2017 Silverado 2500HD New Car Test Drive
Silverado 1500 has squared-off lines and imposing shoulders and rides as high as a Silverado 2500.
High-intensity headlights with LED signature come standard on WT, LS, LT trim levels; LEDs with LED signature are used on LTZ and High Country.
Crew Cabs have large rear doors that make getting in and out easier, with enough space to comfortably swing feet through. Double Cab extended-cab models use doors that hinge in front, and they offer usable space for rear passengers.
Beds come in 8-foot, 5-foot, 8-inch, and 6-foot, 6-inch lengths. Slots cut into the corners of the rear bumper make stepping up to grab something out of the bed easier.
The Chevrolet Silverado interiors seem nicer and more comfortable than those found in the Toyota Tundra. Soft-touch surfaces are used near controls. Large knobs make it easy to control basic functions. Chevrolet MyLink offers Apple CarPlay capability, with 7-inch touchscreens standard, 8-inch on upper models.
Noise levels are comparable to those in SUVs.
Silverado High Country is the top model, with upgraded leather and wood trim and other features.
