CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500


THE STRONGEST, MOST ADVANCED SILVERADO EVER

Chevrolet have put over 100 years of truck building know-how into the Silverado 1500 to deliver a truck that owns the road. A truck that redefines towing and all-round capability. A truck that boasts advanced tech, safety and comfort on a big scale. All this paired with the powerful 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 makes for a truck that builds upon the legacy of some of the most capable full-size pickups on the road.

Rise and shine

With its bold proportions and broad-shouldered appeal, Silverado owns the road. Chrome takes centre stage, from the grille and bumpers to the mirror caps, door handles and beltline accents. The appeal continues with 20-inch Polished Alloy wheels. Outside, heated power-adjustable, power-folding mirrors bring everything into focus. The muscular stance, chiselled hood and striking horizontal elements let you know these trucks share the iconic Chevrolet truck bloodline.

CLASS-LEADING POWER , AND THEN SOME

There’s a new kind of power in town. Silverado takes capability to a new level by combining the performance of an advanced 6.2L V8 with surprising efficiency and refinement. It also features enhanced torque delivery, start/stop technology and an advanced Autotrac system in the form of a 2-speed automatic, active transfer case. This system provides five modes: Auto 4WD, 4HI, 4LO, 2HI and Neutral, in addition to an automatic mode that seamlessly delivers power based on the road conditions and driving style.

THE DETAILS
