Take on the toughest jobs with the ever-reliable Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The 2017 model has great fuel economy, strong powertrains, second-to-none hauling capability, and enough thoughtful details that make the cabin comfortable and intuitive, even for the harshest critics. Allow the powerful engine to wow you and the interior to embrace you.
The refreshed 2017 full-size pickup has a nice variety of engine options so you can customize your workhorse to suit your needs. The base model starts with a 285-hp 4.3-liter V-6 engine, next up the line is a 355-hp 5.3-liter V-8, and the big poppa of engines is a 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8. All of these engines offer EcoTec 3 and Active Fuel Management labels, which means they shut down cylinders at times for maximum fuel economy. The 4.3-liter and 5.3-liter engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission, while an eight-speed automatic is standard with the 6.2-liter engine and optional with the 5.3-liter mill. Talk about power and precise handling when you need it.
Speaking of customization, you can choose cab configurations that make sense for you. Options start with regular (two-door), double (four-door), or crew (large four-door) and all of these choices can pair with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Regular cabs are available with 6.5-foot or 8.0-foot cargo beds, the double cab is only available with the 6.5-foot box, and the crew cab offers 5.8-foot and 6.5-beds. You can even choose what trim level you want all this in: WT (Work Truck), LS, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country in order of lowest to most premium features.
On all of these options, the Chevy Silverado interior is brawny yet sophisticated. There are plenty of available plugs (USB, 12-volt DC, 110-volt AC) to charge your phone or laptop and any other gadgets you need to stay connected. The cabin is spacious and airy with minimalistic controls to provide a calming effect that allows you to focus on the road when you need to. And best of all, the 8.0-inch touchscreen with Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use, with an optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi signal and available wireless phone charging to make your life even easier.
