comparing tundra 4x4 with ford f series

Are the new Toyota Tundra 4x4 more comparable to the F-150 or F-250 ?

Probably. Being as they wont break down as much, they would actually be able to make it to their destination....

If I'm reading your question right, it would be comparable to the F-150.

My friend is about to buy a brand new F150 FX4 Ecoboost. I don't know much about it but I've been persuading him to also consider the Tundra. He tows a boat in summer and a five sled snowmobile trailer in the winter. Anything I can tell him more specifically to look at other than reliability. Like specific towing capabilities or some certain feature that is superior. To be honest the Ecoboost sounds like it might be better for him from what he's told me but neither truck is my area of expertise. Thanks in advance

the Ecoboost engine has had many problems I have heard...needs the bugs worked out of it.

Love my Tundra but it is a 1st gen.

Personally I would get a F series or Silverado over a new Tundra any day.

This. The Silverado may not have the same power as the tundra but looks better both on the outside and the inside.

I was always a Chevy man, and was completely set on a Silverado at one point. . . Then traded in my Tahoe for a Taco and never looked back

The Tundra is just big power numbers. BFD.

One of the sled mags did a review of the Ecoboost & towing sled trailers specifically. I will see if I can find the article but the review mentioned it did not meet expectations when towing.

This is not true.
MPG numbers in my 2011 tundra are very comparable to what I got in my 2006 Tacoma DC 4x4 4.0L V6 auto. I have tracked it pretty good since trading in Sep.

I have avg 19 on longer trips & 13 mpg towing my enclosed 2 place snowmobile trailer this winter all over VT/NH/ME. That was better than tacoma did.
Just saying as an owner of both. My tacoma I had 5 yrs & it was a great truck but towing is much easier with the Tundra and really like it. My mpg did not suffer at all.

As far as the OP question comparatively the F150 will find the article and post the link.

You can get a Silverado 1500 that puts out more power(at least HP not sure on torque) than the Tundra. 6.2L 402hp.

But I'd agree I'd take an F150 or Silverado over a Tundra. Not that I dislike the Tundra but there are others I like better. Although I also like the new Rams and I've always disliked previous generation Rams.

Really depends on who you talk to. Everyone will have stories saying this car sucks i know so and so who has one and they have this problem. Then you'll have the others who have had no issues. This can be applied to any vehicle. It would only take one Taco owner to make someone think that all Taco's rust to hell or all the transmissions suck or this or that.

I traded my 2010 Tacoma for a 2011 F150 EcoBoost because I purchased a larger travel trailer. I pull about 7k pounds when all is said and done and it does a great job. I'm just over 15,000 and have had 0 problems with this truck.

I loved my Taco, but it wouldn't pull the trailer.

My dad owns a tundra and when we are towing our boat we get 15 mpg and normally we get around 18-20 mpg not towing...
