2016 Chevrolet Silverado Release Date, Price, Interior, Engine – Undoubtedly, the new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and its previous versions has seen a lot of positive changes, which is a step in the right direction considering how the entire full-size pickup truck segment is evolving. The release date for the new Silverado truck should be anticipated to be during the 2nd Q of next year, according to credible sources privy to Chevrolet.
We can all reminisce how the Chevy Silverado truck received lots of improvements last year. Next year’s truck, although lacking in significant changes, will be redesigned, making impressive power gains, fuel efficiency and an all-round refinement. This newest truck promises tons of impressive capabilities and strengths most buyers are allured with and expect from a full-size Chevy trucks. It comes with considerable hauling and towing capabilities and tons of available configurations.
However, what sets the current generation from its forebears is a well-built and comfortable interior and an overall perfect daily driving experience. Nothing trendy about the interior design once you step inside the Silverado, but there is plenty of free space almost everywhere, especially in the prevalent crew cab body style, and the materials used are of top quality.
The new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado will also have to contend with other vehicles for a piece of the segment. One of our top picks is the Ram 1500, which offers a refined driving experience and a well-trimmed cabin, too. Another potential rival is the Ford F-150, which comes with a light-weight body and an impressive V6 engine.
