Don’t let it’s beautiful and striking exterior fool you — the 2017 Toyota Tacoma is built tough. Loaded with an energetic engine and built to tackle even the toughest jobs, the Tacoma is the ideal truck for Marietta drivers. Take a look at this head-to-head match-up with the 2017 Ford F-150, and see how impressive the Tacoma is for yourself at Marietta Toyota.


Boasting a 3.5L 24-valve DOHC direct-injection Atkinson-cycle V6 engine, the new Toyota Tacoma delivers 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of available torque. This exceptional power affords it a payload capacity of nearly 1,200 pounds and an available towing capacity of nearly 65,000 pounds. The Tacoma seats five, so its cab is more spacious than most pick-ups, but it does not sacrifice power to achieve that space. And with an available 23 mpg highway, the Tacoma is also one of the most efficient pick-ups on the road.

The 2017 Ford F-150 offers an EPA-estimated 18 mpg highway. What’s more, the F-150 only provides the more standard truck seating of three passengers. The F-150 does offer impressive power, with its 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine delivering 325 horsepower, but its build keeps it from being as versatile as the Tacoma. The Tacoma offers enough power to tackle even the toughest of jobs while also featuring a sporty style, a comfortable and spacious interior, and a performance that is as enjoyable in the city as it is on the job site. The F-150 lacks balance with its aggressive power, rigid chassis, and heavy body.


Now let’s take a look at the features that each vehicle has to offer Vinings drivers. We’ll start with the 2017 Tacoma:

  • Black TRD pro leather-trimmed seats

  • Heated seats

  • 6-speaker JBL premium audio system

  • Entune app suite

  • Integrated navigation

  • Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging

Next, let’s see how those features compare to those offered by the 2017 F-150:

  • Cloth seats

  • 4-speaker audio system

  • Auxiliary audio input

  • Available navigation

Which Vehicle is Right for You?

The 2017 Ford F-150 is powerful, and it does hold slight advantages in the key category of raw power. But it lacks finesse and versatility — qualities drivers near the Smyrna area need. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma nearly matches the F-150 in power, but it offers more interior space as well as a wider selection of high-quality features. The Tacoma is more efficient as well, giving it the edge in this match-up.
