2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
2015 Toyota Tundra
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado would be the perfect match for any Florence or Cincinnati driver looking for capability, modernity, and might all rolled into one pickup truck. Its two V8 engine offerings pack more power than the competition, and the fuel economy and features you’ll get are a steal at the latest Silverado’s affordable price. See how it compares to the 2015 Toyota Tundra to get a better sense of how the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado excels across the board.
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado achieves surprising fuel economy for a truck of its girth, and much better than that of the 2015 Toyota Tundra, at that. The Silverado’s entry-level engine, a 4.3L V6 generating 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, reaches an EPA-estimated 18 city mpg and 24 highway mpg. The best the Tundra can do is 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.
Depending on how you configure your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado – type of cab and size of the bed – you’ll pay anywhere from $27,365 for a standard model to $36,115 for a heftier version. The 2015 Toyota Tundra, on the other hand, starts at $28,510 on the low end and surges as high as $44,925. Based on what each pickup has to offer at their respective price points, the Tundra severely overcharges.
Power is always a priority when it comes to purchasing a pickup, and the pair of V8 engines available on the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado far exceeds those under the hood of the 2015 Toyota Tundra in this respect. The Silverado has a 5.3L V8 that produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, or a 6.2L V8 that makes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft. Compare those numbers to the Tundra’s 4.6L V8 churning out 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque or the 5.7L V8 putting out 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque – and the Silverado’s output speaks for itself.
Two of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado’s topmost trims, when properly equipped, can haul anywhere from 9,100 to 12,000 pounds, while the most the 2015 Toyota Tundra can tow is between 9,800 and 10,500 pounds. If you know you’ll need your pickup for heavy loads, choosing the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and its maximum towing capacity makes the most sense.
These days, a pickup isn’t complete without features inside that make your drive all the more relaxing and enjoyable and of course, keep you connected. The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado does just that with available OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi ensuring that you’ll never miss a beat. On select trims, the 2015 Toyota Tundra offers app integration, Bluetooth, and voice control, but lacks Internet to keep you in the loop on the go.
