I don't get it....they said the f150 had everything BUT a powerful V8...it is a dam truck, a motor is one of if not the key component. Also look closely at the numbers, they gave every other truck a 3 at min on unloaded driving and the tundra a 1? But then loaded the Tundra goes up to a 3. Not saying it was rigged or anything but many of the numbers they figured do not make sense to me personally. Some of the categories are weird to, i.e. reciever hitch workability? wtf is that supposed to mean. Tundra got a 1 for that also.
Simply read the introduction for the Tundra. It is obviously and completely biased in terms of the f150. They admit it has more power and is faster but then say "O a year ago that power was impressive but not now" while BTW they said the f150 is really underpowered ?? I'm confused. If you read a lot of it they compare even other trucks to the f150 and say pretty much flat out that the truck was better at doing X than the f150 but that they liked the f150 more for some dumb reason and not because it did the job better.
Also why not use a fully loaded trailer such as a 10k lb one? Too much for the FI suspension of the ram?aw. Or could the f150 not even get over 10 mph with a trailer like that with it's girly motor.
I don't take many of those test comparisons to seriously since things such as ride comfort are personal preference and to me the tundra is the smoothest truck I have ever ridden in or driven. Also I know that my truck will easily carry and pull far more than I would feel comfortable driving with behind me down the road. Take into account customer service, reliability, resale value, and looks even and I am 100% happy with my choice.
