The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2019 Toyota Tundra are popular choices in this crowded segment, but the Silverado 1500 clearly stands above the Tundra in so many ways.

Silverado 1500 Advantages
When it comes to the Silverado’s towing and payload capacity, there’s no contest. The Silverado hauls and tows significantly more than its closest rival. You’ll also get a wider selection of engines that offer better fuel economy, including a four-cylinder engine that the Tundra simply doesn’t offer. The Silverado also offers a regular cab/long bed configuration.
