2014 Ford F-150 vs. Its Competition

2014 Ford F-150
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Today's full-size pickup truck has a powerful drivetrain--six- or eight-cylinder--with good gas mileage, high levels of feature content, and plush interiors.

It's only bare bones if you really want it that way.

In that arms race, the Nissan Titan loses out: it's the oldest truck in the class, the least configurable, and it has the fewest luxury features to go with its thirsty, but admittedly throaty V-8 engine.

The Toyota Tundra's new this year, and its awkward looks have been softened, but it doesn't make any huge strides in performance or ruggedness.

The GM trucks--the Silverado and Sierra--have been revamped, and fare much better, with significant progress in interior quality, connectivity, and V-6 economy.

The F-150's toughest competitor? The Ram 1500, already possessed with the best ride in the class and the best interior, got a new V-6 and eight-speed automatic for 2013, and gets a turbodiesel option for 2014.

Quick Specs
The 2014 Ford F-150 grabs a share of the full-size pickup truck lead thanks to towing, technology, and toughness.
The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models get a brawny yet upscale new look, strong and efficient new engines, and a roomier, more refined interior with the latest infotainment features.
The 2014 GMC Sierra gets a much stronger footing in its tug-of-war with Ford and Ram, thanks to new powertrains, new infotainment features, and great gas mileage.
The 2014 Nissan Titan performs well, but no longer competes with the rest of the segment in many respects.
A fresh new look and an upgraded interior with new technology make the 2014 Toyota Tundra an intriguing truck, but lackluster powertrains keep it from shining.
The 2014 Ram 1500 brings a new turbodiesel to its class-best fuel economy ratings; it's also tops in cabin finish and infotainment, but lags in towing.
