The Chevrolet Silverado
Completing a continuous 20-year presence on the market, the Chevrolet Silverado
has grown over the years to reach the top of its market segment. A reliable and potent pickup truck that offers the comforts of an SUV, it’s no wonder why it registers the best sales among Chevrolet’s pickup truck line-up.
in its Regular Cab mode or up to 6 in the Crew and Double Cab versions, the Silverado is an extremely comfortable ride even if it's packed with big-boned, tall men. The inside has only high-quality materials and a long list of features that offer the truck everything you'd expect to get from a comfort-oriented crossover SUV. Things like smartphone integration through both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay or a 7-inch touchscreen for Infotainment, Bluetooth connectivity or USB port will be fitted to all base models. From here on you can get luxury upgrades like a 7-speaker, state-of-the-art Bose sound system a sunroof or an 8-inch HD touchscreen fitted on your truck to make a comfortable ride that much better. In terms of safety features, you'll get the Teen Driver system, and a rearview camera as standard as a huge number of high-tech upgrades will be available. You can fit your truck with a head-up display, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, lane change alert, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, low-speed forward automatic braking, front pedestrian braking, a surround-view parking camera, and front and rear parking sensors.
But features are less important for a truck than power and this is where the Silverado really shines. Four engine choices are available, to begin with, and another turbodiesel will be added part way through 2019. The base model comes with a V6 engine capable of putting out 285 horsepower that's coupled with a six-speed automatic. Great for fuel economy it’s not a monster when it comes to towing power so you might want to upgrade to either the 4.3-liter V6 that’s going to give out 310 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque or one of the two V8s. The pair is made up of a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter capable of putting out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque respectively. The smaller version will be paired with an 8-speed automatic while the 420 horsepower V8 will get a 10-speed automatic. That kind of muscle will get you up to 12.200 pounds of towing power to which you can add a 3000 pounds load.
