2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2014 Toyota Tundra
Finding a truck that combines both high performance and fuel efficiency ratings isn’t nearly as difficult as it sounds. Schaumburg area truck drivers who are looking for a light-duty truck that delivers plenty of payload capability and costs less at the pump will want to take a look at the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 or the 2014 Toyota Tundra. Here at Biggers Chevy in Elgin, we know the new Silverado 1500 is the way to go, and we have the numbers to back it up!
- Fuel Economy: The standard 4.3L V6 under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 puts out a whopping 305 lb-ft of peak torque for fast acceleration on demand. This engine is also good for your wallet, as it earns an estimated 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The 2014 Toyota Tundra’s 4.6L V8 only gets an estimated 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
- Versatile Cargo Capacity: For tall, light loads that might end up moving around quite a bit in transit, the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 has stake post holes in the truck bed. These can be used to properly secure unwieldy payloads. The cargo box in the new Silverado is also completely welded to the chassis for improved stiffness and to eliminate corrosion spots. The 2014 Toyota Tundra does not have stake post holes and its cargo box is bolted to the bed frame.
- Conveniences: In order to ensure that the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 lasts as long as possible, it comes with a standard Oil Life Monitor system which calculates oil change maintenance intervals based on your driving conditions. The new Silverado also has an available feature that tilts the rearview mirrors when the truck shifts into reverse, allowing for a better view of the curb. The 2014 Toyota Tundra does not have an oil life monitor and it does not offer automatically adjusting rearview mirrors.
