KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

With its vast configuration options, engine choices and trims, Chevy’s 2017 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup is as much about capability as it is technology and comfort. If loud styling isn’t your thing, we think the Silverado’s tasteful exterior will likely hold strong appeal.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you’re seeking untraditional features in a traditional pickup, Ford’s aluminum body F-150 is lighter and more fuel-efficient than the Silverado, while the Ram 1500 and Nissan Titan offer the option of a diesel engine. Chevy’s smaller midsize Colorado can haul nearly as much cargo and offers a diesel engine.

What's New for 2017

Chevy’s 2017 Silverado pickup leads the Crew Cab segment with a 12,500-pound trailering rating. Teen Driver is made standard while the Enhanced Driver Alert Package gains low-speed autonomous braking.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Despite its boxy design, there is an eerie lack of wind and road noise when driving the full-size Chevrolet Silverado pickup, a testament to just how far GM’s suspension and body engineering technologies have come. Over big dips, the suspension does an admirable job soaking up impacts, although this same ability translates into a sometime soft and bouncy ride when traveling off-road. The Silverado’s steering feel is perfectly weighted, making for precise cornering and ease of use when negotiating crowed parking lots. The Silverado’s standard V6 offers good fuel economy but feels sluggish. We prefer either the 5.3- or 6.2-liter V8, although the latter’s poor fuel economy makes the 5.3-liter engine the best fit. GM’s excellent 8-speed automatic transmission delivers smooth operation and helps the Silverado achieve fuel economy on par with the F-150’s EcoBoost V6. We only wish it offered better response to throttle input.

Favorite Features

12,500-POUND TRAILERING RATING
On the Crew Cab models, a 12,500-pound trailering rating places the Silverado at the head of its class, with the Tundra limited to 9,500 pounds and the F-150 at a close 11,900 pounds.

APPLE CARPLAY
Even pickup owners want the latest and greatest in infotainment, which is why the availability of Apple CarPlay in the 2017 Chevy Silverado makes so much sense. With CarPlay, owners can integrate their Apple smartphones, making many of the apps and features available via the truck’s touch screen.
