2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. Its Competition

2021 Chevrolet Silverado
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Silverado is a solid, capable pickup truck with more powertrain options than the aging Toyota Tundra and the streamlined Nissan Titan.

Despite the LTZ and High Country trims, it pales to the more refined finish of its GM sibling, the GMC Sierra.

The Ford F-150 is the bestselling vehicle decades over for a reason, and for 2021 comes with hybrid powertrains in advance of a forthcoming all-electric version.

The Ram 1500 might be the best of the bunch, with a ride quality like a crossover SUV and even more towing capacity than the Silverado.
