Consumer Reports has selected the Chevrolet Silverado full-size truck as its Top Pick honoree among all 2010 pickups. Top Picks are the best all-around vehicles in their categories and must meet CR's road test, reliability and safety requirements.
"The Silverado 1500 ($37,235) returns to the top of the list after a year off," the magazine said. "The crew-cab 4WD model is a well-rounded pickup with a roomy cabin, generous payload capacity, decent ride quality, available full-time 4WD, and, on higher-end models, very good interior fit and finish. The GMC Sierra is a twin of the Silverado. Reliability has been average."
The Silverado was one of two domestic vehicles chosen in the 10 categories that make up CR's Top Picks.
In earning the award, the Silverado replaces the Chevrolet Avalanche, last year's pickup truck Top Pick.
