Chevy Silverado

Get the Job Done with the Silverado

Those in search of Trucks For Sale are almost certainly going to favor a particular make, and possibly even a specific model and trim level? Why? Because truck owners tend to rate highest among brand loyalists and are also well-aware of what capabilities they want, as well as those that they need.

For Chevy loyalists, satisfaction goes without saying considering the strength of both the Colorado and the Silverado. The latter, in particular, rates as the automaker’s most popular vehicle and still competes confidently among Ford’s F-Series (the reigning automobile of all-time, in terms of sales).


Silverado 1500

Take the Silverado 1500, for example. They say that the best things come in threes, and the Silverado 1500 makes perfect fodder for this argument. I’m no math whiz, but three cab configurations, three sizes of bed and three choices of engines make for numerous build options. And if you’re disappointed that there aren’t three trim levels, try multiplying that by 2. That’s right. The availability of six trim levels in all make it worthy of any consideration.

Whether you opt for the 4.3-liter V6, rated for 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, up to the 5.3-liter V8 delivering 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, you have all the get-up-and-go that you need.


Silverado 2500HD

Those with more demanding jobs may favor the heavy-duty capabilities, may opt for big brother. Still impeccably drivable, both the 2500HD and 3500HD are well-served by both the 6.0-liter gasoline V8 and the 6.6-liter diesel variant. Of the two, the latter serves up a monstrous 445 hp and 910 lb-ft when paired to an Allison 1000 six-speed transmission. With 3200 LB max payload, and up to 18,100 LB towing capacity (when properly equipped) the Silverado will get the job done.
