All-Purpose Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Pickup Truck at the Chevy Exchange
At the Chevy Exchange we're proud of the selection of reliable Chevrolet brand cars we offer. We try not to play favorites, but some models make it hard. Like the Chevy Silverado 1500 pickup truck for instance. This popular truck is great for work or play and is one of the most popular Chevy models we sell.
The Silverado 1500 is dependable, rugged, and strong inside and out. It comes with a choice of cab sizes - the two-door regular cab, the four-door double cab, or the crew cab with a full sized backseat and more legroom. Depending on the style you choose, they also come with a range of bed sizes and a choice of either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
Silverado Trim Levels
There are several Chevrolet Silverado 1500 trim levels to choose from:
- The Work Truck
- The LS
- The Custom
- The LT
- The LTZ
- The High Country
Additionally, the LT and the LTZ both have an optional off-roading package that can be used to customize to suit your needs.
Silverado Power and Efficiency
A V6 with 285 horsepower and 305 pounds-feet of torque comes standard on all of the lower level trims. But, the more powerful V8, which is standard on the LTZ and High Country and optional on all of the other Silverados, makes 355 horsepower and 383 pounds-feet of torque.
Additionally, you can add an optional eight-speed automatic transmission to the LTZ or High Country trims and get an astonishing 420 horsepower and 460 pounds-feet of torque.
As far as fuel economy is concerned, the V6 Silverado trucks get approximately 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The most powerful engine option gets around 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
When it comes to utility and getting the job done, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 12,500 pounds. So it's strong enough if you need to tow a trailer for work or the family camper on the weekends.
