The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Series has been a great success among the masses. The lineup is now heading to its third year since a major redesign, and still going strong with its popularity and sales. With a more refined front-end, smoother automatic transmission and increased security features, these pick-up trucks have come a long way since its redesign in 2014.
Chevrolet Silverado makes an excellent case for itself to be among one of the top pickup trucks in the country. It comes with an elegant body, improved technologies and a tougher and more durable chassis. Although there is little noticeable difference to the exterior look of the pickup, the interior features matter more. Here Silverado 1500 exceeds all expectations.
The pickup truck comes in three different cargo bed lengths – 5 feet 8 inches, 6 feet 6 inches, and 8 feet long. The interior of the vehicle is logically laid-out, with all controls within easy reach of the driver. Knobs and controls are large. The glove compartment is spacious. Drivers comfort is kept in mind, and the vehicle comes with large rear doors to facilitate easy entry and exit. Among other minor styling updates, the 2016 Silverado offers a HD radio and a wireless charging device also.
The pickup truck comes in three different engine capacities, which are 4.3-liter V6 engine, a 5.3-liter V8 engine, and a 6.2-liter V8 engine. The engines use a 6-speed automatic transmission mechanism.
When it comes to safety features, the Silverado 1500 series has given its drivers no cause to complain. The vehicle is equipped with separate air bags for both the driver and passenger side. It also comes with daytime running lights and a tire pressure monitor.
The electrically powered steering in Silverado 1500 delivers just the right amount of road feel, while still making it easy enough to maneuver in a parking lot. The parking sensors and Hill Descent Control features all make it quite a unique and pleasing experience for the drivers.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 costs range from $28,100 to $51,000. The variation in cost is due to the difference in engine capacity, the length of the cargo bed and other specific interior features that are available. The most popular combination of choice, however, is the 5.3-liter engine that makes 355hp. This middle engine is powerful, but at the same time gives the experience of a smooth family sedan. This makes it a popular choice for commercial as well as family use.
