New 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 Continues To Sets The Standard


As one of the most dependable and longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road today, the Chevy Silverado sets the standard for dependability, reliability and load-hauling muscle. Your #1 Nevada Chevrolet dealer in Las Vegas, Ed Bozarth Chevrolet, takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the new for 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.


Built To Impress

The first thing you’ll notice about the new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado pickup is its brawny, yet contemporary good looks. The new Chevy Silverado features a refreshed front end. Gone are the traditional stacked headlights and much of the chrome brightwork, replaced by two large projector-beam headlight assemblies bookending an updated grille and punctuated with available LED accent lighting. The sculpted hood has more character, with strategically placed creases and bulges giving it an authoritative demeanor. The front and rear quarter panels feature dramatically flared wheel arches while the rear boasts two large vertical taillights.

While other automakers have taken a different road, Chevy makes a rock-solid choice with the Silverado’s high-strength steel construction that promises high-strength reliability for the long haul.

A Trend-Setting Interior

The new Chevy Silverado’s quiet interior continues to be a trendsetter. Sit behind the wheel of the new Silverado and you’ll instantly feel at home. Logically arrayed controls and switchgear are intuitive and easy to use. High-quality, soft-touch materials are used throughout for a more refined and upscale environment. The Silverado’s instrument cluster features two large easy-to-read gauges for the speedo and tach. Positioned in a row above them are individual gauges for electrical output, temperature, fuel, and oil pressure. Steering wheel-mounted controls put a variety of key functions at fingertip command.

If you are seeking a more upmarket and luxurious cabin environment, the new Chevy Silverado obliges. Top level trim models like the High Country offer deluxe appointments, including supple leather seating and unique wood trim.

Technology At Your Command

When it comes to innovative technology, the new 2016 Chevy Silverado gets out in front. New for 2016 is Apple CarPlay that allows you to access select iPhone® apps, navigation, text messaging and more. Android Auto will soon become available for models featuring the larger 8-in. touchscreen.

The available Chevy MyLink “infotainment” and connectivity suite allows you to access all of your connected devices. Get directions, make hands-free phone calls, stream your favorite music and more. A large 7-in. color touchscreen display mounted above the center stack and steering wheel-mounted controls lets you take command of entertainment, communication, and navigation functions. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® wireless connectivity that lets you make and receive calls on the go.

Power & Handling To Get The Job Done

Under the hood, the new 2016 Chevy Silverado pickup continues to flex its muscles. A new option for 2016 is a new 8-speed automatic transmission that’s available with the Chevy’s 5.3-liter V8. Three dependable and robust engine choices are available. These include the standard 4.3-liter EcoTec3® V6 rated at 285 hp with a best in class 305 lb-ft of torque and a 7,600-lb towing capacity. EPA-estimated fuel economy is a respectable 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway. If you need more towing capacity and power, the 3.5-liter EcoTec3 V8 amps it up with a healthy 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. It has an 11,000-lb towing capacity and offers best-in-class fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway. If you need a big brute of an engine to handle the toughest jobs and the heaviest towing, step up to the ultimate bad boy, Chevy’s muscular 6.2-liter Ecotec3 V8. This beast of an engine churns out a massive 420 hp and a prodigious 460 lb.-ft. of torque. It gives this engine a best-in-class rated towing capacity of 12,000 pounds. Whichever engine you choose for your new Chevy Silverado, you’ll know that it’s built to perform and built to last.

Chevy is also the only automaker to offer direct injection, active fuel management, and variable valve timing on all three of these potent powerplants for unparalleled strength, fuel efficiency, and performance.

Putting all that brute force to the pavement requires a sophisticated suspension setup for a confident and compliant ride. As Alexander Stoklosa of Car And Driver notes, “…the Silverado already boasts the best ride-and-handling balance in the full-size-truck realm, with well-controlled body motions, a firm but not punishing ride, and relatively sharp steering. And can other truck manufacturers please benchmark the Chevy’s brake-pedal feel? Firm and responsive, it’s a far cry from the mushy and over boosted units in other pickups.”

Taking Safety Further

Safety is always a chief concern at Chevy, and that’s why Chevy engineers ensured that the 2016 Chevy Silverado is well-equipped with the latest standard and available safety advancements. These safety features include 6 standard airbags and a high-strength steel safety cage. Available safety enhancements include,

  • Forward-Collision Alert
  • IntelliBeam Headlamps
  • Rear Vision Camera
  • Lane-Keep Assist
  • OnStar® Advisor Automatic Crash Response
  • Vibrating Safety Alert Driver’s Seat
  • Front And Rear Park Assist
