TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado offer strong engines and comfortable interiors to complement impressive toughness and towing/hauling ratings, while the Hybrid model is the most fuel-efficient big pickup on the market. All-new engines across the 2011 Ford F-150 model line finally give these full-size trucks strong (yet efficient) performance to match their macho looks. The 2011 Ram 1500 vies with the latest Ford F-150 as the most desirable full-size pickup truck you can buy.
