2018 Ford F-150 vs. 2018 Toyota Tacoma Comparison (KBB/the trusted resource)

The Ford F-150 and Toyota Tacoma are the best-selling trucks in their respective classes. The F-150 tops full-size truck sales and is the best-selling vehicle in America because of its best-in-class capability and wide variety of engines, cabs, bed lengths, and trim levels.

Another feather in Ford’s cap is that the F-150 also tends to be on the leading edge of technology that makes it easier to tow, haul and enjoy a comfortable interior.

Ford continues to advance the full-size truck segment, a move that most notably started when the company switched the F-150 to a military-grade aluminum body and offered turbocharged V6 engines, moves that make the F-150 more efficient without sacrificing capability. In some ways the Tacoma is more conservative of the two.

If you are choosing between the F-150 and the Tacoma, know that the Ford’s towing and payload capacity is greater than the smaller Tacoma’s, and the Ford F-150 is also the best in all full-size trucks as well.

The F-150 also offers cool driver assist aids that make it easier and safer to tow; as an example, the truck’s available blind-spot monitoring also covers anything that’s in your trailer’s blind spot.

There are easy ways to access cargo, such as the tailgate-mounted side step. And the SuperCrew’s rear-seat legroom is exceptional even in the middle seat. The Ford’s smaller-displacement turbocharged engines are efficient yet powerful, but for those who want more traditional options, there’s a non-turbo V6 and V8. There’s even a diesel option now!

And Toyota isn’t the only manufacturer that has a Baja-tested off-road tough truck; for that, you can consider the awesome Raptor.

The legendary Ford Bronco

Back and badder than ever. The legendary Ford Bronco.

The Ford Bronco is back by popular demand. The iconic SUV was one of the world’s leading 4×4 vehicles for three decades, from the mid-sixties until the mid-nineties. This new generation 2020 Bronco boasts the latest in smart technology and a bold new look while remaining true to its rugged roots. 

The rumors are true: the Ford Bronco is coming back!


“We heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.”


The Ford Bronco was first introduced in 1965 as a 1966 model. The original Bronco became an icon of an adventurous lifestyle and off-road capability. Available options during the 10-year production of the first Bronco included a CB radio, an auxiliary gas tank, a power take-off, a winch and a post-hole digger.


The Bronco would continue in production for 30 years, seeing a total of five generations, and growing from what was considered in 1966 to be a compact SUV to eventually share height and width specs with the Ford F-150.


The rugged new Bronco will be a midsize SUV, and will be part of the global Ford vehicle portfolio in 2020.


The Ford Bronco will be manufactured at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan, which is the same plant where the 1966 through 1996 models were built.

“Wonderful experience.”

We were very impressed by the dealership and especially with Derek. This was our best experience with an automobile salesman ever. He made the process easy and enjoyable. Always had time to answer our questions and explained all the features on our new car. We would definitely recommend Derek to our family and friends.
