2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 diesel
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Silverado has fallen to the new Ram 1500 for second place, behind America’s best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-150 and all its many iterations.

The Ram 1500 is almost luxury car refined and SUV-level quiet, but with all of the functionality of a truck.

The Silverado has the best bed on the market, but for shoppers who want a big bed with a refined cabin, why not go GMC Sierra? The Nissan Titan is newer and improved, but still a fringe player; the aging Toyota Tundra offers a comforting level of reliability and sameness.

Quick Specs
5.2
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado is a strong, solid truck with the largest bed in the class, but it’s not as well done as the new Ram 1500.
6.2
The 2020 Ford F-150 is a best-selling vehicle for good reason: it’s comfortable, quiet, and capable. Millions of owners aren’t wrong.
5.6
The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 draws from a broad palette to paint a handsome, conservatively styled truck.
The 2020 Nissan Titan is an evolved pickup with better looks and slightly more power for 2020.
6.2
The 2020 Ram 1500 has its truck priorities straight, even when it’s cloaked in upscale trims.
5.0
The 2019 Toyota Tundra has its virtues, but it’s a dated pickup truck ripe for redesign.
