Selected Edmunds.com visitor vehicle reviews:

I drove and considered the Ford
platinum ,the Ram Laramie along with the Silverado LTZ . All were really nice trucks. I chose the Silverado because it clearly drove and rode like a modern sedan,the Ram had a slightly better ride but drove like a truck and used a lot of gas,the Ford looked and drove like an older design..With 700 miles I can report the gas mileage is excellent. Today I drove 70 miles to a boat dealer to pick up a 15' jon boat and trailer. With 2 adults driving 70 or better I averaged 24.8mpg.Return trip with boat and trailer(estimated weight 600 lbs) I averaged 19.8 mpg. Not bad for a 5000 lb truck with 4wd. Fit and finish is excellent interior and exterior.

The drivetrain in the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is carefully engineered and built to last, and they're willing to back it with a warranty that's 40,000 miles longer than the drivetrain warranty on the 2014 Ford F-150.
