About Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup finds itself in a styling and power war not only with rivals like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500, but Nissan’s new Titan and Toyota’s Tundra. Even with its recent styling upgrades, the Silverado’s look remains tastefully conservative, which for many truck buyers is a good thing. For these folks, the measure of a pickup’s value is in how much it can haul, tow and carry. Chevrolet’s Silverado has a higher trailering rating than the Tundra, and a host of new safety features to challenge the F-150. Unlike the Ram and Titan, the Silverado doesn’t offer the option of diesel engine, but its choice of three powerful gasoline engines helps keep the price down without sacrificing power or capability.

"I bought my Silverado used with 6658 miles on it. I have had it almost 2 yrs. Absolutely one of the best vehicles I have owned over 46 yrs of driving. The handling, style, comfort, ride, and gas mileage is fantastic for a truck. I tow a 4000lbs travel trailer with it all over the Western U.S. On level at 70 mph I get 17 mpg. Just unheard of. Without the trailer on level ground at 70 mph I get 25-26 mpg. Again unheard of. No mechanical issues. Wonderful to drive and travel long distance. Extremely quiet comfortable ride. Feels like a Cadillac. Only down side is its long wheel base makes it challenging to park at times. Small price to pay for such a quality and comfortable truck."

"I recently purchased the Silverado std cab work truck to use as a daily driver, hay-hauling, ranch pick-up. It has the 5.3L, 8 bed, sprayed-in bed liner, locking rear diff and tow package. Since the 2017s are in stock, got it out the door for 10K below sticker. It has an unexpected quiet ride, rear suspension is a bit stiff, obviously as its made for loads, but still has a nice ride. Excellent value, but no frills on this model..no carpet, crank windows, power locks but no remote (can pay extra for one from dealer). Its a basic modern version of an 80s pick-up truck, not a mamby-pamby foo-foo 4 door Kardashian-wanabe ride. I like it and will probably keep it for the next 20 years."

"I have owned GM products my entire life and this purchase was my 3rd GM Truck. I started with a 99 K 1500 5.7L, went to a 2005 Silverado 5.3L, and a 2010 Silverado 6.2L. All fantastic trucks, but this 2015 was over the top. I have this vehicle for towing a 8000 pound trailer and it does it better then my 2010 with the 403hp 6.2. It gets 18mpg towing, 18 mpg city, and i have seen upwards of 24 highway. It also has enough power for whatever you need, with the 355hp and 385ft/lbs of torque available at just 1,600 RPM it tows well and is darn fast. The truck is dependable, good looking, and can get through the wicked Michigan snow with ease. Best part about the Silverado, You get the power and reliability of a V8 with better fuel economy then the ecoboost V6"
