For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Toyota Tundra have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer pretensioners for its rear seat belts.

The Toyota Tundra has standard driver and front passenger side knee airbags mounted low on the dashboard. These airbags helps prevent the driver and front passenger from sliding under their seatbelts or the main frontal airbags; this keeps them better positioned during a collision for maximum protection. Knee airbags also help keep the legs from striking the dashboard, preventing knee and leg injuries in the case of a serious frontal collision. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer knee airbags.

The Tundra has standard Active Headrests, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Headrests system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The Tundra has a standard Secondary Collision Brake, which automatically applies the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

Both the Tundra and the Silverado 1500 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available four-wheel drive, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does 35 MPH front crash tests on new vehicles. In this test, results indicate that the Toyota Tundra is safer than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500:

Side impacts caused 23% of all road fatalities in 2018, down from 29% in 2003, when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety introduced its side barrier test. In order to continue improving vehicle safety, the IIHS has started using a more severe side impact test: 37 MPH (up from 31 MPH), with a 4180-pound barrier (up from 3300 pounds). The results of this newly developed test demonstrates that the Toyota Tundra Crew Cab Pickup is safer than the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab:

The Toyota Tundra achieved a “Top Safety Pick” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the 2024 model year. This recognition was based on its impressive performance in the small overlap frontal crash test, updated side impact crash test, headlight evaluations, and pedestrian crash prevention testing. The Silverado 1500 is not a “Top Safety Pick” for 2024.

For smoother operation, better efficiency and fewer moving parts, the engines in the Tundra have an overhead cam design, rather than the old pushrod design of some of the engines in the Silverado 1500.

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Tundra has a 776-amp battery. The Silverado 1500 only offers a standard 730-amp battery.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2022 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Toyota vehicles are more reliable than Chevrolet vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Toyota above average in long-term dependability. With 34 more problems per 100 vehicles in the first three years of ownership, Chevrolet is rated lower.

From surveys of all its subscribers, Consumer Reports’ January 2024 Auto Issue reports that Toyota vehicles are more reliable than Chevrolet vehicles. Consumer Reports ranks Toyota second in overall reliability. Chevrolet is ranked 20th.

Regenerative brakes improve the Tundra i-FORCE MAX’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Tundra’s optional fuel tank has 3.9 gallons more fuel capacity than the Silverado 1500 Regular Cab Long Bed’s standard fuel tank (32.2 vs. 28.3 gallons).

The Tundra Hybrid has a standard locking fuel door with a power remote release convenient to the driver. The fuel filler door is not lockable on the Silverado 1500. A locking fuel door helps prevent fuel theft and vandalism, such as sugar in the tank.

The front and rear suspension of the Tundra uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the Silverado 1500, which uses leaf springs in the rear. Coil springs compress more progressively and offer more suspension travel for a smoother ride with less bottoming out.

The Tundra Platinum/1794/Capstone has a standard automatic load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Tundra 6.5-foot bed Extended Cab Pickup’s wheelbase is 19.2 inches longer than on the Silverado 1500 Standard Bed Regular Cab (145.7 inches vs. 126.5 inches). The Tundra 8.1-foot bed Extended Cab Pickup’s wheelbase is 7.6 inches longer than on the Silverado 1500 Standard Box Crew Cab Trail Boss (164.6 inches vs. 157 inches).

The Tundra 5.5-foot bed TRD Pro Crew Cab Pickup handles at .73 G’s, while the Silverado 1500 Short Box ZR2 Crew Cab pulls only .70 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Tundra 5.5-foot bed Limited Crew Cab Pickup 4x4 executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Silverado 1500 Short Box ZR2 Crew Cab (28.5 seconds @ .59 average G’s vs. 29.3 seconds @ .57 average G’s).

The front grille of the Tundra SR5/Limited/Platinum/1794/TRD Pro/Capstone uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Tundra’s front and rear power windows all open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Silverado 1500’s standard power windows’ passenger windows don’t close automatically. The Silverado 1500 ZR2/LTZ/High Country’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

If the windows are left open on the Tundra the driver can close them all at the outside door handle. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows at the outside door handle or from a distance using the keyless remote. (This window function must be activated by your Toyota service department.) The driver of the Silverado 1500 can only close the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Tundra’s standard Smart Key System allows you to unlock the doors from either front door handle, unlock the tailgate, and start the engine, all without removing the key from the pocket or purse. Push Button Start standard on the Silverado 1500 only offers hands-free access for the ignition, none to unlock the truck. Push Button Start is not available on the Silverado 1500 LT/RST/ZR2/LTZ/High Country.

The Tundra’s LED headlights produce a whiter, brighter light (up to 3x) using five times less power than the Silverado 1500 Work Truck/Custom’s standard halogen headlights. LED lights also light instantly and last over twenty times longer than halogen.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducts detailed tests on headlights for their range both straight ahead and in curves and to be certain they don’t exceed acceptable amounts of glare to oncoming drivers. The Tundra’s headlights were rated “Good” to “Acceptable” by the IIHS, while the Silverado 1500’s headlights are rated “Poor.”

Manual rear side window sunshades are available in the Tundra to help block heat and glare for the rear passengers. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer rear side window sunshades.

The Tundra has standard power remote mirrors. The Silverado 1500 only comes with remote mirrors at extra cost. Without them the driver will have to roll down the windows and reach across the car to adjust the mirrors.

The Tundra’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Chevrolet charges extra for heated mirrors on the Silverado 1500.

The Tundra Limited/Platinum/1794/TRD Pro/Capstone has standard front air conditioned seats and the Tundra Platinum/1794/Capstone also has them in the rear. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in summer. The Silverado 1500 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.
