Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevy tows up to 12,000 pounds, and a stem-to-stern redesign amps up ride quality, refinement, fuel economy, and features. The quiet cabin has an infotainment system that can connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices, and clever built-in bumper steps provide a boost to the LEd-lit cargo bed. An efficient V-6 twins 24 mpg with 305 ft-lb of torque. And a pair of strong-yet-efficient V-8s also shut off cylinders to save fuel. [Starting at $24,585; chevrolet.com]
