2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4wd is a strong and capable workhorse.

Base Silverado 1500s include a 4.3-liter V-6 rated at 285-horsepower that’s more than adequate, but a 5.3-liter V-8 is the top-seller. The V-6 is rated to tow an impressive 7,600 pounds.

Both rear- and four-wheel drive are available as are three cab configurations—regular, extended, and crew. measure your parking spot carefully before selecting between one of the five bed/cab combinations available.

Has a softly squared-off dashboard that puts its 7.0- and 8.0-inch touchscreens up high where they’re easily visible. Controls are exactly where we’d put them and we like both the proliferation of USB outlets on most trims and the nifty toggle-style switches for certain controls.

The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has one of the highest levels of standard and optional safety equipment found on a full-size pickup.

History

The Chevrolet Silverado, and its mechanically identical cousin, the GMC Sierra, are a series of full-size and heavy-duty pickup trucks manufactured by General Motors and introduced in 1998 as the successor to the long-running Chevrolet C/K line.

The Silverado name was taken from a trim level previously used on its predecessor, the Chevrolet C/K pickup truck from 1975 through 1998.

General Motors continues to offer a GMC-badged variant of the Chevrolet full-size pickup under the GMC Sierra name, first used in 1987 for its variant of the GMT400 platform trucks.
