As the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 continues to trickle into dealerships, the comparisons tests cometh. Edmunds rounded up the three major players in the truck segment to see which of them delivers what truck buyers will appreciate most.
And unfortunately for the new Silverado, it didn’t fare too well. Judges put the pickup in last place compared to the Ford F-150 and redesigned Ram 1500. The panel noted the 2019 Silverado simply didn’t feel like a brand new truck compared to the refreshed F-150 and new Ram 1500.
Interior and road noise was also more prevalent in the Silverado and the driving style didn’t match the extra performance found in the Ford, or the more refined aesthetics in the Ram. Overall, the ride was thought of as unrefined with the 5.3-liter L87 V8 engine and eight-speed automatic.
The Silverado did earn marks for its larger bed compared to the two rival pickups, though.
And finally, the interior. As we’ve crowed since we first saw spy shots of the 2019 Silverado, it doesn’t stack up compared to the F-150 and Ram 1500. Judges found the interior rather blase and not as functional as the Ram.
