How did we compare the 2015 Ford F-150, and the 2015 Toyota Tundra?

The popular Ford F-150, and well-liked Toyota Tundra are both full-size pick up trucks that offer far more than their predecessors. Neither of these beauties are your father’s workhorses of the past that were designed mainly to transport materials, and equipment. Both vehicles are equipped with modern conveniences, and interior luxury. They offer a wide range of options that are tailored to fit individual requirements regarding both passenger space, and bed size. In comparing the 2015 Ford F-150, and its counter part, the 2015 Toyota Tundra, we relied on four main categories.

  1. Power and Performance
  2. Design
  3. Features
  4. Configurations

We rated the winner in each category, and the overall winner as seen below.

Head to head comparisons.

Power and Performance:


The 2015 Ford F-150 is available with four engine choices, and was redesigned with added power, and better fuel efficiency. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 282 horsepower, and 255 pound feet of torque. The new EcoBoost V6 engine produces 325 horsepower, along with 375 pound feet of torque. Ford also offers a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that provides even better fuel economy, and increased towing capacity. For consumers that need a larger engine, the 5.0-liter V8, with 360 horsepower, and 380 pound feet of torque is carried over from the previous generation.

The 2015 Toyota Tundra only offers two engines. The first is a 4.6-liter V8 that produces 310 horsepower, and 327 pound feet of torque. The Tundra’s other choice is the 5.7-liter V8 producing 381 horsepower, and 401 pound feet of torque.

Given all the engine choices, and better fuel economy, the winner here is the Ford F-150.


The Ford F-150 has a new, revolutionary design. Equipped with aluminum siding, a high-strength steel frame, and aluminum body panels, the vehicle is both stronger and lighter, by 700 pounds, then its predecessor.

The Toyota Tundra is an extremely strong contender. The classy front grille, combined with 32-inch tires lends a stylish appearance. However it is missing the innovation in design and materials that the Ford offers.

The winner here is the Ford F-150.



Both trucks offer a laundry list of luxury features. The base Toyota Tundra SR incorporates advanced technology including Bluetooth, and Toyota’s Entune infotainment system. The Limited, and Platinum upper trim levels present premium features such as leather seats, and navigation.

The Ford F-150 offers more luxury features then ever before, including a 115-volt outlets to charge tools and batteries. The power locking rear tailgate can be opened by a remote control. Another option is the 360-degree rearview camera, a feature that is typically offered on luxury cars.

The Toyota Tundra just edges out the Ford F-150 as the winner here.


Last but certainly not least is the Configurations category. It has become standard issue for heavy-duty work trucks to present a wide range of cabin and bed options. Both the Ford F-150, and Toyota Tundra do not disappoint.

The Ford F-150 offers three cab choices, the Regular, SuperCab, and SuperCrew cabins. Closely matched, the Toyota Tundra is available in Regular, Double, or Crewmax cabins. Ford’s Regular cabin models are only matched with the standard six-foot, seven-inch long bed. The SuperCab, and SuperCrew cabins are available with the smaller five-foot, seven-inch short bed, or a larger eight-foot, one-inch extended bed.

The Toyota Tundra includes a standard six-foot, five-inch bed. Additional options include the five-foot, five-inch short bed, and the eight-foot, one-inch extended bed.

Given the Ford F-150’s larger bed sizes, it edges out the Toyota Tundra as the winner here.

And the winner is….

You cannot go wrong with either the 2015 Ford F-150, or the 2015 Toyota Tundra. Both pickup trucks offer great performance, design, features, and available configurations for the money. That being said, the Ford F-150 is the clear winner, beating out the Toyota Tundra in three out of four categories, and coming extremely close to tying on the fourth category. In our opinion, the Tundra is a great truck, however the F-150 is a true champion.

Why Ford?

Founded by Henry Ford, in Michigan, the century old Ford Motor Company is one of largest family-owned and controlled automaker in the world even today. The company that stands at fifth rank, in terms of sales, has found business evolving worldwide—including both developed and developing countries and is currently worth $ 199 billion.




The company was founded in 1903. It initially had five brands under its umbrella which were gradually sold off. These included Land Rover, Aston Martin, Mercury, Jaguar and Volvo. Initially the company produced vehicles in three variants Ford Model A, K and S. The S model was the last right-hand steering model produced by the company.

The Model T was introduced in 1908. The company set up its first branch in Piquette Road Manufacturing Plant in Detroit. About 18,000 Model T vehicles were manufactured in this unit.

Within 15 years, the company’s market share increased to $ 60 million. The company joined the luxury cars segment in 1922 by joining hands with Lincoln motor company. Ford is also credited for having set up one world’s biggest Auto museum in 1928.

Ford is one of the few companies that survived the “Great Depression” period—where most automakers collapsed due to declined production and sales. In 1932, the company laid off many of its potential workforce to meet the crisis.

The world war aftermaths saw Ford producing war vehicles as well. Under the Pearl Harbour regime, Ford produced about 3, 90,000 trucks and tanks; 2, 70,000 jeeps; about 25000 engines and more than 8000 B-24 liberators. This won the company the biggest share of the wartime contracts pie.

After 1950, the company produced some of its premier models like Fiesta, Thunderbird, Escort, Cortina, Granada and Mercury Monarch.

The company expanded its production facilities in other countries after 1910. These included England, Germany, Austria, Denmark and France where Model T was highest in demand.

The founder Henry ford passed away in 1947. He is known to have received the blessings and prayers of over seven million people during his death ceremony.

The company, as a part of its golden jubilee celebrations launched Ford Mustang in 2003. The company suffered huge financial crisis over the past decade losing over $ 12 billion dollars in 2006.

It was then that the company was forced to sell off its Martin, Land Rover and Jaguar brands. The company rolled out plans to launch a fully electric-controlled motor leading to a sensation in the market. The announcement came with a promise of zero carbon emission. These were gradually rolled out in 2011. Later, in 2012, Ford Focus electrical was launched.

In India, Ford has its Endeavour and Fiesta as the largest selling models till date.



Despite emerging a leading manufacturer of automobiles and reaching the fifth rank despite all the odds it faced over the past couple of years, the company has an array of challenges ahead.

The mounting prices of gas in the US, has given a tough time to the company to keep up with the high demands of specific segments of vehicles and meeting the competitive market needs.

Now, worldwide, the buyers look for fuel economy even in the luxury segment. Producing a royal car with fuel economy is a big challenge that most automakers are facing including the Ford Motor company.
