About Chevrolet Silverado 1500

In 2014, Chevy introduced a brand new design for the Silverado 1500, and now the 2015 introduces a few tweaks and improvements from the previous year’s model.

But all in all, it’s a truck and it looks like a truck. Yet inside, it doesn’t have to look and feel like a basic truck at all. It’s actually easy to handle (comparatively speaking) and just because it’s a truck doesn’t mean that amenities are not welcome.


Chevrolet Silverado 1500 0-60You actually have two options when it comes to performance. You can choose from a couple of V8 engines. The 5.3L comes with 355 HP and 383 pound-feet of torque. After you’ve properly equipped it, you can tow up to 11,500 pounds. If even that’s not enough, you can still opt for the 6.2L V8. That one has 420 horses and 450 lb-ft of torque. It can tow up to 12,000 pounds.

The 6.2L version now comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the others still come with the standard 6-speed automatic. But this may be temporary. Rumor has it that by next year the others will have 8 gears as well. But the 6-speed engines perform admirably. They offer a very smooth ride, and the gear shifts almost go unnoticed even when heavily laden.

But if you’re like most people, you’ll be satisfied with the base 4.3L V6 engine. It offers 285 horses and 305 lb-ft of torque, and that’s strong enough for most purposes. If you need a pickup to tow ATVs, snowmobiles, or a pleasure boat, then the V6 is more than adequate. Bring up a trailer along, and there’s no problem when you go up steep hills or merge into highway traffic.

The Duralife rotor design offers longevity, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are standard on all models. Each model also gets a new electric power steering system that’s much better than the hydraulic system it replaced.


As a truck driver, of course styling is important as well. And here there’s no namby-pamby tolerated. It really looks intimidating and masculine, even while the design seems much cleaner than before. You have wheels ranging from 17 inches to 20 inches and they’re all half an inch wider than their predecessors. If that’s not enough, you can get yourself some 22 inchers.

The aerodynamics has also been taken into account. They’ve mostly blocked off the grill design and the shape of the hood channel the air more efficiently. Add the flared fenders and the sculpted sides, and you’ve got a truck with a little more zing.

Inside the truck, the instrument panel design is a tribute to simplification. All the control knobs and buttons are all easily accessible and easy to operate. You won’t have any trouble at all, even if you’ve got work gloves on.

The usual trims of the Silverado 1500 are Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab. But now there’s also the High Country trim, and that comes with lots of luxury features.

As for the features, even with the standard sets you get just about everything you need. All the amenities are there for your comfort, convenience, and entertainment. And there are other options too so that you can convert your truck into a luxury vehicle. Listing them all will take up too much space, but suffice it to say that if you have something in mind, it will be available.


The comprehensive tests for the latest Silverado 1500 have not yet been completed, but initial reports are promising. After all, they improved some safety features for this latest model. The 2015 version have more safety equipment, the seating has been improved, and the cab structure is brand new.

The 2015 version has earned a 5-star overall rating in NHTSA tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not yet completed the whole barrage of tests, but so far for rollover it scored a 4 while on frontal and side crash tests it scored a 5.

There are several good reasons for the high scores on safety. It comes with basic crash-avoidance technology. That includes a front crash warning system which employs radar sensors, and detects an imminent potential crash so it can alert the driver.

Other standard safety features include hill start assist, stability controls along with controls over trailer sway, rollover protection, and head-curtain side airbags.

Safety options for the more security minded include a camera-based Forward Collision Alert system, a Lane Departure Warning system, bigger spotter mirrors to minimize blind spots, a tailgate-mounted rear camera, and front and rear park assist.

Fuel Economy

The gas mileage of the Silverado 1500 matches well with other light-duty trucks. For the fuel conscious, the V6 is the way to go. With rear-wheel drive, you get 18/24 mpg. That drops to 17/22 with 4-wheel drive. The rear-wheel V8 does 16/23 (16/22 for the 4-wheel) and the 6.2-liter V-8 is expected to go 15/21 mpg.

All in all, this is a no-nonsense truck that gives you all the comfort and entertainment you want inside. Unless you really carry heavy loads all the time, just pick the V6 and you’ll find it can do just about anything you need.
