Consumer Reports has named the Chevy Silverado 1500 its “Top-Rated Truck.”

The Silverado trumped Dodge’s Ram 1500, which came in second place.

The magazine reported GM’s Silverado has a more ample cargo bed, several hundred pounds of greater payload capacity and can also tow a heavier trailer.

However, the race was close.
