Vehicles with Incentives & Rebates
Changes for 2013 are limited to two new exterior colors and the addition of powertrain grade-braking that uses transmission downshifting to ease stress and temperature build-up on the brake rotors.
For 2012, Chevrolet gives the Silverado full-size pickup a refreshed front end, available heated/cooling seats for the LTZ, and a new White Diamond Edition. Also new is an available navigation radio with built-in hard drive that eliminates the need for map data stored on DVDs.
The Ford F150 is the bestselling pickup truck (and vehicle, for that matter) in the country, but when you combine the sales of the Chevrolet Silverado with the nearly-identical GMC Sierra, it's a different story. The General Motors pickups outsell the Ford handily and also outsell all the import-label pickup trucks combined. This means GM has a lot riding on its all-new Chevrolet Silverado, because this truck will be its standard-bearer for years to come. With that in mind, GM engineers and designers have made a veritable shipload of changes to the pickup, including an improved chassis, more precise steering and a quieter, more upscale interior offering two completely different looks. Meanwhile, the Silverado offers segment-leading fuel economy thanks to the new line of Active Fuel Management-equipped V8 engines. And for those with an ecological bent, a Flex-Fuel E85-capable engine is also available.
