Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Overview

With its 2014 redesign the Silverado (and similar GMC Sierra) has emerged as our top-scoring pickup. Handling is now more responsive and the spacious cabin is as quiet as a luxury car's. Benefits include easy cabin access, simple controls, and generous towing and payload capacities. Fuel economy with the popular 5.3-liter V8 crew cab we tested was a best-in-class 16 mpg overall. Other engines are a capable 4.3L V6 and powerful 6.2L V8. Each is all-new and mated to a six-speed automatic. It shines as a work truck. Its few shortcomings as a day-to-day vehicle include a jittery ride and front seats that aren't as supportive as those in some competitors.
