Interior Features of the 2018 Tundra vs Silverado 1500

When it comes to the interior of the Tundra and Silverado, there a few differences to note in terms of space and what comes standard on the vehicle. For tall drivers, the Silverado 1500 is going to offer slightly more head and leg room than the Tundra, but this is only an inch or two more in most areas. Both trucks are equipped with premium amenities, but it’s the standard equipment that really sets the two apart. The Tundra is going to give you the features you want most, like power windows and power locks as standard on even the base trim. While power locks come standard on the Silverado, features like power windows are listed as optional, leaving you in better hands if you go with the base-model Tundra.
