2015 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ

Pros: Expansive passenger and cargo room; well-designed technology features; broad range of models, body configurations, and powertrains to choose from

Cons: Prices rise quickly as options are added; ride comfort doesn’t quite match Ram 1500—it’s a bit jiggly over rough pavement

CG Says: After its redesign for 2014, Silverado receives a number of updates for 2015. The most significant is an 8-speed automatic transmission for the available 6.2-liter V8. Also new are available trailering mirrors with back-up lighting, available spray-on bedliner, updated Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with Text Messaging Alerts and Siri Eyes Free, and available 4G LTE Internet connectivity with a built-in WiFi hotspot. The Silverado benefits from refined, efficient-for-the-class powertrains; lots of in-cab storage areas; and comfortable, quiet crew-cab interiors. It rides well and we like that it doesn’t feel as lumbering as some of its competitors do on the road. Overall, it’s a really nice truck that does most everything pretty well. While Chrysler’s Ram 1500 still gets the nod as our favorite big pickup, this Chevy is still a Best Buy as well.
