Our recently published review of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 moved right into our top five most read this week, coming in behind the still-popular 2019 Toyota RAV4 and one of the Silverado’s key competitors, the 2019 Ram 1500. The review takes a deep dive into everything that Chevrolet updated for the new Silverado 1500, praising its powertrain choices and the host of interior changes, but noting the interior did not hold up to competitors’ offerings.

“During our recent half-ton Challenge, the new High Country did not measure up well against the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited’s superior interior details and 12-inch touchscreen,” reviewer Mark Williams wrote. “If a luxurious interior is what you want, top Ram or Ford trims provide the most impressive features and designs in the class. Still, there’s plenty to like about the new Chevy interiors: larger gauges and information screens, the massive center storage bin, dual glove boxes, closer and simplified climate and radio controls, a cavernous and reconfigurable under-armrest storage bin, a lockable 24-liter storage tray (with tie-downs) underneath the rear bench (for crew and double cabs) and the class-exclusive hidden rear backrest storage bins, deep enough to hold emergency gear, tools, coloring books and more.”
