It's no secret that trucks these days offer powerful performance, versatile features, and a wide selection of features, so how can you be sure that you're getting the right truck for you here in Lincoln Park? We've put together a quick comparison of two popular models, the Ford F-150 and the Toyota Tundra so you can see why you should pick the Ford F-150 here at Fox Chicago Ford.

Performance & Capabilities

Recently, the biggest change to the F-150 came in the form of an all-aluminum body which reduced the F-150's weight by nearly 700 pounds, while the high-strength steel frame brings higher towing and hauling numbers to the table. The Ford F-150 features several engines to choose from including:

  • 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 with three selectable drive modes and a six-speed automatic transmission
  • 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with Ford First Port Fuel and Direct Injection. 325 horsepower and 400 pound feet of torque
  • 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 with 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package available
  • Raptor DOHC 24-Valve High-Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V8 with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
  • 3.0-liter Power-Stroke Turbo Diesel with 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.

The Toyota Tundra only offers two engine options for you to choose from:

  • 4.6-liter V8 with 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque
  • 5.7-liter i-FORCE V8 with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque

It's easy to see that the Ford F-150 offers more versatility and more options for you and your next medium-duty pickup truck here in Logan Square. You'll love how easily the Ford F-150 navigates through city streets, highways, and even winding dirt backroads leading your next adventure around Lakeview. Another benefit of choosing the Ford F-150 is that you get a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds and haul up to 3,300 pounds. The Toyota Tundra can only tow a maximum of 10,200 pounds and haul up to 1,730 pounds.


Both of these trucks offer infotainment systems, but with the available SYNC 3® system on your new Ford F-150 you'll be able to enjoy all the technology that you want like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, enhanced voice recognition and even integrated navigation. The responsive touchscreen display makes the system easy to use and the available Wi-Fi hotspot can connect up to 10 different devices. The Toyota Tundra also brings a touchscreen infotainment screen to the table, with many of the same features, though it does lack features like Apple CarPlay for your smartphone integration.

Each new Ford F-150 comes with a rearview backup camera, just like the Tundra, but what the Tundra misses is the Dynamic Hitch Assist technology on the Ford F-150. This feature makes it easy to hook up your trailer, without having to get out and back in making sure you're lined up properly. Additional safety features for the ford F-150 include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and more. The Toyota Tundra comes with many of the same features within the Toyota Safety Sense P system.

Both trucks offer numerous cab and bed lengths for versatility and customized cargo and passenger space to meet your needs. Both trucks offer something for everyone, including a work-truck focused option and even a high-end borderline luxury level offering with all the bells and whistles. It's easy to find the affordable and value-packed option for your needs here in Chicago.
