Chevy Silverado

Jim Ellis Chevrolet announces the Chevy Silverado 1500's "Excellent" road-test score makes it Consumer Reports' top-rated truck, edging out the Dodge Ram. According to Consumer Reports' tests, the Silverado has a much larger cargo bed, several hundred pounds greater payload capacity, and it can tow a heavier trailer; up to 11,200 pounds. Its tailgate is easy to raise and lower, and handy corner bumper steps help with climbing into the bed. The Silverado also has a lower step-in height than the Ram, aiding cabin access. Handling is more agile, and the Silverado delivers best-in-class fuel economy of 16 mpg overall - one mpg better than the Ram. This efficiency could save owners about 50 gallons of gas per year.

Complete test results for the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 appear on and in the November issue of Consumer Reports, which will be on newsstands October 5.
