TOP 5 REASONS TO GET A CHEVY SILVERADO 1500
If you are a fan of the outdoors and frequently haul a lot of cargo, you need a pickup truck in your life. Not just any pickup, but one that’s reliable, powerful, fuel-efficient, and—just as important—looks good.
Chevy Silverado trucks have been satisfying these requirements for years. But those are not the only reasons why the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 should be your next truck. Some other reasons are:
Attractive and Dependable Build
Even though the Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the most competitively-priced trucks on the market (around $28,300), it doesn’t compromise on looks or dependability.
The body of the lightweight truck is built big and tough to stand the test of time and easily negotiate rough terrains. You can also get it in bold yet attractive colors, such as black, Cajun red, Oakwood metallic, and more.
Warranties are important when buying a new pickup truck. This is why the Chevy Silverado 1500 comes with a warranty to protect your investment. Whether you choose the comfortable and luxurious High Country edition or the adventure-ready Z71 off-road model, you’ll get a basic 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty.
If you prefer, you can extend your warranty to a 5-year or 60,000-mile option.
There are lots of good-looking pickup trucks out there, but few of them offer the level of comfort the Chevy Silverado does. It’s why the truck has been a top-three seller for years.
Some of the truck’s industry-leading features include steering wheel controls and a wireless charging pad for iPhones and Androids. Some models also offer a 7 or 8-inch touchscreen display with several USB ports.
If you want add-ons, you can customize your truck with floor liners, console tray organizers, box locker side rails, bed cargo nets, a sliding bed tray, and more.
For safety, the truck has a rearview camera, six airbags, and a high-strength safety cage made with durable steel. There’s also StabiliTrak and Hill Start Assist. StabiliTrak identifies when your trailer starts swaying and automatically applies the brakes for stabilization. Hill Start Assist holds the brakes for you when it notices the truck sliding backward on a hill.
Most people buy pickup trucks because they want something big and powerful enough to carry lots of cargo and conquer tough terrain. The Chevy Silverado 1500 comes in three powerful engine options that meet these needs.
There’s the 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8, and 6.2-liter V8. Compared to its bigger brothers, the 4.3-liter V6 is a bit tame with 285 horsepower, which it complements with around 18 mpg fuel economy during city drives.
The 5.3-liter V8 is a bit wilder with a 355-horsepower engine that can tow up to 11,100 pounds and stay fuel-efficient at 18 mpg during city drives. The real beast is the 6.2-liter engine with 420 horsepower for towing up to 12,500 pounds, yet it stays fuel-efficient and delivers 15 mpg during city drives.
Regardless of which variation you go for, you’ll get a truck that perfectly balances efficiency and capability.
So, which Chevy Silverado is on your wish list?
