You don’t build a legacy as a dependable, long-lasting full-size pickup by chance. You do it with strength, capability and advanced technology that stand the test of time. And the test of kilometres. In fact, Silverado 1500 was named the “Highest Ranked Large Light Duty Pickup in Initial Quality” by J.D. Power in 2016.6
Howie Long tests the Silverado pickup bed against its Ford counterpart and finds out it’s really no competition at all. The aluminum bed of the Ford F-150 is more susceptible to puncture than the roll-formed, high-strength steel bed of the Silverado.
GO AHEAD. JUDGE THIS BOOK BY ITS COVER.
A muscular front-end design with bold horizontal elements and a sculpted hood creates a wide, aggressive stance. Each model is unmistakable, projecting the strength and capability that can only belong to Silverado.
POWERFUL PERSONALITIES RUN IN THE FAMILY
Every Chevrolet Silverado has a striking appearance. And while the family resemblance isn’t hard to spot, each carries distinct traits that help them stand out from one another and every other truck on the road.
QUIET AND COMFORTABLE CABIN
Triple-seal inlaid doors, an aerodynamic windshield and a tuned exhaust system reduce noise in the cabin, while dual-density foam seats offer long-lasting comfort.
CONTROLS WHERE YOU NEED THEM
Steering wheel controls let you answer phone calls, control the available Chevrolet MyLink®7 display, change Driver Information Centre settings, available cruise control and other features.
POWER ON THE GO
USB ports8 and an available 110V AC power outlet give plenty of options for keeping your compatible devices charged up and ready to go, no matter where the day takes you.
SMALL BLOCKS. BIG PERFORMANCE
Our legendary lineup of EcoTec3 engines uses three proven fuel-saving technologies — Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection and Continuously Variable Valve Timing — for impressive fuel efficiency with robust power output. For the perfect balance between power and acceleration, an 8-speed transmission is standard on High Country and Crew Cab LTZ Z71 models and available on LTZ models with either the 6.2L V8 engine9 or Max Trailering Package.10
