If your paycheck depends on a payload, and a full sized truck is the only option to get the job done, then the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the right truck for you. Over the past 30 years, these trucks are so durable they are the longest-lasting full-sized pickups on the road today, based on registrations. That’s no surprise, because they are made by people who know and drive trucks for people who need performance and dependability.
For performance, there are three powertrains to choose from, the 4.3L V6, the 5.3L V8 and the 6.2L V8 offering a horsepower range form 285 to 420. 6.2L V8 has an impressive best-in-class towing capacity of 12,500 pounds! Capacity to tow is one thing, confidence to tow is another and built in towing safety features give you the confidence you need to tackle every big job. An auto-locking rear differential balances rotation to keep you firmly planted in all conditions. The Tow/Haul Mode adjusts transmission shifts to reduce shift cycles on steep grades, Stabilitrak with Trailer Sway control detects a swaying trailer, then applies brakes on both truck and trailer to bring it back in line. And the Hill Start Assist momentarily holds the brakes, giving you extra time to switch to the accelerator without rolling backward. The back up camera ensures the road behind you is clear when backing up and the forward park assist makes it easy to parallel into tight spaces.
There are three trim lines available in both 2WD and 4WD. Regular, Double and Crew cabs as well as standard, long and short boxes, all made from high strength steel, are available. Convenient built in steps and hand grabs make it easy to get to everything in the bed and well placed tie downs keep it secure while on your way to the jobsite. The damped tailgate makes access smooth and easy.
