The Silverado and similar GMC Sierra have relatively responsive handling and a roomy cabin that is as quiet as a luxury car's. Cabin access is easy, controls simple, and towing and payload capacities generous. Fuel economy from the 5.3-liter V8 crew cab we tested was 16 mpg overall, but the truck feels sluggish. Other available engines are a 4.3-liter V6 and powerful 6.2-liter V8. Some shortcomings include a jittery ride and front seats that aren't as supportive as those in certain competitors. More versions now get the eight-speed automatic, which should improve engine response. Other changes include available automatic emergency braking and the addition of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Reliability has remained below average.
