Full-Sized Pickup Truck Comparison at Byers Ford

Capability is a category that the Ford F-150 wins with relative ease. Best-in-class towing at 13,200 pounds with the proper equipment means that you can trailer without restrictions, while the Tacoma and Silverado will have limits compared to this number. The same goes for the respective best-in-class payload rating at 3,270 pounds, allowing you to load your truck bed and support an impressive amount of weight. EcoBoost engine performance, a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body design, and an improved frame that is 700 pounds lighter all contribute to these key advantages over the competition.

Class-exclusive features for the Ford F-150 help to stabilize trips with heavy trailer equipment or payloads in a manner that the competition can't match. The class-exclusive available remote tailgate release makes the loading process more efficient, with a class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature helping with visibility when you need to get out of a parking spot with your trailer hitched on.

Climbing inside, it becomes evident that the F-150 comes with an advantage over the Silverado and Tacoma when it comes to technology. Ford SYNC 3 infotainment combines Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for practical entertainment, navigation, connectivity with family, and voice-activated requests. With a comfortable interior design, unique configuration options and luxury-level trims that include leather seating and more advanced amenities, the F-150 allows you to tailor your experience in a distinct way.
