The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.0
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 Ram 1500 full-size pickup is heading in the right direction with just a couple of small detours.
