2014 Silverado vs. 2014 Tundra in Dallas


The 2014 Chevy Silverado and the 2014 Toyota Tundra are both top contenders in the full-size pickup class, and choosing between the two can be tough. Fortunately, Keith Orr Toyota, your DFW Toyota dealership, is at your side to help you compare the two trucks. Here are some things to know about their performance and safety: 

Performance – 2014 Silverado vs. 2014 Tundra

2014 Toyota Tundra

The Silverado's performance strength is its powerful engine. Specifically, the Silverado's most powerful V8 engine can produce up to 420 horsepower, while the Tundra's most powerful V8 engine only produces 381 horsepower. This doesn't slow the Tundra down, though. In fact, it can accelerate from 0 mph to 30 mph in just 2.6 seconds. In contrast, the Silverado takes a whole 2.8 seconds to accelerate to 30 mph.

Additionally, unlike the Silverado, the Tundra comes with a true four-wheel-drive system that allows for better traction control of all four wheels. The Tundra also offers larger wheels and a longer wheelbase than its Chevy competitor, and these features enhance the way the truck handles on the road. 

Ergonomics – 2014 Silverado vs. 2014 Tundra

2014 Chevy Silverado

Both the 2014 Chevy Silverado and the 2014 Toyota Tundra are equipped with modern ergonomic features to provide added convenience and comfort to drivers and other occupants. The Silverado offers a few ergonomic perks in comparison to the Tundra, including available rearview mirrors that tilt when the truck is in reverse and headlights that automatically dim and brighten depending on outdoor light conditions.

Despite the aforementioned perks, the new Silverado can't hold a candle to the new Tundra when it comes to ergonomics. The Tundra offers brighter headlights, more room for passengers, and a larger cargo box than the Silverado. Additionally, the Tundra is equipped with standard Bluetooth connectivity, standard power remote mirrors, and rear A/C and heating vents. Lacking these features, the Silverado simply doesn't measure up ergonomically.

Dallas Toyota News: Toyota FT-1 Concept


Toyota FT-1

Keith Orr Toyota, your DFW Toyota dealer, is excited to announce a new concept car that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show last month: the Toyota FT-1. The FT-1 is a stunning coupe concept that signals Toyota's potential interest in getting back into the business of selling sports cars.

The FT-1 was a sight to behold at the Detroit Auto Show with a brilliantly curved body, wide fenders, and a visually striking wraparound windshield. It is slightly reminiscent of earlier Toyota sports car models like the Supra and Celica but definitely has its own 2014 flair and modern finishing touches. In terms of performance features, the FT-1 is equipped with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive, and a rear-mounted transaxle. 

According to the rumor mill, the FT-1 concept may materialize on the road as a re-vamped version of the Supra. The Supra was a sports car produced by Toyota from 1978 to 2002. As Toyota positioned itself as a leader in the compact car and mid-size sedan market in the 2000s in North America, the automaker phased out sports cars like the Supra and Celica.

If Toyota does, in fact, release the FT-1 as the Supra at some point during the next few years, it'll be exciting to see how the public responds. Toyota has definitely built a name for itself as a maker of high quality, practical vehicles like the Camry and Corolla. Although previous versions of the Supra and Celica were relatively popular, they weren't necessarily as successful as their more practical siblings.

We think the FT-1 will definitely attract a following, though. There's a lot to like about this new sports car concept, and we're always excited about any innovation Toyota brings to the table.

Keith Orr Toyota will keep you posted with the latest Toyota news and news about the FT-1. Visit our blog often for more of the inside scoop from the exciting world of Toyota! Oh, and if you're considering your new car options in the Dallas area, be sure to schedule a test drive in one of our 2014 Toyotas!

DFW Cars: 2014 Toyota Corolla vs. 2014 Honda Civic


Wondering about the pros and cons of both the 2014 Toyota Corolla and 2014 Honda Civic? Keith Orr Toyota, your DFW Toyota dealership, wants to fill you in! Here are some things you should know about the reliability, warranties, and ergonomics of these two new, compact cars:

2014 Toyota Corolla Reliability and Warranty

2014 Toyota Corolla

In general, Toyota vehicles rank very highly in terms of reliability. J.D. Power and Associates ranks Toyotas third in the U.S. market in their reliability survey. This means, on average, that the new Toyota Corolla is less likely to have issues than many of its compact car competitors. If the new Corolla does experience any mechanical or technical issues, getting those issues fixed is relatively simple. For the first two years or 25,000 miles, Corollas come with free roadside assistance and complimentary scheduled maintenance.

2014 Honda Civic Reliability and Warranty

2014 Honda Civic

Although Hondas are generally considered reliable cars, they don’t quite measure up to Toyotas. In fact, J.D. Power and Associates ranks Hondas 7th in the U.S. market in terms of reliability, behind Toyotas. This means the 2014 Honda Civic could have a greater number of mechanical issues than the 2014 Toyota Corolla. It’s also important to note that the 2014 Honda Civic does not come with free roadside assistance or complimentary scheduled maintenance for the first two years or 25,000 miles.

2014 Toyota Corolla Ergonomics

The 2014 Toyota Corolla definitely isn’t lacking in terms of roominess. It comes with 42.3 inches of front legroom, 53 inches of front hip room, and a whopping 54.8 inches of rear shoulder room and more overall leg, hip, and shoulder room than most vehicles in its class. Additionally, the 2014 Corolla offers 13 cubic feet of trunk space and folding rear seats that are split to accommodate different types of cargo as well as passengers easily.

2014 Honda Civic Ergonomics

Although the 2014 Civic does offer some ergonomic perks like a remote vehicle starting system, it’s not quite as comfortable and roomy as the 2014 Toyota Corolla. In fact, it comes with .3 inches less front legroom, 2.5 inches less front hip room, and 1.5 inches less rear shoulder room. Furthermore, its trunk is a little smaller than the Corolla’s: 12.5 cubic feet. Plus, its rear seats aren’t split to accommodate various shapes of cargo.

The benefits mentioned above are just some of what there is to like about the 2014 Toyota Corolla. Visit us at Keith Orr Toyota to learn more about this popular compact car, and don’t forget to try out our trade-in calculator!
