Yep you are right and it seems that the NHT is offered as you indicate on that sticker.
I will graciously acquiece and state that you are and have been correct in the trailering issue. Nicely done.

no side A/B Sierra,
Huh, It certainly does have side-curtain airbags. Just cuz they call them head-side curtain airbags doesn't mean a thing. They are the same thing!!! They protect from the armrest up, and the GM's are smarter.

Nope the difference is that they have side curtain airbags but not a separate set of side torso airbags.
They've been to airbag school longer?

Sure, when you tailor the comparison to include items that are standard on Tundra and optional on GM, you can get the numbers close, but that's it...close!!! (within $1000). Try comparing with no options other than those necessary to get them equally equipped. Or randomly? Bottom line, GM's are cheaper by a MINIMUM of $1000 and the difference goes up from there.
And this is based on MSRP's Tundras sell at MSRP, GM's sell at invoice...now crunch the numbers!!! I'll wait...

Their airbags are combined...same area of protection.
Smarter = They detect type of crash (side impact vs rollover) and they can stay inflated for up to 6 seconds in a rollover to prevent secondary (post-impact) injury or ejection.

Oh and BTW, you can get the 6.0 without ordering the Max trailering pkg for only $1000 instead of $2k+.... I know, I did it.
So, for comparisons, opt for the 6.0 without max trailering pkg. This will make the GM's even less and will still provide everything except 4.10 gears. (You will have to add HD towing pkg for about $350 though).
