When choosing the right truck, many people look for function or exactly how it might meet their needs. Often this means that comfort is not the only thing a car buyer is looking for in a truck, but that their new truck can properly haul materials back and forth from job sites or even for personal needs. The conversation has often been between Ford and Chevrolet, but especially in the last couple decades, Chevrolet has taken the spotlight with better designs, higher safety, and general all around quality and dependability. For the last two years, the Silverado has ranked highest for large light-duty pickups, and the company continues to find ways to make improvements.

In regards to strength, it is designed with a steel frame, muscular design, and sculpted hood for a look and power that delivers dependability on a day to day basis. It also has high-end performance while still saving gas with innovative technology such as active fuel management, direct injection, and continuously variable valve timing. There is even an 8-speed transmission available for upgrade. It also has the ability for top of the line off-road performance while still offering up to 12,000 lbs of towing capacity to haul those really heavy loads with confidence. Furthermore, the most important part of its strength is the safety. It offers the Chevrolet standard airbags and safety cage of steel as well as many available alerts such as lane keep, front and rear park assist, forward collision, and Driver Seat safety.

Just like its strength, the Chevrolet Silverado offers top notch functionality. While it has the capability from its strength, it also has great comfort and technology. The cabin is not only spacious, but includes an aerodynamic windshield, tuned exhaust system, and inlaid doors designed specifically to keep the noise down inside. It also includes the option of leather interior and embroidered head restraints for ultimate comfort and luxury. At the same time, the technology allows for wireless charging, built in 4G LTE WiFi, a touch screen display, and automatic running boards that make loading heavy items much easier. The steering wheel has all the necessary controls built in for easy handling of the truck and personal business by answering those phone calls you need to take. Finally, for ultimate functioning, the available spray-in bedliner, built-in cargo box, hand grips, and CornerSteps allow for easy access to the bed of the truck for loading and unloading the heaviest of loads.
