This the same test from another thread, Motor Trend just gave the win to the Silverado to be nice.

For us, the Chevy Silverado was the best overall choice, balancing power, performance, value, and quality. Was it perfect? Absolutely not. We have to admit it came down to the Chevy and Ford (Dodge will be a strong player this year as well), and maybe the home field gave the Silverado the slight advantage, but with a strong powertrain story and a top-notch interior layout (not to mention a pretty good price advantage), our pick by a nose (and a very small nose at that) is the Chevy Silverado LTZ.
We partnered up with our friends at to help out and watch this classic half-ton confrontation. But does that mean its final judgment will be the same as ours? Not necessarily. We picked out a few specific tests a third-party company performed and pulled out a few of our own. There were other tests performed and more data collected than we have the space to publish here. To see the rest in thorough detail and for more information and data, go to and find out exactly how each test was structured and laid out, and who their winner turns out to be.
Diss the Ford why don't you!

I wish I knew who she is.

I got that picture from video from one Serbian song. Basically, you can see eagle with two heads (on the chain) which is a Serbian symbol.
And number 3 (three fingers) is also Serbian symbol. It started as a Serbian symbol during the wars, but now it just represents Serbia in general.

All I know if it was Car and Driver they would some how give it to a BMW 3 series.
But sadly that's the truth.
