TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado takes a traditional truck path but counters that with a comfortable, refined interior and a mother lode of technology. Rugged, handsome simplicity sums up the attraction of the 2016 GMC Sierra, which charms in many ways and doesn't overcomplicate in any.
