TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD stakes its claim on a workaday pickup that won’t look dated in 10 years. The 2018 Ford Super Duty range combines maximum capability with the latest tech and conveniences—it’s no wonder they’re called “Cowboy Cadillacs” now. The 2018 Ram 2500 balances style, comfort, and capability very well.
