I'm on my second 5.0. Had a 13' and now a 15'. I love the motor/truck. I run a PMAS intake and custom tune from Ken Osborne with Oz Tuning. It wakes the truck up noticeably. The 5.0 tows well, gets high teens mileage unloaded with stock size tires. I run larger tires so my mileage is crap, no better than a tundra. The eco boost is a strong motor, I just don't like it. I do believe Toyota's have better resale value if you don't plan to keep the truck for a while.

Pulling an 8k TT trailer from Sonora to Houston I avg. 8.9mpg with 34's running between 65-70 for reference. Daily driving is in the 13.5-14 mpg range and long hwy trip is 14.5-15.5 mpg. The 36 gallon tank with a CC and 6.5' is the perfect combo IMO. I don't believe you can do that with a Tundra.

I imagine most Prius owners always brag about how much their Prius can haul on the Prius owner forums.

OP, go Toyota. Built way stronger than the Ford is. And I own a Ford.
I donít drive half tons but 10 mpg is ridiculous.

Toyota being built ďstrongerĒ than Ford is like most internet stats...made up.

My brother has 3 as work pickups and they are 10 mpg and well under that towing. Look at some of the posts above from the Toyota guys that are honest about their mileage. 12 on a good day. Lol

I have driven both recently. I really like the power and comfort of the ford with the ecoboost, but Iím concerned about the turbos. My dad always told me to keep it simple. 2 turbos are 2 more things to go wrong. My main concern is longevity. Anybody got a high milage ecoboost or 5.0?

Same here. I've always been a v8 guy but my ecoboost blows away every v8 truck I've owned. I am extremely happy with it. With that said, the 5.0 is also a very good engine... and a little cheaper I believe

I have the 2017 F-150 2.7 liter ecoboost and love it. I am averaging 22 mpg and I drive mostly city. It also has 8500lb towing capacity and it's pretty quick too.

Brother has been driving it for 8 months, and still no issues. I personally don't have experience with the Fords, but if you do some research, the Toyotas hold their value very well.

Tundra here. I had a older ford and could of bought a new truck for what I spent to keep it running, but I did get almost 300k out of it. tundra wins hands down with power.. I have the grade version and it is just as nice as my lariat. If I had to pick again, tundra again!!!

So when the Tundra originally came out, Toyota was going to keep the T100 they had. That was to be the "half ton" version of their trucks. The Tundra was originally slated to be called the T150, but there were issues with Ford and the F-150 and copyrights. This T-150 was to be a 3/4 ton truck. The whole thing was designed to 3/4 ton specs.

With the fallout of the T150 due to the Ford issues, Toyota killed the T100, and revamped the Tundra as a half ton. I also think they realized there wasn't near as much money in the 3/4 ton market.

All this story I got from a friend who is a design engineer with Toyota. If I am wrong, I am all ears to hear the full story.

That explains why they get 3/4ton gasser fuel mileage. They just pulled a couple leaf springs out.

I am surprised on all these low mpg numbers on gas.
I get 16 mpg to and from work and 11.9 mpg towing in my Ford 6.7.

I had an 08 Tundra before and got 7-9 mpg when towing. Had awesome power though.

Hate to tell you Traildust, Tundras are assembled in the Great U.S.A. Like Ford and the rest but lots of parts made out of the U.S.A. My Tundra was made here in San Antonio TX.

I would rather not buy a truck that gets half the MPG when towing something. That’s ridiculous, especially on newer trucks.

Ford all the way on this one.

My boss just traded in his 15 tundra for a f150. He is the most particular person Iíve ever met and treated his like gold, it went to the dealership more times than I can remember all before 65k miles. Drove it with care and got 13-16mpg.

His new f150 with 10sp/5.0 gets 19-20mpg.


I have a 2.7 ecoboost in my f150 and I average 23mpg with a high of 24.4, but I try to stay below 70mph.

My 2013 5.0 f150 has been the best truck I’ve owned. I drive it like a Polaris ranger on weekends and it’s probably been more places then all these tundra guys can dream of. 160k miles of some really rough driving, no major problems, overall average 15.7 mpg stock truck with bigger tires. Buddy has same year truck and engine that’s at 260k miles of oilfield road driving, no problems.
I don’t care for the newer Ford body style 2015 and up as much as my model though.

Had Ford King Ranch's, Chevy's, Tundra years past and now Tundra again.

All I know is the Tundra has all the power I need, 15mpg city/hwy average AND my 1794 Edition (competes with King Ranch,) get's looks wherever I drive. Bought it used after Eco problems with the King Ranch and LOVE it!! Oh, took me forever to find this truck....supply and demand? I could find "my" previous problem truck all day long but not the Tundra?? Guess that speaks for itself.

All I know is the Tundra has all the power I need, 15mpg city/hwy average AND my 1794 Edition (competes with King Ranch,) get's looks wherever I drive. Bought it used after Eco problems with the King Ranch and LOVE it!! Oh, took me forever to find this truck....supply and demand? I could find "my" previous problem truck all day long but not the Tundra?? Guess that speaks for itself.
Sales between the tundra and F150 aren’t even close...
When you sell 10 times as many trucks wouldn’t you be more likely to find that truck?

Default Tundra or F-150?

Traded my 2015 duramax in for the same reason, just didnít really need a diesel. I got a 2015 f150 with the 3.5L ecoboost and the max tow package. I average 18-19 driving into the galleria every day from the east side of Houston.

I pulled my bay boat with it last weekend and you can tell you are towing with a half ton when you are on a bumpy road or trying to stop quickly but overall it did great. I think it actually did better on getting up to speed and passing....Boat is a 23í Haynie cat with a mid tower just for reference. I was worried the gasser would struggle bc of the tower grabbing wind but it did great.

You will also hear about 10x the problems because there are 10x as many on the road...

I would buy a Tundra if I could ever get past how **** ugly they are. I just don't see that happening.

I'm in the same boat right now. Had a F-250 and a Camry, got rid of both and bought a Tacoma. Love the smallness of the truck for daily driving. However, I miss the room of a full-size truck with the kids. Have only had the Tacoma a year but really thinking of trading it in for a Tundra.
