The 2014 Chevy Silverado vs. the 2014 Toyota Tundra
When it comes to tough-working pick-ups, the Silverado has become a standard. Harder working and more fuel efficient than ever before, the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500, like its predecessors, has become one of the most trusted names around the Florence area.
Get a closer look at the Chevy Silverado at Tom Gill Chevy, on Commerce Drive, just north of the Florence Mall.
How does the 2014 Silverado compare to the 2014 Tundra? Better fuel efficiency and a better warranty make the Silverado a more appealing option for many drivers. Here’s a closer look at how they match up.
The 2014 Silverado is Tough on Work and Easy Going at the Fuel Pump
The Silverado proves that pickups can be fuel-efficient. The Silverado’s 4.3L V6 engine delivers 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, all while maintaining an average of fuel efficiency rating of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The 270 hp V6 option on the Toyota Tundra comparatively gets a fuel efficiency rating of 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
The 355 hp 5.3L V8 on the Silverado maintains this efficiency; models average at about 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. Though there is more power on comparable 381 hp 5.7 V8 on the Tundra, efficiency also suffers, dropping down to an estimated 13/18 mpg.
There is also something to be said about having a strong warranty on a pick-up. Chevy backs up the 2014 Silverado with a 100,000-miles / 5-year powertrain warranty, compared with the 60,000-miles / 5-years powertrain warranty on the Tundra. Better yet, Chevy also includes an equally long roadside assistance warranty to help with those unexpected breakdowns. Toyota’s roadside assistance program ends after only 25,000-miles / 2-years. What plan would you rather have when the worst happens?
