Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Chevrolet Silverado 1500

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 7, 2019
  • 2019 Silverado widely available; 2020s arriving
  • Up to 20% off MSRP on 2019s
  • Lease a 2019 Crew Cab from $289 for 36 months
  • New 0% APR for 72 months + $2,250 bonus on 2019s

Favorable supplies and pricing:

A volume seller across the country, the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 remains widely available, and pricing is generally favorable.

As usual, the mid-range LT tends to carry the largest discounts. Note that the exclusive High Country variant is extremely hard to find, but is now included in most cash offers.

The previous-generation Silverado continues for 2019 under the name Silverado 1500 LD (covered in a separate entry).

The 2020 Silverado 1500 is flowing into dealers now, but doesn't carry any cash incentives yet. The lineup includes a new turbodiesel model that's rated at 33 miles per gallon highway.

Unless otherwise noted, factory offers are available nationally and will expire December 2, 2019 unless otherwise noted. Black Friday promotions are already factored into these offers.

Get 20% off:

Chevrolet is offering up to 20% off 2019 Double Cab models in stock. That translates into terrific savings — up to $9,755 in fact.

The discount on Crew Cabs is nearly as good at 19%. Needless to say, it's a great time to shopping for a 2019 Silverado.

Leasing still looks great:

One again, you can lease a 2019 Custom Crew (with V6 and Value Package) from $289 for 36 months (10,000 miles a year) with $3,829 due at signing. The effective monthly cost of this lease is $395, an exceptional value for a truck of this price.

What's more, current GM lessees are eligible for a loyalty bonus that reduces the effective monthly cost to $340 — even better.

The initial offer on the 2020 LT 4x4 Crew All Star is $459 for 39 months with $3,529 at signing. That's a good value, especially for this early state of the model year.

0% for 72:

Instead of the cash offers on a 2019 Silverado, you can get 0% financing for up to 72 months. The deal comes with up to $2,250 bonus cash, depending on the configuration.

There are no finance promotions yet on the incoming 2020 Silverado.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was entirely redesigned in 2019, so it sees only tweaks for 2020. The biggest change is a new 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which was originally slated for 2019. It’s available on several of the mid-range and upper trims. Last year’s 6.2-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission both see expanded availability, with the former now optional on both Trail Boss trims.

Adaptive cruise control makes its debut as an option on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Chevy’s smart trailer tech is now more widely available, and a few aesthetic options and packages have been shuffled around.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Silverado 1500 comes in a staggering eight trims: WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country. Pricing ranges from $29,895 including destination for the WT to $57,390 for the High Country with the Crew Cab, Standard Bed, and turbodiesel.

Engine Choices

The Chevy Silverado 1500 comes with a choice of five different engines and three transmissions. The 6.2-liter V8 is has the best towing capacity, but the new turbodiesel is the undisputed efficiency champion.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.7L Turbo 4-Cylinder310 hp348 lb-ft21 mpg
4.3L V6285 hp305 lb-ft17 mpg
5.3L V8355 hp383 lb-ft20 mpg
3.0L 6-Cylinder Turbodiesel277 hp460 lb-ft27 mpg
6.2L V8420 hp460 hp17 mpg

Both the 6.2-liter V8 and the turbodiesel get a 10-speed automatic transmission. The base 4.3-liter V6 exclusively uses a six-speed automatic, while the turbocharged four-cylinder gets an eight-speed automatic. The 5.3-liter V8 is available with all three gearboxes, depending on the trim level. Efficiency varies accordingly.

All-wheel drive is a $3,300 option regardless of trim, but it’s mandatory if you want the 6.2-liter V8.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Silverado 1500 can seat up to six passengers with a front bench and a Crew Cab or Double Cab, or seating can be trimmed to just three with the Regular Cab. The box comes in three lengths: 70, 79, and 98 inches. The Long Bed is only available with the Regular Cab, and the Short Bed is only available with the Crew Cab.

Safety Features

The Chevy Silverado 1500 has a mixed record in the safety department. Active safety features only become standard at the range-topping High Country trim level, but they're available in add-on packages at much lower levels. Things like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking are available.

The truck carries a four-star overall safety rating (out of five) from the NHTSA. It also aced the IIHS crash testing outside of the passenger-side small overlap front test.

Connectivity

Even the WT gets a 7-inch infotainment screen with Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. An 8-inch color touchscreen takes over at the LTZ trim, while the High Country also gets navigation and wireless charging.

WT - From $29,895

The Work Truck, or WT, trim is mainly aimed at contractors, so it keeps things simple. It comes with vinyl flooring, vinyl or cloth upholstery, and 17-inch steel wheels. This trim is available with all cab and bed styles, plus a choice of three engines: the turbo-four, the V6, and the smaller V8.

Adding a little luxury means opting for the WT Convenience Package ($1,610), which includes niceties like cruise control and keyless entry. Trailering essentials are bundled into the Trailering Package ($395). In what seems like a no-brainer, these two packages can be selected together for $1,505.

Custom - From $36,195

The substantial price jump to the Custom trim buys cruise control, power locks and windows, remote keyless entry, cloth seat trim, 20-inch wheels, LED lights, and better options. Though it uses the same engines as the WT, the Custom is only available with a Double or Crew Cab.

Remote start is the big ticket item for the Custom Convenience Package ($800), which can once more be bundled with the Trailering Package.

LT - From $38,495

The LT trim starts with the 2.7-liter turbo engine, but it’s the first trim to open up the turbodiesel option (an extra $6,705). The 5.3-liter V8 falls in between. The LT gets 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, and a chrome center bar in the grille.

Buyers can add creature comforts like dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and a heated leather steering wheel with the Convenience Package ($2,025), which is much more comprehensive than on lower trims.

The LT trim can break into five-digit towing capacities, but only with the Max Trailering Package, which costs $1,125 but requires the 5.3-liter V8 and the Trailering Package.

RST - From $40,395

The RST starts to push into luxury territory with LED lights all the way around, remote start, keyless entry, push-button start, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The front gets a body-color center bar for a sleek look. Engine selection is the same as the LT trim. Although it’s not available at launch, this trim will see the 6.2-liter V8 later on.

At this trim, the Convenience Package costs $1,060, but it can be bundled with front bucket seats (instead of the front bench) for $1,655.

Custom Trail Boss - From $41,095

The Custom Trail Boss is based on the Custom trim, but it only comes with all-wheel drive and the 4.3-liter V6 or the 5.3-liter V8. This trim will also soon see the 6.2-liter V8, and for a relatively modest price increase.

To earn its name, the Custom Trail Boss also gets a 2-inch suspension lift, 18-inch wheels with off-road tires, a two-speed transfer case, Rancho shocks, a locking rear differential, and skid plates.

LTZ - From $44,595

Front leather upholstery comes included at this trim, as do power-folding heated side mirrors, chrome accents, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and all of Chevy’s advanced trailering features. The LTZ can come with the turbodiesel or either V8 engine.

An 8-inch driver information display is available with a head-up display, all bundled in the Technology Package ($2,125) with upgraded rear- and bed-view cameras. Getting that package requires the selection of both Convenience Packages ($1,350 and $1,070, respectively), which include ventilated bucket seats at this trim.

This trim is the cheapest way to get adaptive cruise control, but it’s still not particularly cheap – it requires two safety packages totaling $2,035.

LT Trail Boss - From $50,095

Like the Custom Trail Boss, the LT Trail Boss is based on its namesake trim. It's only available with the Crew Cab and 5.3-liter V8 engine. It gets all the same off-road upgrades as the Custom Trail Boss, but also a leather steering wheel, four-way manual front seats, remote start, keyless entry, and all-weather floor liners.

Package options are similar to the LT trim, but generally a couple hundred dollars more expensive. Bucket seats can be swapped in up front for $595 (when bundled with the Convenience Package).

High Country - From $54,895

The range-topping High Country trim builds on the LTZ and comes with everything Chevy can think of. This means an exclusive bronze and chrome grille finish, plus a power up-down tailgate that Chevy claims is an industry first. The High Country trim is only available as a Crew Cab with either a V8 or the turbodiesel

Also standard are front bucket seats with 10-way power adjustment, ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, heated rear outboard seats, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, 20-inch wheels, and HID headlights.

CarsDirect Tip

Although the possibilities for customization are nearly endless, our pick for the best value in the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lineup is the LT trim. It carries an approachable price while allowing selection of most trailering and luxury features.
