A pickup truck can be the best tool to have in your arsenal. If you’re looking for a work truck, you’ve considered the 2020 Toyota Tundra and the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. This comparison looks at these two models, showcasing the differences to help make choosing easier for you.
Power determines how much weight you can tow and carry. While both the Tundra and Silverado 1500 offer solid performance numbers, when it comes to standard power, the Tundra achieves more. Its standard 5.7-liter V8 engine puts out 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado’s standard 4.3-litre EcoTec3 V6 engine only puts out 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This means if you purchase the Tundra, you can get more power for a similar price tag.
The Tundra also comes with the largest fuel tank in its class, offering you the chance to fill up your truck with 144 litres of gasoline. The Silverado’s tank can only fit up to 106 litres.
Convenience & functions
Pickup trucks give you more convenient functions and storage than other vehicles, making them a solid option if you want utility and versatility.
For instance, the Tundra comes with an available class-exclusive power rear window makes it easy to control how much air your truck’s cabin gets. It also comes with fold-up rear seats in the Tundra Double Cab and CrewMax body styles, allowing you to load up even more cargo in your truck’s interior. While the Silverado 1500 also offers fold-up rear seats, they’re not as widely available as they are on the Tundra.
While both the Tundra and the Silverado 1500 come available with a range of features, the Tundra offers more of them as standard, so you don’t have to pay extra for some of the Tundra’s best functions.
Every Tundra comes with standard Automatic Limited-Slip Differential, which is ideal for tackling the rough roads around High River. The Tundra also comes standard with a trailer brake controller and trailer assist, which means you don’t have increase the amount you pay for peace of mind while trailering – something you will have to do if you opt for a Silverado 1500.
When you’re behind the wheel of your pickup truck, you will feel more confident if that truck is the 2020 Tundra. This truck comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense® P package, which gives you safety technologies like Lane Departure Alert, a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Auto High Beam. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t come standard with this type of safety technology, only offering it on its higher trim levels for more money.
