When it comes to choosing the right truck, we appreciate that there are plenty of options out there! From powertrain to performance to price, Canada’s top-selling pickups come loaded with a plethora of features that are geared towards different needs and uses. So why are so many Vernon drivers choosing the Toyota Tundra over competitors like the Ford F-150?
In this post, we’re highlighting essential Tundra features that set it apart from pickups like the F-150 and why it continues to be the truck of choice among folks from the Okanagan and beyond.
It’s no secret that our team loves the Toyota Tundra: it’s fun, powerful, loaded with the auto industry’s coolest tech, and darn good-looking if we say so ourselves. Let’s take a look at some key specs that make the Tundra such a formidable contender in the pickup truck market.
Tundra delivers more bang for your buck. Sure, trucks like the F-150 offer many similar features as the Tundra, but it will cost you thousands (and thousands…) of dollars more to unlock them. Toyota’s industry-best tech, safety, and comfort features are standard, offering drivers a top-tier truck ownership experience without the top-tier price tag. In fact, Toyota consistently offers more standard features across its vehicle lineup than just about any competing manufacturer, and has built an impressive reputation for its value-added vehicles.
Tundra TRD is off-road ready. All Toyota TRD models are highly regarded across the automotive industry for their high-performance off-roading capabilities. Tundra TRD has built-for-BC abilities, helping it climb mountains, cruise the coast, and tackle the road less travelled better than all the rest. Though the F-150 makes for a great work truck, it can’t keep up with the ruggedness of a Tundra TRD.
Designed with families in mind. The folks over at Toyota specifically designed the Tundra to grow with you as your needs and lifestyle change. The cabin is incredibly spacious, offering ample leg and shoulder room, plus enough space to comfortably fit three car seats across the back with a LATCH safety system. Plus with Toyota Connected Services and Toyota Safety Sense by your side, you’ll travel with confidence knowing that you, and your most precious cargo, are well protected.
Powerful and dependable performance. The F-150 is well known for being a beefy truck, but many are surprised to learn that you need to spring for upper trim levels and powertrains to unlock its full potential - and of course, it doesn’t come cheap. The F-150 XL and XLT come standard with a 3.3L V6 engine that’s good for 290 horsepower and a 7,700-pound max towing capacity. The Tundra? A 5.7L V8 engine is standard, delivering at least 381 horsepower and a 10,200-pound max towing capacity no matter which model you choose.
Toyota’s quality and reliability are unbeatable. Our favourite Tundra feature? That it’s backed by the Toyota name. More Canadians are choosing Toyota each year as the brand continues to topple the competition when it comes to reliability, warranty, innovative tech and safety, resale value, value, and so much more. When you slip into the driver’s seat of a Toyota, you’ll drive away knowing that you’ve made the right choice.
We’re confident that once you take a Toyota Tundra out for a test drive, you’ll see why so many BC drivers are choosing this capable and classy pickup truck over the competition.
