At a glance, the Silverado Realtree special blackout trim, black bow ties, off-road assist steps and black 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tyres. New front-end designs with a bolder, more sculpted appearance reflect the underlying strength of the Silverado’s high-strength steel construction. Aside from the looks, LED lighting makes the Silverado 1500 one of the most prominent looking trucks on the road.
Moving to the inside, the Silverado Realtree come with the Realtree camo logos and graphics, plus new phone integration via Chevrolet MyLink. The MyLink allows smartphone users to connect with applications such as navigation, hands-free messaging and more through Apple CarPlay or Android auto. Android auto is standard on a new 7-inch radio at the start of production and is planned for 8-inch radios later in the year. In addition, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity function provides a stronger connection in remote locations, for up to seven devices. New wireless phone charging is included on versions with front bucket seats and a newly available remote locking tailgate.
Also included is the legendary Z71 off-road package featuring Rancho monotube shocks, Hill Decent Control, an underbody shield and the G80 auto locking rear differential on Z71 versions. Other features include the standard four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife brake rotors, which offer up to double the service life of conventional rotors.
Chevrolet Silverado is the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pick-up, with high-strength steel construction backed by proven V-8 power and efficiency. Powerful, efficient V-8 engines are an integral part of the Silverado’s capability, and the use of elements such as direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and CVVT offer the best V-8 fuel economy in a pick-up (10l/100km) in 5.3L versions. The Silverado light-duty truck is capable of 420 horsepower and 623 Nm of torque from the available 6.2l engine. Furthermore, the 6.2l enables an 11,700-pound max trailering rating with LTZ Z71 crew cab versions.
