Toyota Tundra vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

  • Towing

    From off-roading with ATV's to taking your camping trailer on the road for your family vacation, the Toyota Tundra is an idea pickup truck for hauling heavy loads. In fact, with up to 10,200 pounds of towing capacity available when properly equipped, the Toyota Tundra pulls a lot more than the Chevy Silverado 1500, which can only move up to 9,400 pounds.

  • Power & Performance

    Naturally, every driver wants a truck that feels powerful, dynamic, and confidence-inspiring, even on rough terrain. Fortunately, with its available four-wheel drive systems and standard i-FORCE 4.6-liter V8 engine, the Toyota Tundra boasts a healthy 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque.  By comparison, the Chevy Silverado 1500 has much less standard power with its 285-horspower, 305 pound-feet-of-torque 4.3-liter V6 engine.

  • Safety Tech

    As with many new Toyota models, the Toyota Tundra comes with standard Toyota Safety Sense™P, an innovative suite of active safety systems designed to keep you and your loved ones secure on the road. Unfortunately, the Chevy Silverado 1500 doesn't offer much in the way of standard safety technology, meaning you'll have to pay extra if you want comparable peace of mind.

  • Available Bed Sizes

    Both the Toyota Tundra have three different bed lengths available: Short, Regular, and Long. However, the Toyota Tundra has both a shorter Short Bed length and a longer Long Bed length, so whether you're hauling heavy loads of brick or large items like lumber and PVC pipe, you'll find that the Toyota Tundra is a much more versatile option to suit your needs.

  • Standard Equipment

    The Ram 1500 is built as a work truck, and its standard features reflect that. In fact, when it comes to creature comforts, you'll find little more than cruise control on the base Ram 1500 trim. However, if you spring for the Toyota Tundra, you'll get a truck that's not only capable for work, but also offers amenities like heated mirrors, standard navigation and satellite radio, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and a rearview camera to boot.

  • American Made?

    Looking to buy an American-made truck? If so, you'll be happy to learn that the every Toyota Tundra is assembled in the Toyota San Antonio, TX truck plant. As for the Ram 1500, it used to be made only in the States, but now it's assembly is split between Mexico and Michigan.
