2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma

2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma

We like being as comprehensive as possible with these model comparisons because we know they are a great help to our customers searching for a new car, truck or SUV in and around Tampa, FL. But every now and then, we come across a head-to-head model comparison that’s just unfair. This is one of those instances.

Granted, you could say that about any head-to-head battle that involves the 2019 Ford F-150 lineup – or any new Ford F-150 lineup, for that matter. That’s because the each and every new F-150 lineup has offered best-in-class power and best-in-class capability for as long as we can remember. That’s again the case for the 2019 F-150 lineup, and it’s one of the main reasons why this 2019 Ford F-150 versus 2019 Toyota Tacoma comparison is so lopsided.

Another big reason why this comparison is so lopsided is because the 2019 Ford F-150 is a full-size truck whereas the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is only a midsize truck. But, as we pointed out in our introduction, we need to be thorough when doing these comparisons and there are plenty of people out there trying to decide whether to purchase a 2019 F-150 or a 2019 Tacoma.

If you’re one of those people and you want the most power and most capability possible – all at a starting price just over $2,000 more than the Tacoma – then you’re going to want to purchase a new Ford F-150. That’s because the 2019 Ford F-150 is far more powerful than the 2019 Toyota Tacoma, and far more capable, too.

The power story is told best by simply looking at the standard engine of the 2019 F-150 lineup and the most powerful engine of the 2019 Tacoma lineup. Both of these engines offer the same amount of torque, but the 2019 F-150 lineup’s standard engine features more horsepower than the most powerful 2019 Tacoma engine.

The capability story is told best by just looking at the comparison table above – while trying not to let your jaw hit the floor when you see just how much more capable the 2019 F-150 lineup is when compared to the 2019 Tacoma lineup.
