One of the country’s top publications for truck lovers—Truck Trend magazine—recently came out with its annual “Best in Class” honors, and four GM products were big winners—literally.
In the Work Truck segment, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD pickups tied each other at the top of the heap. “Capability is the highest priority” among these trucks, according to Truck Trend, and as the publication points out, these big boys have the most of it. Maryland Used Cars Dealers said this includes offering the highest towing capacity (17,800 pounds in rear-wheel-drive regular cab models) as well as the highest payload capacity (4,192 pounds). There’s plenty of value on board here, too, with the magazine noting the Silverado 2500HD is the least-expensive turbodiesel work truck now on the market.
According to Used Trucks Dealer Seattle, There also was a similar finish in the Full-size SUV category, where the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon hauled off the highest honors. This segment included the current “real” sport utilities: The robust body-on-frame workhorses that can carry maximum levels of both people and cargo. Here, Truck Trend editors acknowledged automakers’ recent efforts to make full-size SUVs more livable, with higher fuel efficiency ratings, more comfort and yet more capabilities. The bottom line was that the “Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon are the best representations” of vehicles in this class, boasting “hybrid models and active fuel management, nine-passenger seating, and an 8200-pound towing capacity.”
