The 2020 Ford F-150 is part of the thirteenth generation of the long-running pickup truck. Since 1975, the F-150 has become one of the most treasured names in trucks. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma comes in at a similar price point to the 2020 Ford F-150, but each truck follows different design philosophies, making for two different trucks made to suit different needs. Does the 2020 Ford F-150 hold up to the equivalent Toyota offering? Today we are going to dive into what makes each truck unique and why.
2020 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Toyota Tacoma Performance
The 2020 Ford F-150 comes with the available High-Output 3.5L V6 Ecoboost® engine able to push up to 450 Horsepower, far ahead of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma’s best, a 3.5 Liter V6 engine option which reaches only 278 Horsepower. As expected, the 2020 Ford F-150 beats the 2020 Toyota Tacoma in Torque as well, with the F-150 producing 510 lb-ft against the Tacoma’s 265 lb-ft. Even when comparing the base model engines, the F-150 supplies over 100 more Horsepower than the Tacoma.
2020 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Toyota Tacoma Entertainment Features
Head to head, both the 2020 Ford F-150 and 2020 Toyota Tacoma offer improved installed sound equipment for their higher trim levels, but how do they compare? The 2020 Ford F-150 features Bang & Olufsen Premium speakers, and the 2020 Toyota Tacoma fights back with a JBL sound system. The F-150’s Bang & Olufsen system features ten total speakers and a subwoofer, surpassing the Tacoma’s six speakers and one subwoofer. Additionally, by going with the F-150 you get a total of six months of satellite radio service provided, twice what the Tacoma offers.
The 2020 Ford F-150 brings both front and rear parking sensors to the large truck class, but even the highest trim level of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma only has rear parking sensors. The F-150 also aims for greater driver comfort by putting an 8-way power-adjustable seat behind the wheel, where the Tacoma sticks with manual adjustments.
