The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The suave 2018 Chevrolet Silverado does nearly all things well, even if it’s not a huge standout in one way or another. The 2018 Ford F-150 sports new looks and a wider availability for a 10-speed automatic transmission. A turbodiesel is in the works for this model year, albeit later in 2018.
