Nice truck but The interior is lack luster for the price. Seats are not that comfortable too.

Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD Custom Double Cab 4WD worse.
"It looks more conservative to a pickup truck than the new Chevy curvy style. I actually liked the Chevy LD (older design) best for looks but the lack of responsiveness and acceleration was a deal breaker for me. "
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD Custom Double Cab 4WD worse.
"This is very close between all three to me. The F150 seats feel like they support your back a little more but the difference is small. "
