The Chevrolet Silverado is a series of full-size and heavy-duty pickup trucks that Chevrolet has manufactured since 1999. The range is currently in its fourth generation as of 2019. It is nearly identical to its corporate cousin, the GMC Sierra.
It is also one of the best-selling pickup trucks available in the United States.
Configurations consist of the typical pickup truck variety including 2-door regular cab, 2-door 2+2 extended cab, and 4-door crew cab.
Like the Ford F-Series, there are a number of different vehicle sizes. The most notable are the 1500, 2500, and 3500. However, heavier-duty versions are noted by their higher numbering and an ‘HD’ suffix, standing for ‘Heavy Duty.’.
The Silverado series is often compared to popular models from Ford’s F-Series like the F-150, F-250 and F-350, as well as the Dodge RAM, Nissan Titan, and Toyota Tundra.
Powertrains include a number of petrol options typically ranging between 4.4-liter V6s through to performance engines that are always V8s in excess of 6-liter. The newest generation also features the smallest petrol to date, a turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-4.
Diesel engines range accordingly, going up to the 6.6-liter Duramax V8 found in some of the larger models in the Silverado series.
There have been up to eight trim levels available for certain models. These range from the base work truck (WT), Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country. These trims include Chevrolet’s base trim levels, as well as off-road and performance options like the Custom Trail Boss and RST.
Chevrolet announced the Silverado EV, a fully-electric version of the pickup truck. It is set to be released by 2023.
