The 2014 Toyota Tundra vs. the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500When Bradenton and West Samoset drivers need the best in power and dependability for work or fun, they know that a pickup truck like the 2014 Toyota Tundra is probably their best bet. Toyota’s latest pickup makes a strong case for being your next vehicle, but is it the best option around?

As your West Samoset-area Chevy dealer we at Cox Chevrolet feel like you might be better off with the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500. This GM-engineered pickup is built to last. Chevy also gives you plenty of options. You can choose a barebones work truck or high-tech work machine.

Let’s see how these pickups stack up to each other, though. Maybe the Tundra actually is better…

Trust General Motors for Efficiency

When you’re using your pickup day in and day out, you need to have one of the most efficient options available, especially when gas prices seem to just keep climbing up.

That’s why we recommend the redesigned 2014 Silverado 1500 to our drivers. Its 24 mpg highway and 18 mpg city fuel economy bests most pickups—including the Tundra’s 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

Many drivers are surprised to find the Silverado’s 24 mpg doesn’t mean a sacrifice in power, but it’s true. Its 4.3L V6 is rated at 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque—plenty for almost any need.

Chevrolet Provides Plenty of Protection

When looking at a big pickup truck, reliability is the key to getting the most for your money. While the rigors of daily work can put a strain on any vehicle, Chevrolet’s pickup offers you more peace of mind with a 100,000-mile / five-year powertrain warranty with roadside assistance that beats the 60,000-mile / five-year warranty on the Tundra.

Chevy also gives drivers an added three years or 36,000 miles of corrosion coverage; Toyota doesn’t offer any such protection.
