- The F-150 can both tow and haul more than the Tundra, offering best-in-class capabilities.
- If you’re looking for a wider range of build options, look to the F-150, which can serve as everything from a basic workhorse to an all-out luxury pickup.
- The 2022 F-150 offers features you won’t find on any other truck, including the 2022 Tundra.
Pure Power: 2022 Toyota Tundra
There are only two engines available for the Tundra, but both will impress you with their standard power. The first five Tundra trim models (SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition) come standard with a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (389 horsepower, 479 pound-feet of torque). The TRD Pro and Capstone trim models come standard with even greater power, thanks to a hybrid version of the same engine (437 hp, 583 lb-ft). This powerful hybrid V6 is also available as an option for the Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition.
The 2022 Ford F-150 has one engine that delivers more power than the Tundra’s hybrid, and that’s the Raptor-specific turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (450 hp, 510 lb-ft). However, it’s not available for any other F-150 trim models. The version of the turbo 3.5-liter V6 (400 hp, 500 lb-ft) that is available in other F-150 trim models isn’t quite as powerful, but it does help this truck tow best-in-class loads (see below).
Major Muscle: 2022 Ford F-150
There’s no doubt about it — the Ford F-150 can both tow and haul much more weight than the Toyota Tundra. Depending on body style and configuration, the F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds. Payloads are also impressive, reaching a class-leading 3,325 pounds!
Of course, the Tundra is also capable in its own right. Toyota’s light-duty truck can pull a trailer weighing up to 12,000 pounds, which may very well serve your needs! However, if your boat or camper is slightly heavier, you’re going to require the F-150. And the Tundra doesn’t even come close to hauling as much as an F-150 can, with max payloads of 1,940 pounds.
Body Style Configurations: 2022 Ford F-150
Both the F-150 and the Tundra offer three bed sizes. However, only the F-150 provides three cabin options. You can drive home in an F-150 with a regular, extended SuperCab, or SuperCrew cabin. The Tundra lacks the regular cabin option. And that may be an issue if you’re looking for a work truck that maximizes towing or hauling capabilities.
Innovative Features: 2022 Ford F-150
Both light-duty trucks offer a wide range of trim models, allowing you to decide how much you want to pay for a more luxurious truck. For an upscale cruise, available features include leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and premium sound systems.
However, the F-150 offers some standout features that you won’t find on the Tundra. For instance, with the Pro Power Onboard electrical generator and Tailgate Work Surface, you can set up shop anywhere, no matter how remote. And the Interior Work Surface creates a comfortable space to work from your iPad or spread out your lunchbox.
Your New Truck
The 2022 Toyota Tundra is certainly a stylish and powerful option. However, it’s the 2022 Ford F-150 that’s the real standout choice. Choose America’s bestselling truck for a wider range of powertrains, body styles, and innovative features! The F-150 is the right choice for drivers who want to maximize both their everyday comfort and working capabilities.
