Toyota Tundra vs Ford F-150: Powerful Features
While the Ford F-150 offers seven different engine options, the Toyota Tundra is confident that its single 5.7L V8 engine, coupled with its signature performance features, will be more than enough for its drivers. Here are just some features that make this model a standout in performance:
- A-TRAC System: The Active Traction Control system makes an appearance on all 4-wheel drive Tundra models and utilizes its front and rear axles for better performance on low-traction terrains; this system is great for traveling through slippery roads, muddy paths, sandy shores, and more.
- Auto LSD: The standard Automatic Limited-Slip Differential system applies brake power to the wheels that need it most. While the system is working, it does not affect your engine power and hands out extra power where it’s most effective.
- Supreme braking power: The Toyota Tundra comes with 13.9-inch front brakes and 4-piston calipers to help it come to a complete halt, even when towing hefty attachments.
There are only a few features within the Ford F-150 that prioritize its vehicle’s performance quite like the Toyota Tundra.
Tundra vs F-150: Going Tow-to-Tow
Across all trims, the 2021 Toyota Tundra gifts its drivers with the standard Tow Package, which includes:
- Towing hitch receiver
- Integrated Trailer Brake Controller (ITBC)
- A heavy-duty battery
- 4.30 rear axle ratio
The model’s rear bumper comes with a 4-/7-pin connector to easily connect to compatible trailer attachments. The system will also automatically adjust itself to avoid swaying and shifting.
The TOW/HAUL Modes are there for when you need an extra boost of energy as you tow. Simply press to increase your throttle response when stopping or steering your attachment.
The Ford F-150 has a somewhat similar towing package, however, it does not come standard and instead is only optional to certain models.

The Toyota Tundra tends to offer a bit more room to play in terms of entertainment and connective services. First, the model offers Remote Connect, which allows you to stay connected to your vehicle long after you park. Check the status of your vehicle at any time through your smart devices.
A standout feature is the model’s available Destination Assist, which pair you up with a live agent when traveling to parts unknown.
