Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Overview
The Silverado and similar GMC Sierra are among our top-scoring pickups. Their strengths include responsive handling and a cabin as quiet as a luxury car's and more spacious. 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 an exceptional 16-mpg overall, but the truck feels sluggish. Other engines include a 4.3-liter V6 and powerful 6.2-liter V8, which gets an eight-speed automatic for 2015. The truck's few shortcomings include a jittery ride and front seats that aren't as supportive as those in some competitors. First-year reliability of the redesign has been much below average.
