2018 F-150 vs. The Competition

The Car Connection has constructed a table stacking the F150 alongside the Chevy Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, and of course, the Ram 1500

In the respective order above, the scores given (out of 10) were 7.5,6.3,7.0,5.8,5.2, and 6.0
Quote:
The Ford F-150 is perennially in a dogfight with the GMC Sierra 1500/Chevy Silverado for buyers hearts and wallets.

While fleet buyers may be somewhat brand-agnostic, retail buyers may not be swayed by the F-150’s aluminum construction and turbo powertrains that deliver unreliable mileage gains.

Ram has done well to offer their 1500 in a broad swath of configurations, but a new Ram shouldn’t be far off now.

The Toyota and Nissan trucks are backmarkers in the race, but offer a strong V-8 and reliability record (Toyota) or a turbodiesel quasi-heavy duty truck that may sway buyers (Nissan).

That article couldn't be more true about Toyota. I always liked their V8's and never had problems with them.
Same goes for some of the V8's I serviced with hundreds of thousands of miles, its insane.

What they need to do now is come out with a Tundra diesel, that I might consider.

That would definitely help them out and this is the time they should come out with it and join the arms race. The F-150 Diesel will be coming soon. Ram has their EcoDiesel as well. Bring in a Tundra diesel first and then introduce a hybrid for it.

Seems like that's what Nissan is doing. right now you can get a Titan Diesel running a cummins engine. If one Japanese truck maker like that can do it, I don't see why Toyota can't, and wasn't Toyota doing better with truck sales than Nissan?

Toyota has been doing much better than Nissan in terms of pickup sales, as of right now, their Taco is at the top of the segment for the mid-sized pickup.

Toyota has always had those numbers anyways. The only Nissan truck I can recall doing well is the Frontier, still behind the Tacoma by a lot but ahead of Chevy's last iteration of the Colorado. By the looks of it, Titan will always be a low volume truck.

Of course the Titan isn't going to do so well though. That's playing in the full-sized pickup market which is dominated by the big 3 from North America. Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, and the Ram 1500.

According to C&D, at least the Titan ranks better than the Tundra lol.

looking up the information on that I didn't realize how far ahead the Titan was but its just about right if you think about it; the current generation tundra is nearing its end and will be replaced, so once the new Tundra comes out, Toyota could take back its position in the market.

Not really competition since both models are from Ford, but TFL truck did a comparison test between the F250 diesel and F150 Ecoboost to see which one would fare better for RV trailering. Long story short, the F-150 with a 5.0L V8 or a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 si the better chose because they have a higher towing rate.
