The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado lineup appeals to truck traditionalists, offering a straightforward package that isn't as bold or fashionable as rivals but delivers in every way a truck should. Muscular but lower in fat thanks to turbo V-6 power, the 2013 Ford F-150 shares the truck lead thanks to extreme towing capability and best-in-class tech features.
