The Toyota Tundra VS The Chevrolet Silverado

Like many drivers searching for a new pickup you do a little bit of research to know what each truck has to offer, which truck best meets your needs, and which truck is the best bang for your buck.  To help our customer easily find the information they need to make a well-informed decision we have compared the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to the Toyota Tundra in all the ways that matter most.

Standard Advanced Safety

When it comes to advanced safety the Toyota Tundra has set the bar with more standard advanced safety features than the Chevrolet Silverado. Every Tundra is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense which includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. All of these features are only available on the Chevrolet Silverado. Another feature that is only available on the Silverado is a rearview camera; which is standard on the Tundra.


Powerful performance is a top priority for drivers shopping for a new truck to tackle all of their towing and hauling needs. While the Silverado has three engines to choose from, the Tundra come standard with a V8 that has a higher towing ability than the Silverado.

To get a Silverado that is comparably well-equipped will cost you quite a bit more; almost $4,000 more. The Toyota Tundra has a starting MSRP of $31,120 with all of its standard features.
