Tundra vs. F-150 vs. TRX towing 8,000-lbs, which is the quickest truck when towing?

We know that, with a regular drag race with the Tundra vs. F-150 vs. TRX, the end result would be inevitable. With well over 700-horsepower, the supercharged Ram TRX has been murdering vehicles on our short dragstrip. For an off-road truck, it has an amazing grip and spine-cracking acceleration.

Still, the beastly TRX is not very good at towing, or is it?

There is a chance that… oh who are we kidding? I mean, there is no WAY for the Ford or Toyota to challenge the ridiculous Ram TRX. No way – no how. It’s like pitting an over-caffeinated stallion against a mule and an athletic burro.

Check out the TRX vs Raptor Ike Gauntlet (here).

Still, the outcome could be interesting. Keep in mind, the load is just under 8,000 lbs, so it will be interesting to see how quickly these trucks make it to 60 mph.

The trucks:

2021 Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra has a 381 horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 that makes 401 lbs-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. It has a 4.30 rear axle ratio, and a proven reliability record. While the Tundra is rather old, it’s still a solid all-around truck.

2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid

Sporting a new hybrid powertrain, the 2021 Ford F-150 makes a (combined) 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission and, like the other two – it’s four-wheel drive. It comes with a 3.73 rear axle ratio.

2021 Ram TRX

Our Ram TRX comes with a supercharged 6.2 -liter V8. It makes 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The TRX has a 3.55 rear axle ratio.

Which truck is fastest from 0 to 60 mph while pulling about 8,000-lbs? It’s the Tundra vs. F-150 vs. TRX – and you already know the winner. But it’s a fun watch nonetheless.
