“As with its rivals, today’s Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available with a wide variety of body styles, powertrains and trim levels. Thanks to this flexibility, the half-ton Silverado pickup is just as adept at serving as the weekday family car as it is at transporting home-improvement supplies or towing a boat on the weekends. And if one wants something sporty, there are always the SS versions that come complete with a rumbling V8, bucket seats and flashy wheels.
Older versions of the Silverado 1500 pickup have been praised for their strong work ethic but soundly criticized for their bland, often overly plastic-endowed cabins. The latest version, however, exhibits greatly improved fit and finish. Where there was once an abundance of lackluster design, hard plastic and uneven panel gaps there are now richly grained upholstery, softer materials and precise fitments. Of course, there are other more recently redesigned choices in the full-size pickup truck market, but the half-ton Chevrolet Silverado remains a solid pick no matter what it’s used for.
The Chevrolet Silverado half-ton pickup truck is available in three body styles (regular-, extended- and crew cab) and trim levels ranging from no-frills “Work Truck” to plush LTZ. The most popular trims are the midlevel LS and LT, which provide most features people want as standard, including air-conditioning, full power accessories and a CD player. Notable options include a variety of towing packages, the Z71 Off-Road Package and a navigation system.”
