2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Overview

Full-size pickup trucks are Detroit's bread and butter, and when Chevrolet redesigned the Silverado for 2014 it took a conservative approach with the styling and stuck with a traditional steel frame and body. The Silverado 1500 shares its platform with the GMC Sierra 1500, but there are significant styling differences to appeal to shoppers with different tastes. Competitors include the Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra. The Silverado comes in regular-cab, double-cab and crew-cab body styles, and cargo-box lengths range from 5 feet 8 inches to 8 feet.

For truck buyers who need to tow 20,000 pounds or more there are 2500HD and 3500HD heavy-duty versions of the Silverado, which were updated last year.

New for 2016
All models get new front-end styling with prominent horizontal elements and LED accent lighting. High-intensity-discharge headlights are standard and LED headlights are available. The eight-speed automatic transmission is now available with the 5.3-liter V-8 engine on LTZ and High Country trim levels while wireless phone charging is included on all models with front bucket seats.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available and let passengers access apps from compatible smartphones through the Silverado's dashboard screen. A remote locking tailgate is also available, and High Country models can have power-retractable running boards.
