2021 Chevy Silverado vs. the Competition

Competition is fierce in the light-duty pickup segment, but the Silverado can still “tow and haul as much as or more than most rivals,” say reviewers at US News & World Report. It even bests top contenders like the Ford- F-150 and RAM 1500 for towing capability, a key spec for many Murrieta pickup buyers. But according to the Chevrolet Silverado reviews, there’s even more to this truck than its impressive 9,700-pound towing maximum:

  • Edmunds.com: “For the second year in a row, Chevrolet’s full-size light-duty pickup truck gets a round of updates designed to add value and make it more appealing in comparison to primary rivals from Ford and Ram. Highlights include a new configurable tailgate (the Multi-Flex) that opens a variety of ways plus upgraded infotainment and trailer-towing technology. There’s also an adaptive suspension option for the top trim level that should smooth out the ride quality.”

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Reviews: Capability

You expect phenomenal towing power from a truck like the Silverado, but you may be surprised by its speed and efficiency of its 420-hp 6.2L V8 engine on the highway to Temecula! When it comes to performance, Chevrolet Silverado reviews from Motor Trend and others tend to agree:

  • Motor Trend: “Most of the Silverado’s available five engines feel well-tuned and capable. That’s true even of the 2.7-liter turbo-four, which tows and accelerates adeptly given its relatively small size. Perhaps making the 2.7 more appealing for 2021, Chevy has upped its towing capacity by a couple thousand pounds in every configuration. Both V8 engines are expectedly powerful, but the 5.3-liter mill is saddled with slow low-speed throttle responses and a recalcitrant eight-speed transmission. Handling is responsive although unladen ride quality can be jittery. Its brakes require a firm press, but the truck stops well.”

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Reviews: Technology

Experts at US News find the Silverado to be just as sophisticated inside the cabin as it is powerful under the hood, thanks to a “spacious interior with easy-to-use tech features.” Chevrolet Silverado reviews from MotorTrend and Car and Driver offer similar praise:

  • Motortrend: “For 2021, the cameras in the 360 degree-view system are enhanced to enable a better view of the bed, and the rear or sides of a trailer. Entry-level Silverado models have just two speakers, but most are fitted with a six-speaker system or optional seven-speaker Bose premium setup.”
  • Car and Driver: “The Silverado can also be equipped with an array of trailer-assist technologies and several handy features, such as a multi-function tailgate and a camera display in the rearview mirror that gives an unobstructed view of what’s behind you.”
