2021 Toyota Tundra vs. Its Competition

2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Detroit has long dominated the full-size truck market, and it’s easy to see why.

Our favorite design is easily the Ram 1500 with its luxurious cabin and intriguing mild-hybrid tech, though reliability remains an issue.

Chevrolet and GMC have boldly styled trucks that are highly conventional once you peel back their untraditional styling.

They’re good, but not great.

The latest Ford F-150 is available in a massive range of trims, powertrains, and body configurations, and adds a hybrid to the lineup.

If you’re dead set on a Toyota, the automaker’s smaller Tacoma makes a great choice with its impressive off-road ability and sterling resale value.
