Silverado Overview: What's Changed This Year?

There's a reason why the Silverado has been named the most dependable truck in America for almost three decades. It's one of the most reliable, long-lasting trucks available today and its J.D. Power Initial Quality Study awards back up this fact. Plus, in a recent bed strength test, the Silverado proved that its roll-formed steel bed is more scratch and puncture resistant than the F-150's aluminum bed.

Along with its dependability, if you purchase a new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado in Evansville, IN, you'll also benefit from several updates. This year, a capless fuel fill system has been made standard and two new paint colors have been added: Graphite Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic. Additionally, Silverado 2500 HD diesel models gain hood scoops that help cool air flow to the engine. A new package also debuts this year, the Silverado High Desert, and the contents of the High Country package have been revised.

Silverado Amenities & Configuration Options

Numerous configuration options are available, which is why 2017 Chevrolet Silverado reviews applaud the truck for its versatility. The 1500 offers three bed sizes (5'8", 6'6" and 8'), 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive, and numerous trim levels. Silverado 2500 and 3500 models are also available for heavy-duty needs.

At the base level, the Silverado comes standard with xenon headlights, Graphite-colored rubberized-vinyl, a 4.2-inch diagonal color display for audio, a USB port and auxiliary jack, power windows and locks, and cruise control, among other features. Upper trims gain premium amenities such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, leather seats, an 8-inch touchscreen and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Powertrain Ratings & Trailering Capacity

If you plan to lease or buy a new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in Evansville, you'll have a number of engine options. On all but the Silverado LTZ and High Country, a 4.3-liter V6 with 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque is standard. Optional on most trims, and standard on the LTZ and High Country, a more powerful 5.3-liter V8 engine takes center stage, generating 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Finally, a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque is available on the LTZ and High Country, providing more muscle for those who need it. Depending on how the truck is configured, towing capacity ranges from 7,600-12,000 pounds. Six-speed automatic and/or eight-speed automatic transmissions are available, varying based on the selected engine.

Innovative Safety Systems

Whether you're purchasing a Silverado to use primarily as a work truck or for camping adventures and other recreational uses, you can rest assured that you'll be well-protected on all of your journeys. 2017 Chevy Silverado reviews commend the truck's tough high-strength steel composition, as well as its wealth of standard safety features. Along with necessities like a comprehensive airbag system, traction and stability control, and OnStar emergency services, technologies such as lane departure alert/intervention, a Safety Alert Seat and forward collision warning are optional.
