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.

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Acceleration is excellent with the V-8 engine and handling is on par with a body on frame sport utility. Of course, it is not a sports car!"

Carl C., SC (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Our Silverado has the 5.3 Liter V8 engine which is plenty of power to carry a load. I havn't towed yet but believe that the combination of its intuitive transmission and powerful engine will get the job easily done. The handling is almost car like with adequate feel of the road. It also absorbs the potholes and bumps pretty well."

Michael M., CT (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Acceleration is great with a 5.3L V8. Handling is good for a truck. Parking can be cumbersome in tight spaces, but often I will park in reverse to take advantage of the rear camera, then you are ready to pull forward when leaving."

Benjamin P., FL (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Even though this has the same engine size my 2004 and 2009 Silverados had this truck has much more power. It is very much better for towing."

Fred L., UT (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"With the 6.5 liter V-8, acceleration and power is phenomenal."

Michael H., SC (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"The ride is very good for a 4X4 pickup truck and the seats and interior are high quality making for a vehicle suitable for in town errands or highway use for long trips."

Bruce B., OK (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Both are good. Gas mileage needs a big improvement."

R B., MA (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"I was amazed with the MPG I get with my pick-up. The cyclinder deactivatioin works perfectly and I get 20 MPG. Very satisfied my last pick-up I got 12MPG."

James M., MI (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"I use this truck mainly for towing my 26 foot travel trailer. The Silverado has the 6.2 engine and the 8 speed transmission with the maximum tow package. The truck has plenty of power for towing up hills and good control for holding back going downhill. You just put the truck in the tow haul mode and let it do it's thing."

Thomas T., CA (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"TOO BIG FOR CITY DRIVING AND PARKING"

Mary K., DE (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"The acceleration is very good. Getting on freeways, passing, etc is never a issue."

Delvin V., TX (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Sound handling and road holding especially wit "Auto 4 wheel drive" in poor weather. It is quiet, comfortable with heated leather trimmed seats, and for a light duty truck gets outstanding fuel economy. It has also been very reliable, contrary to your "predicted reliability" rating."

Glenn M., WI (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Good turnng radius Selective cylinder management affect on mpg"

David T., CO (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"It handles like a car and has very good acceleration"

Armando G., FL (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

Robert A., WA (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"I have the 6.2 Liter engine and the Max Tow Package. Very powerful with or without the trailer attached. Only about a 1 MPG penalty Vs the 5.3 Liter that my friends have. Yes, premium fuel is recommended, but seem to run fine on Mid Grade or even regular if you keep you foot out of it."

What Owners Say

"Pickup trucks have turned into luxury vehicles. I use the truck for work, and 50K for a work truck that is going to be beat up just does not make sense to me. You would not put a ladder rack on a corvette, or a load of manure in the back of your Dodge spider? I need a basic truck with heat and air, for around $30,000"

"It’s a truck. It does what I need it to do."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Basic truck build is a competent vehicle, with typical amenities for its class. No problems if GM had left it at that. MyLink DESTROYS my satisfaction level. It is so incredibly convoluted, intrusive and overall F****d up that I cannot stand it anymore, will not renew my lease, will not recommend it to others, and will never purchase another GM product with that system again. Furthermore, I will look at any future prospective GM vehicles with a careful eye to other bad design stupidity."

Michael F., WA (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Got a good price for a sharp looking truck."

Bruce B., NY (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"The truck was a great value - it was an end of year purchase. It's an LT with the All Star options package and the V8 engine. It was approx. 32,000 for the extended cab, but comes with most options you would want. If I had to do it again I would get the crew cab, and leather seats,as well as the new safety features regarding cruise control and breaking."

Randy-Tamara C., CA (2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

"Most dissatisfied with the Bridgestone tires that came with it. Truck had 23,000 miles at 3 years and needed to be replaced. Truck is not a work truck. Complained to GM and was told those are an accessory and I need to take it up with Bridgestone. They needed to see the tires but the dealer already got rid of them. I had a $1,000. Tire warranty that paid for one tire due to a flat. Cost me $900. Previous two trucks got 42.000 miles on the tires. Won’t buy another one and may be done with GM products."
