouldnt mind driving one. I think the Tundra has the worst interior but the power train is great. I have a 2011 RAM R/T and my interior is beautiful!

I believe the 2nd gen Tundra is the best thing that ever happened to the"Big 3."I've never owned a Ford but the 2011 F-150 with the 5.0 would probably be sitting in my garage right now, if it was available in 2010. I testdrove a 2010 FX4 and liked everthing about it, except for the 5.4 V8 and unavailability of a manual shift mode for their 6 speed. Ford has upped the anti in 2011 and I'd have no problem owning one today. My 2010 DC has benn totally 'issue free' though and I've "modded" the heck out of it (small things), so it would be just a case of me wanting to try something different ,by getting rid of my Tundra,no other excuses apply
