The Chevy Silverado was rated above the Tundra. The trucks were close, what gave the Silverado the edge was it was a much better value due to it being less expensive. The Tundra won straight line speed easily, Chevy handled and drove better, they even said fit / finish went to chevy. Braking was a tie. The Chevy was an 5.3 access cab ltz, the Tundra was a 5.7 dc ltd. The Tundra certainly wins when you look at the specs and do the paper battle, but the Chevy seems to be racking up a lot of wins. When the Chevy gets the 6 speed tranny next year the performance of the 2 trucks should be very close. I will definately have to check out the Chevy before i buy anything.
