When put to the test, you can count on the 2015 Chevy Silverado to get the job done. The full-size hauler was crowned champion of the 2015 PickupTrucks.com Light-Duty Challenge.

In the Challenge, the Silverado went head to head with four of its toughest competitors for a week of intense tests evaluating Overall Performance, Ergonomics, Tech & Entertainment, Suspension & Ride, Interior/Exterior, Visibility, and Value.

By the end of the week, PickupTrucks.com editors were sufficiently impressed with the Silverado 1500 Z71 LTZ equipped with the 6.2-liter engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. When the testing concluded, it had earned a whopping 1,554 points.

β€œThis was one of the most punishing competitive tests we’ve ever done, and nobody was quite sure how the trucks were going to finish,” said PickupTrucks.com editor, Mark Williams.

β€œThe Silverado with the new powertrain is an impressive example of both brute strength and refined comfort,” Williams added. β€œNo matter what kind of heavy loads we threw at the truck, the ride and road feel were smooth and confident.”
