All five new light-duty pickups were put to the test for a full week, with five PickupTrucks.com editors evaluating them based on how they measured up in six key categories: Ergonomics, Tech & Entertainment, Suspension & Ride, Interior/Exterior, Visibility, Value, and Overall Performance.

“This was one of the most punishing and competitive tests we’ve ever done, and nobody was quite sure how the trucks were going to finish,” said PickupTrucks.com editor Mark Williams. “The Silverado with the new powertrain is an impressive example of both brute strength and refined comfort. No matter what kind of heavy loads we threw at the truck, the ride and road feel were smooth and confident.”
