The Reviews Love the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a full-size pickup truck that returns to the lineup this year with a number of incremental changes and a range of competitive advantages. All of this has led to some praiseworthy 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 reviews from some of the auto industry’s most respected publications and critics.
Kelley Blue Book gives the new Silverado 1500 a “competitive edge,” while AutoTrader praises this model’s “elegant interior” and “modern technology.” Finally, Left Lane News gets to the heart of the matter by noting the new pickup’s “improved power and fuel economy.” Take a closer look at what the critics had to say before making your way from Cincinnati to Tom Gill Chevy in Florence, KY for a test drive.
Edmunds Calls the Silverado a “Solid Choice”
Take your pick between three powerful and fuel-efficient powertrain options. The 4.3L V6 engine makes 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, the 5.3L V8 engine gets 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, and the top-of-the-line 6.2L V8 dishes out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The best fuel economy comes from the RWD version of the V6 engine at an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway and 18 mpg city, but there’s no version of this pickup that gets worse than 21 mpg highway and 15 mpg city.
The Car Connection Praises “a Mother Lode of Technology”
There’s no questioning the ability of the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to get big jobs done with relative ease, and now it can do it while providing drivers and passengers with more comfort, convenience, and entertainment inside the cabin. This model is offered with two new touchscreens with a quicker Chevy MyLink interface and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Kelley Blue Book Says the Silverado has a “Competitive Edge”
Following a recent redesign, the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 takes a big step forward with a bold new look to go along with its bold performance specs and modern cabin. This includes an aggressive front and rear end designs, a more imposing front grille, and stylish new headlights with LED accents on upper trim levels. You can also get a hefty eight-speed Allison transmission on the 5.3L V8 engine.
