F-150 Ecoboost Rips Tundra 5.7L a new one in Tug o War (Video)

I know Tug's don't prove anything about trucks...But I thought some of you Ecoboost owners might get a laugh outta this clip.

Tundras are geared towards people that should probably really be driving a car, but have a inferiority complex.

Unlike countless other _____ vs. _____ bumper pull videos, I will give them credit for swapping the trucks/ends. That at least quiets the "that side of the road had waaayyy more ice/snow on it" complaints.



Having said that, it is always nice seeing a Ford doing well.

It shows that the F-150 had the better tires for the conditions there, not much more ...
Good to watch anyway though.

The Ford also weighs quite a bit more, giving it in edge in traction in a setup like this. All the power in the world doesn't mean squat if you can't get it to the ground.

The Tundra now probably has a tweaked frame.

Man, those Tundras are as hideous as ever.

Agreed. Ugly as hell.

AND LOVED this clip. Right after I bought my truck, my best friend bought a brand new Tundra... and we love to give each other hell. This is going on her FB page.

One of co-workers has a regular cab short bed Tundra and I think it's sweet. He hunts and the truck lives in the woods. It has all kinds of goodies hanging from it's underneath like packed mud, bushes, weeds and such. This truck is anything but babied, in fact it's abused and keeps coming back for more.

IMHO, the Tundra is a great truck, watch out for the next generation. I'd proudly own one in a minute before I'd own anything else.

I enjoyed the video but it only proves that two idiots were dumb enough to hook up their trucks to each other.

IMHO, the Tundra is a colossal POS even discounting the wet-noodle it has for a frame and the pathetically under built tailgates. I too have a friend with a Tundra, a 2008 DC 5.7 2WD with the TRD (an appropriate acronym to suit the truck's malodorous appearing exterior) package. EDIT: It's the TSS package.

At 75,000 miles:
-bad air injection pump (nearly a $3000 repair and causes the truck to enter a limp mode making it UNSAFE to drive)
-bad a/c compressor
-piston slap
-torque converter shudder
-trans or shift schedule issue that results in feeling every single downshift coming to a stop, and the occasional dramatic bang.

The Toyota dealer has NO ANSWER for the transmission issues.

That's just the quantifiable malfunctions. There's things like interior trim quality which is absolutely atrocious, (silver panel in the center of the dash missing large chunks of paint around the radio), leather seats showing premature signs of wear, etc. This truck is NOT abused, it's simply lacking in durability right down to the design/engineering level.

The Tundra has a long way to go to catch up to it's domestic rivals as an overall truck, much less the F150. A complete redesign or extreme MCE is required to do so.

The Tundra's do have a sweet engine (5.7), but even that has been trumped by several of the newer offerings. There's NO WAY I would buy a Tundra when it is pretty much the least competitive (and durable) full-size offering out there at the moment.

I don't even need to think twice before saying I would take a 6.2 Silverado/Sierra, 5.0 F150, EB F150, 6.2 F150, or a 2009+ Hemi Ram over a Tundra. All are superior trucks.

Yeah I have, I think the double cab Tundra is by far the worst looking truck currently offered by any manufacturer. The Tundra works best (appearance wise) as a reg cab or crew max, IMO. I wouldn't call any of them even remotely attractive though, it's kind of like arguing who's hottest out of Kathy Bates, Rosie O'Donnell and Roseanne Barr.

Big Bad you forgot one other truck, well.... at least I would probably even take a 5.6 Titan over the disgusting Tundra. But at that point I would start haulingcrap with my wifes Subaru
