Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Expert Rating

2.8 (Fair)

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.


Chevrolet once billed itself as "the Heartbeat of America." Though Chevy's marketing department may have moved on to new slogans and catchphrases, the old handle still holds true for the brand's iconic Silverado. Generations of Americans have found comfort and familiarity behind the wheel of the tried-and-true Chevy pickup, whether it was grandpa's old Advance Design, dad's Square Body, or just a high school buddy's beater C/K rig. It's the kind of machine this country was built on, even if more and more pickups nowadays are family-haulers rather than farm implements. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is fully redesigned with new motors, freshened exterior styling, and an updated interior.
