The 2020 Ford F-150 is the large pickup of choice for countless thousands of buyers. It’s rugged, dependable, and comes with a wide range of powertrain choices. The 2020 Toyota Tundra is well-built and can be customized to some degree, but it’s a bit dated in terms of interior design and available high-tech features. Below, a more detailed comparison of the two models follows.
2020 Ford F-150
$28,495 – $53,205
Horsepower, 3.3-Liter Ti-VCT V6 Engine
2020 Toyota Tundra
$33,425 – $52,780
Horsepower, 5.7-Liter V8 Engine
For 2020, Toyota has decided to ditch the Tundra’s 4.6L V8 engine. This leaves the buyer with only one choice, the 5.7L V8 that’s rated at 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The V8 delivers plenty of thrust, but shifting a bit slow, and the transmission gets a little cranky at times. On the other hand, the 2020 Ford F-150 comes with a choice of five engines. The base engine is a 3.3L V6 good for 290 horsepower, plenty of the needs of most buyers. However, if hauling heaving loads is in the future, buyers can opt for the 2.7L turbo V6 with its 325 horsepower, the 5.0L V8, the 3.5L turbo V6, or the turbodiesel V6. The latter produces only 250 horsepower but also supplies a total of 440 lb-ft of torque. This engine really comes in handy when hauling a lot of cargo or trailering a heavy load in the low gear ranges. The base engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, but the other engines are paired with a 10-speed electronic automatic transmission with multiple drive modes.
Both the 2020 Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra are available as a double cab or extended crew cab, but the F-150 can also be purchased as a regular, two-door cab style. The Tundra base trim comes with a tilt-only steering wheel, a 7-inch screen display, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system. Uplevel trims add on a larger infotainment interface, leather upholstery, and an upgraded power driver’s seat. Some of the Tundra’s interior materials are a bit drab, and there are noticeable hard plastics even on the higher trims. The 2020 Ford F-150 has a more contemporary interior look, and the surfaces are softer with good-quality trim accents. The base trim is similarly appointed to the Tundra base trim, but the XLT trim adds keyless ignition, dual-zone climate control, front-seat lumbar adjustments, and an 8-inch screen display. The Ford Sync 3 system is standard on the XLT and above trims. The F-150 extended cab versions boast wider seats than what are found on the Tundra, and the large windows make for easy outward visibility. The F-150 also has large buttons and dials on the control panel, making for easy adjustments even when the driver is wearing work gloves.
The only major upgrade on the 2020 Toyota Tundra is the inclusion of smartphone app integration as standard across the trim lineup. On the other hand, the 2020 Ford F-150 now boasts optional exterior appearance packages for most trims, and the safety systems are now grouped into packages, making it easy for the buyer to choose the appropriate driver aids. The 2020 models also come with 4G LTE connectivity and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
