Dependable 2016 Chevy Silverado Is “The New Face Of Strong”


The Merriam-Webster Dictionary describes the word “strong” as: “Marked by great physical power, striking or superior of its kind, effective or efficient, and not easy to break or damage.”

All of these definitions fit the new 2016 Chevy Silverado full-size pickup for sale near Kansas City at McCarthy Chevrolet, Buick, GMC in Marshall, MO perfectly. If you’re looking for a go-anywhere, do-anything pickup that can take on the toughest jobs or take the family on that long-awaited road trip, the 2016 Chevy gets it done. And as “the most dependable and longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road,” the new 2016 Chevy Silverado is in it for the long haul no matter where the road may take you.

The Silverado comes in three models: The Silverado 1500, Silverado 2500 HD, and the ultimate Silverado 3500 HD. Just like stepping up from middleweight to a heavyweight boxer, you can choose the level of strength and toughness to handle the big, bigger, and biggest jobs out there. And when other automakers are looking to use more aluminum sheetmetal, the Silverado sticks with high-strength steel for high-strength dependability.


The Power You Need When You Need It

Chevy’s legendary small-block engines enter their 5th generation with the latest technology, like direct injection, active fuel management, variable valve timing, and a new 8-speed automatic transmission for the 6.2-liter V8. From an outstanding towing capacity and smooth passing power to the brawny grunt you need to tackle those really heavy duty challenges, the 2016 Chevy Silverado packs a powerful punch. GM’s proven trio of muscular, world-class engines start with 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. This engine is a great choice when you need a truck that’s as competent on the job site as it is hauling your boat to the lake or the kids to soccer practice.

If you need to dial up the towing and payload capacity for work or play, the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 obliges with a robust 355-hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. With best-in-class EPA-estimated 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway and an 11,000-lb towing capacity, the EcoTec3 V8 gives you the power you need without denting your wallet.

Chevy’s awesome 6.2-liter Ecotec3 V8 is the pure, unadulterated definition of “great physical power.” With an astounding 420-hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the 6.2-liter gives you the power and performance to take on the very toughest assignments. The best-in-class rated towing capacity of 12,000 pounds lets you haul the biggest loads with confident authority thanks to such advanced features as:

  • Integrated Brake Controller
  • Tow/Haul Mode
  • StabiliTrak with Trailer Sway Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Auto Grade Braking
  • Rear Vision Camera
  • 4-wheel Disc Brakes with
  • Duralife™ Rotors


Comfortable Ride & Confident Handling

Driving a truck with all this unmatched power doesn’t have to be like riding a bucking Bhrama bull, quite the opposite in fact. Chevy engineers have worked overtime ensuring that the new 2016 Silverado offers a ride and handling that’s comfortable, compliant, and composed. As Bengt Halvorson, Editor of The notes, “With the Silverado’s redesign two years ago it made major gains in ride and refinement. In fact, with its well-tuned ride and responsive handling, it’s perhaps the most pleasant of all the full-size trucks from the driver’s seat. That’s thanks in part to a bit better handling control; front springs were made stiffer, and two-stage leaf springs and twin-tube valving add finesse.”

And as Alexander Stoklosa of Car And Driver states, “…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.”

Refined & Spacious Interior

The new 2016 Chevy Silverado shows its softer side with one of the most refined, spacious, and sophisticated interiors in its class. Even in regular trim, you’ll feel pampered by the Silverado’s extensive use of premium materials, logical layout of instruments and switchgear, and use of sound-deadening materials and triple-sealed inlaid doors for a quiet driving experience. For the ultimate expression of luxury, the Silverado High Country model offers plush leather seating and the type of deluxe appointments you’d expect to find on the finest luxury automobiles.

“Inside the 2016 Silverado controls are logically laid-out, mostly on either side of the steering wheel or in the large center stack,” observes’s Halvorson. “Materials themselves were given a major upgrade a couple of years ago, with most of the touchpoints now covered in a soft rubber material. Knobs and controls are large and easy to use with a gloved hand, and cabin noise levels are now on par with, if not better than, many SUVs, thanks to more in-floor insulation. A top-of-the-line High Country model allies with the GMC Denali models to provide serious top-lux cabin appointments, including durable leather, unique wood trim, and other upgrades that GM’s highest-end trucks have missed in previous generations.”

4G LTE Wireless Connectivity

Whether you’re using your 2016 Chevy Silverado as a rolling, four-wheeled office or for keeping the family entertained, you’ll find the latest in cutting-edge technology designed to keep you connected on the go. Chevy was the first automaker to offer 4G LTE WI-FI technology in all of its cars and trucks. The strong signal lets you connect up to seven devices. Connect to the Internet, play games, watch movies, and keep in touch with the home office like never before. 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 Latest Tech Toys

The available Chevy MyLink “infotainment” and connectivity suite allows you to access all of your connected devices. Get directions, make hands-free phone calls, and 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. All 2016 models with front bucket seats get wireless phone charging, and the center console is big enough to swallow a laptop. USB ports and an available 110v plug-in give you the power options you need to keep your devices charged up and at the ready.

Top-Rated Safety Features

Not only does the new 2016 Chevy Silverado have the power, the refined interior, and the technology you crave in a modern full-sized pickup, it also delivers where it counts the most, and that’s safety. Today’s new Silverado pickups from Chevrolet ensure the safety and security of yourself and your passengers with some of the most advanced safety technology imaginable. These safety features include 6 standard airbags and a high-strength steel safety cage. Available “active-driver” safety enhancements include,

Last, but certainly not least, this is one good-looking truck. Newly redesigned two years ago, the Silverado comes of age with an all-new look that’s muscular and stylish. As Bengt Halvorson observes, “In front, the look is tall and blunt, and it takes cues from Chevy’s heavy-duty (HD) trucks, which take their cues from big rigs. The overall effect is imposing, thanks in part to a hood placed at the same height as the HD trucks’, plenty of brightwork on higher trim levels, and a mesh honeycomb appearance for the grille. Meanwhile, the dual-dome hood and chiseled details of the sheetmetal help give it a high-shouldered, squared-off appearance, with squared off wheel wells that accent the profile.”
