2018 Toyota Tundra Vs 2018 Ford F-150 Lexington, MA
In the light and medium-duty truck segments, reliability and performance are key to success. Whether a truck is being used on the work site, or the great American freeway, it needs to be able to work. Both the Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150 have built reputations for solid work vehicles. Beyond being simply utilitarian, however, a good truck should be comfortable and enjoyable to drive.
The addition to the lineup of the TRD Sport package proves that the Toyota Tundra is an adventurous, high-energy pickup option in the light and medium-duty truck class. The 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport package accents industry-leading performance with aggressive styling, 20-inch alloy wheels, and the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite of active safety features. With a host of configuration options for both, we’ll be looking at the 2018 Toyota Tundra 4x4 CrewMax model in the Limited trim. The Ford F-150 will be the comparable 2018 Ford F-150 Supercrew 4x4 model with Lariat trim level.
