Fuel Economy

The Chevy Silverado’s direct fuel injection provides better fuel economy and keeps the intake much cleaner than cars with sequential MPI (multi-point injection). When it comes down to fuel economy, the Chevy Silverado’s gas mileage is 3 city and 4 highway miles per gallon better than the Toyota Tundra. With the Silverado, you’ll save hundreds of dollars in gas every year!

 

Vehicle Safety

Both the Silverado and Tundra have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Silverado has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver’s seat and to know when they’re engaged. The Tundra’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Silverado offers an optional collision warning system, which detects an impending crash through forward mounted sensors and flashes a bright light and sounds a loud, distinctive tone to warn the driver to brake or maneuver immediately to avoid a collision. The Tundra doesn’t offer a collision warning system.

Full-time four-wheel drive is optional on the Silverado. Full-time four-wheel drive gives added traction for safety in all conditions, not just off-road, like the only system available on the Tundra.

The Silverado’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane. The Tundra doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The Silverado offers optional OnStar®, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to get turn-by-turn driving directions, remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Tundra doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the Silverado and the Tundra have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and available rearview cameras.

 

Warranty Coverage

Both the Chevy Silverado and the Toyota Tundra feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties as well as 5-year/60,000-mile PowerTrain Limited warranties. However, the 2017 Chevy Silverado features an additional 2-year/24,000-mile Scheduled Maintenance warranty that is not offered by GMC or by any of its competitors. When you’re looking to buy a car, reliability is crucial, and Chevy’s excellent warranty coverage goes above and beyond to ensure its reliability and your satisfaction!

 

Summary

To sum it all up, the 2017 Chevy Silverado surpasses the Toyota Tundra in all of the above respects. Its unmatched fuel-economy for trucks of its class, its fantastic Warranty Coverage, and impeccable safety features makes the Chevy Silverado the smarter choice for car buyers.
