Default 6.2L Chevy OR 5.7 Tundra

Which one:

6.2L Chevy LTZ OR 5.7L Toy Tundra (TRD).

I am looking for good on-demand power/torque for hauling and decent mileage (14/18 or better).

Thoughts? Thanks!

I would get the 6.2 myself...I have a company 3/4 2011 6.0 with 296,000 going strong.

Nothing against the toyo but if it doesn't have a huge gas tank for these big engines...no thanks.

I would take the 6.2.
I like the tundra, but I think every manufacture has passed it in the power department.

My sister has the 6.2 in her Yukon and has had problem after problem with it. It is a 2011 though, maybe they have fixed it since then.

I have a 2011 5.3 LTZ and the only thing I wish I had changed about it was getting the 6.2.
Have a cousin with a tundra and he said it drinks the gas. The 6.2 probably would too, but I'm known to put the pedal down

I've got a 17 LTZ 6.2 4x4 with 6K miles. Avg 17 mpg in town and highway. That's putting pen to paper not the dash. 265/75-18 DuraTracs from day one. One thing is for sure, you step on it and it will peel wheels. This 8 speed has 3.23 gears but I think with 420 at the flywheel you'd still do good pulling. I've yet to pull a trailer with it so I don't know how that would affect mpg.

Wife's truck has the 6.2 with 3.73s. 18 mpg is rare as hens teeth. Presumably cause it runs 80 so well...

I when I got mine I thought they said the 8-Speed only came with 3.23 gears. Could be wrong. Maybe the max trailer package has different rear end.

Not sure about older models.
My 15 Z71 with 5.3 had 3.42 rear end.

Chev, GMC RPO codes for rear axle type ratios for 1/2 to 1 ton
G44 Axle Rear 3.07
G72 Axle Rear 2.14
G75 Axle Rear 3.62
G76 Positraction Rear
G80 Not Open Diff – Positraction / Limited Slip / Typ. Gov-Lock
G81 Positraction Rear Axle
G82 Axle Rear 4.56
G84 Axle Rear 4.10
G86 Axle Rear, Limited Slip
G87 Ring Gear, 8.5″
G89 Ring Gear, 7.5″
G90 Rear 3.15
G91 Special Highway Rear Axle 3.08
G94 Axle Rear 3.31
G96 Axle Rear 3.55
G97 Axle Rear 2.73
GM RPO Codes, or General Motors “Regular Production Option” codes contain lots of valuable information about your GM vehicle. Identify your GMC or Chevrolet rear end gear ratio by the RPO Codes, usually located on the placard labeled “Service Parts Identification” inside the drivers door panel or glove box. (Accurate identification using the GM RPO code assumes that the rear end has not been previously modified) The prefix is usually F, G or H when referring to Axle Identification.

I would get the Chevy, but I would get a 2500. That way you can get a crew cab and a full 6.5 foot bed. Plus everything is built a little tougher. My dad has had gasser 3/4 ton Chevys for as long as I can remember, and they have all been reliable long lasting trucks.

Chevy or 3.5 ecoboost ford if you're staying 1/2 ton. Not a fan of Toyota. Now if we were talking mid sized trucks or compact cars, then Toyota... Not a fan of their full sized trucks.

This is not a complete list for the newer 8 speed trucks. The most common combination will be GU5 (3.23) with G80 (Limited slip) for the 4x4. If you have a 'J' (6.2) sitting in the eighth digit of the VIN that combo will put a smile on your face when you need to go in a hurry! Also, the 6.2 RPO code is L86.

Those of you saying 6.2, does it change your mind if the truck I am looking at has the 6speed tranny vs the 8?

Basically asking if that would be a deal breaker or would the engine still make the deal?

The problem with Toyota's monstrous size OHC 5.7 knockoff of a GM Northstar is that it has reached the peak of it's power potential without adding boost or cubic inches. Same with the Ford 5.4 dohc. Adding boost or size makes one hard to fit into the vehicle without major body design.
GM and Dodge have stuck with the pushrod engines and still have more power to be gained from a naturally aspirated engine and room left under the hood.
Ford's fix was the Eco Boost to stay up with power requirements of the competition not that Tundra was ever any real competition. I have no idea what Toyota will do to keep up power wise except to phase out 5.7 DOHC motor and go to a straight pushrod motor like they run in NASCAR. If they elect to boost the 5.7 dohc they gonna need a lot more under the hood room and a big ol hump on top of the hood to hold all that stuff. If you think they are UGLY now just wait.

If towing near capacity of the 1/2 ton, I would opt for the 3/4 ton. I can only compare my F-250 with 6.2 gas vs. the Tundra 5.7 , towing the same 28' offshore boat. Power wise the F-250 out pulled the Toyota and handled the load much better with sway and stopping included. The Tundra was a better ride with out a doubt.

My prior truck was a 2010 Chevy half-ton with the 6.2 engine. I sold it at 150K miles and I never had a lick of trouble with the drivetrain. The interior, on the other hand, was a different matter altogether.

I had a 2010 6.0 3/4 chevy 6 speed auto and currently have a 2015 toyota tundra 4 door and the toyota does just as well in every department except maybe comfort and does better in fuel mileage. I would go toyota, but thats just my opinion. That full size cab gives so much room its crazy. And lets be honest, you dont buy a truck for fuel mileage. So getting 15 mpg is plenty imo. But that comes after getting around 12mpg on the highway and around 10mpg while pulling out of the chevy.

Glad this was brought up. My f-250 has the full 8' bed and its like trying to drive a football field around at times. Going into a parking garage is a challenge at the airports or Drs. office. Many of the Malls and such are not painted for a large vehicle as the CC with 8' bed. Things to be aware of if going 8' on the bed
