About the Chevrolet Silverado

Backed by over a century of tireless innovation and engineering excellence, the legendary Chevrolet Silverado is now stronger, smarter, and more sophisticated than ever before. Today's Silverado is available in 9 individual trim levels, 6 distinct engine choices, 3 transmission options, 3 cab configurations, and 3 bed lengths to suit the needs of all types of truck shoppers. Helping you stand out from the ordinary, the bold exterior look of the Silverado features rugged yet functional design elements including its signature CornerStep rear bumper. Another signature work-ready attribute of the Silverado is the proven Durabed that's engineered with a roll-formed high-strength steel floor for superior durability. When it comes to interior comfort and innovation, no competitor can measure up to the Chevrolet Silverado. Cutting-edge tech features like its Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system help you stay in touch with your social circle. Since even the most experienced drivers can use some help from time to time, every Silverado comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist – a comprehensive collection of driver-assistive safety features designed to keep you protected from the unexpected.

What the Critics Say

"We've driven the Chevrolet Silverado in many iterations and with several of its powertrains and have found it commendable overall. In general, Chevrolet's Silverado drives smaller than it is and has good ride quality considering this is a rugged, body-on-frame pickup truck. Handling is taut with little body roll. Moreover, everything works well and in harmony, from its brakes to its steering." — Kelley Blue Book

"The Silverado 1500 succeeds in what a full-size truck sets out to do: perform on the job. Along with strong powertrains, the Silverado benefits from exceptionally spacious bed options. Rear bumper corner cutouts make it easy to step into the bed for loading and unloading, and the six-function tailgate isn't just a gimmick." — MotorTrend

What’s New for 2023

Back after an exterior refresh last year, the 2023 Silverado receives some small adjustments. Choosing the available turbocharged Duramax diesel engine means you'll enjoy an additional 28 horsepower and 35 lb-ft of torque compared to last year's model. Now producing 305 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque, these improvements are a result of a returned turbo, new pistons, new fuel injectors, and a new combustion bowl. Also debuting this year is a new ZR2 AEV Bison that includes a number of off-road-focused performance upgrades. Aside from those two additions, the Silverado is back for 2023 mostly unchanged.

Chevrolet Silverado Performance

Proven Performance

A true workhorse both on and off the job site, the Chevrolet Silverado has a robust engine lineup that's designed to meet the needs of virtually every truck shopper. If you're craving unparalleled efficiency to improve your bottom line, the available 2.7L Turbo engine generates 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque along with exceptional fuel economy. How about a capable balance of low-end response and outstanding MPG? Look no further than the available Duramax 3.0L TurboDiesel I-6 engine and 10-speed transmission that delivers up to an EPA-estimated 29 MPG on the highway**. Drivers can also opt for an economical 4.6L or the proven 5.3L V8. For the ultimate in performance, the range-topping 6.2L V8 cranks out an impressive 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque to help you conquer any obstacle standing in your way. When the tarmac turns to trails, no other pickup can compete with the off-road-focused Silverado ZR2 and its high-approach steel front bumper, off-road chassis and suspension calibrations, 33-inch off-road MT tires, and skid plate package.

Chevrolet Silverado Multi-Flex Tailgate

Work-Ready Innovations

Clever engineering solutions and work-ready innovations help make the Chevrolet Silverado a favorite among those who need their truck to work as hard as they do. A great example is its available Multi-Flex tailgate featuring 6 individual positions to help improve loading, unloading, and accessing the bed. Its standard Durabed truck bed design features a roll-formed high-strength steel floor that's stronger, lighter, and more durable than a conventional stamped steel truck bed. The large CornerStep rear bumper provides easy access to a massive 89.1 cubic feet of cargo volume on Long Bed, 71.7 cubic feet on Standard Bed, and 62.9 cubic feet on Short Bed. Optional LED cargo area and perimeter lighting makes it simple to keep working or keep the party going long after the sun has set. Whether you're putting in long hours fishing a project or making the most of your weekend plans, the Chevrolet Silverado has the innovative features you need to make the most of it.
