2018 Ford F-250 vs 2018 Toyota Tundra

Proudly Serving Hammond, LA

The 2018 Ford F-250 is a Super Duty pickup truck from Ford that is all set to compete against the Toyota Tundra all of 2018 and beyond. Both of these pickups have stylish exteriors, unique interiors, and plenty of power to pull them through the competition, but only one of these handsome trucks can come out victorious, and we're picking the F-250. With so many incredible features, including a 6.2L SOHC 2-valve Flex Fuel V8 engine that is out of this world, TorqShift® Heavy-Duty 6-speed SelectShift-G™ Automatic transmission, and Trailer Sway Control to name just a few, this is the truck that can get the job done, even if the job is just plain fun out with the family.

Head and Leg Room

People who drive trucks often neglect to check on head and leg room before jumping the gun and buying. Truth told, a lot of tall folks out there are going to appreciate the bigger head and legroom offered by the F-250. While this isn't the only thing anyone should look at when they're buying a truck, it's often an important component to making sure that you get a smooth, relaxed drive each and every time. You've got to have room to feel at home, and the Ford F250 gives you that head and legroom that you need.

Powertrain

The engine options for the F-250 are superb, and they're going to net you significantly more horsepower and a bit more torque than the Tundra. The Tundra offers engines that power out between 310 horsepower and 381 horsepower while the F-250 powers out a whopping 385 to 450 horsepower, more than enough to impress even someone driving a sports car. This additional power is going to mean a lot to people who need that heavy duty power to get tough jobs done. And while the Tundra is perfectly fine for a night on the town and features a great interior, it simply doesn't have the power that the F-250 affords you.

Towing Capacity

Many people buy a Super Duty truck like this because they need the truck to do heavy lifting. The Tundra falls short in that category by a long shot. The F-250 can tow 12,300 to 13,300 lbs, and that's quite a bit better than the Tundra's numbers: 6,400 to 10,200 lbs. If you're buying a truck for work or if you need this truck to haul something big, you're going to need the F-250 to get the job done. Anything lighter might be suitable enough for the Tundra, but why sell yourself short? Get something that can truly tow anything you have to tow whenever you have to tow it. For towing capacity, the F-250 wins hands down, no second thoughts!

Heavy Duty work requires a heavy duty truck and for your needs, we feel like the 2018 Ford F-250 is going to be the truck to look at this year. We're not saying that the Tundra won't be enough for some folks. It definitely will, and we are happy that you're out there finding the truck that suits you bet.
