The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.2
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. Among increasingly bold full-size trucks, the 2013 GMC Sierra is simple in looks and strong in performance—with the Sierra Hybrid remaining a fuel-efficient standout.
