The brand new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado has been spotted during its testing and from what we’ve noticed, it has received several changes and upgrades.
2017 Chevrolet Silverado design of exterior
2017 Chevrolet Silverado is a full-size Heavy Duty pickup truck which has always been known for its great towing capacities, durability and strength. It has been redesigned inside and outside for the 2016 model, so we can expect some changes under its hood such as revised engine and transmission. Some sources also say that it the platform is expected to be re-engineered for better durability and more strength. When it comes to exterior design, new Silverado won’t show some significant changes since it has already been redesigned. It will keep its boxy and muscular appearance. The front end will feature its large chrome grille and attractive headlamps equipped with LED technology. It will probably get some minor refreshments all over the body, but because of the lack of information, we cannot reveal more.
Interior and features
Inside, 2017 Chevrolet Silverado is also expected to get a redesign. We will notice quality and soft touch materials such as leather, the cabin will be quieter etc. The interior will be decorated with wood trim which will give it warmer look. The dashboard will feature large touch screen with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system. As for the safety, it will be offered with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, front and rear park assist, airbags and so on.
Engine and performance
Under the hood of 2017 Chevrolet Silverado should be placed several types of engine. The base engine is a 4.3-liter V6 with the output of 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. The other option could be a 5.3-liter V8. This engine will be able to produce 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The last is a 6.2-liter V8 which will be able to make 420 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. As for the transmission, rumors say that it should get a new 9-speed automatic gearbox with FWD and for RWD it should be offered with 10-speed automatic transmission.
