Driven this week: 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel

Audience questions:

  • Why are really tall, modified pickup trucks allowed on the roads?
  • Does Consumer Reports test its vehicles with completely full fuel tanks?
  • Is there a test Consumer Reports performs to simulate driving with older, partially worn-out tires?
  • Can you help me understand why CR’s real-world fuel-economy testing can result in markedly different mpg numbers than the Environmental Protection Agency’s ratings?
Panelists: Jake Fisher, Mike Monticello, and Ryan Pszczolkowski
