2016 Ford F-150 vs. Its Competition

2016 Ford F-150 Limited
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Ram 1500 is the only non-heavy-duty full-size pickup to offer a diesel engine, and for now, it has the highest highway fuel economy ratings of any pickup truck sold in America.The full-size pickup market is well-established, and equally well divided along brand lines.

The Tundra was recently updated with a new exterior and a much-needed set of interior upgrades, and is the only SAE J2807-certified pickup.

Chevy's Silverado was all-new for 2014, with efficient new engines, a fresh new look, and upgraded interior design.

GMC's Sierra is largely a doppelganger to the Silverado, but with a higher-quality interior in top-level trims.

Quick Specs
8.6
The 2016 Ford F-150, fresh off a transformation that made it leaner yet much-improved in most ways, gets new Sync 3 infotainment and trailer-backup wizardry.
8.0
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado takes a traditional truck path but counters that with a comfortable, refined interior and a mother lode of technology.
8.2
Rugged, handsome simplicity sums up the attraction of the 2016 GMC Sierra, which charms in many ways and doesn't overcomplicate in any.
7.6
The 2016 Toyota Tundra has authentic truck talent, but ultimately its powertrain choices, fuel economy, and configurations are limited, compared to domestic rivals.
8.2
The 2016 Ram 1500 will win over full-size truck buyers looking for a diesel offering and an opulent interior, but safety scores need improvement.
