The Silverado’s softer styling—especially inside—stands apart from its chief competitors, nearly all of which have more imposing, macho styling.
The Silverado’s V-8 engines are more powerful yet also more economical than equivalent engines in the F-150, but the engine lineup is more powerful than for the light-duty F-150, and it's more fuel-efficient.
The new Tundra includes more safety features than the others, along with more storage compartments and interior utility, while the Ram is sorely outdated, especially inside (it’s set to be replaced by an all-new 2009 truck).
