A Full-Size Light-Duty with Brains
Usually, when drivers are breaking down the features they’d like in a truck, there are the ones that are no-brainers -- powerful performance, rugged style, etc. -- and then there are those features that evoke more of a “Well, yeah, that’d be nice, but this is a truck we’re talking about here.” Rather than subscribe to a similar tone of disbelief, however, the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Scottsboro, AL subverts conventions by taking the familiar full-size script and flipping it on its head. Don’t think a truck can be comfortable? Or don’t think that a full-size truck can feature intuitive technology features? In both cases, the interior cabin of the 2016 Chevy Silverado would beg to differ.
It all starts under the hood of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500, where three great powertrain options are now available. Standard for 2016 is a 4.3L EcoTec3 V6, one that rewards drivers with best-in-class standard torque and 24 highway mpg. Next up is the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8, which delivers best-in-class fuel economy for a gas-powered V8 along with an 11,000-pound towing capacity. Finally, topping the lineup for 2016 is a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 that roars with the confidence of 420 hp, 460 lb-ft of torque and a 12,000-pound towing capacity. In each case, drivers enjoy Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection and Continuously Variable Valve Timing to deliver performance that is smooth and confident at all times.
Features and Amenities that Put the Competition on Notice
Chevy has been making great gains in the technology game for years, and this is true of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 as well. The updated Chevy MyLink interface makes Bluetooth connectivity a breeze, allowing for hands-free phone calls, easy turn-by-turn navigation and access to musical playlists. It’s also the first full-size pickup to offer 4G LTE WiFi connectivity, offering an internet connection much stronger than a traditional smartphone and able to provide an internet source for up to seven smart devices. Factor in the new wireless charging pad built right into the center armrest, and it’s a wonder that the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 doesn’t do more boasting.
Of course, it has a job to do, and boasting isn’t part of the job description. The Silverado 1500 also gets several design upgrades for the new model year, including a new front end with a sculpted hood and signature LED lighting accents to give the model a decidedly muscular look. It also now features a distinctive body-colored grille to differentiate it from past model years, proving that it truly is the new face of Chevy strength.
