Chevrolet have put over 100 years of truck building know-how into the Silverado 1500 to deliver a truck that owns the road. A truck that redefines towing and all-round capability. A truck that boasts advanced tech, safety and comfort on a big scale. All this paired with the powerful 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 makes for a truck that builds upon the legacy of some of the most capable full-size pickups on the road.
With its bold proportions and broad-shouldered appeal, Silverado owns the road. Chrome takes centre stage, from the grille and bumpers to the mirror caps, door handles and beltline accents. The appeal continues with 20-inch Polished Alloy wheels. Outside, heated power-adjustable, power-folding mirrors bring everything into focus. The muscular stance, chiselled hood and striking horizontal elements let you know these trucks share the iconic Chevrolet truck bloodline.
There’s a new kind of power in town. Silverado takes capability to a new level by combining the performance of an advanced 6.2L V8 with surprising efficiency and refinement. It also features enhanced torque delivery, start/stop technology and an advanced Autotrac system in the form of a 2-speed automatic, active transfer case. This system provides five modes: Auto 4WD, 4HI, 4LO, 2HI and Neutral, in addition to an automatic mode that seamlessly delivers power based on the road conditions and driving style.
Silverado's advanced 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 delivers the power you'd expect, and then some, doing so with the highly efficient 10-speed auto transmission and smart Dynamic Fuel Management. From highway cruising to off-road adventure, you can count on Silverado being up for it. And yes, the V8 rumble is included.
