Probably boils down to personal taste in regards to styling, price, and features. Most Ecoboost owners are going to vote for the Ford, and most Tundra owners for the Toyota. Either one will do the job.

You're right, I guess a better question would have been is one any more capable than the other. I know what the numbers say,
I just wanted to hear from owners with actual towing experience. So far I've got great responses. Thanks.

I have only had my FW for a year and have not taken it out west yet. Before I purchased my Tundra I did a little research on 3/4 ton trucks that use gas. I considered a GMC but the horsepower was something like 345 HP and towing capacity was 7,000#. My Tundra has a 381 HP engine and 10,000#+.

I have only been to Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania and as far south to North Fort Myers, Fl. I travel 60/61 MPH and average 9.2 to 11 MPG. Unless I decide to get a bigger or heavier FW I will keep my Tundra. Over the past 25 years I have only needed to replace oil and filters, tires, batteries and windshield wipers.

you must be talking 1500 without tow package .

If you tow in the mountains and high elevations, then the ecoboost is your best bet as there is no degradation in power and towing capability with this engine compared to the Tundra.

However, if you are a sea level kind of guy, then the Tundra is a great machine an should last longer and be more reliable.

If you do decide on the Ford, make sure you get the Max Tow Package as a minimum unless your vehicle is simply a grocery getter.

Toyota ..why lol

The big 3 are light years ahead of the rest still....and cost of maintenance will likely be cheaper.

Except the Toyota rarely requires anything other than routine oil, fluids and filter changes.

Love my F 150 EB but it has a 3.73 rear end and a Max tow package which includes sway control. This combination allows 11,300# towing with a Weight distribution Hitch. Love this truck. I would recommend the 3.73 over the 3.55 rear end.

There's a reason the F150 always finishes 1st or 2nd and Toyota finishes either last second to last in all towing and truck comparisons.
Just Google 1/2 ton shootouts or towing comparisons. While the Tundra may be a good truck it just doesn't have the same goods as an F150. Last I read it doesn't even have tow mirrors or a built in tow brake.

That statement is absurd.
