The Toyota Tacoma is a decent option if you're the kind of driver who needs a solid truck for the occasional bit of heavy work. Even then, however, it doesn't hold a candle to the what the F-150 can deliver at a comparable price. For just $3,000 more, the F-150 delivers a base engine that's significantly more power, along with more modern styling and a better suite of features. The difference in quality only grows more intense the higher you climb both trucks' respective trim trees. At its peak, the new F-150 is one of the most capable trucks on the road. The Toyota Tacoma isn't bad, by any stretch, but it's also not as good.

 

2018 Ford F-150 vs. 2018 GMC Sierra 1500

Price: If you're looking at new trucks for your business, then the Ford F-150 is a great option, especially if you're looking to save money as it has a lower starting price, $27,705, than the GMC Sierra 1500, $29,000.

Engine Power and Capability: No matter how you plan on using your truck, the Ford F-150 is available with an engine to help you as it has wider range of options than the GMC Sierra 1500. Most engines of the F-150's lineup use EcoBoost® technology to provide a higher torque output, important for towing, while providing money-saving efficiency. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has more torque, 470 pound-feet, than any of the GMC Sierra's engines, and it's the most capable of the bunch with a best-in-class towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, which is 700 pounds more than the GMC Sierra's max towing. Oh yeah, it's also more efficient than any of the GMC Sierra's engines. The 5.0-liter V8 engine Ford offers more horsepower than the EcoBoost, which helps provide a payload capacity up to 3,270 pounds that is again much more than the GMC Sierra is capable of (max payload of 2,250 pounds). Newport Beach adventurers looking for an off-road capable truck will get just that with the Ford F-150 Raptor and it's high-output EcoBoost engine. This beast packs 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque that handles rock crawls and more with ease, and it was tested not far away in the grueling Baja 1000 off-road race where it performed admirably. The GMC Sierra doesn't offer an engine this off-road capable.

Towing Technology: The Ford F-150 is filled with more brawn than the GMC Sierra 1500, but it also outsmarts it with a range of innovative features. These range from features that help with towing, like the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, which syncs the truck and trailer when backing up with it hitched on, to safety features, like the Blind Spot Information System that still works with the extended blind spot when a trailer is hitched on. Neither of these features are available in the GMC Sierra.

Technology: Fountain Valley drivers will also find several screens in the cabin of the Ford F-150 that help in a multitude of ways. The 8-inch touch-screen in the center console lets you easily control audio and navigation with simple hand movements like pinch-to-zoom that you know from using your smartphone, but the GMC Sierra's display doesn't use these same touch features. What's more, the Ford F-150 houses a second 8-inch display in the instrument cluster that lets you see vital info about both the truck and, if connected, your trailer while the GMC Sierra sticks with a normal instrument cluster.
