If you're looking the best in power and capability for your West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern travels, there's nothing better than a truck. With so many robust models on the market right now, you'll have plenty of options to choose to from. However, two driver favorites remain to be the Ford F-150 and the Toyota Tacoma. But which one is better for you?

To help you find out, Fred Beans Ford of West Chester has been to work comparing the Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tacoma. Below, you will find our results and discover which one will become the right pickup for you.

2019 F-150 vs 2019 Tacoma: Performance

There's no doubt that these two trucks have some serious power under the hood. However, when looking closer, one may leave you wanting a little more oomph where it counts.

The Toyota Tacoma is standardly equipped with the 2.7L 4-cylinder engine which generates up to 159 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque. However, a more powerful engine is also available. The 3.5L V6 supplies an impressive 275 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque ready for what you throw its way.

Though the Tacoma packs some serious punch, the Ford F-150 has it fairly beat. Even with its standard 3.3L V6 engine, you'll get more strength with 290 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque. Though, it doesn't end there. This truck has a whopping six engines to choose from, the most powerful being the High Output 3.5L EcoBoost®. This gives you a highly regarded 450 HP and 510 lb-ft of torque. Now, that's some power.

Ford F-150 vs Toyota Tacoma: Towing & Payload

With great power comes great towing capability and these two trucks deliver. The F-150, when standardly equipped, has the ability to tow up to 8,500 pounds with extreme ease. With many different engines to choose from, the towing only increases from there. In fact, the max towing capacity of the Ford F-150 reaches an amazing 13,200 pounds with a max payload of 3,270 when properly equipped.

On the other hand, we have the 2019 Tacoma. Though it sports a less robust engine standardly, it still has the ability to tow up to 6,400 pounds. Unfortunately, the towing rating maxes out at 6,800 pounds with a top payload of 1,440. These stats are both considerably less than its competitor.

2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma: Interior Space

Having plenty of room inside of your truck is crucial. Ford knows this, which is why the max seating capacity of this pickup reaches up to six people. Plus, the front seat is incredibly spacious. With a headroom of 40.8 inches, 43.9 inches of legroom, and a shoulder space of 66.7 inches, stretching out in the Ford F-150's interior is a breeze.

The Toyota Tacoma is also quite roomy but only offers space for five passengers. Its front seat might feel a little more cramped than the Ford model, as well. Its dimensions measure in at 39.7 inches of headroom, 42.9 inches of legroom, and 58.3 inches of shoulder room.
