Lightbulb Tundra or Chevy PU and why??

What would be your choice?

Needs to have: (used models only)

*4x4 automatic w/front bucket seats..no bench
*Less than 75K miles
*MUST be able to tow 16' tandem axel trailer with UTV
*Cloth or Leather...(leather mandatory heated/cooled front seats)
*Power seats, windows
*Crew Cab ONLY & 8 cylinder only!!

I have had both in the past and thinking about trading my King Ranch F150 in. This needs to be my final truck trade so I want reliability, reasonable and performance on the HWY.

Thoughts...and no, won't buy new...looking at year models from 2014 up.

I like the tundra. Wish they would have a diesel option though.

For reliability I'd have to say tundra. Grew up on GM products. Bought my first tundra in 03 and haven't looked back. Now on my third one and the only repairs I've had to do to any of them (other than when i smacked a big ole mule deer on the highway) was brakes.

Just not confident my truck will be reliable in future days. I know, every brand has it's issues, but the Eco Boost is not my favorite right now. I have not ruled Ford out yet?, but won't go the eco boost engine again.

My only gripe, as mentioned, is the Tundra got less mpg than any truck I have ever owned. Just trying to get a different perspective of opinions...thanks..Kuma

I’m a GM guy, especially seein and drivin my dads old truck. It was an ‘03 w/ the small V8 but it would still scream. My dad never changed the oil after I stopped doin it for him when I moved off it went through hell and back when I drove it and same with my brother after my dad passed. Only thing that I replaced on it was a front hub assembly and a transmission, it needed another when my brother sold it, he sold it with 285,*** on the odometer and the guy that bought it drives it from Manvel to Freeport everyday (30-45 minutes)

That was different generation of GM though... if I were to be in the market for a newer one I’d look at 2015 or newer and of course the less miles the better but I’d also look real hard at the 6.2l and get an AFM delete so it doesn’t drop to 4 cylinders.

Tundra. I had a 2010 Chevy that was ever bit as reliable as this 2015 Tundra, but I like the Tundra better. And it will pull a 16' loaded with a ranger, hunting gear and 4 grown ups just fine. Plenty power.

Used truck market is insane but my choice is Tundra hands down. Leather will be hard to find in a SR5 but can be added for around $900 with Katzkin. Heated or AC seats will most likely be a Platinum. 2016up has the 38gal tank which makes a huge difference averaging 14mpg.

If creature comforts are a bigger issue, Chevy may be your better option. Both trucks have plenty of power pulling and will be 300k mile motors if serviced correctly. One of my petty complaints about Toyota or Nissan for that matter is not charging a phone when turned off. I'll over look the little things though for fewer stops at the service department. Not a big fan of the Ecoboost either after driving one and have a old school V8 mentality with displacement. Plus, less to go wrong later down the road.

Guess I may be stupid then ( I know what you mean on the Tundra's)...lol!! It's all about the trade difference and what one likes. I'll never buy new anymore...the hit you take on ANY brand driving brand new off the lot is not good but dealers make great $$ on used as I have been told...but, life as it is. My current King Ranch has EVERY option you could want...leveling kit, 20" tires, cargo bed cover and on and on and on including a "color matched" cattle guard on front...the sun roof is nice as well. I've always loved the King Ranch interior and mine also has a 35 gallon tank. The POWER of the Eco engine will absolutely kick some behinds even when towing a 16' loaded down trailer. It's the dang eco engine longevity I'm concerned about?

Appreciate the opinions so keep 'em coming.......

I bought mine new. I looked at used trucks but wouldn’t buy one with more than 35k on it and they all wanted new prices for a 2 year old truck so I bought a new one. Got roughly 9k off sticker. They hold their value well, but the used truck market is ridiculous IMO.

I have both. I have a 03 Tacoma with 280,*** miles. I have a 17 Silverado with 25K or so. When I have to get another truck I'm going to go with a tundra. In just my experience Toyota have been super reliable even with almost 300K miles. I'm a Chevy man and have had good luck with them, but I think I'm going tundra next round.

That is the reason I went with the 5.0 in 2014 on a Super Crew 4x4 in 2014. Eco had been out for 3 years and so had the 6.0 Diesel when I bought a 2006 F350 C/C PSD and spent $12,000 keeping it running. Mine has been a workhorse with no problems except for mice!

Tundra gets my vote. I had a '15 and now driving a '17. Dealer wanted trades too bad after Harvey and I was able to get into the new one for less than I paid for the '15 because of the way Tundras hold their value. Not able to say that about Ford or Chevy, and I was raised a Ford boy (still have the '99 7.3 F250 I bought in 2000).
I will say the larger gas tank they added in '16 is a very nice addition.

Tundra, I’ve been through 2 chevys (5.3) my 2 buddies still on their original tundras with no problems. They out pulled me out ran me only thing that was close was gas mileage. I would give a 6.0 a shot if I found one.

Default Tundra or Chevy PU and why??

I’d buy a 2015 Chevy with the 6.2L & 8 speed auto and get the 6.5’ bed. It’s what a Tundra wants to be when it grows up.

If this is going to be your last truck resale shouldn’t be a concern. IF the Tundra holds value better than the Chevy then you should be able to save money buying the Chevy too.

Btw I would go for the Tundra. I owned a Chevy Z71 years ago and it fell apart at 80k. I have owned 4 Toyotas and each has been very reliable and all but my current one had over 200k miles.

Things would have been different with the 6.2 & 6 or 8 speed combo! You would have done everything faster with better fuel mileage to boot.

6.0 is not a VVT or AFM engine. We have 2 that are, a 2015 6.2 truck and a 2017 5.3 Tahoe. We have not had an issue with either AFM or VVT on either. I have never had an issue with the other parts mentioned on these, or previous GM products.

Everyone is aware that some early VVT/AFM 5.3's would eat a cam. I really have not heard of it happening in a newer LS based engine. If you buy used and are worried just go ahead and delete it.

I will follow that up, you can buy a 5.3 reman longblock for the price of tundra heads. Also, if you are mechanicly inclined a gm engine can be changed in your driveway with a buddy and a few beers. Plan a few more days, more money and a cussing friend for the same on a Toyota.

Tundra has horrible mileage. If you're considering Tundra, don't compare it to a half ton domestic, compare it to a 3/4 ton gasser. Not because the Tundra is more like a 3/4 ton, but because its' FUEL EFFICIENCY is like a 3/4 ton. I'd rather have a 3/4 ton gas guzzlin' Chevy than a 1/2 ton gas guzzlin' Tundra...

Had a tundra, and went to a 3/4 ton Chevy. My main complaints were parts price and bed size on the tundra. I think Chevy has more comfortable seats, but I miss the crew max cab space.

2017 Tundra SR5 4x4 automatic with big V8 and I get 16-17 hwy and 12-14 pulling 21' Bassboat. Worst mileage ive gotten is 10-12 in 4 wheel drive climbing hills at deer lease. Pulls like a champ! Mileage is better than my 2013 Tundra and bigger gas tank. That saying I have Pro fishing friends driving the Chevy 2500 Duramax and swear by it!!

Well let's see.

99 Chevy 3/4 ton 290,000 miles
03 Chevy 3/4 ton 308,000 when I sunk it in the ocean
08 Chevy 1/2 ton 314,000 mile and still going
08 Wifes 1/2 ton 140,000 miles still like brand new
15 GMC 1/2 ton 98,000 trouble free miles

I guess a Tundra would be better than a POS Ford.

No experience with Tundra’s. 3 - 1500 Chevy’s and 2 - 2500 Duramax Diesel.

Drove them all to 240-280K and no major problems. Normal maintenance...replaced electric window parts in one.

I just bought a 2018 Chevy Z71. Traded off a 2006 Z71 with 307,000 miles. I'm ok with Chevy's reliability.

Looked at the Tundra and they wanted $7-8 K more than same equipped Chevy.

Started out looking used and anything less than 35 - 50 k miles was within $5000 or less of what I payed new. Plus it was difficult to find used that were equipped close to what I wanted.

I drive a 2007 tundra, 2014 1500 z71, 2016 2500hd. Some for work but the tundra is a weekend truck that never gets clean. It has 230k hard miles. I trust the tundra the most. Only down side is cargo lbs. The tundra has a better drive train and is a beast off road.

Buy a tundra..
