Director of Testing Dan Edmunds, Staff Writer Travis Langness and Special Correspondent Elana Scherr put America's top-selling vehicles through the ringer. We test the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 at the track, break down the differences between the interiors and even load an ATV into each truck's bed. We drove them in the city, drove them on the highway, towed a big Airstream trailer, and spent hundreds of miles behind the wheel of all three trucks to see which one comes out on top. Will the top-rated Ram 1500, the best-selling Ford F-150, or will the all-new Chevy Silverado be the new champ?

Q: What's under the hood?
A: The Ram 1500 we used for this test has a 5.7-liter V8 (395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque). The F-150 we tested had Ford's 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 (375 hp, 470 lb-ft). The Chevy Silverado in our test came with the 5.3-liter V8 (355 hp, 383 lb-ft).

Q: Which truck is the quickest to 60 mph?
A: Of the three trucks we tested, the Ford F-150 was the quickest. It did the 0-60 mph sprint in just 6.2 seconds. The Ram 1500 was second with a time of 6.5 seconds, while the Silverado came in at 7.0 seconds. Notably, the Silverado was equipped with the 5.3-liter V8 rather than the range-topping 6.2-liter engine. In previous tests, a last-gen Silverado with the 6.2-liter was capable of hitting 60 mph in 6.4 seconds.

Q: Which one is the best truck? The Silverado, the Ram or the F-150?
A: In our test, we found that the Ram edged out the F-150 and the Silverado in almost every category. The interior quality, powertrain and comfort were all excellent. The Silverado and the F-150 still have a lot going for them, but if it were our money, we'd pick the Ram.

      All of these are horribly unreliable. The only one fairly reliable is the F150 with the 5.0 Coyote, the 3.5 Ecoboost is horrible… and even then, the 10 speed transmissions can have major problems. Not always, but can. The Silverado 5.3 Vortec is actually fairly good, but that cylinder deactivation is terrible. Make sure to disable it if you get one. The Ram is the worst. The 5.7 Hemi has major cam problems, which is unforgivable for an OHV Pushrod. It’s also definitely the worst transmission by far.

      This dude just said the Fiat/Dodge tows better with coil on... holy fuck I stopped watching at that. (Grocery getter Fiat/dodge with coil springs in the rear) Real truck any F Series and finally GM is well garbage but I’d have to say Government motors and Fiat/Ram is well try it for yourself but to cry to daddy for truck repair money.

      When talking about new trucks, you should never use the phrase "Not too expensive". Trucks are over the top expensive these days. Even used ones.

      A lot of whiny FORD and Chevy bitches on here. It's very simple, go to three different dealers and drive all three. Then if you still want to throw your money away on a FORD or Chev, more power to you. I'll be driving my 2019 RAM Laramie Longhorn and laughing my ass off. I've had it since last September, put 10k on it and couldn't be happier.

      So, you’ll tell us when we eat, sleep and wake up to. What makes you think I am going to put any stock on anything you tell us. Give me a brake, you you’ll tell us what to buy too. 2 of the trucks you are showing are American the other is Italian owned by Fiat of Italy in other words when you buy RAM the money goes to Italy, I love my GMC Duramax Denali. Thanks but I think we can make our own minds of what is best for us. Bye!
