2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2021 Toyota Tundra

2021 Chevy Silverado 1500

The competition among full-sized pickups is downright fierce, and Chevy trucks work overtime to stay on top of their game. That’s why the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is such a compelling contender, especially when it’s compared to a truck like the 2021 Toyota Tundra.

If you’re trying to decide which pickup is right for you, stop by Executive Chevrolet and discover what our new Chevy truck can do out on the road.



Let’s start under the hood. The Toyota Tundra offers only one powerplant (a 381-horsepower V8 engine), compared to seven different engine choices with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. One of those seven powertrain options is a diesel engine, which you won’t find in the Toyota Tundra.

Because you have so many power sources to choose from, you can prioritize whatever you want, from efficiency and power to off-roading and traction.


Capacities and Capabilities

You can do much more with the Chevy Silverado 1500 when it comes to towing. Its 2,280-pound maximum payload is higher than the 1,730-pound payload that comes with the Toyota Tundra. Plus, the Toyota Tundra can’t hold a candle to the 13,300-pound towing capacity that comes with the Chevy Silverado 1500.

When you visit our Wallingford Chevy dealership, you’ll also get to see the Multi-Flex™ tailgate that comes with the Chevy Silverado 1500, which gives you more options for cargo management. You won’t find this feature in any other truck on the market, including the Toyota Tundra.


Safety Features

The Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Toyota Tundra come with a number of advanced safety features, but there are differences that set our new Chevy truck apart. Specific safety features like tire pressure monitoring, a new trailering camera, and the ability to set up custom trailer profiles do not come with the Toyota Tundra, giving you more confidence while towing.

Modern drivers expect more from their trucks, and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 simply offers more of everything.
