2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. Its Competition

The Silverado faces stiff competition from Ford and a new Ram 1500.

The Ram offers luxury-car levels of interior quality and a strong V-8, but it doesn’t have the bed utility of the Chevy.

The Ford F-150 has a controversial aluminum bed, a trim level for every taste, and a cool off-roader in the Raptor.

Japan gets in on the traditionally American act with the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra.

The Nissan is much newer and drives better, while the Tundra offers Toyota reliability but hasn’t moved the needle in years and is falling behind in fuel economy.

Chevy also faces competition from its sister vehicle, the GMC Sierra, which is also new this year and promises more luxury.
