easy-to-use HVAC and entertainment controls and a great screen that is especially helpful when in use as the backup camera

one area in which the Silverado is showing its age is in the race for crazy storage options

no door pockets, no under-floor bins—and the front door pockets were the smallest in this trio, as well as the flimsiest

Because the Silverado comes in such a vast number of build combinations, trims, and equipment levels—with seemingly unlimited option possibilities as well—it's very difficult to assess the list of features in the 2013 model as superior or inferior.

And with multiple body styles, bed lengths, and drivetrains, we recommend that you start with what's good for you, build the kind of truck you need online, then look for examples at nearby dealerships that are close to the desired build.

Head out to buy a Silverado without a very narrow, specific idea of features in mind, and it's a wild world. You might find a few bare-bones work trucks for less than $25,000 in the corner, while out in the lot there may also be $50,000 Silverado Hybrid trucks with real-time traffic and DVD entertainment systems.

At the base level, the Silverado is a spartan workhorse, with few creature comforts: The windows wind up by hand; the locks lock that way too; the bench seats are covered in vinyl; and the AM/FM radio goes away if you want to save a hundred bucks. That's one extreme. The other extreme--with lots of steps between SL and SLT between—piles on luxury hardware like satellite radio with NavTraffic; navigation; OnStar; leather seating; a power sunroof; a power sliding rear window; Bluetooth; a USB port for media players; and of course, dozens of cargo-securing features, down to the bedliner itself.

The Silverado's OnStar system now includes automatic crash response, crisis assist, and stolen vehicle slowdown, with a one-year subscription to the Safe and Sound plan.

Hybrid models include a lot, and have more limited option potential. The base Hybrid could save you a lot of fuel, but it's rather meagerly equipped for the price, including cloth seats; steering-wheel audio controls; a USB port; Bluetooth; and remote keyless entry. Leather and a navigation system are available.

 

Conclusion

From luxury family pickup to bare-bones work appliance, the 2013 Chevy Silverado covers all the bases.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
