Looking for a new truck but don’t know where to start? Perhaps you have considered a couple of the most popular trucks around, the Chevy Silverado and the Toyota Tundra. Both look good and have a comfortable interior, but only one deliver the hauling power you need from a truck.
2014 Toyota Tundra vs. 2014 Chevrolet Silverado
Although trucks used to be judged strictly on pulling power and tow ratings, those days have gone the way of bell bottom pants.
Now a truck needs to be more versatile. It needs to be able to drive the kids to sports practice after a long day of hauling re-bar. It needs to carry the whole group comfortable to a vacation on the lake while pulling the family boat effortlessly. In other word, there is more at stake for today’s truck buyer.
Both the 2014 Silverado also has a superior interior, with Chevrolet MyLink, upright instrument panel, and 4.2 inch color driver information center. Although the 2014 Toyota Tundra has a refreshed interior, is simply can’t keep up with the Silverado’s complete package of convenience and infotainment.
But let’s face it: capability is still king.
Both the 2014 Toyota Tundra and the 2014 Chevy Silverado are a new generation of the nameplates. While both received significant upgrades to the interior and exterior designs, Chevy is delivering three new technologically advanced engines, while Toyota is using the same powertrains on the 2014 Tundra that have been using since 2005.
When compared side-by-side, it becomes apparent that the 2014 Silverado is a far superior truck. Just like the previous generation, the 2014 Toyota Tundra comes with a base 4.0L V6. The base Silverado comes with an EcoTec 4.3L V6 that offers more power and better fuel economy. This engine is also going to deliver best in-class torque among all V6 engines.
Whether you put a focus on interior styles and convenience, exterior design, or work-truck capabilities, the Silverado always defeats the 2014 Toyota Tundra.
