Chevy Silverado named Consumer Reports' 'Top Truck'

Posted: Updated:

Consumer Reports has named the Chevy Silverado 1500 its "Top-Rated Truck."

The Silverado trumped Dodge's Ram 1500, which came in second-place.

The magazine said GM's Chevy Silverado has a more ample cargo bed, several hundred pounds of greater payload capacity and can also tow a heavier trailer.

However, the race was close.

The director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports said you can't go wrong with either truck.
