The Toyota Tundra includes more safety features than other trucks, along with more storage compartments and interior utility, though the materials inside aren't top-notch.
The V-8 engines powering the Silverado models are stronger and more economical than equivalent engines in the F-150—an undeniably strong selling point versus the Ford.
The softer styling of the Chevrolet Silverado sets it apart from the perceived machismo of competing models.
The Silverado's toughest competition comes from Dodge, where the all-new-for-2009 Ram gets a vastly improved ride, better handling, and some innovative cargo options; the Ram's engine lineup is strong as well.
The Ram's interior isn't quite up to the level of the Silverado's, but it's worth a look.
