The Chevrolet Silverado is one of the top-selling trucks on the market, and the redesign for 2014 positions it as having even stronger appeal for those who want more refinement and features in a personal truck—without alienating those who use their trucks for work.
Up until this model year the Ram 1500 was the best-riding o fthe mid-size trucks, while the Ford F-150 offered the most compelling lineup of modern and efficient engines, to please every type of shopper.
The F-150 and Ram also up until this year have been more macho in styling, but that’s due to change with this taller, more imposing Silverado.
The Nissan Titan is aimed almost entirely at the personal-truck crowd—the types who are going to tow a boat on the weekend or haul hobby materials—but it looks woefully out of date inside and gets poor gas mileage.
Otherwise, the Toyota Tundra has strong powertrains, but its interior comes on a little strong (and a little too gimmicky).
The GMC Sierra remains very closely related to the Silverado, and it gets many of the same changes this Chevy earns for 2013.
