When our loyal customers at Toyota of Decatur visit our dealership and tell us that they’re looking for a new truck with everything—superb power, next-level performance specs, and a full suite of technology—we simply smile and say that we have the perfect truck for them – the Toyota Tundra.
The Toyota Tundra is an excellent choice on its own, but, by comparing it to the competition, one will quickly see why the Tundra has earned its spot at the top of the truck segment. Take, for instance, our 2019 Toyota Tundra vs 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 comparison chart above.
Main Differences – Toyota Tundra vs Ram 1500
As you can see, there are several attractive advantages to choosing the Tundra over the Sierra 1500. For starters, the base engine of the Toyota Tundra produces up to 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. The base model of the GMC Sierra 1500, meanwhile, trails behind with power ratings of only 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque.
This divide in brute strength, of course, spells out a similar story for each truck’s maximum towing capacity. When properly equipped, the 2019 Toyota Tundra can tow up to 10,200 pounds. The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500, on the other hand, has a maximum towing capacity of 9,700 pounds. Simply put, the ability to tow an extra 500 pounds can save you a lot of time and many headaches.
Just in case that wasn’t enough, the 2019 Tundra also provides Toyota truck drivers with standard Bluetooth® capability and Adaptive Cruise Control on every single model. As outlined in our chart above, neither of these features come standard in the 2019 Sierra 1500. As a matter of fact, Adaptive Cruise Control isn’t available on any models of the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500.
Suffice it to say, those who want a truck that has everything—including power, capability, and high-tech features—are sure to be satisfied by the ever-versatile 2019 Toyota Tundra.
