Is the 2018 Silverado the Best New Truck for Me?

As the recipient of J.D. Power's "Most Dependable Large Heavy Duty Pickup" award for three consecutive years, the Silverado has an unwavering reputation of strength and durability that few other trucks can match. Pair that with its available best-in-class fuel economy, best-in-class horsepower and class-leading maximum towing capacity, and the Silverado is undoubtedly one of the best choices on the market.

New for 2018, the best-selling Chevy pickup adds a rearview camera and 7-inch MyLink touchscreen to its list of standard features, giving truck shoppers even more to love. The eAssist package is also newly available nationwide.

To find even more information about this year's lineup, continue our 2018 Silverado review below.

What Options Are Available on the 2018 Silverado?

When you start shopping for a new 2018 Silverado 1500 in Evansville, you'll be able to choose from three cab styles (Regular, Double and Crew), and thee bed sizes (Short, Standard and Long). Several different trims are also available, including Work Truck, LS, LT, LTZ, High Country, and ZL1.

All models of the Silverado come with xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, a bed light, power locks, cruise control, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system and a USB port. As mentioned earlier in our 2018 Silverado review, a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility are also standard.

Throughout the lineup, there are many stylish upgrades and handy features available, from stainless-steel finish wheels, deep-tinted glass, front tow hooks and a tailgate damper to LED headlights and taillights, a trailer hitch, a heavy-duty locking rear differential and a trailer brake controller. Stop by our dealership to find out which model best suits your needs.

What Engines Does the 2018 Silverado Come With?

The 2018 Silverado 1500 near me can be had with three different powertrains. Most models are outfitted with a 285-horsepower, 4.3-liter V6 engine, which supplies a healthy 305 pound-feet of torque. Paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and your choice of RWD or 4WD, this configuration is also capable of towing up to 7,600 lbs.

Standard on the Silverado LTZ and High Country and available on all other trims is a robust 5.3-liter V8 engine. Producing 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, buyers will not hurt for power with this powertrain. Maximum tow capacity also climbs to a whopping 11,000 lbs., which is sure to be more than enough for most Evansville truck drivers. New for 2018, the V8 can also be had with the eAssist mild-hybrid system, which pairs the engine with a lithium-ion battery pack and small electric motor for best-in-class fuel economy (18 city/24 highway mpg).

For those who need all the power the Silverado 1500 has to offer, we suggest opting for the 6.2-liter V8 (optional on LTZ and High Country trims). Thanks to its 460 lb-ft of torque, equipped Silverados achieve best-in-class maximum tow capacity at 12,500 lbs. On top of that, drivers will also enjoy a class-topping 420 horsepower.

Is the 2018 Silverado Safe for My Family?

Whether you're on the job or hauling around the family, you'll enjoy the peace of mind that comes from driving a safe and reliable pickup truck. Standard, the Silverado comes with six airbags, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, and Teen Driver mode. There are also several driver assistance features available, including front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, forward collision alert and low-speed forward automatic emergency braking.
