The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
5.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The suave 2018 Chevrolet Silverado does nearly all things well, even if it’s not a huge standout in one way or another. The 2018 Toyota Tundra offers a strong V-8 engine and good advanced safety tech, but it comes up short in terms of fuel efficiency and interior quality.
