A Showdown Between the Toyota Tacoma and Ford F-150

When the word “truck” comes to mind, it’s often associated with towing and hauling. The 2022 Toyota Tacoma and the 2022 Ford F-150 are more than capable in this department. One area where they truly shine, though, is off-road.

Matching Off-Road Capabilities

The Tacoma offers innovative Crawl Control. The throttle and brakes are automatically adjusted between five low-speed settings to help you focus on navigating across sand, mud, or other challenging terrain. The F-150 is available with a similar feature known as Trail Control™.

Drive Over Any Obstacle

The Tacoma also has a ground clearance of 9.4 inches across the board. Regardless of the trim level you select, you’ll have the height needed for steep inclines and bumpy roads. Adding to that, the undercarriage of the vehicle will be protected thanks to the available TRD Pro skid plate.

The F-150 offers comparable off-roading features for all types of excursions. However, if you’re hitting the trails in its base configuration, you’ll only have 8.7 inches of ground clearance to work with—watch out for that rock.

A Truck Made for a Tailgate

What about amenities in the truck bed? These trucks offer plenty. The insulated storage bins, however, are only available with the Tacoma. Pack them with ice to keep your drinks cold during a long ride or an even longer tailgate. They’re integrated into the bed, so they can easily double as a toolbox during the work week.
