Overview Information

The Silverado is Chevrolet's full-sized truck, which aside from styling and package differences is nearly identical to the GMC Sierra. The Silverado 1500 series encompasses a broad range of cab styles, bed lengths, powertrains, and towing capabilities. Trim levels range from the bare bones Work Truck models with vinyl seats and floors to the well-appointed LTZ. The midrange LT and LTZ models offer most of features truck buyers are looking for. The LT equips cloth seats and the LTZ has leather bucket seats. Powertrain choices are broad ranging from the V6 engine in the base model to a brawny 6.2l V8 for increased towing or bragging rights. Pricing is competitive with other trucks, but bigger engines and options add up quickly. Any truck shopper looking to tow should pay careful attention to the option list to make sure their truck is properly equipped for the job.
