You don't buy a truck just for tomorrow, you buy a truck for the rest of your life. When you start investigating trucks, you need to think about all the time you're going to spend in it. Our team at Maguire Toyota wants to make the research process easy for you, so we've put together this quick 2021 Toyota Tundra vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 comparison.

We're committed to making sure that drivers near the Ithaca, Elmira, and Binghamton, New York, areas, have all of the information they need to make an informed decision. If you want more information, feel free to come by for a test drive.

2021 Toyota Tundra vs Chevy Silverado 1500 Comfort: Cozy and Convenient

While you'll be using the bed to move cargo, you'll be spending most of your time in the cab. Both the 2021 Toyota Tundra and the Chevy Silverado 1500 have available dual zone climate control. This means that come blistering summer or freezing winter, you and your passengers will be comfortable inside.

However, if you want that extra breath of fresh air, you should look at the Tundra's CrewMax cab. It has a power vertical-sliding rear window that you can lower with the push of a button. This fills your cabin with the smells of rain-drenched woodlands or sun-brushed plains. Unfortunately, the Silverado 1500 doesn't offer a similar feature.

2021 Toyota Tundra vs Chevy Silverado 1500 Technology: Connectivity Anywhere

For those long drives between worksites and across the vast stretches of nowhere dotting the landscape, you need an infotainment system designed for the long haul. Both the Tundra and the Silverado 1500 have available 8-inch displays with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.

However, if you find yourself among the vast stretches of nothingness and still need to stay in contact with the boss at the office, 4G Wi-Fi connectivity comes standard on the Tundra. This feature is available on the Silverado 1500, but you'll have to upgrade to a higher trim level if you want it.

2021 Toyota Tundra vs Chevy Silverado 1500 Safety Features: Calm and Peace of Mind

When it comes to peace of mind on the road, you want a safety system that has you in mind. Both vehicles offer a similar set of features-like Automatic High Beams and Lane Departure Alert-but these are optional on the Silverado 1500.

Most features come standard on the Tundra with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, which includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert
  • Automatic High Beams

The Tundra even outperforms the Silverado 1500 in terms of standard safety features. The Silverado comes standard with six air bags in its cabin while the Tundra offers eight. This means that in the unimaginable event of a collision, you'll be safe in both, but the Tundra has a distinct edge.
