Discover the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Technology
The Silverado is known first and foremost for its impressive power, ruggedness, and durability. But towing heavy loads is not all this pickup is able to accomplish. The list of 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 technology features is impressive by the standards of any vehicle. You can access tools to help you navigate, access information and entertainment, and take some of the stress and strain out of serious driving. Learn about some of the standouts below before heading to Tom Gill Chevrolet to try them out in person.
Most major automakers these days design their own proprietary infotainment systems, but the Chevrolet MyLink stands out from the pack thanks to its long list of capabilities, its intuitive interface, and its overall smart design. You can use this system to make hands-free calling via Bluetooth, make commands via Bluetooth, stream your favorite music, and a lot more. What drivers come to love, however, is that the MyLink system puts everything at your fingertips. It becomes easier to use your Silverado to the fullest and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration.
Even just one phone plugged in for charging while you are driving can create a tangle of cords in the cabin. And with multiple phones it can really get crazy. A piece of Chevrolet Silverado 1500 technology that’s really exciting is its wireless device charging. Simply place your compatible smartphone on a designated pad and it automatically starts charging. That makes it a lot easier to keep the cabin uncluttered and to keep your battery full at all times.
This piece of technology has been designed for teen drivers, but it’s helpful anytime someone unfamiliar is driving your pickup. You can program speedometer limits, volume restrictions, and customized alerts to ensure whoever is behind the wheel is driving safely. You can also access detailed driving reports that give you a complete picture of how your pickup is being used.
4G LTE Wi-Fi
How many times would your trips or tasks have been easier if you only had a reliable Internet connection on the road? Through the OnStar telematics system, the 2017 Silverado 1500 broadcasts a strong 4G LTE Wi-Fi signal in and around the cabin that up to seven devices can connect to simultaneously. That way, you are always connected—no matter where you go!
Power Articulated Running Boards
The Silverado is the only pickup in its class to offer this tech feature. The running boards extend out when you need to get in the cabin, and then retract once you’re on the road. They can also shift from the cabin to the bed to give you easier access to anything you’re hauling.
