2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 Toyota Tundra
The 2015 Ford F-150 – the reinvention of America’s favorite pickup – is winning early praise as it sets the standard for the future of tough, thanks to the all-new vehicle’s impressive combination of power, capability and efficiency.
This month, the first of 10,000 dealer sales consultants began test driving the new truck in 26 cities nationwide. Performance driving and competitive towing exercises are underscoring the industry’s best towing and payload capability among full-size pickups – the all-new F-150 can tow 12,200 pounds and haul 3,300 pounds.
Overall, the 2015 F-150 is the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever. Regardless of model configuration or engine choice, every truck customer benefits from up to 700 pounds of weight savings the new truck delivers. The all-new F-150 can tow up to 1,100 more pounds, haul up to 530 more pounds and is projected to have fuel economy ratings in the range of at least 5 percent and as much as 20 percent better gas mileage than today’s truck, depending on the model. (Specific gas mileage numbers for the entire lineup will be certified by the U.S. EPA, likely in November, and announced at that time.)
“Once again, Ford F-150 establishes new standards in durability, capability, technology and efficiency,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “We keep raising the bar on America’s favorite truck to help F-150 owners be more productive 24/7 – whether for work or weekend fun.”
