According to current standards, the current generation Silverado can no longer be considered old because it was introduced recently in 2014. The only thing missing from this truck is the touch of the modern era. The architecture on which it is built is quite old and requires some improvements. This is about to happen with the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. According to some sources, it could arrive in early 2018 under the number MY 2019, but this has not been officially confirmed. The new model could benefit from the latest technology available for Chevy and lightweight materials used to build the chassis. The main purpose can be changed from steel to aluminum.
Exterior And Interior
Silverado has always had a simple but attractive look. The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado retains much of its old look with a square appearance. It uses the K2XX platform which has a body and frame architecture. Although composed of pure steel, a body of this new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado will be mainly aluminum to reduce the total weight and offer greater stability. The vehicle will stay on top on 20 inch chrome wheels. The front fascia of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado covers is the most attractive feature of the collector car. Two prominent chrome bars adorn the grill, as well as two row headlights. LED lighting technology will compose the lights. The huge bumpers of 2018 Chevrolet Silverado signature have been preserved. Chrome coatings are also added to mirrors and door handles. In all trims, the options of an individual cabin, a double cabin and a crew cabin will be available. The towing capacity of the truck has been estimated at 12,500 pounds.
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, although not intended for luxury, will provide a comfortable interior for passengers. For larger models, drivers can expect high quality leather seats and a steering wheel, as well as seats with heating and cooling as well as power windows. An 8 inch touchscreen will control the MyLink infotainment service. The entire console is large with large dials for controls. Expect more USB ports in the console, a smartphone integration setup, and a 4G communication system. Vehicle safety checks have been included in an enhanced driver alert package. It will include features such as collision alert relay, parking assist sensors, lane departure warnings and blind spot cameras.
Currently, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado has not announced any powertrain information. However, there is speculation on the Web and we take it into consideration. Some experts cite the most likely option 5.3 liters. This unit was used under the hood of several Ram and Ford vans. It has 355 horsepower and 383 lb/ft of torque and seems to be the perfect engine for the new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. This engine must be coupled to a six speed automatic transmission and must have a complete transmission system. The second option may be a 2.7 liter V6 twin turbocharger. It offers 30 horsepower less than the first option, but the time between 0 and 60 mph should be the same: 6.5 seconds for both engines. In addition to these two units, many speculate on three different units. However, we will not consider them because it is likely that these rumors are not true. Chevy has yet to confirm or reject these claims and publish more information on the engines. We can not guess the EPA rating, but you should not expect anything surprising.
Price And Release Date
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado will be launched in mid-2018 and will be available in six models: Work Truck (WT), Custom, LS, LT, LTZ and the High Country leather lining. The base cut will cost $ 28,000, while the High Country Cup price could reach $ 60,000.
