Odds are, you've come across the 2020 Toyota Tundra and 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500. Both are excellent choices when it comes to your daily drives, long weekend road trips, and getting the job done at work. How will you know which is the better choice for your driving needs, though? That's where we can help.

Our team at Thompson Toyota has put together this vehicle comparison of the 2020 Tundra vs. Silverado 1500, so you can see for yourself which is the best pickup for your unique lifestyle.

Let's get started!

2020 Tundra vs Silverado 1500: Power and Performance

When it comes to power and performance ratings, of course you'll want only the strongest pickup to cruise from one job site to the next.

The 2020 Toyota Tundra takes the lead here, equipped with a standard 5.7L V8 engine that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado follows behind, with a standard 4.3L V6 that puts out 285 horsepower.

The Tundra also offers a larger fuel tank than the Silverado. You'll get a 38-gallon fuel tank with the Tundra, compared to the Silverado's 28.3-gallon tank, so you'll be able to get from one destination to the next without stopping as often.

Additionally, the Tundra offers a larger standard towing capacity of 9,800 pounds, compared to the Silverado's standard 7,400 pounds. With the Tundra, you'll be able to hitch up some larger equipment onto the back, like a boat or trailer to take on your next family vacation.

The Tundra also comes standard with an easy lower and lift tailgate. This feature allows for the tailgate to lower without heavily crashing down and potentially harming your cargo. Unfortunately, this feature is only an add-on with the Silverado.

Tundra vs Silverado: Interior Space and Technology

The Toyota Tundra also offers plenty of space for passengers of all sizes.

With seating for up to six riders in both vehicles, you'll find that you can utilize these pickups for soccer game drop-offs or workday carpooling. The rear seats in the Tundra CrewMax even recline, so your backseat riders will be especially grateful.

The Tundra also offers many other standard features when it comes to technology. Adaptive Cruise Control comes standard, while it's only offered as an additional feature on even the highest Silverado trim.

2020 Toyota Tundra Review

The Toyota Tundra also comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. This suite of advanced driver-assisting features comes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and more!

Unfortunately, this is another feature you'll have to upgrade to get with the Silverado 1500.

Toyota Tundra vs Chevy Silverado 1500: The Verdict

While both the 2020 Toyota Tundra and Chevy Silverado 1500 are excellent options for your next pickup, it's easy to see that the Tundra's impressive standard power, towing capacity, and safety features make this vehicle worth the first test drive.
