Overview of the {make_model}

Learn about the Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Summary

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has long been a popular choice in Canada for both commercial and personal use. Its reputation as a solid and reliable workhorse is thanks to a generous sized pickup bed and good fuel economy.

The four-seater cab LD version has plenty of room for passengers too, and it tends to be the most in-demand model. Most generations of the vehicle have several variants, including smaller two-seaters. You can choose from a number of engine and model configurations, including the option of a powerful V8 engine or a 2.7 L turbo.

Safety

The main cabin of newer Silverados have a high-strength steel safety cage, which offers serious protection against impact. The vehicle also comes with six airbags. While there are a number of impressive high-tech safety features available on more recent models, these aren't fitted as standard. Optional safety systems in newer models like the 2014 include: 

  • Front and rear parking assist
  • Forward Collision Alert technology, which warns you when you're too close to the vehicle in front of you
  • Low speed automatic braking
  • Lane change and blind zone alert system
  • Rear camera mirror, allowing the rearview mirror to also function as a video screen for a wider field of view

Older models, such as from 2008, come standard with antilock brakes and stability control to keep you from skidding when you hit slippery terrain, as well as side curtain airbags. The 2008 also earned five stars on head-on collision tests. 

Interior

Interior comfort is one of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's strong points, especially on the four-seat cabin versions. The latest Silverados have been redesigned from the ground up with leather seats and dashes of chrome to create a sleek look. However, it's been said that the chrome can cause some glare in bright weather. Other interior features include:

Heads up display on newer generations, so you can view speed and navigation information on the windshield
Storage under and inside the rear seats, as well as a compartment in the centre console in the front 

Technology

Newer models, particularly from 2016, are packed with impressive technology. Not all of it comes as standard, but there are lots of options. The dynamic fuel management system optimizes the use of engine power to save on fuel consumption. The truck also features an infotainment system to keep passengers entertained on long trips. You'll also find:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
  • Music streaming apps
  • The ability to turn the vehicle into a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot

Older models like the 2009 came with the basics, like air conditioning, OnStar, CD player with MP3 compatibility and auxiliary, and satellite radio. Keyless entry and cruise control could be added with higher trim levels, such as the LS.

Space

No matter what generation of the Silverado you choose, you'll find it has generous interior space. The more modern vehicles have taken this further, with lots of leg and headroom for the driver as well as front and rear passengers. This makes the vehicle a solid option for families and those who need plenty of space to stash some gear. 

Comfort

The main features of the Silverado line are power and practicality, but it's also a very comfortable vehicle to drive. The interior design is simple but includes some luxury touches, such as the heated seats in recent models. Some drivers find Silverados to be quite bumpy when the truck isn't fully loaded. That said, drive selector modes are available on 2019 models, which can help smooth out the ride.
