The 2016 Chevy Silverado continues the long-standing tradition of competing with—and beating—Ford’s F-150. While you can look at the minor details, such as the Silverado’s great fuel tank capacity and larger dimensions for width and front headroom, there are other factors that hold greater sway over the full-size pickup truck enthusiast. In fact, we want to highlight three significant details that might help people realize that being tough isn’t quite as impressive as being like a rock.
The Power of More Horses in the Chevy Silverado
The 2015 Ford F-150 isn’t all that bad. In fact, it helps keep Chevrolet’s engineers on their toes. One of the best examples lies in the power beneath the hood: when the F-150 has a bit of testosterone injected into its system to achieve 365 horsepower, the Silverado enjoyed a boost of its own.
Armed with a 6.2L EcoTec3, the 2016 Silverado cranks out 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. This positions the Silverado as a leading workhorse that can also boast 12,000-lbs. of towing capacity. More horses. More power. More fun. More work.
The Silverado just offers more.
THE BENEFITS OF GREATER CONNECTIVITY
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado has been at the forefront of incorporating the latest technologies into an intuitively designed interior. It has offered 4G LTE Wi-Fi in addition to navigation and other forms of staying connected.
Now, the Silverado is the first full-size pickup truck to offer wireless charging. You have the ability to charge a compatible smartphone without having to untangle cords and find available outlets; instead, place your phone on the charging pad that is built into the cab’s center armrest.
Oh, and did we already mention the 2016 Chevy Silverado now also supports Apple CarPlay?
UNLEASH THE INNER HUNTER
By partnering with the Realtree, a leading camouflage and hunting equipment vendor, Chevrolet plans to make a special edition lineup of 2016 Silverado pickup trucks—which any outdoor or hunter will love.
Adorned in black paint and highlighted with camouflage decals, the 2016 Silverado Realtree is an enhanced Silverado 1500LTZ Z71 crew cab.
- 20-inch wheels
- All-terrain tires
- Z71 off-road package
This special edition will also feature Realtree logos on the hood and tailgate of the Chevy Silverado, as well as embroidered on the truck’s headrests.
There’s More to the 2016 Silverado 1500
On the exterior, you can enjoy the choice of Siren Red or Deep Ocean Blue paint jobs. But they say what counts is not on the outside, it’s on the inside: that’s why you can discover triple-sealed doors to help reduce cabin noise. Let us not forget about safety. The 20156 Silverado 1500 comes with a myriad of safety features like the IntelliBeam® high-beam assist, six standard airbags, and much more.
So don’t limit the Silverado 1500’s advantages to just the three features highlighted above. You can learn so much more about this incredible pickup truck offered by America’s most reliable truck brand.
