Chevrolet work trucks typically feature four-wheel drive, fully boxed frames and durable steel construction. The Silverado 1500 features a V8 engine and a towing capacity of 12,000 pounds, and the 2500 uses a 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel engine with a maximum trailer capacity of 17,900 pounds. Other features may include roll-formed steel-lined beds and four-wheel anti-lock breaks.
The Chevrolet Silverado is a full-sized heavy-duty pickup truck first introduced in 1999. The third generation line of Silverado trucks features three gas engine options and a touch-screen multimedia interface standard for most models. These trucks also come equipped with Bluetooth and USB connections, and many feature Bose surround-sound audio systems.
The 2015 Silverado 3500HD features a redesigned exterior and interior as well as advanced safety equipment and built-in 4G Wi-Fi on select models. These vehicles are available with either Turbo-Diesel V8s with Allison transmissions or standard gas-powered 6.0-liter V8 engines.
The Silverado's cab design features high-strength steel, and the hood, engine block and control arms are built using lightweight aluminum. The front end of the third generation Silverdo features a revised design and styling cues inspired by the 1980s-era Chevrolet C-Series. In 2014, the Silverado earned the North American International Auto Show's Car and Truck of the Year award.
