When you depend on a pickup to help you go above and beyond, you can’t settle for second best. The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the 2017 Toyota Tundra both have a lot to offer, but only one can meet all your needs for work, recreation, and travel. Learn how these models compare head to head, and make plans to check out the massive Silverado 1500 inventory at McClinton Chevrolet in Parkersburg.
Both of these models offer similar amounts of standard performance. But if you need max power, the 2017 Silverado 1500 is available with a 6.2L V8 engine that produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque and can handle tow loads of up to 12,500 pounds. The most power that the 2017 Tundra can produce comes from an available 5.7L V8 that puts out 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque and is limited to 10,500 pounds of towing.
If you plan to drive with heavy loads or in rough conditions, you want to know you’re well protected from all the hazards of the road. The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 earned a perfect five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, and independent tests showed that it could stop in 122 feet when traveling 60 mph. The newest Tundra was awarded just four stars for safety and takes 130 feet to reach a full stop.
The 2017 Silverado 1500 costs thousands less than the Tundra, but the introductory trim comes standard with features you won’t find on the more expensive model. These include Xenon headlights for superior visibility, active grille shutters to improve fuel economy, and vinyl upholstery that stands up better to wear and tear.
