When you talk about pickup trucks, buyers have a few things they need to check off their list to commit to one. The most important ones are engine power, cargo space and the car’s towing ability. We’re not talking about a soccer mom’s crossover SUV here so utility and might take the lead over design and comfort. That being said though, the Silverado can’t be accused of lacking either modern looks or comfort, but it excels where it counts most, power, space, and towing ability. Let's dive into some details and see how the car fares on each of those chapters.
The truck can sit either 3 people in Regular Cab models or up to 6 in the Double and Crew Cab models. It will come with a front bench setting as standard, but that can be changed to front bucket seats in which case you'll be able to transport one less passenger. Regardless of your choice, there'll be plenty of room for people to be comfortable inside.
The Silverado has a lot of available engine choices, and the final list isn't even complete yet as at least one new engine model, a turbodiesel, will be available partway through 2019. The model starts with a V6 base engine, capable of producing 285 horsepower that's paired with a regular six-speed automatic. This will get you phenomenal fuel economy for a pickup truck, but will not be able to tow significant loads, so frankly I would expect very few people to order their Silverado's equipped with the base engine. Three upgrades are available, two of which can be considered among the best in class for the market segment. The first upgrade is a 4.3-liter V6 that's going to give you 310 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque. Two V8s follow, the 5.3-liter and the 6.2-liter engines capable of putting out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque respectively. The smaller engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic while the largest available engine will have a 10-speed automatic.
A maximum of 12.200 pounds can be towed by the Silverado to which 3000 pounds of load can be added, making it one of the most powerful trucks available on the market today.
On the inside, you'll find all the modern comforts and tech, like a 7-inch touchscreen for Infotainment, Bluetooth, a USB port, complete smartphone connectivity through both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a six-speaker audio system. Quality materials line up the cabin, and there are numerous luxury-grade upgrades you can choose from like a sunroof, an 8-inch HD touchscreen or a seven-speaker state-of-the-art Bose sound system.
