The full size pickup truck is surely one of the most competitive and popular class in the automotive industry. The fact is that the top three best selling vehicles in the U.S. market last year were full size pickups. In 2016 Ford was first to build an all aluminium truck in a effort to increase fuel efficiency. In 2016 when Chevy introduced this new generation of 2018 Chevrolet Silverado they knew that Ford is coming out with F-150 so they planned ahead so now in the 2018 we have 7 Silverados with the new front end. This class continues to get more competitive each year.
This year Silverado is obviously refreshed to keep it more competitive against his long term rival the F series and many other. The styling changes on the Silverado are pretty nicely updated like the new HID projector beam headlights with LED accent lights and LED fogs too, full LED headlights are optional. The wheels are 17 inch alloy’s. The hood of the new Silverado is more sculpted and more muscular. The new grill is also more muscular and bigger, they did that to compete with F series.
The inside of the 2018 Silverado still have the same basic overall design as far as the interior goes. Steering wheel is fully wrapped in leather and have nicely concentrated buttons on it. Overall the Silverado have a very inviting and accommodating interior. Build materials and quality are pretty good and they offer very soft touch. The seats are coated in cloth or leather. Power driver seat controls with power recline and power lumbar. The infotainment and multimedia system (the Chevrolet MyLink) interface is updated for the 2018 an it have a lot better responsiveness and new app features such as Apple car play and Android auto.
On under the hood of the LT model is a 5.3-Liter V8 which is carried over from the 2015 model year and it produces 355 horsepower at 5.600 rpm and 383 lb-ft of torque at 4.100 rpm. EPA estimates are 16 city/ 23 hwy. Power-train options are: 4.3L V6, 5.3L V8 or a 6.2L V8 all mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and with two wheel drive or four wheel drive. The Silverado is running on regular unleaded fuel.
