Fuel Economy

Most pickup drivers log a lot of miles, meaning that fuel is a major ongoing expense. The Sierra 1500 gets surprising fuel-efficiency ratings for a full-sized pickup – 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. The Toyota Tundra, like most pickups, requires a lot more gas and gets just 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. Instead of cruising through Orange Park at your leisure, plan to spend a lot more time at the pump when driving the Tundra.
