The Ford F-150 is the most popular full-size pickup truck in North America and has been for many decades, and if you’re interested in owning or leasing your own, we have the 2023 Ford F-150 available at Stivers Ford Montgomery. A competitor to the F-150 is the Tundra from Toyota, and comparing the 2023 Ford F-150 vs 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is interesting as Toyota takes a different approach than the other domestic competitors like Chevrolet, GMC and Ram. The F-150 is offered in six trim levels aimed at the average consumer: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited. The 2023 Toyota Tundra is offered in six with a similar intent: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 and Capstone.
There are a wider range of options when it comes to cab and bed combinations for the 2023 Ford F-150. The cab options are a two-door regular cab, a two-door extended cab that Ford calls the Super Cab and a four-door crew cab that Ford calls the SuperCrew. Available bed lengths include an 8-foot long bed, a 6.5-foot standard bed and a 5.5-foot short bed. The short bed is available with the crew cab. The standard bed is available with all three cabs, and the long bed is available with the regular and extended cabs. For the 2023 Toyota Tundra, Toyota offers the Double, which is a four-door extended cab with half-size rear doors, and CrewMax, which is a crew cab with four full-size doors. The extended cab is available with a 6.5- or 8.1-foot bed, and the crew cab is available with a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed.
The F-150 regular cab is offered in two- and three-passenger configurations. The F-150 extended and crew cabs are offered in five- and six-passenger configurations. With the Tundra, a five-passenger configuration is standard across the board. Both models provide similar headroom in the first row but legroom in that row is greater in the Ford by more than 2 inches. Headroom in the second row is greater in the Ford by about 2 inches as well. Second-row legroom in the extended cabs is comparable, but the Ford crew is bigger by 2 inches, and that makes a significant difference when seating adults back there.
This likely the section most consumers will focus on when comparing the 2023 Ford F-150 vs 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and you have the option of rear- and four-wheel drive in both cases. There are off-road upgrades available for both models. It likely comes as no surprise the F-150 is more capable. It is the most capable non-DH pickup on the market and allows for towing up to 14,000 pounds and hauling more than 3,100 pounds. The Tundra tow rating tops out at 12,000 pounds, and its max payload rating is under 2,000 pounds.
This is the area where the 2023 Toyota Tundra stands out against the 2023 Ford F-150 is it includes more advanced driver assists as standard equipment. However, it’s important to note that the starting MSRP of the Tundra is higher by about $5,000 pounds, and you could actually add those driver assists through Stivers Ford Montgomery and still come out ahead. An 8-inch touch screen is standard in both cases. We’d argue that the Sync 4 software is superior to Entune, and if you’re interested in advanced trailering-assistance technologies, there really is no comparison between these two models.
