I've owned them all, chevy, ford,
dodge, and Toyota. By far my best
pickup for light-medium duty use. I
don't haul passengers, so try
elsewhere if you want lots of rear
seat room, but otherwise this truck
tops the others in virtually every
category. And it's more reliable.
Beware of pro-domestic truck fans who
come on message boards slamming
Tundras. I also own a 2002 silverado,
so I think I'm pretty objective. The
tundra is easier to drive and feels
more in control. The Silverado has
already had 2 major issues, too.
Surprising power, steering and road
feel not numb like most pickups,
decent styling, reliability, braking
power, light touch on
brakes/throttle/wheel make it less
tiring to drive.
Better door detents to hold them open,
better paint quality, it chips
easily. Seatbelts that retract
better, a little more front seat
travel, better stock shocks(upgrade to
bilstein TRD, you won't regret it),
regular cab short bed version
