Ford and Chevrolet are leaders in the truck industry, but Toyota isn’t lagging far behind. Between the manufacturers’ 2018 truck lineups, what one has the best pickup option for you? The Toyota Tacoma is smaller than the others because it’s considered a light-duty pickup while its competitors are meant for heavy-duty jobs. That doesn’t mean it lacks in features and ability by any means, but it won’t stand up to the hauls and tows that the F-150 and Silverado 1500 will. However, the Tacoma has a lower price tag than the heavier-duty pickups and could be an excellent option for those who need a modest pickup for small jobs. The 2018 F-150 and 2018 Silverado 1500 are very similar to each other in style, price, and ability. While the F-150 is extremely rugged and powerful with its range of engine options, packages, and configurations, the Silverado 1500 is a bit more refined with quality interior materials, a quiet cabin, and comfortable interior space. Either one will do the trick when it comes to off-roading or hauling, but the F-150’s more modest standard engine actually delivers more torque than the Silverado 1500’s and offers a better fuel range for both city and highway driving.
