The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.6
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Silverado offers ample power, cargo volume, and towing capacity, but it lags rivals in safety ratings and interior refinement. The 2021 Ford F-150 ushers the bestselling truck into the electrified age. The 2021 GMC Sierra has deep beds and big tow ratings, but low crash-test scores.
