With eight available trims, you’re sure to find one that gives you the power and configuration that suits your needs. While strength, durability, and dependability are the standard of every Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you’ll discover unique traits in each trim level that set it apart. Choose the High Country for a paragon of luxury and elegance on the road. But if you need a truck that’s more attuned to muddy tracks and rock crawling, opt for the LTZ Z71. Or, if you need a workhorse that’s not afraid to roll up its sleeves every day without much fuss or frivolity, you want the LT. There’s a truck for everyone, so you never have to settle for anything less than customized capability that’s tailored to you.

The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 starts with a standard 4.3-liter V6 engine that gets best-in-class torque at 305 lb-ft and a respectable 285 horsepower along with towing capability of up to 7,600 pounds. Or upgrade to the hefty 5.8-liter V8 engine that delivers 355 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 11,100 pounds. This is also the engine that earns best-in-class V8 fuel economy measuring in at 18 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the highway. But if you need massive power and best-in-class towing capability, then you need the 6.3-liter V8 engine. This beast delivers 420 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque that aids the 12,500 pound towing capability. There’s power at every level.
