The Silverado had been a good choice for years and the redesigned 2014 model was an even better performer than previous models. Handling is more carlike and the cabin is as quiet as a luxury car's. An assist system makes the tailgate easy to lift and prevents it from dropping open, easing cargo-handling duties. At 16 mpg overall with the 5.3-liter V8, our four-wheel-drive Crew Cab model got impressive fuel economy.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"I am 5'2" and the seats are too deep and can not be adjusted to a comfort level for my long distance driving. I have to add pillows and seat pads to get some level of satisfaction. The ride would feel more secure if the headlights were at least as good as our 2011 suburban. These are horrible in both their side and front illumination and downright dangerous when night driving on roads where game animals cross or are alongside the road. The noise is minimal."
