Available in “half-ton” and heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 varieties, there’s a Silverado for nearly every purse and purpose.
And the most popular version on offer is undoubtedly the standard 1500 model, which was totally redesigned from the ground up for model-year 2019. The Silverado HD is similarly new for model year 2020.
Currently, the Silverado 1500 is available in no fewer than eight trim levels, from the base Work Truck model to borderline luxurious High Country variants. There’s even an off-road focused Trail Boss version that features a mildly lifted suspension, heavy-duty tires and Rancho monotube shock absorbers, among many other upgrades.
One feather in this truck’s proverbial cap is its all-new cargo box, or Durabed in Chevrolet lingo. With innumerable tie-down points and a reinforced floor, this bed also offers the most storage volume in its class, in some cases significantly more than rival trucks.
The Silverado’s imposing, squared-off front end certainly isn’t for everyone, but it looks appropriately tough, if not quite as elegant as the new Ram 1500. Inside, this Chevy’s cabin should be very familiar to anyone that’s been in a new Silverado at any point in the last decade. The overall layout is fairly simple, with easily accessible controls, a column-mounted shifter and double gloveboxes. Unfortunately, this truck’s interior is not as nice as what’s available in rival models these days, with too much hard plastic, questionable-quality leather, and a somewhat outdated look. At least engineers made the rear seat in crew-cab models more spacious. These rigs also benefit from nifty storage cubbies tucked away in the backrests.
