2017 Chevrolet Silverado is coming in three different styles – 1500, 2500 and 3500. They are quite similar from the outside, and the main differences lay under the hood. They are part of the heavy-duty category and are a great choice for all those who need strong and reliable pickup truck. Chevy has released some info about this truck, but there are yet some details to be published. We know what engine is going to have, and several important upgrades but there are still some unfamiliar details about the interior.
2017 Chevrolet Silverado Modifications
Two years ago it was significantly modified, and it got lots of new features. Perhaps the biggest modification this year is adding new upholstery. Materials are just great, and everyone will be thrilled with new seats. However, we don’t want to put a focus on the design. Chevy Silverado is well-known for its strong engines. Thus, we’ll start this article with engine specifications.
No car is perfect, but each one has something better than the rest in the class. In the case of 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, is the engine, the whole lineup to be precise. According to our sources, the 1500 model will have three different engines while the engines of the other two models are still to be announced. As you’ll see in the following few lines, the whole lineup remained pretty much unchanged. There will be three different engines, but unfortunately, a diesel engine won’t be available.
Firstly, there is the 4.3l six-cylinder. This is going to be the base engine with an output of 285 HP. In the last few months, you had a chance to read about it and see whether it is reliable on the road or not. The second option is 5.3l eight-cylinder. It is slightly powerful than the base version, with an ability to generate 355 HP. However, this is not the top of the lineup since there is one more that will leave you speechless.
The 6.2l is the last, but not least, the option with an output of 420 HP. It is the strongest engine of the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado so far, but we need to wait and see what is going to be under the hood of the other two models. There’re some indications that Chevrolet is going to launch “eAssist” hybrid system but don’t take this to the bank.
Interior and Exterior
As you already know, upholstery will be updated, and we’ll see some new materials in a cabin. There were some touches on the grille so you’ll spot a few differences. Double headlights are placed at the front which some people won’t find attractive. Chevy should reconsider this feature before releasing 2018 model. The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado looks very muscular and more elegant than most of the pickup trucks. The bumper is enormous and chromed. On each side of it, you will spot fog lights which look quite similar to headlights.
When you take a look at the back of the truck, you’ll spot rectangular-shaped tail-lights. They are sharper than the front lights and look more attractive. One of the best things about new Silverado is that it comes with more color options that its predecessor. Hence, it’s more personalized and should have bigger market share once it is released. To sum up, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado is stylish and elegant, just headlights don’t look very classy.
