Special features for 2016

The full-size pickup truck segment has never been more popular, or more competitive. With its 2016 Silverado 1500, Chevrolet has staked its claim once again as king of the hill. The 2016 Silverado boasts a refined level of comfort, sophistication and brute force not found in trucks from Ford and Ram, specifically in the all-aluminum range of engines, where Chevy has laid claim to the most fuel-efficient V8 found in a full-size truck. In fact, at 23 mpg on the highway, the 5.3L unit provides a better return than the turbocharged V6 employed in the Ford F-150. Add in the fact that Chevy managed to make so many innovative changes while keeping the base price steady, and it's no surprise that the Silverado is a hit.
