Ford F-250 vs Toyota Tundra: Towing & Payload Capacities

When you think of a pickup truck, you most likely focus on towing and hauling. Luckily, the F-250 and Toyota Tundra are more than capable of doing both.

The F-250 can tow up to 18,500 pounds, when properly equipped. Plus, it has a maximum payload capacity of 4,250 pounds.

It also has lots of features to make hauling easier, like a remote tailgate release. You can lock, unlock, and lower the tailgate with just your key fob. Plus, BoxLink™ with locking cleats helps keep everything in place. And the stowable loading ramps make it easy to wheel your equipment up onto the truck bed.

The Tundra, on the other hand, has a maximum towing capacity of just 10,500 and can only haul up to 2,080 pounds. Plus, the features we mentioned above are class-exclusive. So, unfortunately, you won't find them in the Toyota pickup.

F-250 vs Tundra: Engine Specs

With strong capability comes great strength, and these pickup trucks have it with their powerful engine options.

The Ford F-250 comes standard with a 6.2L V8 that delivers 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. For even more power, there's the available 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel that puts out 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque.

Meanwhile, the most powerful engine in the Tundra, a 5.7L V8, only delivers 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque.

Unfortunately, fuel economy doesn't fare much better in the Tundra. It achieves an EPA-estimated 15 city/19 highway MPG, while the F-250 achieves an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG. This makes a big difference when you're spending much of the day on the road.

Truck High-Tech & Media Features

And when spending a lot of time driving, you want features that'll help keep you connected and entertained. Luckily, you'll find plenty of both in the F-250 and Tundra.

Each truck comes standard with CD/MP3 players and 6-speaker sound systems. Plus, the F-250 offers SiriusXM® Satellite Radio in its base trim. This gives you over 100 channels of music, sports, news, and comedy to listen to.

The F-250 also offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in its base trim level. Simply plug your compatible smartphone in the truck's USB port, and your favorite apps will appear on the available 8-inch color touchscreen. This way, you can listen to music, send text messages, or pull up directions while still focusing on the road ahead.

The Tundra offers SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™, as well. However, none of them are available in the base trim. Plus, its biggest touchscreen is just seven inches.
