Compare Ford F-150 to its Fiercest Rivals Head-to-Head at Terry Henricks Ford

You may know our automaker's full-size truck as one of the best-selling in the US for the last four decades and counting. There are several good reasons for that, but simply put, Ford F-150 shows its workhorse capabilities in every way that a truck should. That it's resultantly well-regarded by light-duty pickup enthusiasts the world over is plain to see, too. Ask just about any construction worker, and they'll mention its ease of handling and comfortable interior. Get a project manager's opinion, and they'll surely laud it for its towing and hauling chops and excellent fuel economy to match.

In fact, in the areas that matter, the new F-150 gets the best of just about every competitor, including its Chevy, GMC, and Toyota counterparts. Eager to see how? Check out just a few of the ways "Built Ford Tough" endures.



Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • F-150 offers both more horsepower in its base 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, 290, and more engine choices, a total of six -- one for just about any application. The new Silverado 1500 base trim, WT, sporting a 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6, puts out just 285 horsepower, and the Silverado light-duty line only provides three engines to choose from.
  • Six- and 10-speed transmissions come standard and available respectively in F-150, with special towing, hauling, sport driving, slick terrain, and high-efficiency modes. Silverado offers a standard six-speed gearbox and makes an eight-speed auto available, but it doesn't offer further modes to personalize the drive.
  • A new Ford F-150 supports payloads up to 3,270 pounds and trailerfuls up to 13,200 pounds -- ratings at the head of the class. Silverado supports only up to 1,960 and 11,000 pounds respectively. You can reach a max of 17,700 pounds, but only right around the top of the line, with the highest-capacity engine, with 4WD, and with an optional Max Trailering Package. That means a costly investment.
  • You can own a new Ford F-150 for less than a new Silverado 1500. Its approximate base price is just under that of Chevy, and all these advancements and more come with it.

Ford F-150 vs. GMC Sierra 1500

  • With six engines to select from, ranging from a 250-horsepower, 3.0-liter Power Stroke® turbo-diesel to a 395-horsepower, 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 and 450-horsepower EcoBoost V6, F-150 demonstrates that it's more capable than Sierra 1500, which offers a slate of four engines with power ratings from 285 to 420 horsepower.
  • F-150 is better-equipped than Sierra 1500 to carry the weight of the workday. It supports maximum payloads up to 3,270 pounds, not to mention that it can tow up to 13,200 pounds. Sierra 1500 can only take on up to 12,200 pounds, and only with a double cab configuration, an available 6.2-liter V8, and an optional Max Trailering Package.
  • According to EPA estimates, F-150 can get mileage up to 19 mpg in a city like Defiance, OH, and 25 mpg down the highway to Wauseon or nearby Napoleon, OH. Sierra 1500 can get up to 20 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, but only with the 2.7-liter turbo engine in step-up SLE and high-level Elevation trims.
  • Between F-150 and Sierra 1500, ours is the more economical choice, priced much lower than its rival.



Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tundra

  • Ford bests Toyota on both power ratings and engine choices, making it more driven for tough jobs. F-150 makes available a 395-horsepower, 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 as well as a high-output 450-horsepower, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, whereas Tundra offers only 310- and 381-horsepower engines. Plus, F-150 can put out a powerhouse 510 pound-feet of torque in select trims. Tundra maxes out at 401 pound-feet.
  • A standard six-speed automatic transmission with Tow/Haul and Sport modes and an optional 10-speed with settings for Snow/Wet and EcoSelect makes F-150 more utilitarian than Tundra. The latter features only one gearbox, a six-speed auto with intelligence (ECT-i), and you can only get a mode for towing and hauling by opting for a costlier 5.7-liter V8 engine.
  • Ford is best-in-class on payload and tow ratings, capable of shouldering 3,270 pounds and 13,200 pounds respectively. Toyota can reach a 1,660-pound max payload rating and 10,100 pounds of max towing capacity, but only in models like Tundra Limited.
  • Tundra is also behind F-150 on fuel economy. Expect up to 19 mpg in cities and 25 mpg down highways, by EPA estimates. Toyota is capable of only up to 15 city mpg and 19 highway mpg.
  • F-150 is more cost-effective than Tundra, at a significantly lower approximate base price.
