Ford F-150 Head to Head Pickup Comparison Tool

We know one size does not fit all – if you’ve ever bought socks with that claim, but the heel portion ended up on your calves, you know. Same goes with vehicles. That is why Ford has created the Head to Head Pickup Comparison tool for those of you shopping for an F-150.

Head over to, where you’ll find tons of data and interactive graphics so that you can pick a powertrain that meets your needs in fuel economy, horsepower, torque and capability. And here’s the bonus: it lets you see how your pick compares to the competition – the Dodge Ram, Toyota Tundra and Chevy Silverado.

To use the tool, you’ll first have to choose whether your truck is for work or play, then you’ll utilize a sliding scale of 0 to 3,060 pounds for determining how much weight you expect to haul. The graphics will drop stuff into the bed based on the number and usage, such as hay, a dirt bike, boulders or grills. It will also ask you about towing, ranging from 0 to 11,300 pounds, in which you might just find a race car trailer or boat now attached to your virtual pickup.

Once you’ve helped the configurator determine the numbers, it will recommend the most efficient engine, as well as offer a detailed comparo of the competition. The site also has a video detailing the four available Ford engines: the 3.7-liter four-valve Ti-VCT V6, the 5.0-liter four-valve dual-overhead-camshaft Ti-VCT V8, the 6.2-liter two-valve single-overhead-camshaft V8 and the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT EcoBoost®. Torture Test videos are also there for your entertainment, where an F-150 equipped with the EcoBoost goes through just that: torture testing. (Spoiler alert: No problem!)

The tool reveals potential fuel savings based on how you suggested your F-150 would be used, and you can include annual mileage, the current price of fuel and how many years the truck will be driven. A productivity screen will help you understand the capability differences over time by calculating how much weight each truck can tow and how much fuel will be consumed. Choosing how many days the truck will be used will update the results.

On the site you’ll have access to links to stories and reviews about the F-150 and a photo gallery as well. You can also print the info learned from the comparison tool, keep on building and then price an F-150, and even share the tool findings on Facebook and Twitter.

Bob Stringham As an engineer who has had the opportunity to supervise the accelerated endurance tests of several medium sized gas turbine engines, I would like to applaud the Ford powerplant engineers for such an interesting public test. It was most impressive that the post-test teardown showed such remarkably little wear, given the severity of the test conditions. Of course, this engine was taken from a currently in-production line, which begs the question, how many similar engines were subjected to this kind of testing in research and development prior to committing it to production. . . . doubtless quite a few. In which case, the outcome was probably not surprising to the Ford staff. Thanks for sharing this - it was very enjoyable to get insight into the new Eco-boost technology.

Andrew Weigle great trucks Chevy does stack up well against the f 150 tho dad has an 07 that has around 53,000 and that thing is rock solid and has a lot of acceleration that has been likened to muscle car like quickness that named it truck of the yr for 07 I am most likely gonna take over payments on it gets great fuel mileage too (just took it 4 hrs away for a few days) guess that truck is the reason for the raptor as priory the f 150 did not have that kind of acceleration.... no loser here if i don't get his truck for some reason i9t will be an f150 funny how Ford always says "best seller for 43 yrs straight" when the f 150 is the best seller in a SERIES of the 150 - 350 and GM sells 2 truck lines (not even going to compare a crappy dodge here) both are darn near equals a lot of the old 150's have tons of rust 9I have seen some newer ones with tons of rust too) guess it depends on who the owner and climate is both are a + trucks seen some Silverado commercials with owners having over 2 million and 67,000 miles wonder if the 150 is capable of that???
