A lot of professionals, especially people who work in trades, find that a mid-size truck is too small for what they need but also see the numbers for a heavy-duty pickup as being much more than what they are looking for. In these cases, a full-size pickup that is not a heavy-duty model is the perfect choice. With so many full-size trucks out there, however, it can be hard to choose, so looking at two trucks like the 2019 Chevy Silverado vs 2019 Toyota Tundra can be quite helpful.
While these are both excellent trucks that can get a lot of work done, there are quite a few ways where the Chevy Silverado proves itself to be superior. For one thing, the Silverado starts off at a lower price than the Toyota Tundra, while also providing far more options for different engines and overall configurations. Beyond simple options, however, the 2019 Chevy Silverado has more powerful engines available than the 2019 Toyota Tundra, which means it has a higher maximum towing capacity and payload.
The good news is that both of these trucks have great interior technology and safety features, though there are some ways the Silverado pulls ahead at higher trim levels. In particular, the driver information display is larger in the Silverado and it has an available head-up display, which the Tundra lacks. All in all, these are both great trucks, but the 2019 Chevy Silverado is simply a better choice for a lot of people in need of a powerful full-size pickup without going all the way up to a heavy-duty model.
