Chevy offers an interior on par with the competition, but its flinty ride and questionable styling hold it back. The powertrains are solid, but it could use a more efficient hybrid option.

Pros: Lovely interior in most trims (how about that!); whisper-quiet diesel; useful MultiPro tailgate; responsive handling Cons: Rougher ride than competitors; no hybrid or electric option (yet) The 2023 Chevrolet Silverado gets only minor updates, but really, who cares? Chevy did so much heavy lifting last year that it deserved to kick back and take some R and R after such a thorough update and improvement of the Silverado. Specifically the interior, which went from an embarrassment to arguably the finest cabin in the segment in terms of overall aesthetic appeal (Ram may still have an advantage in terms of materials quality and functionality). Even a Silverado LT volume seller looks and feels luxurious now, while the genuinely luxurious High Country wows with its open-pore wood trim and distinctive navy blue leather option. Both are pictured in the above gallery. As for the rest of the truck, Chevy’s Duramax diesel engine is now even more impressive thanks to increased output for 2023 and the fact that it’s so darn quiet. We’re not exaggerating when we say you’d be hard pressed to tell it’s a diesel. You’ll definitely tell the base 2.7-liter turbo-four isn’t a big, burly V8, but that’s OK as it has the performance and fuel economy to make up for it. As for the big, burly V8s, they definitely get the job done, but we ultimately prefer Ford and Ram’s big engines. We also prefer driving those trucks in general. While the Silverado impresses with its responsive steering and overall handling, its ride quality is not as comfortable nor as refined as Ford and especially Ram offers. It behaves more like a truck overall – a Ram 1500 can often feel like a family crossover. We’re guessing many Silverado devotees won’t care too much, but should you be using your full-size truck as a daily driver, it’s something to be aware of and we suggest driving the various trucks back-to-back to experience the difference for yourself.

After massive, substantial upgrades last year, the Silverado receives only minor updates for 2023. The Duramax diesel engine receives a bit more horsepower and torque thanks to various upgrades and refinements, while the High Country trim level gets a Jet Black/Umber interior color option. There are also three new paint colors. What are the Silverado interior and in-car technology like? Last year saw the Silverado get a completely new interior design with updated materials starting with the LT trim (those lower retain the ugly old interior design). It’s a massive improvement and the thoroughly modern interior this thoroughly modern truck should’ve had from the very beginning. Although we were very impressed by how nice the LT trim level is (pictured above, top), it’s the upper trim levels that benefited most from last year’s overhaul – because they absolutely needed …
