The new Tundra comes ready for battle with 381 available HP. Can the new Silverado compare with the top Vortec Max and 367 horse? We want to hear your opinion!

When the Tundra has a checkbox for an optional diesel, I might look at them with a different eye.

Maybe GM should look into some "retaliation" adverts for their trucks as they've got something Toyopet doesn't have:
   * 365 horsepower @ 3000 rpm
   * 660 lb.-ft. of torque @ 1600 rpm

Nuff said!

Good point. Toyota is a non-player in the 3/4 and 1-ton diesel segment, for now at least.

hello
i"m a long fan of toyota tundra and i think that this truck is way better on any way them any other truck on his class and when we get to the diesel bussiness we will rock ford and chevy because toyota can last for a long period of time and the parts of the vehicles are also no compatetion for the american trucks.

The Toyota can never compete with the Siverado even if it has more horsepower.  The Tundra just isn't the truck the GM is.  Besides that the gas pedal might stick.  JMO

Keep in mind that Toyota's traction control system is no where close to the Silverado's. I'm pretty sure a 2 wheel drive Silverado would run circle around a 4x4 Tundra any day of the week if it relied on it's traction control and power train. And it doesn't hurt the Silverado looks like a truck and not an oversized, bloated Prius.... Grin lol. You pick.... Confused

Well, a few things since this thread was originally started. Chevy has since come out with the 6.2 Vortec with 403 horse and a six-speed trans on the half-tons. The 6.0 on the 1500s is gone for 2011, and the 2011 HD diesels have 397 horse and 765 lb./ft. of torque. Doesn't look like GM is resting on its laurels!  Smile

Plus GM is producing a 1500HD with Denali trim package.
