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.

"2017 Z71 Crew Cab 4x4. This truck really stands out - So quiet inside. Bose Stereo great addition. Highway mileage better than a 2017 Tacoma - 21 mpg plus. Went to Idaho for the eclipse and interstate at 80 plus mph was almost 22 mpg. Handling is superb - very nimble in town. Ride is well controlled - not abusive. Several tanks at fill up average 20 mpg. My Link interface is very seemless and responsive. Direct Iphone link is really a nice feature - especially the navigation. No issues to date - so initial build quality out of Mexico is excellent. Highly recommend this truck."
