Which Silverado 1500 is the Best?

It's hard to go wrong with any 2018 Silverado provided you buy the truck that's right for you. In other words: Don't get a bare-bones WT model if you'll spend most of your time hauling your family around town. Likewise, don't get a High Country if you'll be driving to job sites. For us, the right truck is somewhere in the middle: an LT, or possibly an LTZ, with Chevy's high-tech MyLink system. And we'd go with the Crew Cab model to maximize practicality.

How Much Does a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Cost?

Like all full-size trucks, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is offered with a wide array of body-style configurations, engine choices, drivetrain options and bed sizes. We've simplified it here for shoppers interested in buying a Silverado, but choosing the truck that's right for you will involve more than just picking a trim level.

Base-level Silverado models use the WT designation, for Work Truck. Starting at $28,880, the WT includes only the basics, like power locks, cruise control, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, MyLink infotainment with 7-in touchscreen audio, six speakers, Bluetooth, a rear backup camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Also standard are HID headlights, a locking rear tailgate and 17-in painted steel wheels.

Drivers who upgrade to the LS ($31,405) get power mirrors, power windows, keyless entry, GM's OnStar system with 4G LTE Wi-Fi and chrome front and rear bumpers.

Shoppers who step up to the LT ($35,105) get features like steering-wheel audio controls, alloy wheels, an EZ Lift and Lower tailgate, SiriusXM, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and cloth upholstery. The LT also offers more options than the WT and LS, including features like an alarm, a lane-departure warning system, low-speed autonomous emergency braking and a forward-collision alert system.

The luxury-oriented LTZ ($45,060) is the next trim in the Silverado's lineup. Only offered in Double Cab or Crew Cab body styles, the LTZ includes 18-in alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a remote starter, a power-sliding rear window, a memory system for the mirrors and seats, a rearview camera and an 8-in color touchscreen for the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system.

Topping the Silverado lineup is the upscale High Country ($52,595), which is only offered in Crew Cab guise. It features stitched leather seats, chrome trim on many exterior surfaces, a Bose audio system and cooled front seats. It also uses the truck's 6.2-liter V8, which is exclusive to the High Country model.

If you're interested in options, the Silverado has quite a few. Additional extras include a power sunroof, a navigation system, cooled seating, wireless device charging, power-adjustable pedals, a heated steering wheel and safety features like forward-collision alert, low-speed emergency braking, automatic high beams and a lane-departure warning system.

Safety

Is the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 a Safe Car?

All Silverado pickups include daytime running lights, dual front airbags, front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags and a tire pressure monitor. Safety options include forward-collision alert, low-speed autonomous emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane-departure warning and GM's OnStar system, which can provide crash notification and stolen-vehicle tracking assistance.

The Silverado is the first pickup to receive a 5-star overall crash-test rating from the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Crew Cab variants received the top rating, earning 5-star scores in front-impact tests and the side-impact assessment, along with four stars for the rollover rating. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the 2018 Silverado Crew Cab Good marks in all but its small-overlap front crash test, on which the Chevy earned a Marginal score.

Competition

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs the competition

2018 Ford F-150 -- The Ford F-150 is strong competitor, offering V6, turbocharged V6 and V8 power, excellent capabilities, great gas mileage and a long list of trim levels ranging from basic to high luxury.

2018 RAM 1500 -- The RAM 1500 boasts muscular styling, HEMI V8 power and an available air suspension. We also like its optional diesel engine, which is now offered on light-duty models.

2018 Toyota Tundra -- The Tundra doesn't have the same wide-ranging lineup as the Silverado -- but it's getting close. Shoppers who pick the Tundra will find a refined, muscular pickup with many great standard features and options, but a much lower tow rating.

Used GMC Sierra Denali -- If you want more features and bolder styling than you can get with the Silverado, you may want to consider its upscale 2012-2015 GMC Sierra Denali twin. Prices are higher, though, so you might have to check out a used model.
