Silverado Selected as a Top Pick by Consumer Reports
Consumer Reports has selected the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab as its top truck choice among all pickups for 2008.
CR says, "the redesigned Silverado is considerably improved. It achieves a nice balance between work attributes and livability, including a generous payload rating, a comfortable ride, improved interior quality and steering feel, and easy access."
The Silverado was the only domestic vehicle chosen in the ten categories that make up CR's Top Picks, and the first since 2005.
In earning the award, the Silverado was selected over the all new Toyota Tundra, which won Consumer Reports' half-ton comparison test last year. Consumer Reports says the Tundra's first year reliability has been subpar, particularly the 5.7-liter V8 four-wheel-drive version.
