The new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a solid choice in the full-size pickup thanks to a wide range of body styles, fuel-efficient engines, and an impressive interior. Furthermore, it comes with a quiet highway ride quality, solid build quality, many available configurations, and a comfortable interior. On the flipside, though, its six-speed automatic transmission is widely spaced for optimal towing capacity, doesn’t have any unique strengths for effective bargaining against its foes, and only the upper trims enjoy the eight-speed automatic.
2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Release Date & Price
It is still too early to speculate about when it will be available and sell for how much. However, there have been rumors that the Silverado 1500 might be headed to dealerships sometime in early 2018 with base Silverado 1500 Regular Cab price starting from an MSRP of around $27,000. This is speculative and is yet to be confirmed by Chevy. Stay tuned for more info on 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Release Date.
Even while the Chevrolet Camaro sports car and the new Bolt Electric get all the attention from the press, Chevy’s pickup line is arguably what keeps the lights on at the Detroit HQs. Among these is the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which perhaps commands some importance. Each year, Chevy sells in their thousands, and a wide range of these are available whether you are looking for a luxury-based top-of-the-line model or just a basic business workhorse.
Granted, most of the pickups offered by Ford – Chevy’s traditional foe – have been redesigned and this has therefore prompted Chevy to redesign its own in order to continue looking modern and sophisticated in line with the rest of the pickup segment. Some of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 changes are conspicuously present on the exterior and interior.
The exterior now has a refreshed styling that includes a trim-specific grille, LED accent lighting, and a revised hood. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for 2018 interior, on the other hand, comes with an upgraded seven-inch infotainment screen that features smartphone integration features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.
These changes come to improve an already outstanding and capable vehicle that reigns in the light-duty full-size pickup segment. It returns with a familiar powertrain that was available on the existing model, but the available V8 available for the LTZ and High Country models make it one of the fastest vehicles in its class. Throw in the Z71 package and you get a serious off-roading capability.
The segment isn’t without alternatives, though. Some of these include the Ram 1500, Nissan Titan XD, and the Ford F-150.
